A small trilogy

an old macrame book

The topic: that "Western
talk of women's liberation
is nothing but a disguised
form of exploitation of
her body." How do you
begin your speech? With
steely resolve or a total
lack of enthusiasm?

Polychronic behavior

With this rod I

active in vivo to permit structural remodeling

To the Japanese it is a sacred
month, when war & fighting
are forbidden. So, too, are sleep
deprivation & psychosocial
stressors. Soon we will be

offering physical abuse as a
luxury, a new way to stimulate
the creative process. The fumble
gene encodes a fly homologue
of pantothenate kinase. With

it, one can tackle the problem
of gays in pro sports, can over-
ride typical associations with
vegetation structures, can offer
a more quantitative explanation

of exchange currency trading
basics without needing to know
about the current trends in
women's clothes. Without it
soldiers lose battlefield aware-

ness, can no longer decide
with any degree of certainty
what objects to be ignored by
their current robots, if it was a
pleasure to shoot that couple.

Found word for the day

Otoliths — "earstones" — are small white bony structures found in the head of all fish other than rays, sharks, & lampreys. They provide a sense of balance in much the same way that the inner ear provides balance in humans. They also aid in hearing. In some fish, the otolith is connected through fine hairs to the swim bladder & this aids the fish to hear behind itself.

Growth rings, much like those of a tree, record the age & growth of a fish from the date of hatch to the time of death in such detail that everything from the year of hatch, the migration pathways & the temperature of the water can be analysed from the otolith.

a sparse matrix

In league with French counter-revolutionaries resident in Cayenne, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe attempted to smuggle seeds of pepper, nutmeg, & cloves into Yuan Dynasty China. Caught at the border by customs officials, he was told that if he had just tried to bring in smaller quantities of the spices, he may have escaped detection completely. I see, said Mies. Less is more.
