    Netflix has a series, “Terrorism Close Calls.” Episode 5, “Operation Overt: The Transatlantic Liquid Bomb Plot” is the story of why there are limits on carry-on liquids. It is not as silly as it sounds. In August 2006 a multinational terrorism task force in the UK shut down a plot to blow up 7 planes with bombs made from liquids carried on in sports drink containers. 2000 people would be on the flights across the Atlantic and never be heard from again.

    His whole wretched story, starting with that first kiss, was documented in 1979 by Pink Floyd.

    Good morning, Worm your honour

    The crown will plainly show the prisoner

    Who now stands before you

    Was caught red-handed showing feelings

    Showing feelings of an almost human nature

    This will not do

    Call the schoolmaster!

    To think there are still people who believe “The Wall” was fiction…

    I think we’re just too ugly or something. Or maybe it’s the way we are. Before I retired I worked where everybody ended up being given a nickname. One lineman was “Biscuit” and another was “MoonDog.” I was called “Party Time” because I was judged the least likely person in the world to party. Hmmph!

    This one will definitely be a learning experience! Half a year in on The Virus and we know so very little – how many people have been infected (I think it is a matter of faith that a lot of people with mild symptoms don’t report anything, and prison studies suggest up to 96% of the infected show no symptoms), what the false-negative rate is for virus tests (in a recent video describing autopsy results of 12 patients who died of COVID-19, three of the dead people tested negative on nose and throat swabs), and even when we can say it is quashed. New Zealand recently went 100 days with no reported cases and suddenly three appeared. The frightening thing is that with all these characteristics, it isn’t nearly as lethal as SARS or MERS, its predecessors. What would we have done if it were? I’d rather have meteors pass kinda close by.

    It took a lot of years for me to understand the positive side of the ’60s. I think we get too close to history-to-be to get a good view of it. “If we only knew then what we know now” are words we live by whether we like it or not.

    It is so strange thinking back to things that seemed so minor at the time but were at least signs of things to come.

    Has anybody kissed somebody their own age as a small child?
