As a kid geek I loved the whole meson thing. Also, while the bird was only gradually revealed the ugly detail was wonderfully awful.
One of my favorite movies when I was 11 or so.
Every Spring when the winter fruit is still out and the summer fruit is coming in I reflect that it was not very long ago that only powerful heads of state had such a selection.
Being an old codger, I’m happy to see the snow stop at under an inch.
Google is Skynet.
I am saying pettiness works against you. It makes absolutely no difference to any of us what his skin looks like. Ditto with that hair. Those are not signs of untrustworthiness (unless you are a big Kardashian fan); perfidy is a sign of untrustworthiness. I am not a fan of Donald Trump but that is primarily because I don’t like his style. It’s too brash for my tastes, but that is how he stays in the limelight. I don’t like some of his policies and I do like others. If we are going to be the media’s puppets we can focus on trivialities; if we are going to be serious voters we have to look beyond the showmanship.
If you are not making fun of him for his skin color, you are better off not mentioning it. It makes you sound vapid.
I have a wife who moves money around – not always to the benefit of autopay! If I knew exactly what day the payment was coming out I could stash it in the account that is just in my name until it is time, but if hundreds of dollars suddenly appeared in the checking account it would evaporate quickly. I love her dearly but that is a battle that never ends.
We dropped TV service a couple years ago and missed it a bit for a day or two. I think what most of us failed to recognize is that 300 channels does not provide a hundred times the quality viewing that three do. Schlock multiplies like rabbits.
You have a point there: we dress for its expected effect on others. Yet… the Late Great Paul Harvey was a commentator on TV for years back when I had a full head of hair (almost to my shoulders). Later he was exclusively radio and newspaper, recording his “news and comment” show in studios for years. Later he was able to record at home, and it wasn’t long before he was recording in his bathrobe. Listening to his work, he noticed a slide in polish and quality that matched the attire: he wasn’t taking the job seriously.
