    >>Selfies are a lot better than handing the camera to a stranger and asking them to take a picture of you.

    Depends. If you make sure to ask someone who’s got a decent camera around their neck, they probably have a clue. OTOH Don’t ask the people taking their holiday snaps with a cellphone. Plus sometimes it’s a nice way to start up a conversation.

    It is fascinating how little kids don’t care about gender, then both sides become more and more convinced that the other is completely horrible . . . until suddenly they become the most interesting thing on earth.

    Dry not. Do. Or do not. There is no dry.

    I have had two nicknames that were intended as insulting epithets by the people who started using them, and became endearments from people who didn’t know the original circumstances. One of those same people seemed to have a knack for such misfires; he started pointing out that a classmate from Idaho looked like a potato and should be named Spud; the intended victim embraced the title as an honorific for Idahoans, so everyone else did too, and Spud ran for class president a few years later under that name.

    Just in case anyone is so nervous that they are counting comments here to be sure that there are more than sixteen of them . . . .

    Human babies should look cute. If a baby doesn’t look cute there’s probably something wrong with it. This is part of the “uncanny valley” effect – that is, we can deal with anthropomorphic animals and E.T. and R2D2 that are totally nonhuman, but get weirded out by human-like images that are “just not quite right” (eyes too close or far apart, ears unusually placed), precisely because they suggest abnormal humans.

    Just imagine if they had had daylight savings then, too.

    “But I know I already looked there twice!!!!!!” . . . . I would say it sucks to get old, OTOH when my father was my age he’d been dead 15 years, so I still win.

    Don’t know Percy Faith, but if you hum a few bars I’ll fake it.

    Or: Sometimes, even with the best intentions, one says the wrong thing. Or it comes out wrong in context.
