@Johncdvorak Did I ever tell you about the time I asked Edward Snowden about his glasses? Are you buying it???? What a sentimental chap. Sorry in advance for the audio quality, it was not entirely planned out.
Episode 2 of my silly podcast has dropped. Episodes always under 3 minutes so have a quick listen!
I decided to launch a comedic podcast where I deadpan or dramatically read the lyrics of songs. Check it out! Beware it’s explicit. https://podcastindex.org/podcast/3959309
I just realized it’s live show time but I’m still 2 shows behind, so will have to listen in post. #IRLgotintheway
Today’s Thoughtful Thought: I had a comment on Instagram removed because I referred to myself as an “ignorant American.”
How I long for the days when we had free speech, and a non-triggered public who embraced diversity of opinion. Now we limit diversity to race & sexual preference—why limit diversity? Seems counter to the very definition of the word.
@adam This may have been covered because I'm a couple episodes behind due to travel, but according to LaCroix's website:
"How is ‘LaCroix’ pronounced?
La-CROY. It rhymes with ‘enjoy’."
Look at this hit piece against J&J. https://abc7ny.com/covid-after-vaccine-johnson-and-edison-covid-19/10508285/
@adam I learned a great German word today, “Fachidiot.” Definition: a person who has no interest outside of their subject. I’d modify “Over-socialized, under-informed,” adding “over-educated” —who think they know everything as a result, ergo Fachidiot.
Dvorak doesn’t approve of “great question,” and either do I but the use of “Finally” is out of control in the media. It’s so annoying. For example, Gizmodo tells us here that a 27” iMac is not enough and apparently the world is clamoring for a larger display. If anyone has used one of these things, 27” is quite large as an all-in-one, and I know people who complain they’re even a bit unruly. Who’s longing for a much larger iMac display? Nobody I know. Clickbait, indeed.
