    Wall-E is an acronym. Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class. A friend of mine named Walter found to his utter astonishment that this is an anagram of his first name and surname, plus the instruction "locate the isle of Atlantis" the only problem being there is an A left over. Walter --- locate the aisle of Atlantis!

    Best story I've heard in ages.

    The lack of physicality in online conversation relates to the unconscious thread. The unconscious communicates with the body- feelings revealed through the eyes, blushing, stammering,wise eyedness, etc. Theyíre all tells. All speak to the richness of whatís underneath.

    Online communication is deliberate and deliberated. Itís commanded. Itís marketing. You see how someone would like to be seen rather than what they are. Thatís no less revealing or compelling, but it is less human.

    Someone should study people in person as they communicate online, observe the confidence of their keystrokes and their facial expressions. You don't tend to sit there like a robot. You might hurriedly respond or laugh at whatever someone's said or um and ah over your response.

    Also the msckintosg clan to which I belong I think Conquered all of Scotland at one point. Iíve got warrior blood.

    Luke can attest to the fact I look like braveheart at the moment. A scruffy maned insurgent.

    Someone said last week I looked like a cross between heath ledger and kirt cobain. (I hope they meant at their peaks, not how they look now)

    Since as long as I can remember, I have been afraid of commiting myself fully to any activity that goes towards a serious vocation. Performance anxiety I guess. It scares me to death that I don't know how to break this, especially being 25 and feeling like potential is draining by the hour.

    For me, the cocoon represents a supersedure of self-actualization. I gotta fucking break this, so if you have any tips, please tell.

    Giving things up. One or two major things. Depending on what your habits are. Perhaps drinking or mobile phones (that's what I did) maybe weed, maybe pornography, maybe meat. Some major change as an offering to the gods. Needn't have a moral undertone but it has to involve a major lifestyle change.
