Well, it was MESSENGER’s ten year anniversary yesterday. The world is not a safer place, no lives have been saved, and milk still goes sour after a spell. Kittens still die, killers still live, and Obama is still president.
But MESSENGER is one thing that seems to be working mostly as it was intended, so I am content, at least until Ebola or the wave of the world’s illegal immigrants swamp us under.
Two weeks ago as the wife and kids were still in the PNW visiting family, I was shopping for myself and muttering. Muttering is something I forgot that single people do (or at least I did) and it came back surprisingly quickly.
Mid-mutter I saw a display sign that said simply:
Wow. If I had checked it out I could have found an alternative to food, but I had a house to go clean and a MineCraft mine that needed digging.
According to Thomas Sowell, thinking may now be obsolete. I think he is right.
