I suspect that "content creator" now includes a lot of activity that is only intended to keep people's attention in the general vicinity of advertising and pay the creator a stipend. I collaborated on a successful YouTube entry as well, but only to make helpful technical information availa...

The Yak-shaving song: https://genius.com/Harry-belafonte-a-hole-in-the-bucket-lyrics Circular dependencies are even worse than distractions. After my epic move here, I pretty much sat in shock among my boxes, but there was also a stack of rough lumber. After two weeks, I located my saw and power scr...

If cleaning positions are awkward, it means I have not been stretching enough, and should be glad for the timely notice. Some truth in that, for many tasks. But with weeding a garden the problem isn't about being unable to crouch down and get on with it, it's about what happens after I've been in t...

If cleaning positions are awkward, it means I have not been stretching enough, and should be glad for the timely notice. In Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, the most on-topic passage is about the morning of a valve adjustment. He treats it as a ritual, and the precision tools as sacred. He...

While a lot of people probably don't dream of being wildly important (and they probably don't want the stress that would go with that), they also realize that being seen as superfluous / unneeded is really - really - dangerous because in that case the social contract doesn't quite extend to where y...

I built prototypes and wrote technical articles, but nobody stole the ideas. Some are re-doing the work incrementally. Just using up some scraps to accommodate my PTSD got me six pages in a book this year. I've had some of my photos re-used, and some articles on social, economic, and political views...

I want my work to have significant effects, but I don't care if my name is on it. If I were homeless and had a puppy, I would still be supremely important to it.

Ya gotta burn sumpin to boil water ...to make steam. First they used logs, then they used coal, and finally they used petroleum towards the end of the age of steam. So its smoke from the fire that comes out of the smokestack. Its steam vapor that comes out of the whistles, and probably other "...

Try to dig back in your memories to where the obsession began. You probably saw a dramatic life change with weight change, and it took up too much space in your head as the primary factor in success or failure. Life is quirky. Cass Elliot worked really hard to get thin, and the audience didn't like ...

To lose weight, never lose those last two pounds of water you don't need in an emergency. Stay well hydrated and you will have more energy to burn fat, and the water needed to process it. Also, it is far easier to control your diet at the store than the cupboard. Sugar-free soda makes you hungry, an...

My weight obsession is applied to things I build. There is no good reason for a land vehicle to weigh more than it carries.

Cleaning up after an earthquake or tornado is a "very physical thing." Cleaning up after a meal or a bath is not. To stay fit on housework, you'd have to be doing 12 hours of work in 8 most days. There was a guy who was so bored that he kept up his New Year's resolution to go to the gym, e...

I heard a "worst day of my life story." A boy about ten, on his birthday, got the news that his school was burning down. He got dressed for winter and went to wait for a ride from his Uncle to see it. Then, there was a train wreck in town and the Uncle forgot his first errand and went to h...

I'd rather resist current Nazis than worry about cancelling old ones. I'm just glad that we have had a fairly well-known name, and think it is absurd to try to re-train everybody. I also don't care much about the DSM. It is more like a chronicle of fashion than hard fact. An accurate diagnosis for m...

Your mom could use a lot of counselling, or at least some "passenger instructions" from your driving instructor. I can't even remember which parent taught me to drive. I was mostly self-taught off-road and encouraged to stop needing a chauffeur ASAP, so the instruction period was brief, bu...

For over a century, until about 1905, improving steam engines and trains was the closest thing to a job at NASA they had.
The Negro staff in the Pullman cars were not home much, but they were some of the best-paid men in the ghetto.
