I cringe when someone uses a knife to open packages - kills the blade...

I put this on my keychain for that:

I really enjoy #gadgetporn and my favorite subset of that perversion is #EDC. People post and videoblog the things that they carry on their person.

It reveals much. So here is a draft:

clockwise from upper left -
1) various access cards to office/ subway/ datacenter on a lanyard
2) keychain:
   led light; key; bit driver; seatbelt knife (box opener); peanut lighter; usb drive; little memento of my family; (missing a little titanium prybar)
3) knife - Kershaw 1760 - like it but wouldn't be too heartbroken if TSA/ police snag it
4) fitbit
5) leather bracelet (has a function of keeping my watch winder from irritating my wrist)
6) watch - luminox 3150 - I lost the bezel and replaed it with sugru
7) Samsung Note2 (multitool ;)  )
8) pacsafe RFID blocking wallet includes a FSF dongle and a wallet spanner (which doubles as a window scraper). Also some basic first aid in the zipper compartment

I have other stuff on and in my backpack - but that is my on-person EDC.

+Wendy McCulloch - huge thanks for coming to our apartment and treating our dog. Wonderful manner with dogs and kids. Explained everything to voraciously questioning 9 and 7 yr olds.

Treated our dog, Gogma so gently that he didn't even complain. Going to the vet is always a bit traumatic for many dogs... Gogma basically slept through the whole thing.

Thank you Dr McCulloch!

Hey Grammar fascists out there - can you grammasplain this for me?

I was reading this article:

http://news.discovery.com/animals/pets/feral-cats-attack-130727.htm

and thought of the following phrase:

'kitten murderers'

and meaning it in this sense:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/kitten-thinks-of-nothing-but-murder-all-day,9783/

But if one used this in day to day conversation it would open one up to be the recipient of toxoplasmo-rage from some cat lover...

So the distinction between 

"Kitten murderer" to mean a kitten who is a murderer

and 

"Kitten murderer" to mean a human sociopath on their way to graduating to full blown psychopathology

is the nominative case in the first instance and the accusative in the 2nd?

In English we don't have explicit cases much of the time - I am pretty sure a language like German or Sanskrit would differentiate its 'kitten murderers' better...

I do not agree with him all the time - but really glad to have +Ta-Nehisi Coates  to read this morning. 

Much of the discussion in the aftermath of the verdict is disturbingly bad. I tend to gravitate towards the financial press (Bloomberg/ FT/ Economist) to try and minimize the signal to noise ratio. But you need analysis at times... and space for discussion.

I like your philosophy of not using pesticides. I am not a hunter nor am I very knowledgable about guns, but the air rifle seems to be the perfect tool for this. Anyone who has seen an animal in the throes of organic phosphate poisoning would agree that these animals are getting the better way out...
 
I've watched a few of your videos and find them to be interesting. You go about pest control with a professional, responsible and economical way of doing things. I do not see how people think what you are doing is gratuitous or particularly mean.

Looks like you enjoy your work.

Kudos.

30 years out from high school. My only photo in the yearbook of an unremarkable and unremembered stint at #delbarton.

Eyes shut by accident. No quote but i remember what i wanted to put: chapter 20 of the Tao Te Ching.

Wrong, simply wrong. In a week of disheartening news about our gov't and civil liberties, this is bad:

Hours late getting the car to us (and the office is 4km from Keflavik). At the end of the rental when we submitted the car the attendee went over the car and noted that there was no damage. Next day I got an email saying there were scratches on the car and was charged 500k ISK. There are other options - avoid this company.

I had an initial checkup with Dr. Damle and found him to be very informative and caring. He got back to me with blood test results the next day. The equipment in office is not very modern but what I look for in a doctor for is intelligence, depth of experience and a willingness to take time to explain - very much the experience I had at Dr Damle's office.
