The population pharma-
cokinetics of data from
almost every smartphone
on the market can be com-
pressed into twenty sonar
images. These resemble
those taken from a hydro-
power project by means

of a new algorithm for the
conversion of a binary image,
then printed out onto paper
extracted from the crack
of time in which diffusion
during thawing is minimized.

               the size of the hotel can make it more difficult to navigate

                              I'm going to start doing my part to help this place

                                                            amazing artists ready to share their knowledge

                                                                           they tell us how various forms can co-exist & be equally valid

The transition of Cold-Dryness

I really love getting my
eyebrows done by my
psychiatrist. I have not

eaten all day; have gently
filled my colon with warm
filtered water; have spent

the afternoon filling in
crossword puzzles. Years
pass quickly & my eye-

brows keep growing. Time
to visit my shrink & fill
the room with foul odors.

I remarked on this

in the days of Bush. Even more appropriate now.
“The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even a mob with him by the force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second or third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

“The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920
