And I’m just going to point to my previous post on the subject.
I’m currently clean-shaven, but, when I have a beard, it’s normally the third from the left on this diagram. I would have thought it would be considered more evil than trustworthy.
I don’t care much for cilantro. Although I recognize that it’s a vital component in certain salsa recipes, too much of it makes things acquire a lemony soap flavor to me. I remember at an office Christmas dinner many years ago being offered a spoonful of (read: forced to try) a cilantro soup. Yuck! Well, it seems that there is a genetic component to whether you like the flavor of cilantro. I find that easy to believe; I’ve long thought it myself. Personally, I suspect that it’s sex-linked, because most of the people I know who like cilantro are women, and most of the people I know who dislike it are men.
The iPad is a neat toy. I don’t really want one, but I could certainly have fun with one. One of the major complaints is that you can’t print from it. Well, the user community has taken care of that limitation.
Speaking of Apple products, in this case, the iPhone, this third-party app looks interesting.
I think I’ve got some ideas for unproductively sucking up more of my free time.
I’ll finish with a few videos. First, a nice version of Moondance on uke:
Next, a trailer for a movie of obvious class and tone:
Finally, a link to the Nova presentation on fractals.
Via Dustbury, I find that the Nissan Cephiro is being recalled in Japan because of the sudden acceleration problem.
I hadn’t realized that Cephiro was a model of car, although I perhaps should have – I used to enjoy the anime series Magic Knight Rayearth. In the series, three young girls are called to save a world named Cephiro, and many of the characters they meet there are named after models of cars.
