Out of the Blue

I mentioned recently that I was experimenting with removing refined sugar from my diet for a while, concerned that getting half of one's daily calories from soda is not what keeps Jack LaLanne going at the age of 90. Actually in looking up Jack on the Wikipedia to check his age, I see he was a self-described "sugarholic" up to the age of 15, so he can be my inspiration here. Anyway, I am pleased to report that this has (unsurprisingly) resulted in me having a good deal more energy, an enhanced appetite for real food, and by all accounts, a generally more pleasant personality. That last bit suggests that, while I was not going off on any serious rampages, I may have been a bit of a non-stop Cornholio for over 20 years now! Are you threatening me?

And damn I hate people who use RAR. Now I have to go find a bloody decompressor. (Don't go pointing me at things -- I'm getting one for Linux).

Uhh...I thought rar originated on Linux?

But what seems even more wrong is… why do you need a rar decompressor for reference to HL2? HL2 is Windows only?

That’s a deep kiss too, like the Europeans. You know the French they have to unhinge their jaw to show love.
