I wondered why I got an email response so fast (on July 27):
"I am out of the office on Wednesday, June 24th"  

The irony is that my email was relative to someone I called whose voicemail had a similar "vacation" message with the date given being several weeks old.   Technology that hasn't improved since 1999?

How many countries can you name on the African continent? In junior high we had to memorize the countries of Central America. We never had to learn Canada, Europe, Asia or Africa. I can't remember actually being required to know the 50 states of the US, but there were always puzzles and my family visited much of the US east of the Mississippi River.

My reaction wasn't about the stillness of the water, but how starkly white the reflections were. Also, if you look at the reflection of the left end of the fence, you can see how blurry it should be, due to ripples. But the figures aren't as blurry as the fence.

Use of nonrenewable resources? I knew this about Alaska, but had forgotten. I didn't know about Texas.
 
Republicans: you already embrace socialism. Can you please stop using it as a put-down for anything you don't like?

I truly don't get what's different about this socialism -- government or cooperative ownership of the means of the production, used to help pay for infrastructure -- from the socialism we "lefties" advocate. Is it that this is more kind of piecemeal, where what we want is more of a guarantee?

One thing about San Francisco I don't miss:

http://www.missionmission.org/2015/07/14/madness/#comments
I'm sitting on the hill in the park just now when a guy comes barreling down the walkway behind me yelling about how mad he is and how nobody better turn around and look at him or else he'll get violent. A couple of high schoolers get in his face and call his bluff and they both end up socking ...

Executioner's song for bug zappers.   (I'd like to credit the person who gave me this link, but thanked them in a comment and don't want to give them two alerts??)

GAINESVILLE—If mosquitoes and other insects are taking a bite out of your summer fun, don't bother with one of those electric bug zappers, says a University of Florida pest control expert. “They are a total waste of money. Bug zappers will not control mosquitoes or other biting insects such as ...

I'd count near-death experiences as evidence of a life of adventure, but some of those near-death experiences were mundane stupidity.
