Wood hanging – for those of you who worry

My brother and I made this.

20171203_134011

It’s four feet by three feet and looks even better in person.

I’ve been wrestling with the question of whether to virtue signal more as a way of expressing that this blog isn’t the only thing I do. I decided in favor of virtue signalling more. You have to get out in the world and make something of your talents, and I’m doing that every day. If my example shames you into getting your life together, then it’s my responsibility to show off a bit.

Can’t say I’ll remember to do it every day or even catch up on my e-mail but action is the measure of conviction and conviction is the measure of belief. My actions will catch up to this new belief…eventually. I am only a turtle, after all.

Interests -> Energy -> Value -> Relationships -> Momentum -> Framing -> Focus -> Mastery/Flow -> Happiness -> Success

    Okay, you definitely have enough artistic talent to make the glorious t-shirts. Hopefully you don’t beat me to it.

    NOICE WORK M80

    Your brother is really talented. Your panels were shit tho

    • a says:

      Fuck you asshole

      • David Bagelberg says:

        I don’t actually know which parts were made by aeolipera and which parts his brother was responsible for.
        (I actually like it a lot)

        • a says:

          Oh ok. Would you mind telling me if you have any neurological abnormalities? I already know I misunderstand Aspies pretty often.

          • David Bagelberg says:

            I don’t mind telling you that I’m sorta weird and have a hard time making and keeping friends, but that doesn’t count as a neurological abnormality in and of itself. I would guess I’m probably closer to neurotypical than the average person who lurks around this part of the internet. I usually enjoy the company of aspies, but I don’t think I’m one myself. I don’t have prosopagnosia but I might have alexithymia. Diagnosing myself with anything is kinda gay though because I’m fairly well-adjusted (not bragging).

            Oh yeah, and I talk about myself too much… :0

          • Aeoli Pera says:

            You’re rapidly improving with a bare minimum understanding though.

            • a says:

              I’ve been much more clear and specific.

              Also, Im starting to think that I dont know what the proper effective mindset for an aspie actually is. Emphasizing self compassion, humility, and just feeling in control of things seems much preferrable to Trump/NVP/ “Magic of Thinking Big”/ Winner Effect dopamine-testosterone mindset.

              A combination of these two mjndsets is good for everyone, but Im still not sure its enough to keep aspies out of… lets call it “Supreme Dark Lord” mode.

              Basically, I have come to the realization that if you do not let go of bitterness(From isolation, being misunderstood, and misunderstanding normies)
              Or if you allow the Winner mindset to be a simple facilitator of arrogance and a superiority complex,
              then instead of an Alpha you become a gamma.
              And it is because you can not fool your mind into TRUSTING YOURSELF! Only through repeated action towards the things the you want will the lower areas of the mind actually believe the mindset and ALLOW you to lead yourself. Your superego isnt elected, but the rest of your brain does vote- like Congress. And you need to make those sub personalities trust you and see something in your goals for themselves.

              Sound crazy, but cant express how important this is! Will probly flesh out later.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          I got that, no worries. Thanks. Please don’t take offense at ‘a’, he’s very zealous to protect his friends once he’s invested himself in them.

  4. Pseudorandom Bypasser says:

    The snowfall effect adds to that nicely.

    Have you watched Twin Peaks, Aeoli? If not, you should.

    All those miters!!! I immediately looked at how to copy it. Nice.

    I dug an old radio flyer out of a trash heap last week, cleaned the rust and loose paint off. Then using an old aluminum crutch, I made a custom frame, extended the wheel base 12″ and dropped the “cab” 5 inches.

    Can’t figure out how to insert pics on android, but here’s a link to a pic of it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JJhKkHnOGckqa2EPo3y1njfRU0FA0Qy9/view?usp=drivesdk

    I still have to paint everything, but the kid isn’t born just yet, so I figure I have at LEAST a year.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Requires access, have sent request. I can upload it to wordpress for linking if you want, or there’s always kek.gg

      • Hezekiah Garrett says:

        I granted access. Please post it. It ain’t much but I am proud.

        • Aeoli Pera says:

          Honestly, I never would have thought of doing a hot rod-style body on a little red wagon, that’s impressive.

          • Hezekiah Garrett says:

            Thanks, mang!

            I hope you fit all those m iters together and THEN cut off the borders. Although, if you initially fit everything WITHIN the 3’x4′, my respect increases exponentially.

            • Aeoli Pera says:

              My brother has a saying: “when we measure, we make mistakes”. So every pencil line was drawn relative to something else that was already in place, we took no measurements.

            • Hezekiah Garrett says:

              See, if you ever do it again, make sure all your miters fit, but let the other ends stick out past your border. Then, cut the borders with a circular saw. It’s like magic!

            • Aeoli Pera says:

              …Looking back, I think my brother wanted to do that but he didn’t want to take away my enjoyment of the miter saw. Huh.

            • mobiuswolf says:

              That’s awesome. needs slicks.

            • Hezekiah Garrett says:

              Thanks, Mobius! But there werent any slicks in that yrash heap!

              I’m thinking about getting a second wagon at harbor freight that has 10″ pneumatic tires, and making a second wagon for my nephew, using the wheels I have now for the front ends, and putting the 10″ knobbies on the rears of both wagons.

              The wife controls the purse strings though. She’s better with money.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Oh and yes, it turns out I can use a miter saw with autistic precision. I’m inordinately proud of my cuts.

  6. mobiuswolf says:

    @hezekiah Same here. I’d just put it in a bowl by the door, more or less. That doesn’t really work. ;o) Gotta keep checking the dump. Jess brought me back half a roll of chicken wire yesterday.
    One inch- weasel proof!!

  7. mobiuswolf says:

    @a “the proper effective mindset” Nothing is universal. I’m with you, follow your brain. Anything else is just frustrating.
    You’re more likely to become sigma in the end, uninfluenced by crap. jmo

    • a says:

      > Nothing is universal
      Very complicated. Thats why I am going into much different things now like JP’s biblical series. If the same things keep cropping up everywhere (They have!) then its worth taking heed. Of course I wont ever really stop. Just think in a decade what a body of info I will have collected! Will help my mission and anyone else’s for that matter.

      • mobiuswolf says:

        “body of info I will have collected” lol Yeah, wait until 6, my file system sucks. I just have to wait for answers to percolate up. Everyone knows who to ask, but they frequently don’t like the answers.
        I can’t really think of it as a body of info, more like the internet. it’s there if you can figure the right keywords.
