Ooh, pinch me! I think I'm in heaven!
Imagine waking up to find your garden, car and home are now all covered in a dense layer of cobwebs, teeming with millions of baby spiders. It’s the stuff of nightmares for those with arachnophobia. It's also a distressing reality for those living in the town of Goulburn in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “millions of baby spiders” have been spotted “raining from the sky.”

+Dan Weese The most eye-opening event for me was when I realized that, in Russian, one can only be "not guilty" - невинный - but one cannot be "innocent".

...that's 'new to me,' not a "new book/tome"

And aren't these just recycled moves from that abhorrent 'dancing baby' meme thing from about two centuries ago?

Numbnut with a grinder, working on the tracks, set fire to a bird's nest, as a result, the control linkage for the entire line had a big hole burned through it, resulting in a complete shutdown of the line (which runs from Vancouver's downtown to Surrey) for thirteen-hours. Daily ridership on this line is around 300,000 people. We live near the track, and the repairs were still going at 3 a.m.

SkyTrain passengers took longer than expected getting home on Thursday night, in Metro Vancouver. Trains weren't running between the Edmonds station and the Waterfront Station.

Introduction
“Then God sent the Greyhound to live among man and remember. And when the Day comes, God will call the Greyhound to give testament, and God will pass judgment on man.”
Persian Proverb

We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
-- Werner Heisenberg

Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. 
-- H.L. Mencken

Muzzle a dog and he will bark out of the other end.
-- Malcolm Lowry

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones. 
-- John Cage

"When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail." 
-- Abraham Maslow (subtly paraphrased)

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' 
-- Isaac Asimov

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
-- John Steinbeck

History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again.
-- Kurt Vonnegut

Wanting to meet a writer because you loved his book is like enjoying some pâté and wanting to meet the duck.
-- Margaret Atwood

A biologist, a physicist, and a mathematician are sitting in an outdoor cafe. They watch two people go into a building across the street. Shortly thereafter, three people come out.
"Hmm," says the biologist. "It looks like they reproduced."
"Nah," says the physicist. "There was obviously error in our initial measurement." The mathematician looks up from his coffee. "Who cares? If another person goes in, it'll be empty."

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.
-- Catherine Aird  

"Faith and knowledge are related as the two scales of balance; when the one goes up, the other goes down… The power of religious dogma, when inculcated early, is such as to stifle conscience, compassion, and finally every feeling of humanity… For, as you know, religions are like glow worms; they shine only when it’s dark. A certain amount of ignorance is the condition of all religions, the element in which alone they can exist."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena (1851), cited in Who’s Who in Hell compiled by Warren Allen Smith

I collect signed first editions of Orwell's '1984', most of which are carefully stored in my basement suite in Venice. I also have a timeshare on the shores of beautiful Lake Vostok.

Not a bad used bookstore, but I'd warn anyone sensitive to cigarette smoke that the proprietor smokes in the shop and the air circulation seems to be bi-annual.
