Dave Asprey: "I want to live to 180, but not if it means I have to eat kale." 1) Dude, how bad do you want it? 2) You're missing out. More for me I guess.

@hackerfriendly Oh, I was catching up and now I see that there was a grounding problem that you fixed.

@hackerfriendly Since I saw you took a picture of just the artifacts, could some image processing be done to subtract the pattern as a post-processing step?

"I know by now that no position is more comfortable than another. Even the most comfortable position after a period of time would become intolerable." --Marina Abramović, 1981 journal entry.

The great promise of the Internet was that more information would automatically yield better decisions. The great disappointment was that more information actually yields more possibilities to confirm what you already believed anyway. - Brian Eno

I love how the word 'wonky' can mean both

'highly complex technical argument able to be grasped only by an ultra-sophisticated intellectual elite'


'a tottering structure built on a shaky foundation that one accidental brush with reality will bring crashing down'

On the subject of trees, apparently they can feed each other and maybe even communicate through their root structures. Or are they individuals at all? (warning: puns like "wood-wide web") smithsonianmag.com/science-nat

@astrid Sounds like something to see in person one day.

There's a painstaking effort to breed a blight resistance gene into the once-mighty American chestnut tree. Old school genetic engineering.

The Las Vegas strip fascinates me because of the massive scale of beautiful infrastructure created for the sake of hedonism and consumption. Can't help thinking it's what Burning Man would become if freed of artificial constraints.

Just finished "Old Path White Clouds" by Thich Nhat Hanh. It's a story of the Buddha's life. For much of the book, the Buddha wanders about meeting new people, and no matter how skeptical or resistant they start out, as soon as he's finished talking to them they beg to be ordained as monks or lay disciples in his new religion. It's like a zombie apocalypse where the zombies are the good guys.

Yep, terrible idea.

I'll hang on to it and make some actual pancakes when my niblings visit this summer.

Lowlights of bicycle commuting: When you get into a leap-frog game with a bus. You have about the same average speed, factoring in the bus stops. Frequently, the result is breathing lots of exhaust, unless you just want to stop off and get a beverage while you let it pull far ahead.

This is probably a terrible idea, but I ordered a Pancake Bot to try using with paint.

@mark app.dlvrit.com/ seems like a pretty good tool. The free version limits to 3 posts/day/"social". I may need to tweak my lambda transform or the cross post settings, but basically happy with it. (If I hadn't already built the transform, the tool seems flexible enough that I might not have needed it.) In good time I will post on FB and ask people to migrate to my page.

Tried setting up dlvr.it to syndicate Mastodon to a Facebook page and to Twitter. This is a post to test.
