In the news this week…
Q: What created this 6.5 foot circle, lovingly sculpted and encrusted with shells, found recently by an underwater photographer?
A: A puffer fish! (no, really)
Strange attractions, or why Newton’s universe made no sense. This is gonna get historical.

I am currently sitting in a rolly chair backwards, one of my legs over the side, the other leg trapped between the back of the chair and the arm. When I tried to get out it was rather painful, so I will avoid doing that and write a bit first.
Please don’t think I’m blaming the chair for my predicament; in fact, I like this chair a lot. I got it last year from Bed, Bath, and Beyond and it has served me nobly and well for my perpetually-working-in-room needs. No, friends, the problem is not with the chair.
The problem is with society.
