Having the day off, I had big, big plans for cleaning the house.

Unfortunately, with my efficiency I've been done with that for a half hour now.

Video games it is.

Mobility is important for maximum efficiency, I'm not surprised.


Man, I wish.

Kid left some of his papers in my classroom. This would not normally be cause for alarm, but...

They weren't there before my third hour.
This kid is not in my third hour.
No one in my third hour saw said kid come in with the papers.
The papers aren't even for a class I teach.

I'm not actually sure whether "how" or "why" should be my priority here.

Number of blocks Tiny T-Rex walks before inevitably weaponizing his scarf, two blocks.

Currently we're at four blocks and I'm pretty sure he's going all 300 on a legion of robots, or ninjas, or robot ninjas.

OK. Amazon is off the hook.

Turns out that California passed legislation to limit the amount of ozone air purifiers could produce. So, y'know, air purifiers aren't actually polluting the air.

And most household air purifiers fail that simple test.

GothBard did some digging, found that out, and found one on Amazon that actually can be shipped to California.

So it's the air purifier manufacturers' faults for making "purifiers" that pollute, rather than Amazon's fault for not shipping.

Some days, I like regulations.

Freehold should come to Pittsburgh, Today. We're going to have a Wintry mix of rain, freezing rain, and snow. As I left for work, the shrubbery in the driveway had ice on the branches.

Watchin' Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I gotta say, Season 1 really is kind of all OG Star Trek-kinds of goofy.

I mean, Episode 2 (if you count the Pilot as a single episode, which Netflix does) is all about how a space virus that gets people really "drunk" except, you know, it's more than that, given how hot everyone feels, how goofy they all act (and especially how aroused they're all being).

EDIT: And, you know, I have to ask - did Data and Tasha actually, you know, do anything, and, more to the point, does she remember it, later? E4: HAH! HAHAHAHAH~! IT DID AND SHE TOTALLY DID! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH~! "Fully functional" my eye, with that reaction...

Got back from lunch and the masks had arrived, so I put one on.

I have never been more comfortable with a mask on before; even when I was doing asbestos work.

The air around here is bad.

(Apparently the school was contacted by Stanford Medical Center and told their their air quality index was 235.

Not good.

Today, I read about someone being given POWER OF ETERNITY.

"Hey, that sounds cool", I thought. "It sounds like a special evil-thwacking ability that She-Ra, or maybe Bonnie Tyler, might manifest in moments of great peril"

Then reality reasserted itself and I had to conclude that whoever wrote it down actually meant 'Power of attorney' :(

I watched the next generation and voyager growing up. But not deep space 9, so we're catching up on that on netflix. In season 2 at the moment. I love Odo.

Um, can Gothbard point me in the direction of info on polluting air purifiers?

I asked her. It wasn't exactly rocket science:

(1) She started digging into why Amazon wouldn't deliver her preferred air purifier to California and learned about the state regulations
(2) She just set her address to California, added a bunch of air purifiers to the cart, and saw which ones wouldn't ship
(3) By process of elimination, she got it down to about half a dozen that WOULD ship here
(4) She looked at reviews of THOSE and picked one.

So for you it looks easier: Set your shipping address to California, add all of your purifiers to your cart, and see which ones'll ship here.

There's a saying "People who do not study history are doomed to repeat it." Id counter that people who study history still repeat it anyway. If wars were that bad(World War 1), why the heck do nations engage in more(World War 2)?

You're not telling me all those nations forgot to study history?

It's an old history bar classic.

Do we learn from history? if we do, what exactly do we learn?
it's the old tale of how one parse out what can be considered 'natural' behaviour in us humans? are the ever more complex imagined communities natural? What about various social constructs? power and hierarchy?
Not that I have any definitive answers. Just guesstimations, beliefs and ideas…but luckily those were often good enough to get drunk on while discussing these things at the bar ^^

Despise rats being 'kill on sight' in the stables, I could see myself getting to love one of the durned bastards. They can look and behave quite charming. Then again that personally for me goes for most non-insect/non-arachnid animals.

(1) For the first time in my life, the schools are closed due to a "smoke day". Yes. It's THAT bad here.

(2) I love the BBC and their reporting on the recent erection of an owl statue. The British have an unsurpassed sense of humor. Or is it humour? I guess it makes up for their lack of taste (buds).

Why NobodysHome Hates Steam:
(1) NobodysHome installs Steam so that it does NOT run at startup, only updates itself from 5:00 - 6:00 pm, has a 5 Mbps download limit, etc., etc.

(2) Shiro and GothBard convince NobodysHome to try Stardew Valley, so he runs Steam for a couple of evenings to play it.

(3) Steam updates itself, erases all his preferences, starts running on startup every time he boots, updates itself, downloads whatever whenever, and has no bandwidth limit.

And how did I find this out?

All the pop-up ads that showed all all over my computer the moment I booted, all labeled with the Steam logo.

Gods, I hate Steam...

And I've hit that time in life where you have to decide if a parent lives on for another 5d4 years or goes into hospice care, knowing that the random number of years left will be filled with anger, pain, resentment, and depression.

What is your parent's choice? (If they're capable of making it, that is?)

Hospice care has been elected. Dad likely won't make it through the day, much less the weekend.

I'll post something else later. Probably late tonight.

Any fans of hiking, outdoor trips, or travel here?

Advertisement. no really, that's an ad for a KS campaign for nice modular touristic gear:
Kickstarter for Strider Adventure Gear

It's an array composed of backpack, flight bag, belts, waits bags, various pouches, external pockets, and other accessories that can be mixed and matched, connecting to each other with MOLLE, so you combine to your needs...

It would be nice if it succeeded and not wasted the time I spent translating a lot of it.

If you know anyone who could be interested in such gear, share it with them, please.

Van, I am so daggum sorry. :/

I like hiking and all that, but not enough to spend a night sleeping on hard ground. I'll only cover distances that can be hiked in a single day, and so far in tropical conditions, a backpack + fanny pack is sufficient. Sorry Drejk.
