"At some point our great-great-grandparents shook their heads in disbelief that you could call anyone on the telephone..."

And yet I can imagine that the evolution of firearms doesn't disturb you one bit. Think the great-great-great-great grandparents could have imagined armor piercing bullets and AK-47s for use as "self defense"?

Just asking.

And even mentioning Rick Springfield is proof positive you are, indeed, on the outside. Oh, and I've never even been on either myspace or facebook, so I may indeed be further outside than you MRW.

I am proud that besides the recess game, I have no idea what foursquare is! I tried myspace and facebook and really didn't like either. I will die without ever being on twitter as well.......

At some point our great-great-grandparents shook their heads in disbelief that you could call anyone on the telephone...you didn't have to go over to their house anymore for a face-to-face visit. I now feel the same about these social networks and messaging. You can have a whole relationship with another person without even seeing them, or hearing their voice. Just two keyboards conversing back and fourth in special code.

R_I, are you telling us that space will get a job when pigs fly? Or that he sees pigs fly when he is in the stars of a drug induced haze?

If nobody worked for anybody, how would things run? That is kind of an esoteric thing there, ain't it spacehog? Life is all about quid pro quo...either that or entitlement mooching. Unless you just happen to be related to Thurston Howell III, lovey.

I watched "Capitalism: A Love Story" last night. I just turned 45 and I'm at a crossroads, just like when I turned 28. 28 was hard. Well, I've decided I'm not going to work for anyone again. Nope, no more of that Maggie's Farm BS for me. Working for someone else is legalized prostitution. BTW, Che' was a scumbag cut throat. Knocked off more of his own soldiers than Saddam. At least I credit Saddam for going out gun's a blazin'. I saw it on youtube. I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more I aint gonna work on Maggie's farm no more Well, I try my best To be just like I am But everybody wants you To be just like them They say sing while you slave and I just get bored I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more. -Bob Dylan, "Maggie's Farm"

Bob, Big Gubmint is trying to make it worse. They will require you to license your house and you can't sell it until it meets EPA Cap and Trade reg's. standards. Selling a fixer upper will be outlawed!

Damn Nanny State!

No, I'm actually attached to all my friends by a series of ropes and strings. When you want to talk with someone, you pull the string to get people's attention, then you talk into the can.

Service works well in town, but is a bit spotty when traveling.

Snap and Multi, upwind of either is a good thing. Being downwind of some Lilacs right now would beat the heck out of both.

"Multidisciplinary (anonymous) says… I was upwind of a burn for the better part of the last 30 hours." I read that as "... upwind of a bum for the better part of the last 30 hours." Silly me.

Mulit, that avatar is like one of Did I say that's puzzles.

and people don't need to know where I am. I thrive in a cloak of anonomity. Shadows slipping through the faceless crowds. Blending into the obscure sea of humanity.

no, I'm not interested in telling the world my exact, geographical location, 24/7.

Foursquare is an app for would be robbers and stalkers, and a terrible, terrible breach of privacy for everyone else.

But all that social media crap just makes people more self centered.

I was upwind of a burn for the better part of the last 30 hours. When I opened the door a while ago, first time it wasn't as noticeable, thankfully.It still was at 5:30. I need some sleep. I may have to bathe the dog,or just name him Smoky.

did I hear someone mention strategery?

Boy, they sure got Hwy 59 jacked up if you don't know where to detour...could be like they should put up a little more information on that road closed thing down there...Wasn't so bad going south. Then most of Anderson Clounty was on fire last night...couldn't hardly see the danged road in places.

Thanks, RI, in Béal Feirste (Belfast to you), we just played Dodge Bullets (no squares, no paint, and the balls were either orange or green).

I did for a few days but then I got tired of it. Always trying out new iPhone apps only to find most of them are pointless. :)

Ceal, Foursquare is a game played with the red playground balls on asphalt or concrete. A square is drawn or painted on the ground with 4 quadrants. Each quadrant is numbered or "rank" in a clockwise fashion 1-2-4-3. The ball is put into play by the server, bouncing the ball once, then hitting it into another players square, where they let it bounce once and hit it to another players square. If a player makes an error, they are eliminated. The eliminated player leaves the court, the remaining players move up to the next highest square, and a new player joins the court in the lowest square.

Does that help Ceal?

I had a chip implanted instead.

Some of what Spacehog said yesterday,

"...I've got long-range mace, baseball bats, bb guns, C-4, grenades, stop sticks, a Tech 9, a couple of Uzis, a bullhorn, and some of those James Bond tacks, all in the backseat of my '70 Fleetwood...."

I was wondering if somebody took him to the bunker? Glad he left the RPG's but I am wondering about the liquor.

Saturday night on the Plaza is a harbinger, so beware! I think a strategery meeting is needed to prepare for the "wilding" near you.

Once again I can be accused of being one of the uninformed sigh and this is one of the rare times I will admit to it :) What is four square? Surely there is someone out there eager to inform us.

I would use it if I had a better phone. Am saving my pennies for the Android.

I signed up for an account and somehow indicated to it that I live in Paris, France. Whoops. Could be worse.

I'll fix that when I have a chance to use the darn thing.
