Some states say you should wear seatbelts because "it's our law", like Iowa and Ohio and Washington, and others say "it's the law", like Utah, Montana, and California. There's an interesting psychological game being played with either choice. One appeals to authority and the other to community. Does it say something about the individual states?
The average price for campfire wood in Nova Scotia + NY is about $3. A high of $5 and low of $2.50. Plan accordingly. Be aware that I have no way to normalize by quantity or types of wood. At a camp in California I was robbed, er, payed $7.
The Master Switch, On Theodore Vail, who built AT&T. Vail’s dream of a perfected, centralized industry was predicated on another contemporary notion as well. It may sound strange to our ears, but Vail, a full-throated capitalist, rejected the whole idea of “competition.”
Ever notice how toilet seats get flipped from up to down and down to up between visits, even though you know nobody has been in the bathroom? After much research I've found that toiled seats are entangled. So when one seat even half way across the universe is flipped the entangled seat follows. Spooky. I plan to make a supercomputer from these.
The full range of human ingenuity and perversity is fully exposed by the infinite variety of shower controls. They all have basically the same function and they all manage to do it differently with an equal lack of clarity.
Had my first experience with really fast internet. Wowza. This place out the middle of nowhere has I think fiber to the house. It really changes how you approach using the internet. Who knew the internet could actually be used for streaming?
Thinking how much Emotional Targeting could lift ad rates? If you could prime a person using a feed selection algorithm enough to bias them towards certain ads, you might see a significant increase in conversions. App installs would seem especially susceptible to this sort of manipulation.
In Canada I don't have the right to view a lot of content from Amazon. Which seems odd. It's odd like the idea of states rights versus individual rights. I can go from one state to another and I lose my ability to buy alcohol, for example. One foot over an imaginary line and I've lost my ability to view something I thought I paid for. #messedup
