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 I only recently learned that leaving two spaces after a full stop is obsolete.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,

    Took a gander at all of these, but the one that really stood out for me, which I found exceptionally interesting, was Death Star.

    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.

    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.


  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?!

    I remember you being sick, I must go back and reread some evening now I've got proper internets at home.

    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.
    It'd be like setting up a circle of death around your house.
