I threw out a lot of junk yesterday as part of gearing up to move. A lot of junk. Like an extreme amount of junk. This leaves me in a position where all that remains is to throw out a lot of junk. A lot of junk. Like an extreme amount of junk.

I want to say something witty. I have nothing. Need more coffee. Coffee

I know the feeling. I often wonder if coffee is just as bad as any other drug addiction. I literally can't think straight if I don't have my first cup.

So if I stand on my roof in Northern Kentucky with a pair of binoculars and look at Pennsylvania, I could see the New Blue Tower from here?

Have you been to the Cincinnati Nature Center or ridden a bicycle on the Little Miami Scenic Trail?

Belief in reality requires a fundamental leap of faith.

Jump out a third story window and get back to me on that.

Parachute, net, bungee cable.

Is faith in reality really required then?

Open, catch, recoil.

I'd like to share that electric bikes are not bicycles. So get that monstrosity out of my bike lane!

Just back from a 25 mile bicycle ride .. shorts, tshirt, and full sunshine in the mid 70s.

Belief in reality requires a fundamental leap of faith. We accept axioms based on laziness, trials, testing, being repeatably told they are true, and/or evidence of consistent results - but we assume that such results are the consequence of interactions of things that we also axiomatically believe are true. Much of what we accept as 'truth' is more about pragmatism vs. whether something's intrinsically 'true' and that of course leads to another question -- "Does it matter?"

We like to believe we are autonomously hardwired to think freely, when it's most probably software based, and we are programmed to believe that we are operating on free-will, but it could all be a delusion.

Is the human software developed by a programmer, programmers, or infinite monkeys?

If something is programmed to act, believe, and think it's sentient, does it truly mean it's becoming self-aware or merely programmed to think so? We could apply the same question to the evolution of the human mind / brain - whether the source of the program is nature, random chaos, deterministic consequence, infinite probability, a higher power, entity, or purpose, etc.

Damn, this straight jacket makes it hard to type.

Still. Old. Friend! You've managed to kill just about everyone else, but like a poor marksman, you keep missing the target.

And don't forget.

No need to open em up just to blow out the dust. For dusty laptops I have an air compressor, just make sure you use the lowest pressure possible and still be careful lest you spin the bearings right out of the fan
I never heard of dust plugs, I can't see them doing any harm. Just don't block the vents on the bottom and sides etc. Now for a cool vidja https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWODdROCajU

Well sounds like dust off is out of the question, I like it because it's environmentally friendly, toxic and can kill you if you inhale it, the stuff just makes sense. /s (refrigerant-based propellant cleaner, which is not compressed air and incorrectly called "canned air" and usually contains difluoroethane; although some use tetrafluoroethane and tetrafluoropropene as a propellant.)

Thanks. I removed the question, thinking it was stupid, but you have a good answer. Thumbsup

I don't recall people having such a struggle with snow in Europe. Rarely did flights get cancelled (with the exception of Icelandic volcano eruptions) and the streets were mostly drive-able. I didn't hear many complaints about the amount of snowfall. In fact, quite the opposite -- people rejoiced, played in the snow, and hit the slopes. Is there a lack of preparedness or an infrastructure problem in America, or do we get worse winters than Europe?

K. Conway erased and replaced with a screeching 3 year-old sitting in a full diaper overflowing with brown nuclear gravy while banging on pots and pans in the middle of my kitchen floor in full sense-a-round and smell-o-rama. It would be heaven I tell you, pure bliss.

Funny.

I want an augmented VR, but make it an 'anti-reality'. I don't want to see more things, I want to erase them. Annoying chatty person in coffee shop, poof. Obnoxious car stereo, muted. Tourists on sandy beach, vanished, and replaced with a flock of seagulls. Etc.
