GUEST,Joe_F BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life (116* d) RE: BS: Balancing Mudcat and real life 16 Jun 06

When I was little, I got tearful if I couldn't hear my usual daily radio programs. I will not claim to have grown up since then, but my attitude has changed somewhat.

I suppose I spend a couple of hours a day on the Net. In the morning, I look at Google News. Then & at various times during the day, I read my email, which includes subscriptions to half a dozen mailing lists. In the evening, I look at alt.politics.libertarian, alt.quotations,, alt.suicide.methods, alt.usage.english, comp.emacs, gnu.announce, gnu.emacs.announce, gnu.emacs.bug, gnu.emacs.gnus,, gnu.misc.discuss, ne.transportation,, sci.lang,, soc.motss, Dilbert, Doonesbury, For Better or for Worse, Danziger, Pluggers, the Mudcat, Tony Berno's blog, Martha Bridegam's blog, and Language Log. I skip almost all of that. As I have frequently remarked, here & elsewhere, the human visual system is a wonderful instrument for ignoring things.
