Got doored by a taxi driver yesterday. Ouch. A good few scrapes and lumps (my right elbow looks like a bomb crater that's trying to heal itself), but I'm still in one piece. The bike is mostly okay, but the left shifter (the side he clipped me on) is thoroughly broken.

I hope you left a good dent in his door. >:(


Not sure. Was a bit too shaken to check. His door left me with a nice shifter-bill though. However, I have insurance, so hopefully it'll be okay.

Being hit by a car has to be pretty scary. I hope you were wearing a helmet.

It's very odd... 'scary' is almost the wrong word. I basically had mild shock, and it's an oddly unemotional thing. Your body just sort of reacts, and it's very physical - I felt buzzy and exhausted all at once. When I got home I told my girlfriend, have her a hug, and cried, but it was so strange. I wasn't sad at all, I just had to, for a few seconds. The chemicals were just lined up. I'm not ashamed of having a bit of a weep if I'm emotional, but this was very different. After that it was just 'Phew, well that could have been worse'.


As for the helmet... nope! In all honesty though, I had a long think about the whole helmet debate, and quite seriously... the evidence that is out there indicates that drivers give you more room if you're not wearing a helmet, and that they can aggravate a lot of injuries. It's also worth pointing out that they offer no protection at collision speeds - they're only tested for vertical drops from a given height. Nice if you fall off your bike, but if you're flung any distance... well, it's just foam. You're head is a lot stronger.


Anyway, all my scrapes were on my outer limits so to speak. My belt looks like I was sharpening knives with it. My bag is TOUGH AS NAILS though. I knew that when I bought it, but bloody hell - barely a mark, and it bore the brunt as I slid along the tarmac. They make some seriously tough nylon these days. Very future.

The conspiracy is trying to kill you. Stay safe, Wilmore.

It has happened before, after all:

A large man with fair hair wearing sunglasses and a dark coat approached me while I was in Gothenburg, grabbed me by the shoulder, and said in what seemed to be an eastern European accent, "We know who you're associating with; drop it". He then threw his cigarette at my feet and walked quickly away, around the corner. I should add this was in the city centre, at the bottom of Kungsportsavenyn where it meets ?stra Hamngatan, if anyone knows Gothenburg. I've lived in Sweden for several months on two separate occasions, and have a pretty good knowledge of their accent when speaking English- he definitely wasn't a local.

I was pretty shaken at first, because frankly, it was weird. In a bit of a haze I picked up the remains of his cigarette, which was only about half smoked. It had some writing on it in eastern characters- probably the brand or something, I don't know. Fitted with the accent though. I'm not involved in any weird activities- I am an upstanding citizen. I don't associate with anything even remotely subversive aside from fes.org & .net; I don't visit any other conspiracy sites or anything like that. This is the only thing he could have been referring to.


By the way, I'm not so self important to think that an agent of the conspiracy went out of his way to freak me out. Most likely this guy didn't even know what I was involved with. He was probably just some goon who got my picture and a message to deliver. Personally I think it's because I associate with the .net team; Dogplatter and Username were the people referenced in the BBC link. DP is also talking about organising real world protests, so their ideas about promoting FET are a little more 'in your face', and possibly considered more dangerous.


I don't know. I never really believed that the conspiracy would attempt to do anything to involve itself in this place, because ti didn't make sense, but now I don't know that I can come to any other conclusion.

That was very different. Not very physical, just really paranoia inducing. It was a really odd month... just weird looking back.

You poor poor man :(

My gluten free pizza rolls were pretty popular

Dough: (I use the dough cycle on the bread machine but I'm sure it'll work the same by hand. And you don't need to knead gluten free dough much at all so easier than making real pizza dough)
300ml water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Three quarters teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
450g flour
1 tablespoon psyllium husk (not essential but it really helps the dough be moar normal-like)
1 teaspoons Xanthan gum (again not essential but it sort of replaces the gluten so makes the dough much much better than without)
1 pack dried yeast (11g)

Make it into a dough and leave to rise for a bit, doesn't really rise much though so don't worry if it doesn't seem to do much.

Then roll out dough into a rectangle. Spread on a little pizza sauce and some toppings and cheese. Keep it a thin layer so it rolls easier. Roll it up and cut slices. Put it in the oven 225C for about 10 minutes.

Groovy. Even the non-coeliacs loved them. I think I might have to make some moar soon actually, when I get monies to buy ingredients.

We used some kind of almond flour for the dough, it lacked something to be desired. But overall, it was fantastic and I look forward to the leftovers.

I'm guessing it's a cavity. I've never had one before, so I've nothing to compare it to. But it's a hole in my tooth and it hurts like fuckafdksfjsa.

Plus my wisdom teeth are starting to come in and those have been starting to hurt lately, so it was only a matter of time before I ended up needing a trip anyway. Blargh.

I have no idea how bad an idea it is to take a couple of painkiller/sleep aid pills only two hours after taking two just-painkiller ones, but I am near the point where I don't care just stop this pain please.

I think a cavity is a safe bet. I have 4 fillings and I've had my wisdom teeth removed (from the jaw). Getting those removed really isn't that painful, the only thing that sucked was the stiffness in my jaw. I could only eat yogurt and apple sauce for like 3 days.

When my wisdom teeth were removed, there were complications and my jaws were in agony for weeks afterward.  I spent the whole time lying around my house taking Vicodin.  I even grew a beard, because it hurt to shave.

All the tales of wisdom teeth pain does not have me very thrilled to get them taken out. But honestly, I don't care as long as it means my mouth not randomly hurting so much of the time. And I can say without a doubt I've been through worse. Surgery is not fun.

How bad is getting cavities taken care of?

That might have just been the Swans effect.

Also, don't worry too much if it's a cavity. You won't feel a thing under anesthetics and it wears off pretty quickly.
