The logic is that action in a dream occurs at the speed of thought.
Just watch it :parrot: It has very nice visual effects (including Leonardo DiCaprio :mrgreen:) if nothing else.

I was going to make a lengthy post, but it was straying too far into the 'revealing other people's personal information' territory, so I'll just make the statement that "voluntourism" is shitty and stupid.

On the other hand, a "vacation" church service trip created a work crew that built a ramp on our house for my daughter.  Hosted by a local church, the majority of the crew was from out of state. 

She's able to come and go as she pleases for the first time in 5 years. 

I know, not quite the same thing, but they do sometimes get lumped together.

I used to volunteer with a group that built houses in Corbin, Kentucky. Certainly not a vacation, and I learned wiring over a few years of being there. But I still wonder what more could have been done if the money that was spent to feed, transport and house us was used to spend more money on building or, hell, hire people to do the work and create desperately needed jobs. And a mob of 50 of teenagers, most of whom have no idea what they're doing and have to be taught, isn't really an efficient way to do the work either.

Honestly, there's no shortage of good band names to be found by looking at things, and yet there are so many bands with terrible names.

Like Fallout Boy. Nobody likes Milhouse, why should anyone like them?

Aw come on Windows, can't take that long to list the contents of a directory with 450,000 files in it, can it?  :psyduck:

edit (to avoid double posting)--
I was flipping channels on the TV and came across a baseball game (Anaheim Angels vs. Texas Rangers). The announcer said, "The runner is about 27 feet from the base and the pitcher throws the ball to the first baseman. How fast does the runner have to run to get back to the base? You gotta be a mathematical genius to figure that out. It must be like 200 miles per hour."  :psyduck:

Does anyone else often hear everyday sounds, like the sound of a glass being set on a table or the rustle of a plastic bag, that immediately remind you of the opening note of a song you listen to regularly and start it playing in your head?

Okay, I dont know where to put it. I am reading a short story written in the 1930s (for anyone curious, The Gilded Pupil by Ethel Lina White), and the following dialog occurs:


Quote
"I want someone to exercise a moral influence on [my fifteen year old daughter]. She is not normal".
"Thymus gland?", hinted Ann.

Anyone know what specifically this refers to? So far I found out that the purpose of the thymus gland was largely unknown and it was blamed for all sorts of problems, up to sudden infant death syndrome (cf "The thymus: from past misconception to present recognition" by one John C. Leonidas) I assume it got blamed for hormonal changes in teenagers?

It may be a reference to some quasi-scientific theory of psychology that was in vogue at the time, similar to:

Quote
THYMUS-CENTRED TYPE

As already mentioned, the thymus has a great influence upon the sex characteristics and sexual life of each person. It lies at the base of the throat at the upper chest, and in early childhood (up to six or seven) is very large and active. Sometimes, however, it does not become as inactive as it should, and we then have hyperthymus persons.

These people carry childhood traits into adult life. Their skin is soft and rounded, there is little sex differentiation, as the organs have been retarded in their development. Thus the thymus-centred male will lack the aggressiveness and dominant emotional attitude of the balanced man, while the women seem sexless and lack the retiring disposition.

The thymus-centred person is often one in whom unbalanced attraction towards his or her own sex is a pathological situation, and not a development from mental or emotional disturbance. The sex organs of such people have been retarded in their normal development, and thus their body is not receiving sufficient male or female hormones to polarise and stabilise them in their own sex.

One also finds that their moral nature does not become mature, and also, because of a pathological cause, they can sometimes become inveterate liars or even criminals.

(of course this particular group of ideas seem to be more recent than your story, but perhaps your story refers to their antecedents?)

My phone's notification light had the annoying habit of pulsing just slowly enough that when it caught my eye, it would be off again when I looked in its direction, and it would take just long enough to come back on for me to start doubting whether it had blinked at all. I'm glad Cyanogenmod let me customize that, I made it blink twice as fast now.

I'm technically Jewish, as is Sarah. She grew up reform, I grew up nothing in particular (I was Jewish, but no bar mitzvah or temple or anything). I'm thinking of getting an adult bar mitzvah before we get married, just to get in touch with my heritage and because we plan on raising our kids Jewish someday. Probably a reform temple, but I've read some interesting things about reconstructionist Judaism. The rabbi who is doing our wedding is probably the only I'll ask to help me with my bar mitzvah though.

Terrible thought of the day that I might have to say for my stand-up comedy routine, being in Cleveland Ohio is probably what kissing your second cousin at a family reunion is like, it only lasts a moment but the regret lasts a lifetime

I've only been in Cleveland for a few hours during a road trip (stopped to go to to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and then get lunch/caffeine for the rest of the trip), but honestly? I rather enjoyed my brief time there.

But since you mentioned Cleveland...

I spent a pleasant night with a second cousin. Lots of hanky minus PIV panky, and it was sort of a lifetime ago -- Thanksgiving 1962 comes to mind. No regrets.

I can only assume Redball actually has a response to that as I seem to recall he's from the general area... (area being the entire freaking MidWest >.>;)

I will say I fully expect that line to haunt me. Whether I use it or not, if I make it at stand up, my first big show, for whatever fucking reason, will be Colombus, Ohio. If Comedy Central ever does a special for me, it will be there. An entire city as my personal albatross, dangling about my neck as I paddle towards comedic doom.

This was in Detroit, in an upstairs bedroom on Trinity on the far northwest side. 16165 comes to mind. The cousin, Mary, was a little younger than I. She died a few years ago, an ordained minister, ministering to whom I'm not sure. There's a lifetime for ya'!

I'm expecting five or six buggies of Amish families in the next hour or so, coming to swim in my little 16x32 pool. If the numbers are like previous years, there'll be three dozen or so, from infants to 30 and 40-somethings. The adult women probably won't be in the pool.
And don't say "pics or it didn't happen." The understanding I have with these folks is that there won't be pics. Dammit.
