the icicle of damocles

March 22, 2009

Do you think winter is finally gone? Or is its returning hanging over us like the Sword of Damocles?

I'm doing my part by keeping a snow shovel in my car, trying to use Murphy's Law jujitsu to reduce the chance that I'll need a snowshovel in my car.

I hate life without sunglasses, but I think sometimes in the morning it's good and energizing to walk around squinting in the sun. Is there any science behind that idea?
It's a pity "comrade" sounds so USSR-ish and commie; on its own it has some nice implication, like "brother" but not so familial.
For my birthday my mom got me a DVD of the Discovery Channel show "Time Warp"... good call! Never heard of it, but it is awesome, cool things slowed WAY way down.
