This would be fun to do. Except I'm pretty sure some of you would murder me.

Pakistan, Africa, France ... not happening!
The thing I like best about inet convos is the fact that you have interactions with people that you'd never speak to, for a myriad of reasons, otherwise.
For instance; recently on my Twitter, Thomas Woods and I traded observations on Buehler's recent attitude toward Libertarianism.
I don't want to be limited to the quilting circle because of my age/race/gender ... but I can't do the coffee date thing either.

I am reminded of this quote from Plato: "A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men." 

This man is one in 100,000.

I don't have much to say about Robin Williams. He was a funny man but he also battled addiction for a very long time. I liked his acting most when he was challenging himself, like in Good Will Hunting or doing offbeat comedies like Bobcat Goldthwait's World's Greatest Dad. For some reason the news of his suspected suicide reminded of this quote from the latter, spoken by Williams' character Lance Clayton:

"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone."

I hope neither was the case in his final days.

He was a funny man and, although he had politics I usually disagreed with,  had a great heart. Many times he would volunteer his time for +St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as seen here.

Now it could be he just wanted a tax write-off or money before proceeds...at this point I could care less. He will be missed by many, including myself...it's best for us to have a laugh. Williams would want us to anyhow.

The Batman v. Superman trailer that premiered at Comic Con has leaked online. Cell phone camera quality and some annoying background noise. But it’s something.

Considering they have been buying craft breweries left and right, was it hypocritical for AB-Inbev to air this anti-craft beer #Budweiser  ad during the Super Bowl? Or was it just stupid? #CraftBeer

Just put in for an invite ... we'll see how that goes. I like the way their  looks, too many bells/whistles aggravate my astigmatism, which aggravates me. )

+Queens Nicky You're missing the point. Android fanboys (probably not you, but there are a lot of people like this out there) immediately attack the iPhone on the day it's announced. It's petty and ridiculous. Apple fans don't do that on Samsung release days. You know why? Because we just enjoy the product we are using. We don't care that you like Android. Everyone has their own preferences. Grow up, people.

Autocorrect, I understand you think you know me, but I did, in fact, mean to type "wicket" not "whiskey." Thanks for the suggestion, though.

To have seen much and to have nothing, is to have rich eyes and poor hands.

I pretty much ... do. The "poor hands" more or less is highly subjective, tho. I've "seen" many with lots of "stuff" I wouldn't trade places with.
