Me and insomniasexx in LA!

Robert, mkaram, me and flagamuffin on my front porch

blackbootz, me, mivasairski, Jess, _refugee_ in Baltimore

And since you asked, I came across Hubski while searching for the Higgs-Boson.

You must be shaken. That picture and moreso, the experience, must be traumatizing....I very much hope the other driver recovers and your insurance doesn't soar. At first glance, it seemed a person in a white shirt was lying next to your car.

As for bets, thanks for the reminder. My 2000-day hubskiversary is coming up in one week. I intend to make my donation then. Meanwhile, your 2000-hubday comes a week later, a few others follow hard soon after.

ala: Where do you live?

Why does your bio seem to be an advertisement? Are you a computer programmer?

A post by this user has been marked "spam." His bio (translated) says, "Good executive training program to do more than detect leaks." Given alaamiahclean's comments are all pretty much the same, it must be a bot, eh? But a bot with a limited vocabulary.

Sigh. Aren't there more interesting and creative bots out there to spam us? mk

I'm writing a personal letter to steve about hockey. We are both needing to play more hockey. I have NO idea how you manage to get a little hockey in given everything else -- but I guess it's either hockey or panic attacks.

Please write out lyrics if you can. I love when you do that. Oh, you were doing that as I was writing this!!

This is great.

    Update: A historical source has been found for one version of this quote. The source is Boris Bazhanov's Memoirs of Stalin's Former Secretary, published in 1992 and only available, so far as I know, in Russian. The pertinent passage, which appears near the end of chapter five, reads as follows (loosely translated with the help of Google):

    "You know, comrades," says Stalin, "that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how."

still true I guess

I meant in Russia.... There are elections. Occasionally.

At first I thought you were just being flippantamuffin - but when I thought about it, yes, it's true. Education led to developing nuclear weapons. Education led to modern industry which led to burning greater and greater amounts of fossil fuels which has caused climate change.

That quote was from The Outline of History published in 1920 -- before nuclear weapons and before an awareness of climate change -- makes me to suspect that Wells might have meant ethical education.

Looking further into Wells writings and quotations, I'm finding some fascinating thoughts.

I imagine you haven't had a swearing for some time.

EDIT I couldn't find Italian boots. Just checked. My current boots are Pikolinos, made in Spain.

I'm very happy to see someone seriously talk about boot buying. First of all it is definitely worthwhile taking time on this and have criteria. Then if you can't meet all the criteria, try for as many as possible. Here are mine:

1. Made in Italy

2. Be able to put them on. Seriously, some woman's boots are way too hard to put on and take off.

3. They MUST be cobbleable. This means that a shoemaker can put on a new heel if needed.

4. Can you walk as far as you need to wearing them. ? You won't know right away, but if they hurt in the store, they will still hurt after you leave.
