    I think it’s probably healthier to not have the “someone is WRONG on the Internet!” reaction so long as it doesn’t involve becoming completely apathetic.

    the WHO CARES trigger is quick-fire in 2009. choose your battles. actually i think this makes online living better. but it does seem quieter.

    Aluminium. Because it burns.

      I’ve never heard that I know that zinc and magnesium burn and the smoke can be toxic

    I’ve been in the “can’t be bothered” phase for a few years now. The only really bothersome thing intarweb wise is that I don’t really get to talk to all of my online friends as much as I used to. How can one miss IRC?!

    My favourite nonferrous metal is titanium, because it goes from looking really shiny to looking greyish then almost black over time. HJ’s and my wedding rings started off being like this to a blackish tinge now, and eventually they apparently go blacker. Pretty neat!

    I think I’ve gotten less likely to pipe up because I feel like it makes so little difference. There are plenty of idiots out there that will never listen, so I try to stick with people that seem interested.

    Aluminum. Every time you use some, Australia gets a little smaller.

    Judas Priest.

    My vote is better-tuned brain, though I suspect another explanation is possible: the evil-stupid aspect is hardening itself against small-scale attack.

    My favorite nonferrous metal is probably neodymium, because A) it’s freaking everywhere, B) almost nobody knows it’s name.

    Sodium, because of the way it reacts when you drop a chunk in water.

    Mercury = Beyonce

    mercury of course, because it’s poisonous and slippery and all crazy like that!

    i too have found myself in the land of Who Gives A Shit. i personally think it’s 1) good to not get worked up; 2) good to spend less time yakking into the deja-blabspace about Who Is Right etc; 3) good to have more time to spend on Better conversations and thoughts and etc. i feel happier for it, too.

    non-ferrous metal: copper. it makes me think of my grandmother.

        i wish i could claim credit for it, but that honor belongs to the esteemed Jerkcity.
