Asked by Hibernate (9025 points ) June 12th, 2011

I’m pretty sure everyone learned something new today.

Care to share with others ? Or is it to personal ?

Have fun ^^

There was an interesting exchange in my meditation class today.

Teacher: Why do you meditate?
Student: To increase the happiness in my life.
Teacher: That’s never going to work. Happiness isn’t the purpose of life. Doing something meaningful is.

So, I guess I learned the meaning of life today.

Studying makes you feel so much better in the end.
Never shirk your duties?

Calculating Mahalanobis distance for two variables and Hellinger distance for three.

That’s why I am screwing around here. I need the diversion.

We learned that our bed isn’t big enough for us and our 9-year-old. It’s amazing how much space a little kid can take up. :)

I learned that people who vape (use electronic cigarettes) are some of the friendliest, most generous people on the planet.

Learned a new way to trap rabbits with sticks and some cordage, and that duck tastes fantastic with a chili basil sauce.

@CaptainHarley And I have to design and make a device that does it. Ugh. Don’t worry. I’ll figure it out.

PIty your heirs.

Three weeks of emptying my mother’s apartment of every plastic bag, every pocketbook, every personal letter or note, every reusable stamp, envelop or scrap paper, every vase from the florist’s schlocky collection, every tin of dried up shoe polish, every…has made me very aware of the sins of hoarding.

That dress will not be fashionable in three years.
Those size 8 jeans will never fit me.
That unidentifiable bit of metal or rubber fits nothing, “NOTHING,” I tell you.
I will never wear high heels again.

I learned, yet again, that I prefer intense pain to emotional stability.

Last month a computer virus destroyed a lot of files on my computer, including all my photos.
I have some backed up, somewhere, but haven’t done that in at least 2 years.
The pics I still have are the ones I posted on Facebook, or those I sent to friends.

So, the lesson is: If you want to keep something, you have to share it. If you keep it to yourself, you will lose it, and never get it back.

reijinni's avatar

@filmfann , 2 years is too much time between backups. back up more often.
