    It seems that all of the medical input is that a single noise pulse will damage your hearing somewhat, and that repeated pulses do more damage.

    The speed for airbag impact deployment is not very high, but I would rather take my chances with the noise than with discovering what it feels like to try to swallow the steering wheel.

    “Old Crow” was named in tribute to Doctor James Crow who has been credited as perfecting of the sour mash process used to make bourbon whiskey although no patents were filed in his name. He seemed to view it as medicinal and people who drank sour mash whiskey in moderation did seem to live to an older age than those who drank too much or who abstained from it.

    He was born in 1789, in Scotland, and died in 1856, in Millville, KY

    Yesterday.

    It was at a demo for a new “touch screen classroom display system” that allowed entry by either a desktop unit OR directly by your hand moving across the two by six meter screen.

    And with a real chalkboard beside the touch screen the real difference came in as brightness and ease of seeing it from the back of a large lecture hall.

    And a spellcheck mode for handwriting that was licensed from the Treo phone system.

    Screenplay ideas are “valuable” in the same way a large block of marble has value, but— like the marble— what you do with it is where the real value comes to the forefront. .You want a free idea that is “a pitch killer” idea?

    There are these two guys, okay, maybe three, who get some money and get wasted and do a whole lot of fun stuff, see, and one of them, well, one of them falls in love and has to straighten up for the girl. Unless he’s, uh, that way, and then he straightens up for the guy of his dreams, right?

    BTW, it has been successfully made into movies— at least fourteen.

    Finding them is difficult unless you do element sorting and plot structure analysis, and you will never confuse any two of them.

    Never really wanted to run with the bulls.

    Way, way the heck in front of them, maybe, but with them?

    Nope.

    That’s a kid’s card game, isn’t it?

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who remembers that.

    Bananas wind up being both a fruit and not a fruit.

    .

    It is a herbaceous plant, a succulent herb related to ginger but the structure of the pod is such that it could logically be a fruit— from a non-fruit tree that isn’t even really a tree.

    A chip, connect to power supply via airbag triggering with direct connect to speakers, even if otherwise off— that actually sounds minimalist.

    I also admit thst the first time I heard about “pink sound” I more or less ignored it as some kind of pun or joke. But 160db going off on my left shoulder is a serious issue. Today I looked at the driver’s side door airbag placement and winced.

    I listened to several “pink noises” and came to one conclusion: The top forty hits have nothing to worry about.
