A Map of the World.

I’ve been going through my email holding tank where I send interesting things for sending to my friends or writing a little bit about and posting here.
Typically I get a bit behind, so rather than having these gathering dust, I’m putting them on in one place for you, dear reader, to poke through.

I play bass, I cook, I look out the window. Sometimes I prefer wondering what's out there to going out and looking. But not all the time. I only recently learned that leaving two spaces after a full stop is obsolete.

  1. Hey Chris,<br/><br/>Took a gander at all of these, but the one that really stood out for me, which I found exceptionally interesting, was Death Star. <br/><br/>If you’ve followed the blog long enough, you’re familiar with my catching the Chikungunya virus a couple summers ago. That and the fact mosquitoes are just damn annoying…would be great if they started using those lasers to zap them. <br/><br/>Around here, so many people have those battery operated tennis rackets used to swat the things…I don’t have one, as they sort of pricey and I think the amusement dies out after a short period.<br/><br/>Jeeem

  2. Battery operated tennis rackets? That sounds like a wild lazy way to kill beasties! Maybe wearing a full burkha is the most sensible solution to the mosquito problem?!<br/><br/>I remember you being sick, I must go back and reread some evening now I’ve got proper internets at home.<br/><br/>That Death Star article put me in mind of the Jedi training drone in the original Star Wars movie. I wonder what kind of machine would be required to deal with the usual swarm of mosquitos, especially since it takes a second or two of contact with the beam to kill each bug.<br/>It’d be like setting up a circle of death around your house.
