Monday, May 31, 2010: Potential

We never do more than 4 or 5 climbs on week-nights – we did 7 tonight. We never do two 5.10+ in – we did tonight. After the second 5.10+, my climbing partner remarked “Here I was expecting to do a few 5.9s and those two 5.8s.  I don’t know what we were thinking.” IContinue reading “Monday, May 31, 2010: Potential”

Thursday, May 27, 2010: Felt like Wednesday!

Today brought the challenge “Proof of birth”. Um. I exist. Cloning technology is not yet so far advanced that it is possible to clone a human.

Two epidemiologists take the methods forContinue reading “Book review: The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone”

Reminded today of conversation I had while living in the mountains – mentioned to a friend of mine that really, so many of our problems and personal issues could be solvedContinue reading “Agape and surving zombie attacks”
