  1. @ghostdancer It's a fine line. Evil villains have excellent social skills, in my experience.

  2. Brushing up on my social skills. Practicing insincere laughter. Ah he-he-he ha-ha-a.

  3. Rainy day. Frogs are very good at working with the acoustic properties of their environment. With all the sheet metal here in the pre-fab sprawl it's like amphibian Glastonbury this evening.

  4. Day off. Caught up on docos. The Killing$ of Tony Blair is very good. No new revelations, but the condensed account of #'s shameless crimes is overwhelming. Galloway manages to keep his pompous gittishness reined in. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Killing$_of_Tony_Blair

  5. I can't really afford beer. Thankfully # is an impulse shopper. Nail polish remover, a dash of essential oil (patchouli & lemongrass this evening), & soda is quite palatable. Ensuing burps have been found to have a calming effect & help focus the minds of those around you.

  6. Which # saint is responsible for allocating souls to fetuses (fetii?)? There's been a mix-up. I was expecting a crackling fire and a pint with the nutritional value of a small forest. I got a ceiling fan and anaemic lager to replace the liquid wrung out of my shirt.

  7. So humid that if you take a glass of chilled water from the fridge, within 5 minutes enough condensation has run off it to fill another glass.

  10. @tregeagle An elegant, flexible, and fun programming language means incomprehensible, unmaintainable code, as the poor sod who inherited my late '90s # CGI scripts will testify.

  11. @tregeagle Certainly. # can get along without me for a little while. And I need an excuse to put my pants on before noon.

  13. I can't bring myself to go to the dentist after sleeping through my last appointment. Plus I forget what I'm doing at least a dozen times a day, and where and who I am once or twice. Win-win: http://boingboing.net/2017/01/10/researchers-discover-that-expe.html

  14. It took decades of life in politics to push # into full-on enemies-list-crazy. Wuss. # comes to public office prepared on day one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HZHlygbd4I

  15. Apparently it was Harold Wilson who devalued the billion from a million million to a thousand million. That's just the sort of socialist profligacy we'll see if # gains power over our exponents, mark my words! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billion

  17. @rodus I get the impression that, as with the #, it was the boom that was the problem. Since then # has been doing okay, despite 25 years of mainstream economists declaring imminent catastrophe.

  18. Have an economics essay where I thought the story would be that # was a cautionary tale for the rest of the # Is it just me, or is it that Japan is actually a very nice place to live, and that it's terrible stagnation is just congenial sustainability? @rodus would know.

  19. Tried using some video editing software. Gave up before I lost the will to live. Recently noticed how word processor UIs assume prior experience with typewriters. This is far worse: "You have a razor blade. That is all. Oh, and some cool transitions."
