    Good evening, [chat].

    For your amusement, tales from 2nd grade tutoring:

    (Kid #1 does something weird)
    Me: What the heck are you doing?
    Kid #2: Oooooh, you said a bad word!
    Me: What? "Heck" isn't a bad word.
    Kid #2: It is when you're in 2nd grade!

    Kid has a point!

    If you're skydiving and your parachute fails, there's always a backup. But what if the backup fails, too? That's when you pray that you're jumping with a hero like Dave Hartsock, who risked his own life to save someone else's.

    Hartsock was the instructor paired with Shirley Dygert for her first ever skydive—a challenge she undertook to celebrate her 54th birthday. But the jump took a nightmarish turn when their first parachute failed to fully deploy and the backup chute got tangled up along with it.

    As they were plummeting toward the Earth at 40mph, Hartsock pulled the chutes' control handles to position himself underneath Dygert, hoping to break her fall when they hit the ground. His plan worked: Dygert walked away with only minor injuries, though Hartsock himself was left paralyzed. He's slowly regaining some feeling, but even in recovery he remains humble about his actions:

    "People keep telling me that it was a heroic thing to do...In my opinion it was just the right thing to do. I mean, I was the one who was completely responsible for her safety. What other choices were there?"

    Paris is pretty to look at, but I couldn't live there. It's just...too much like an open air museum.
    is that a problem

    it doesn't sound like a problem

    If you think civilization went downhill after 1870, no. I prefer a more diverse aesthetic encompassing all the advancements made since then.

    I think I read about one where the tandem instructor died and the student lived, similar story.

    Or maybe it was that story.

    if pot becomes a thing that you do a lot, it definitely does not help your motivation or your inertia

    in that case it becomes a question of just cutting it out and reaping the benefits

    It would only be legal in Iowa.


    And it isn't just here, though I do <3 here. Boston, New York, London, Rome. Plenty of other places have managed to allow their cities to age and mature through encompassing the new while preserving some of the best of the old. Though not as much of it as should have been the case. Penn Station being the most egregious example. Regardless there's a vitality and liveliness there thanks to the fact that it isn't stuck, embalmed in the past.

    While you were engaged in stellar engineering I posted some progress on that battletech campaign. With this done, I just need to do some stuff about repair and salvage and it's good to go.

    you are a cool dude and all.

    but those things you just said

    were not cool :(

    although ciders can be delicious. If you take apple cider and warm it in the microwave or on the stove and add a bit of whiskey or brandy.

    so good.
