05/27/2003 Archived Entry: "Hume is Pimp"

Here I am, reading my reading notes for philosophy. I kinda lost my handout for chem, so I can't type up my lab report. ;_; I don't want to lose the points, but what can I do without the handout? I don't know what the hell I'm supposed to calculate for. -_- Oh well, back to the subject of philosophy.... I actually really enjoy philosophy. I suppose it appeals to my natural thirst for knowledge and, what I seem to think, is a natural ability of mine to comprehend abstract concepts. However, as much as I'd like to find a single philosopher I really like, I can't seem to settle on one quite yet. We're starting with the early such as the Upanishads and the Taoists, and moving into more modern stuff such as Socrates, Aristotle, Descartes, and Locke. I honestly can't say that I really liked the early, early stuff. I suppose the concepts just seemed to make more sense with the advent of Socrates. He was cool. Then there was Aristotle, then Descartes, etc. ^_^; Right now, we've covered up to Locke and Hume and I can say that I like how they think. I suppose I favor Hume a little more though because I like his ideas about there being no absolute certainty, how God was fabricated to provide protection and salvation for man, and how God's existance cannot be proven (no, I'm not an atheist, I'm agnostic). He does seem the most reasonable thinker thusfar. Of course, he's also the most modern of the thinkers we've yet covered. I'm sure there will be others I'll like more as we cover more material, but for now, Hume is pimp. ^_^ An interesting idea has popped into my head occasionally: I really wouldn't mind majoring in philosophy. Of course, what the hell can I possibly do with a philosophy major? Teach? Psh. I don't think I'll become a teacher. And darnit, if I do, I'll probably teach english if anything.

Yesterday my dad made me change the oil+filter and rotate the tires on my car (the car was at the 5k mile mark). Yay! My front tires have better grip now! ^_^ I noticed before that I had a tendency to understeer under not-extremely-hard acceleration and to veer slightly off-course at higher (freeway) speeds. But that's all gone now from what I can tell. I wonder if my tires were wearing unevenly.... *scratches head*

Since I said I'd do it, here's the Narue no Sekai ending theme: Icecream sung by Chiba Saeko. Easily my favorite recent anime theme. I find it very calming and easy to listen to. And, like I stated before, it so conveys the theme of innocent love if you ask me. Very cute. ^_^ I figure I'm not using enough of my monthly transfer anyway, so have fun downloading it. ^_^ It's not exactly easy to find, considering how the anime is so new (it started airing this spring season).
