That's brilliant knowing wonk backwards is know. A wonk knows a lot about a narrow field and knows little in general. Its like a dog that knows a lot compared to god.

There are people in the world who can take old usable tech stuff from computers and use them now. eBay is where they shop. Today I'm listing old funky stuff that I used years ago, that still works, but that I can't be bothered to figure out how to put it to good use now. That's why I list on eBay.

If I was from the UK I think I'd be saying "I can't be arsed" to figure out how to use this stuff. The Mudcat influence.

Hi, Mom!

Dictionary.com says the word "wonk" is of unknown origin. But have you ever noticed that "wonk" is "know" spelled backwards? And that wonks are people who know a lot? This simply cannot be a coincidence! I seem to have either solved a perplexing mystery or indulged in a meaningless exercise in folk etymology. Choose one.

By the way, the most often cited example of folk etymology is "strawberry". Most people assume the word has something to do with straw. Wrong! "Straw" is an archaic form of "strewn". They're called strawberries because they grow on vines that are strewn along the ground instead of being supported by an arbor like grapes.

And if you have difficulties traveling between those places, you're SOL. Had that happen a few times myself. (O being "outof" or "outta" - a single word in this particular usage.)

Don't spill her rum and she'll be just fine.

Off to SLC tomorrow and then to BWI and then to IAD to KEF. Then next week KEF to IAD and then BWI to SLC and thence to PIH by land.

There are enough chores needing doing that I'm taking tomorrow off to get started. If MOM will get up early she can ride with the dogs and me over to the local Chevy dealer where I bought my used Nissan - I'm due my free oil change. I'll walk back to the house with the dogs, and if MOM doesn't want to walk I'll load the Radio Flyer in the back of the SUV and pull her home in that. It's pretty level between the dealership and the house.

Are you a Trumpist tonight,
Do you miss a good fight?
Are you sorry you joined KKK?
Does your memory stray to that bright sunny day
When you lynched raped and killed, those unlike you?
Does the media lie, and tell only fake news?
Is the world made of shit, and you are the glue?
Is your heart filled with hate, is pain and death your true fate?
Tell me Adolf, are you lonesome tonight?
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight

sniff...white supremacists have feelings too.

Blame Both Sides Now

Blow dried wisps of Donald's hair
And tall Trump castles in the air
Fair weather friends are everywhere
I've looked at clods that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and blow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clods got in my way
I've looked at clods from both sides now
From KKK to the Nazi race
It's clods illusions I recall
I really don't know clods at all
Well groomed goons and tribe appeal
The neo Nazis know how you feel
As every hairy tale comes real
I've looked at hate that way
But now it's just a TV show
They'll all laugh at you when you go
And if you care, don't let it show
Don't give yourself away
I've looked at hate from both sides now
From give and take and still somehow
It's wars illusions I recall
I really don't know hate at all
Tears and fears and feeling proud,
They say "We are white" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and deadly crowds
I've looked at strife that way
Now some old friends are all deranged
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day.
I've looked at strife from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's war's illusions I recall
I really don't know strife at all
I've looked at strife from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's war's illusions I recall
I really don't know strife at all

Warming up again. Darn. I grew up with fall weather starting in September; last week was spectacular temperature-wise. MOM had a sweater on the chair next to the kitchen door for when she went out in the pre-dawn morning to run the sprinklers before the code enforcement guys were out to notice that it isn't her day for watering.

keberoxu, I notice some name-dropping about MOAB in other threads. We tend to not brag about MOM on other threads, people get jealous about how long it is (or complain if pages are slow to load, suggesting that MOM might be to blame for slowing it down). Or it might attract people who want to move their various fights somewhere new, and editing out posts is a bitch on this thread.

Just sayin'.

We did it.

Verizon. Apple SE phones as they fit the hand better than most of the others. Outside of the Otterbox case mine is a neat-o silver color. Inside the case it's black.

Now we gotta learn to use them phones, cuz we'd' always been flip phones and Sprint. Sprint since using them for our long distance carrier in the early 90s. Thank gnu! the phone numbers are the same.

See, back about 2.5 weeks ago my less-than-a-year-old flip phone croaked. I took it in, Sprint fooled with it, and offered me some really stupid plans to replace it. Well, we'd decided that we wanted a GSM network, texting, and a modicum of data (use wifi, let others supply the connection whenever you can). So we did. And with only 128GB in each phone I simply don't know how we'll be able to support all that we want to do!

Anyway, off to DC and then Iceland on the 15th, back on Oct. 2. Then off to see a neice git herself hitched in St. Louie on the 14th and then to Manchester, NH and then home until roughly November 12 and then back on the day after Tgiving and then...home. Nothing on the schedule for me (Pat's got a thing in early February) after that -- yet.

I'm on Verizon, mainly due to inertia. They bought up Alltel, who we originally signed on with years ago. I could possibly save a few bucks by shopping around, but I would have to endure subliminal intimidation from phone device store employees, who tend to be ironically attired Millennials with funny haircuts. No thanks.

Our visitors have left.

Do you remember, Mom, when I was doing the pro rasslin' circuit as The Terran Terror? I had that little dog, The Terran Terror Terrier, as my sidekick. And I had the The Terran Terror Terrier's Terrarium for sale in comic books. Good times, back then. I remember when we sold a truckload of city-customized ones, The Terran Terror's Terrier Trenton Terrarium, in New Jersey. I gave you all the profit from you vacation to Tobago and we called it The Terran Terror's Terrier's Trenton Terrarium Tobago Trip, and you ate all those tamales. (I shan't continue with this, although I could quite easily.)

Acme, it's unlikely we'll get much of anything from Irma unless it tracks much further west than currently anticipated. Looks like the eye is going to pass over the I10-I75 interchange on its way into Georgia. That's almost 300 miles east of where I live.

I have several of his stories in my listening queue for my mp3 player. I listen to books during my daily commutes instead of news - I can't take all Trump all day. I heard part of an interview with Salmon Rushdie yesterday, in which he said times have become so bizarre that magical realism isn't a great feature for modern books, but hyper-realism is coming back. Because of Trump.

I had never even heard of Philip K Dick until a few days ago, when Channel 4 here in the UK started advertising a series of stories called Philip K Dick's Electric Dreams, and it looks most interesting! Right up my alley, knowing my tastes! Starts on Sunday 17th of this month and I'm really looking forward to it!

Looking at him on IMDB, it appears I have already seen some of his stuff, without knowing it was his - The Adjustment Bureau being the most recent. Bring it on!!!

Of course, I meant "PKD", not "PDK". PDK is Phillip D. Kick, not Phillip K. Dick. Phillip D. Kick was not an author at all. He was a janitor at an elementary school in Gary, Indiana. A film based on one of his stories would be a surefire failure since he was barely literate and had the imagination of a garden slug.

Hi, Mom!

Have you ever noticed that it's impossible to make a bad film based on a Phillip K. Dick story? If PDK were still alive, he'd probably write a story in which several film-makers attempted to intentionally make bad films from his stories, but they all turned out to be a roaring successes. Then they'd make a film based on that story and, needless to say, it would be great.
