Holy overkill, Batman!

I just realized that was WAY too much ancient Chinese wisdom for a single blog post, so if you haven't already been overwhelmed by it and skipped to the end ("Man and wife"), go ahead and try again: I edited out a bunch, to make it a little more manageable.

Also:

Ever notice how twenty years ago was the best time to buy real-estate, but six months from now (when the next model comes out, twice as fast for the same size and price!) is the best time to buy technology?

Also:

This picture made me snicker with its unabashed brazen-ness. I guess when it comes to beer advertisements, subtlety is overrated. (Hite is a local beer brand. Lots of t'n'a in their advertisements. Maybe if I look at the poster while I drink, I won't notice that the beer's not actually very good.)




After the Tao Te Ching, I suppose I also needed to post something asinine, just to balance out the blog content.

If you don't actually know English, but you think English letters look cool, you can just mash a keyboard for a while and hope patrons of your bar don't know any English, either.

Maybe it's a different language: anybody recognize any words?

I recognized some words! I'm sure my kids have typed those words before too!

through exhaustive research, I have discovered the exact shape a balled fist must make, left handed or right handed, to create some of these configurations.

I anticipate this being a new way deaf people, if they don't know how to type, can communicate -- by forming signs for words or letters and the banging keys, which might be easier than just learning how to type, or hunting for keys.

I'm waiting to hear a response to my grant application from UBC.
