'wine wenlin.exe', grok? Learning curves are insurmountable. Just try to move along, move along. I have everything I could want. lost: the Doi Inthanon jacket. Found: sweater, shoes, shades, sewing kit. What more can we ask for?

And yes, I could unleash some French on y'all. Lenni Brenner anyone? Merka deserves to fall. Bill Bonner et al, economics as 'moral philosophy'. Don't think Adam Smith foresaw rampant corporatism. Or the self-destruction of the working class. Or Israel for that matter.

Right understanding does not mean that I have to be nice. O the conundrums.
If you know anything that is hurtful and untrue, don't say it.
If you know anything that is helpful and untrue, don't say it.
If you know anything that is hurtful and true, don't say it.
If you know anything that is helpful and true, find the right time.
What is hurtful? I endure it, you can too. I do not need a new toxic waste machine created from the rape of the earth and destined to consume power that might be better used elsewhere. However. I have been accepted to the MSc program and my netbook is barely adequate. I'm having enough fun creating and attacking virtual machines that I simply must have more RAM, more disk, more CPU, more more more. I have the resources to afford it, or will by Christmas. I try to understand the consequences of my actions. It's actually rather fun. Like Nazis and Zionists.

New York. Tel Aviv. AIPAC. Riding my scooter from Kengsinton to Williamsburg I saw some things. Anti-semitic? Like Finklestein. Can't handle the Brenner? I'll cherry-pick. 'It can be said, with scientific certainty, that, without the unbreakable unity of Arab and Jewish progressives, victory over Zionism is not merely difficult, it is impossible.' Who cares? Thankfully, relatively few. Anti-Abrahamic I am, vehemently even virulently. I'll try not to make it violently. The Muslems fed me tonight. They make good food. I think they're happy here. It's a bit tough on this old rugged individualist, the fact that I do not matter at all. But that is scientific fact. It is supported by the evidence. Merka's 'supremacy' is not. Time's up. It's going to hurt. If we choose to perceive it that way.

Not perceiving sciatica as pain is good practice. Dad asked about it when I mentioned the impossibility of really sitting. I talked about the Diclofenac instead of all the exercises. Why? Why do we do what we do, say what we say? Think about it. He's seen most of the regimen. The folks supplied me with more Ibuprophen than I'll prolly ever be able to afford at Merkin prices. Except that may all change. The working class may realize the hideousness of their Trumpish dreams. Mantra. Greed is not good. My Wall Street clients don't want to hear it... affordable health care is not a sin. I don't want Israel to burn any more than I want Gaza to burn but you know I don't mind if Wall and Broad go up in smoke. And what comes around goes around. So where's my right thinking on that?

Revisit free-will vs. determinism. It isn't an argument. You perceive your free will. Cause and effect are intractable. The butterfly's wings in Peking are the hand of god. This and only this. No chosen people, no promised land, no savior no atman. It is written. The flapping is inevitable because of everything that has gone before. Everything.

The Diclofenac wore off in the middle of the night or I engaged in some posture that aggravated, the non-pain pain woke me about 200. Never really got back to sleep. Thinking about UofL, thinking about lesson plans, thinking about the new machine, trying to find a non-non-non-painful position. Give up and read a littlei Langacker to tire the eyes shut. Give up napitating at 700. Argue with me about tea or coffee while I stretch, compromise on a cup of each. Walk to DragonStar AKA The Apple Store (it's China, don't ask). It's closed. Next door is the mega bookstore. They have gold. In a few years I might be able to afford some. They have watches. No tourbillons, I need to go to Thailand for so many reasons, I'd have less excuses to consume if I could retrieve the G5. They have guitars, for less than $50 I can get a piece of crap, for about $70 a slightly less crappy piece of crap. They have a flexible piano, no MIDI, don't want it. Consumer culture. Where is the future? Tomorrow's lesson plan, theoretically. The 8th grade. Literally. But my digression digresses. Back down, DragonStar is open, drool over an AirBook but know I'll be putting OSX onto a Chinese thing unless Chicken wins the lottery. And calls me back. Heheheh, where does fantasy fit into right thought? Price OSX. I'm entitled to the $30 upgrade since I own Tiger but it only comes with one license. The $60 full install has five. I will buy it. Of course I have the SW already but I want it legit. Now there's a wormball that needs to grow in my economics drivelling: Intellectual Property vs. The Mattster. Later. Now I finish tell you my day. Catch bus. Miss the one I know. Take a new. Examine map. This may be fine. This may be very bad. It goes along fine for a while. Then slightly bad. Through the pedestrian mall, you know where. Then very bad, bail. Walk back toward the mall. Get some chocolate donutcookiethings. Yum. I believe I spent the next hour or so meandering in widening circles as I kept seeing skyline repeated but not landmarks. So close yet so far. Next wander I may know the landmarks. Finally arrive at Carrefour about 1200. Get some baby books and flash cards, I'll share with the kgardenoids if they'll teach me Mandarin. Get the HD that was my real purpose. Well, and the cheese, get that too. Can't find a sewing kit. Checkout is a pleasure as ever. Hungry. Restaurant too crowded. Back to the hood. Miss the 631 again. Fine, 15 minute walk, can't get lost this time. My neighborhood store has a sewing kit. Of course. Make a roast beast samich for late lunch. I think it's beef. Thinly sliced, rolled up, frozen, on thawing smells almost high. But after cooking fine. Cook with same peppers you saw in beautiful color lo those months ago, well not the same but the same, you know what I mean. Toss on a slisachededah, lo tho I have walked through the valley of Philly I present you with the Tianjin cheesesteak. And it ain't half bad if I do say so myself. Make another. Watch the Who. Nap. Dinner with you know who.

Working on the Master's is probably gonna cramp this. Tell me you want it, I'll make an effort. All that trouble to make it easy and haven't touched it in weeks. May be months if you don't kick my cage.

'wine wenlin.exe', grok? Learning curves are insurmountable. Just try to move along, move along. I have everything I could want. lost: the Doi Inthanon jacket. Found: sweater, shoes, shades, sewing kit. What more can we ask for?

And yes, I could unleash some French on y'all. Lenni Brenner anyone? Merka deserves to fall. Bill Bonner et al, economics as 'moral philosophy'. Don't think Adam Smith foresaw rampant corporatism. Or the self-destruction of the working class. Or Israel for that matter.

Right understanding does not mean that I have to be nice. O the conundrums.
If you know anything that is hurtful and untrue, don't say it.
If you know anything that is helpful and untrue, don't say it.
If you know anything that is hurtful and true, don't say it.
If you know anything that is helpful and true, find the right time.
What is hurtful? I endure it, you can too. I do not need a new toxic waste machine created from the rape of the earth and destined to consume power that might be better used elsewhere. However. I have been accepted to the MSc program and my netbook is barely adequate. I'm having enough fun creating and attacking virtual machines that I simply must have more RAM, more disk, more CPU, more more more. I have the resources to afford it, or will by Christmas. I try to understand the consequences of my actions. It's actually rather fun. Like Nazis and Zionists.

New York. Tel Aviv. AIPAC. Riding my scooter from Kengsinton to Williamsburg I saw some things. Anti-semitic? Like Finklestein. Can't handle the Brenner? I'll cherry-pick. 'It can be said, with scientific certainty, that, without the unbreakable unity of Arab and Jewish progressives, victory over Zionism is not merely difficult, it is impossible.' Who cares? Thankfully, relatively few. Anti-Abrahamic I am, vehemently even virulently. I'll try not to make it violently. The Muslems fed me tonight. They make good food. I think they're happy here. It's a bit tough on this old rugged individualist, the fact that I do not matter at all. But that is scientific fact. It is supported by the evidence. Merka's 'supremacy' is not. Time's up. It's going to hurt. If we choose to perceive it that way.

Not perceiving sciatica as pain is good practice. Dad asked about it when I mentioned the impossibility of really sitting. I talked about the Diclofenac instead of all the exercises. Why? Why do we do what we do, say what we say? Think about it. He's seen most of the regimen. The folks supplied me with more Ibuprophen than I'll prolly ever be able to afford at Merkin prices. Except that may all change. The working class may realize the hideousness of their Trumpish dreams. Mantra. Greed is not good. My Wall Street clients don't want to hear it... affordable health care is not a sin. I don't want Israel to burn any more than I want Gaza to burn but you know I don't mind if Wall and Broad go up in smoke. And what comes around goes around. So where's my right thinking on that?

Revisit free-will vs. determinism. It isn't an argument. You perceive your free will. Cause and effect are intractable. The butterfly's wings in Peking are the hand of god. This and only this. No chosen people, no promised land, no savior no atman. It is written. The flapping is inevitable because of everything that has gone before. Everything.

The Diclofenac wore off in the middle of the night or I engaged in some posture that aggravated, the non-pain pain woke me about 200. Never really got back to sleep. Thinking about UofL, thinking about lesson plans, thinking about the new machine, trying to find a non-non-non-painful position. Give up and read a littlei Langacker to tire the eyes shut. Give up napitating at 700. Argue with me about tea or coffee while I stretch, compromise on a cup of each. Walk to DragonStar AKA The Apple Store (it's China, don't ask). It's closed. Next door is the mega bookstore. They have gold. In a few years I might be able to afford some. They have watches. No tourbillons, I need to go to Thailand for so many reasons, I'd have less excuses to consume if I could retrieve the G5. They have guitars, for less than $50 I can get a piece of crap, for about $70 a slightly less crappy piece of crap. They have a flexible piano, no MIDI, don't want it. Consumer culture. Where is the future? Tomorrow's lesson plan, theoretically. The 8th grade. Literally. But my digression digresses. Back down, DragonStar is open, drool over an AirBook but know I'll be putting OSX onto a Chinese thing unless Chicken wins the lottery. And calls me back. Heheheh, where does fantasy fit into right thought? Price OSX. I'm entitled to the $30 upgrade since I own Tiger but it only comes with one license. The $60 full install has five. I will buy it. Of course I have the SW already but I want it legit. Now there's a wormball that needs to grow in my economics drivelling: Intellectual Property vs. The Mattster. Later. Now I finish tell you my day. Catch bus. Miss the one I know. Take a new. Examine map. This may be fine. This may be very bad. It goes along fine for a while. Then slightly bad. Through the pedestrian mall, you know where. Then very bad, bail. Walk back toward the mall. Get some chocolate donutcookiethings. Yum. I believe I spent the next hour or so meandering in widening circles as I kept seeing skyline repeated but not landmarks. So close yet so far. Next wander I may know the landmarks. Finally arrive at Carrefour about 1200. Get some baby books and flash cards, I'll share with the kgardenoids if they'll teach me Mandarin. Get the HD that was my real purpose. Well, and the cheese, get that too. Can't find a sewing kit. Checkout is a pleasure as ever. Hungry. Restaurant too crowded. Back to the hood. Miss the 631 again. Fine, 15 minute walk, can't get lost this time. My neighborhood store has a sewing kit. Of course. Make a roast beast samich for late lunch. I think it's beef. Thinly sliced, rolled up, frozen, on thawing smells almost high. But after cooking fine. Cook with same peppers you saw in beautiful color lo those months ago, well not the same but the same, you know what I mean. Toss on a slisachededah, lo tho I have walked through the valley of Philly I present you with the Tianjin cheesesteak. And it ain't half bad if I do say so myself. Make another. Watch the Who. Nap. Dinner with you know who.

Working on the Master's is probably gonna cramp this. Tell me you want it, I'll make an effort. All that trouble to make it easy and haven't touched it in weeks. May be months if you don't kick my cage.
