Doing nothing is hard.
Yesterday I did one little eyeball-taxing task. Had to be done. But it wrecked my whole day and set the progress on my healing back to zero. Hurt like the dickens, besides. So today I took Commentariat member ~Qjay’s advice and rested my eyes.
Doing nothing is hard. But productive. Late afternoon and I’m genuinely on the mend now (knock wood). I can manage a links post before I return to my non-working, non-reading, non-DVD watching, very still and silent day.
- The tragedy (and travesty) of Rainbow Farm was buried by 9/11. We We should not forget it. (Long but excellent read via Metalgodz at Claire’s Cabal)
- Facebook and Apple personify the new tech divide.
- Yes, it’s yet another food/health study. But this one I’d heed. The evidence has been piling up for some time. Six common artificial sweeteners used in soft drinks and prepared foods are toxic to our gut bacteria.
- The notion’s getting more mainstreamy all the time: Should you delete your social media?
- Okay. So what do you do with this absurd bit of cultural correctness if the performer you’re not allowed to applaud is … blind? (H/T Shel)
- And speaking of political correctness, three academics have been cheerily pranking academic journals with papers on various goofy grievance studies to demonstrate the abysmal standards that have taken over the humanities. Good monkeywrench, profs!
- Earth, wind, and fire. 🙂
- In your awwwwwww story for today, a scientist-grandpa performs the famous marshmallow experiment on his three-year-old granddaughter. This one’ll melt your steely little heart.
