My life in bullet-points (again)
I read Zits every morning. Today’s was particularly funny, I thought.
- Liked this quote: "You cannot live an authentic life without mastering the art of disappointing people." Cheryl Richardson
- And this one: "Thinking without awareness is the main dilemma of human existence." Eckhart Tolle
- But this is another fake Buddha quote doing the rounds on Twitter, quotations sites, etc: ” ‘If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change’ – Buddha.” The entire tone of that statement is so far from anything I’ve read in any form of Buddhist scripture that I’m astonished anyone familiar with Buddhism would think for a moment this is genuine. And yet I see Buddhists passing this quote on as if it were.
- It’s good to know I live in the land of the free. Now you’re not a criminal in Colorado for watering your garden with rainwater. (But I believe it’s still illegal to fill your own gas tank in Oregon).
- Interesting article about fireflies. I’d have titled it, "Why females prefer flashers." That’s why the NYT will never employ me.
- Speaking of which, here’s the NYT on the Dalai Lama’s Science Initiative.
- I think it’s interesting how many people call the iPod Touch the "iTouch." Suggests the real name is a bit awkward. A bit of a mis-step by Apple, I think.
- The very talented E. Christopher Clark is raising money through Kickstarter. Donors get copies of his new book once it’s done (and other goodies).
- Norm Coleman conceded! Go Franken!
