                    That was the only thing I was counting. combined with the eventual war with Pakistan, they're going to lose a zero.

                      This is a perfect description of what I aim for in not structuring as much of my time as possible:

                      That evening had no destiny at all; since it was clear, I went out to take a walk and to recollect after dinner. I did not want to determine a route for my stroll; I tried to attain a maximum latitude of probabilities in order not to fatigue my expectation with the necessary foresight of any one of them.

                        Found this on FB this AM:

                        I found this on another timeline but had trouble sharing it, so I am re-posting it.

                        GREAT SEA STORY
                        The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia. The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought Captain John DS. Phillips, the result. The Warrimoo's position was LAT 0? 31' N and LONG 179 30' W. The date was 31 December 1899. "Know what this means?" First Mate Payton broke in, "We're only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line". Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving the navigational freak of a lifetime.
                        He called his navigators to the bridge to check & double check the ship's position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed.
                        The calm weather & clear night worked in his favor. At mid-night the SS Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crossed the International Date Line! The consequences of this bizarre position were many:
                        The forward part (bow) of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere & in the middle of summer.
                        The rear (stern) was in the Northern Hemisphere & in the middle of winter.
                        The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899.
                        In the bow (forward) part it was 1 January 1900.
                        This ship was therefore not only in:
                        Two different days,
                        Two different months,
                        Two different years,
                        Two different seasons
                        But in two different centuries - all at the same time!

                          One cool thing I learned is that "dork" had perjorative connotations in the 1960s; it meant socially inept. But it's been taken back and is now being used as a compliment.

                            It’s all about context. Favorite example: the same word can have different baggage attached to it, depending on the culture. Thanks to Bugs Bunny, “Nimrod” is used as an insult in the US. But why did Bugs Bunny repeatedly call Elmer Fudd Numrod? At the time, it was simply sarcastic: Nimrod is a name that comes from Genesis, where Nimrod is mentioned as a mighty hunter. Over time, though, after generations of school kids imitated art by calling each other Nimrod, the meaning morphed into a more generalized reference to a dumb or inept person. In the UK, no such transition occurred, so the term Nimrod has retained its original definition as a mighty hunter, to the point that their submarine-hunting aircraft was lovingly named the Nimrod.

                            When I worked with a bunch of BAE engineers on F-35 in Fort Worth, many of them had company swag (shirts, wallets, keychains, etc) proudly emblazoned with the word Nimrod, which amused us American engineers to no end.

                              It was still a pejorative in the 80s.

                                "Dork", "Geek", and "Nerd" have all gone through a 180* shift in context over the last 20 years within a majority of American society. They were all derogatory in the 80's but have become compliments and badges of honor.

                                We've also seen use of "Gay" and "********" fall out of use over that time. They were commonly used to describe something as being lame/dumb, but have fallen out due to the obvious negative context associated with them. (the *****'s are for the R-word that mean delayed/slow)

                                Hell, 8 years ago the word "yeet" didn't even exist, ha ha ha.

                                Language evolves over time.
