My favorite thing…

One of my favorite things on this Earth is:

Sitting at the state capitol building.
…in the wee hours of the morning

I have easily spent hundreds of hours here.

It’s open 24 hours, heavily guarded, meticulously maintained, and extremely quiet at night.

There is something that is simply marvelous about sitting on one of the war memorials inscribed with the names of thousands of people who have died, sacrificed and fought for the unbelievably cushy and enjoyable life I get to lead.

I sit there and read.  Or plan. Or think.

It’s truly a humbling experience that reminds me we all stand on the shoulders of giants.

I sometimes wonder if others have such a remarkable place to call their own.

Why Facebook Sued Me

You can see all my previous posts about here:

Interesting side note:
Because of the screenshots I’ve posted from of my own Facebook profile back in the day….my whole profile (including phone number, address, email etc.) has been in HUNDREDS of documents including newspapers, magazines, published papers, blog posts, books, news stories and presentations all over the world!

Another interesting side note:
Till this day, if you Google the term “Facebook ASCII”, 98% of the art you find was made by ME! You will see it on many different websites, all by people who:

  • Read my blog posts about how much traffic got.
  • Made their own Facebook-related site.
  • Swiped all the content from FacebookProfile.

After it was bought I didn’t care less.  However the next owner of the site never updated it, then about a year later the site disappeared…

It also doesn’t matter anymore because most of that ASCII made back then is now obsolete due to changes in Facebook’s text editor.

Hot Car = Hot Tea

I used to do this with plastic water bottles,
but plastic bottles + lots of heat = not good.

So now instead of gross water that I never sip, I just keep different flavors of tea in the car all the time!
