#flurry  I think that will do.

Mostly landscapes this time. I think the next one, probably in a couple of weeks, shall be minerals + astronomical. But who knows for sure. That's two weeks away. I can barely remember what I did yesterday...

Thanks to all the people on G+ who collect and share these pictures. Quadruple thanks to those who make pictures rather than just resharing.

Story
Tagline
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness. It preserves the soul from desiccation. - Humphrey Lyttelton
Introduction
I may not be as colorful as my avatar, but I do have better posture.

What to expect in my stream
I like to keep my feed as eclectic as I can, but certain posting trends are emerging. If Google+ ever gives us effective filtering tools, I'll try to be conscientious about tagging things into categories so that you can filter out the stuff you're not interested in. I don't categorically guarantee to keep what I post safe for work, but so far it mostly has been.

Sciency and computery stuff
I'm a sucker for sciency things, especially in areas I don't know much about. Maths, physics, astronomy, cryptography, computer programming, chemistry, geology, and anything else that comes my way. I'm interested in raytracing and CGI in general, computer art, fractals and cellular automata.

Pictures
This includes sci-fi and astronomy, cyberpunk, steampunk, fantasy, fine art, CGI, sculpture, and scenes of natural earthly beauty. Beautiful animals, plants, fungi, minerals, machines. Especially if they're _strange_ and beautiful. Beautiful women - or men, if I happen to chance across them. This seems only fair to me. :-) Silly pictures and memes too, sometimes.

Musical stuff
I love posting examples of high talent, and I also love especially unusual or entertaining pieces. It'll be a science-themed version of Bohemian Rhapsody one day, the Muppets the next, and then Mongolian throat-singing the day after, if that's what I find. Familiar pieces on unfamiliar instruments; unfamiliar works by familiar artists. One Song to the Tune of Another.

Silliness and satire
Silly images; daft cartoons; serious articles on improbable subjects. Improbable articles on serious subjects, especially if the silliness hides a worthwhile serious point. I have many comedy heroes, from Monty Python and Spike Milligan to Bill Bailey and Tom Lehrer. Expect some overlap with the other categories.

Worthy stuff like women's rights and LGBT issues
This is rarer, but if I come across something that deserves resharing I will reshare it. I'm privileged in all sorts of ways, so if I can help by spreading the word about some abuse suffered by a minority I may pass it on.

Politics and philosophy
Not so much of this, but not necessarily none at all. Just because I post something, especially something objectionable, doesn't necessarily mean I agree with it. But remember: objectionable speech is the only kind of speech that needs protecting. If we overlook that, we cede victory to the tyrants before any 'debate' has even started.

Post frequency
Not quite one post per day, on average. Sometimes little flurries of a few posts on a single day. Image flurries usually have 50-60 posts, and happen every several weeks. 

Hangouts
No, sorry, I don't do hangouts with anyone. Just don't like 'em. Text communication is by far my most preferred channel.

Blocking policy
I cheerfully block and flag people who appear to be spammers. I block racists, bigots and the barely-literate, and if your posts lead me back to your website, and your website fires popups at me, I'll block you and your entire domain. I also block the perpetrators of clickbait. Web site writers take note: web sites are ten thousand a penny. I don't have to visit the same site twice in my lifetime if I don't want to, so I have a merciless one-strike policy. One popup, one auto-playing video, one sliding pane, or any other piece of modern HTML gimmickry and you're banned forever more, and good riddance.
Bragging rights
I am pledged to use my evil mostly for good!
