Welcome to Peanut Likes Sushi.
Construction on hiatus until Spring, when it's warm and I can go outside. It'll give my person something to do. It seems that humans just have no appreciation for the art of keyboard walking.
In the meantime, this may be of interest to you.
Can't quit credit cards, can't turn out a light. You servants are becoming quite feline.
[28 Mar 10]
I don't care. The Servant just can't retire, that's all.
[27 Mar 10]
Felines just do it. And then, there are some destructive perspectives on this subject. This bothers me and I don't care about anything but moi and my cheese.
[26 Mar 10]
Just like me, small and fluid. So, I'll never go dry no matter what the storm.
[25 Mar 10]
Every once in a while, I whap the Servant so it doesn't forget the proper perspective - me. Somtimes, perspective is the result of an action.
[24 Mar 10]
Planes. I hate airplanes. Gotta stay in a box under a seat and at the feet of the Servant, not a place from which to gain proper perspective on the world. But I could look out the window on the train from Beijing to London, when it comes around. No delays from fog or rain, either.
[22 Mar 10]
- It's all a matter of perpective. Being feline, I have no need to subscribe to happy endings and expectations of greater wisdom.
[21 Mar 10]
It's not a sign of the Apocalypse but it feels like it. One wonders about whether the Cubs considered the local rooftops when selecting the location and how.
[20 Mar 10]
Yes, all politics are local
[19 Mar 10]
Just think, we're the first generation that can experience death by science fiction. No, you can't just kill your species, you have to take everyone with you.
[18 Mar 10]
Just think, humans believe that democracy is a rational enterprise. Are any of these logical?
[17 Mar 10]
So, is Defense rather than State going to be responsible for peace in our time? It's not as screwy as it sounds.
[16 Mar 10]
As we dwell on the basketball Earth, we need to remember that humans tend grow just what we need or, rather, you expand to what you can grow. (Of course, bad trade policy does its part) But nature doesn't care if humans suffer. It's only your opinion that you have priority; if you want it, you must work for it. Together. As long as I get my Salmon Dinner, I won't hurt you.
[15 Mar 10]
And you won't even have the old way to insulate youself from the cold. Me, I'll go under the covers of the Servant.
[13 Mar 10]
So, you spent our money already. Your young aren't stupid; after all, why should they bust'em when it won't be there?
[12 Mar 10]
Everybody says that one should diversify one's portfolio. Problem is, what can you do if you're stuck in the rapids? Me, I just make sure that the Servant fetches more than just Sea Captain's Choice.
[11 Mar 10]
Of course, when forted up, it's sensible to make sure all the doors are locked.
[10 Mar 10]
So, you're the fastet gun in the West. Do you really expect the bad guys to face you on the street at high noon? Or will it be an ambush? Hey, I pounce from hiding, like any proper feline does.
[9 Mar 10]
Oh, good, the Emperor does indeed have clothes. Of course, it takes imagination to lead, yes?
[8 Mar 10]
Which means you can let it mean whatever is convenient.
[7 Mar 10]
Does it matter, since it's all a figment of your collective imagination, anyway.
[21 Feb 10]
It seems that owing a lot of money can cramp your style. Whoda thunk?
[20 Feb 10]
This is a decent report on the current status of the online, omnibus cache of world-wide knowledge (or ignorance - your choice). Let us remember that evil occurs mostly from sins of ommission, not commission.
[19 Feb 10]
Here's a concrete way to bring perspective to corporate society. Good luck with that; if done, then it isn't needed.
[18 Feb 10]
The fog of trade has lifted. Now, where's that margarita? My Servant is dry.
[17 Feb 10]
Can a society get PTSD? We'll know within ten years or so; from experience, the signs are not reassuring.
[16 Feb 10]
So, Google Buzz ripped off everyone's clothes. What a suprise, that a media company which pulls its revenue by selling you Servants to advertisers would strip mine more information.
[15 Feb 10]
Given the current discussion about bonuses, this remains true today as well as a year ago.
[14 Feb 10]
Space tech is becoming like computer tech. Everyone wants to play and the current leader better get its act together.
[27 Nov 09]
Bubble, bubble, who's got got the bubble? They both start with "b".
[28 Oct 09]
Are your children ready for the Apocalypse? A debate rages over whether the current tools are good enough. My take is that no training substitutes for the real thing.
[03 March 09]
You know, the tech is already here. Out of the box, the Geo Metro acheived 51 mpg. Now, you should go for 70 gpm on less than $7K.
[21 February 09]
- The mortgage is affordable (my territory wasn't bought assuming a "greater fool"), no credit cards, no car payment. You oughta hear the Servant rant. But, Rick Santelli does it better.
[20 February 09]
- The Sunday afternoon story telling is a true art.
[01 February 09]
- For once, tax incremental financing can help the little guy. See here and here, too.
[28 January 09]
- Fishing as a metaphor for 21st century capitalism. I like fish.
[27 January 09]
- If the Servant hands you the keys when you are intoxicated, to what extent am I culpable for ensuing accident? Now, let's take it to the next level.
[26 January 09]
- Back, again, to keeping one's perspective. There will be life after recession and how you deal with it now will live with you for the next century.
[19 January 09]
- Coal is changing from cheap to expensive. Solar is becoming a a glut on the market.
[18 January 09]
- Meetings proliferate and consume our time. Here's one theory of why.
[16 January 09]
- Yes, our problems were created with creative financing and borrowing money
from our children. But, hey, staying the course is the way out. For some reason, this not the consensus of those who responded.
[12 January 09]
- Yes, you all can get rich with this stupid ebook.
[9 December 2008]
- How about a little more consideration of perspective. Let's assume that the Earth is the size of a basketball. Then, comparatively speaking, the atmosphere is the thickness of cling wrap. Yes, the bumps stick into space.
[24 November 2008]
- Industial solar is here; inexpensive, high efficiency solutions are beginning to appear. Too ugly for my house, though.
[23 November 2008]
- Will the open/crowdsource model of getting rich
survive the downturn? Maybe shrink but not disappear. After all, this writing certainly is not remunerative!
[23 October 2008]
- It's amazing how an industry
can do what was said couldn't be done, when threatened with bankruptcy.
[11 September 2008]
- Well, it used to be privatize the profit and socialize the risk but now the capitalists are taken out of the process and
the profit goes to the authoritarians. As if there's a choice; the aftermath of a banking crash is unpleasant.
[8 September 2008]
- Please, remember
to consider the source.
[6 September 2008]
- We all need
a sense of perspective.
[5 September 2008]
- Just me and my (data) shadow.
[4 September 2008]
- Solar power - many routes, same destination. Concentrator technology is one solution.
[3 September 2008]
- Silicon Valley is not unique. See some real technological history.
