      @redqueencoder there are some people you have yet to meet? Frankly, you are sounding even more grown-up and wise than usual here.

        @larand they put a suitcase handle on it an declared it as luggage.

          @33mhz thanks. I need to trim a lot of deadwood from my follows. Relatives and causes shared with people I actually have met dragged me back to FB. Losing 3hrs/day to it kinda scared me so I have gone cold turkey...back home now where the news matters.

            @johngordon that is also my choice for the twilight, resting only long enough to focus on a few stars.

              @shawna you are making a grownup...one way or another...call it evil but I can sorta see what kind of grown up you are working on.

                @cgiffard @johngordon @hyboticsI @duerig think a very useful distinction between intelligence [Bluegene beating a human at chess, e.g.] and sentience [ask a Buddhist what it means?] is being opened up here. GO with it, my smart friends!

                    @johngordon to the advice of a very smart friend of my dad: "do every thing you can, every day that you can", I suffix "but not more". I have a few years on you, John and lost a few useful tendons ignoring my skill/fitness realities.

                      @thinkprogress I guess this is the 21st century after all: you can be headlined as a "drifter" and still have an "online presence". I am having my Andy Warhol moment: in the future, every nobody will be somebody on the internets.

                        @doctorlinguist @shawna @mlv @gtwilson I am so glad you folks watch these things ... so I don't have to. Never mind "Peak Oil" , we seem to have a boredom epidemic that movies subtly exacerbate in their attempt to grow rich on it.

                          Fibonacci sequence hidden in ordinary division problem [kottke.org] If you divide 1 by 999,999,999,999,999,999,999,998,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999 (that's 999 quattuordecillion btw), the Fibonacci sequence neatly pops out. MATH FTW!

                            @johngordon we have enough problems to solve. we don't motivate enough creativity outside of a few narrow concerns.

                              @rabryst on reading first sentence: if 5 years old and still fit to post, it must have been prescient on reading last sentence: of course its not stale..our childhoods are our future.

                                    @whoisashygirl @joanna agreeing with all up-thread ...I don't even have a TV, or cable. Relationship depictions on TV only work because the writers can assume audience already has 99% of the script wired into their own behavior. Skimping on reality.

                                      @duerig @johngordon these industries produce goods for the 95%. Unless dystribution of wealth trends stop heading toward a consumer class that barely has money for food and fuel, industrial survivors will be super-efficient...probably giant.

                                        @keita interesting. Probably some very old code buried in the bowels of printf()...uh, whose printf is it?
