03:56 pm - A Fotamecus Experience:
On Sept. 6, 2004, on my way home from Chicago, I began a chant of "fotamecus, fotamecus, fotamecus. . ." I was calling on the servitor who distorts and compresses time when it will help us.

It's 3 hours from Indianapolis to Columbus: exactly 180 miles. I exited Indianapolis driving at 65 miles per hour. The time was 6 PM.

I arrived in Columbus at 8 PM, and my speed did not exceed 65 mph.

FOTAMECUS!
Current Mood: blankblank
Current Music: "Twelve Volt Man", -JB

Yes, I suppose it does sound almost exactly like the original essay. However, in my defense I wasn't exactly trying to do anything new with the servitor. I was just utilizing him in the way presented.

I suspect that the essay has a lot to do with the uses I perceive for him: had the original essay been about making a cake bake faster, I would apply Fotamecus to baking, rather than to road trips, and this post (written a long time ago and just not uploaded until today) would probably have been about a really good carrot cake that I needed to finish before my girlfriend's birthday party.

Damnit, now I'm going to have to try that, aren't I? Who wants carrot cake?

Sometimes when I'm late for class/whatever, and I need to find a parking space, I keep repeating "Hail, Asphalta, full of grace-help me find a parking space" in my head, and usually within a minute or two one opens up right in front of me.

It's like Twlight Zone weird, or something, heh heh.

You know I don't think I've smiled all day and that made me laugh hysterically for some reason. I think I need to add you to my friend's list.

Okay, so I was chanting on my way to work(left the house late), clocked in, and stayed for fourteen minutes. I walked to my car, got in, then realized six minutes was missing somewhere. Unless it took me six minutes to walk to my car that's not far away. o_O?

I normally chant -
"Green from here to there and back again, thank you very much..."

I know not very original, but hey it works...

i've made it from bloomington to columbus in exactly three hours. once. but, i must admit, i may have ventured slightly above 65 mph. (on the other hand, we also left b'ton at about 4:30 in the morning, so there was absolutely nobody else on the roads, which definitely helped.)

Are you sure you didn't cross a time zone? Not disbelieving, necessarily, just wondering about a less-than-miraculous explanation...

All times are listed as they were noted on my car's clock, which I know I didn't reset. But that would be a damn good explaination, otherwise. :)

...and indy and columbus are in the same time zone, for this half of the year anyway.

If you chant "fotofinish, fotofinish, fotofinish..." will you arrive precisely on time?

Hm. That sure could come in handy. I'll have to try it sometime.

Slight typing error, there. But, brilliant. Fotamecus is great.

There's a *servitor* for that? Damn. I've been doing it the hard way.
