I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things . . . — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

< Amy Johnson

The most popular aviatrix at the time (and would-be ATA girl) was Amy Johnson. She was the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia and broke several flying records during the 1930s, including the fastest flight from Britain to Moscow and Britain to Japan.

She was the poster girl of female aviation in interwar Britain (she tragically died in service of the ATA in 1941).>

New (to me) Expression of the Day:

"That's all I was saying. Apparently powers that be found differently. I am surprised to say the least but not the hill I want to die on."

-- ink-syringe on FPN

This will now be appearing at inopportune moments sprinkled throughout my daily conversations.

Because you have a sudden, inexplicable craving for an egg worm

<This week’s gadget describes itself as “a new way to prepare eggs”, which is accurate in the way that chopping off your legs could be described as a new way to lose weight. >

+Cara Evangelista owns one, so should you.
I can’t look at the hot sweating mess that emerges from the Egg Master’s opening, let alone eat it

The Dude Abides

<You might remember Misty, but what about Surfer Dude? “Misty was probably the most famous pony of all,” says Chincoteague Island firefighter Denise Bowden of the mare who was immortalized in Marguerite Henry’s 1947 classic children’s novel and 1961 film. “But Surfer Dude comes in a real close second. He was that iconic stallion. He was a handsome thing.”>

The AI apocalypse will be delayed ...

Today I received an email whose title began with these words, "@khloekardashian tweeted:"

It was listed as coming from "Popular in your network".

Clearly I have successfully disguised myself as one of them. A detailed report will follow. Hail Hydra!

This explains many suspicious coincidences

"At the heart of his theories lies the idea that a secret group of reptilian humanoids called the Babylonian Brotherhood (including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson and Boxcar Willie) controls humanity, and that many prominent figures are reptilian."

Yuma

<That kind of fun can't be had in the 21st century, where there are no normal middle-class values, all the Clark Griswolds are alienated, sarcastic and cynical, and every suburban schlub is a font of nihilism's dark, ironic genius.>

See this one-day old amoeba really school Donald Trump!

1) Using school this way (as a transitive verb) is wrong

2) If you click on headlines like this you are wasting your life in teensy little increments

If you want a way to fill up small spaces in your life then here are some suggestions:

Zen koans

Ogden Nash poetry

Rolling a quarter across your knuckles

Learn to play a musical instrument

Write a Country/Western song about your office job

Ask anyone a question about anything and listen intently to the answer

Take a deep breath

Go digital

<In the picture up top, I am working on a complex surface for a hiking stick handle. This surface provides a good example of how a complex, ergonomically driven form can be refined quickly using hands-on techniques. We experienced and corrected the design on the fly, fitting it to a variety of hands. The immediate tactile feedback of clay allowed us to resolve complex ergonomic issues while incorporating our intended aesthetics. Good luck doing that with 3-D printed parts.>
Four reasons why you should skip the pricey 3-D printer and stick to the foam core.

If you've lived up to this point never having consumed chicken fried steak, well, that's just not living.
Chicken fried steak tells the story of Texas. The dish shows us how a particular global diaspora changed Texas foodways for good, and it brings us back to a time when so-called "country cooking" was just ... cooking.

James Garner, who might know something about CFS, was partial to the Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place in Indianapolis.
