Reality used to be a friend of mine
And while you are reading the article make sure you got your P. M. Dawn bopping in the background (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30RX1yi2V9c)

"So while neuroscientists struggle to understand how there can be such a thing as a first-person reality, quantum physicists have to grapple with the mystery of how there can be anything but a first-person reality. In short, all roads lead back to the observer. And that’s where you can find Hoffman — straddling the boundaries, attempting a mathematical model of the observer, trying to get at the reality behind the illusion."

Well so did Prince D...and I can dance to his musing - so there's that...

Reality and life are not the same
as to her equivalent to what is real
She doesn't appeal to how I feel
(PM Dawn - Reality Used To Be A Friend Of Mine Lyrics)

Dangity dang of these are not just stunning! I need to explore more this idea of "allegorical realism" 'cause I like what I see here.
He calls it “allegorical realism” – a type of storytelling that does not convey its message literally yet avoids slipping into the fantastic or the cartoonish. In the work of Kevi…

Science!
Good to see that some real research is being done out there!

+Adam Campbell and +Ralph Uy. I +Nicola Smith might not be against reviewing this work for publication either...
Students at the University of Leicester have been using simple calculations to explain the feasibility of the powers behind of some of the most prominent comic book superheroes known around the world.

Moral courage
Really interesting work done here. It tells the "stories of people who are standing up when others want them to sit down. Whether they are confronting a bully, challenging their culture, or simply seeking truth, the agents of moral courage refuse to fail."

These are my heroes, for sure.

Digging through old emails
Find this gem I sent to the wife. It was from 2010 and the child in question was 5:

Never told you this. Last night the little bedbug would not stay in bed. He got up and came to me with a serious face and said, “I can’t sleep. I have a question. Were there people around when there were dinosaurs?”

Patiently I said “No. Now go to bed.” He was nonplussed, “Oh. Were the people dead then? Did the dinosaurs eat them?” he asked with a tinge of excitement.

I stop what I was doing (paying bills) and turn to him, “No, the dinosaurs were around before there were any people.”

He makes a frowny face of deep thought and then asks “Well if there were no people around, how do we know there were dinosaurs?”

---------------------
And that is perhaps the best snapshot I can give anyone of what my youngest is like...

50s movies
You know maybe the stuff Hollywood was putting out in the 50s has some truth to it...File under: interesting nightmare scenarios # 34.
Scientists describe workers trapped for years in "a hostile environment in total darkness."

A problem, not "the" - but yeah...to be fair, almost all politicians are the same though.

Logos
I had forgotten some of these - so that says something, I think. But looking at recent history the logos go together with the opening ceremonies, and are only part of the story. Also, I agree with one of the commenters on the article that says that the Beijing logo is underrated - it mixed ancient calligraphy with modern trends and was quite well done and creative.
AIGA just published a fantastic rundown of all Olympic logos, as graded by Milton Glaser. Glaser is a legend, having created some of the…

I just love Deadpool...that's it...
Perhaps this could be considered a victory lap for Deadpool outgrossing Batman V Superman in the domestic box office despite having one-fourth of the production budget. Marvel is currently putting out a Spider-Man and Deadpool team-up series, and the issue on stands now — Spider-Man/Deadpool #6 — pokes

Colors
It is a truism and a  that as a guy I am not that attuned to color - "Looks like to blue to me" when my wife is trying to decide between shades or, well, blue. To her there is a world of difference between shades of aqua. I am more concerned if this is blue or green...it kinda looks blue to me.

You know how some people are cursed with perfect pitch? Others are supertasters. Me? When it comes to food if it doesn't run faster than me it is fuel for the body. This morning I was actually toying with the idea of putting coffee in my cereal, instead of milk - I did enjoy the imagined screams of disgust from wife and kids - but I figured it might be more efficient?

Having said all this I do like the names of the pantone colors - they are evocative, even if for the life of me I cannot (without cheating and looking at the chart) figure out what color "fallen rock" should be other than, well, brown?

+Ralph Uy and +Adam Campbell - who can probably translate pantone to hex...

Leo has the heart of a troll....in his hand....with a fork in it to test if its done yet.
Introduction
“There is no one today who does not see the uselessness and injustice of collecting taxes from the toiling masses to enrich idle officials; or the senselessness of inflicting punishments on weak or depraved persons in the shape of transportation from one place to another, or of imprisonment in a fortress where, living in security and indolence, they only become weaker and more depraved; or the worse than useless and injustice, the positive insanity and barbarity of preparations for war and of wars, causing devastation and ruin, and having no kind of justification.” (Leo Tolstoy)

I am a compulsive Epicurean (not a hedonist). I have not felt, loved, and played enough, nor experienced enough saudades. I have not answered all my emails from friends and family, and might not be able to. I am looking forward to telling my grandchildren all the stories my grandparents told me about their grandparents.
