Tell YOU the truth..
I almost missed the bus this week…
Hey, as narrator I am behoven to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but..
Speaking of which I think I can honestly say that Calcutta has finally lost its reputation for a being a black hole.. and a jolly good thing too.
Mind you, doesn’t the GoM look miraculously blue in Yahoo news items.. ah, no, not gotcha, not blue sheen—cos that’s all evaporated! And Kev’s giant centrifuge combo aka simply marvellous what spin wash machines will do.. made the fellow. Next one will be dancing with tarballs, you see if it isn’t.
Well, a little news to wash off those blues. He and I have been rather immersed in the trickies of intense concentration; something Me had more brains than commit to. And yes, you are quite correct in sensing that we two have the headache..
Kid you not.. heck, witness the following aside made by one matt mullenweg@WP who, having read Joe Keohane’s How Facts Backfire, sallied forth with a few lines from it..
“ In reality, we often base our opinions on our beliefs, which can have an
uneasy relationship with facts. And rather than facts driving beliefs, our
beliefs can dictate the facts we chose to accept. They can cause us to twist
facts so they fit better with our preconceived notions. Worst of all, they can
lead us to uncritically accept bad information just because it reinforces
our beliefs. This reinforcement makes us more confident we’re right, and even
less likely to listen to any new information. ”
Isn’t that marvellous. Says it all… really. In the right place… for the correct purpose..
But putting it down credibly with the most limiting of web graphics tools.. something else again. Had He and I tinkering with a new app code for a day or two.. Until we latched on the two relief wells notion. Which in all probability folks will recognise as overkill. Necessary for the prevailing GoM conditions of course.. and whilst they did not apply to us and the venture afoot so to speak.. the division of work aspect promised much..
In the end, bless Me, the answer… in sheer darned persistence.. that tool has gotten full and extensive application.
BTW, if you take the trouble to examine the quote above you’ll likely note – I tried a handwritten version for a digital camera set-up which did not work out – a lot of effs are present… numerous ‘belief’ s and likewise ‘fact’ s.. anyone for the top award on where this is going.? Effs are what both words have in common… no!
Well, I have to tell YOU that folks in the GoM in the week that was have found plenty in the expression of both.
Hope things are bearing up and mebbe I’ll be seeing you sooner than I’d thought..
ps: Sad about the boys in Afghanistan and I’m pretty sure they’ll have the recognition and treatments they deserve for the rotten luck of being in the wrong place at the wronging time..
