    Secondary Benefit

    I like the O'Reilly books with the animal portraits on them. I have a tight left shoulder, it has to do with flexibility, anyway these books seem to help me to loosen that area, and so can the Bible. I play a left handed violin for the same reason although in recent years it did not give me the relief that it used to. At the beginning I would play for 30 minutes and I was in the clouds for the next couple of hours. I just have to read for 15 minutes and than stretch that arm, it just cracks like a mould but the shoulder still has tightness. It is only after I became ambi dexterous, in fact this happened on Halloween some years ago. I figure that I can get through books easier if they also feel good. Yes even Programming Principals too however the O'Reilly felt easier to go down otherwise I'd be further into the book. I never knew that I was going to eat my books, and I hope that I don't come looking for Bjarne after I eat all my bookshelves...if that is the actual truth of the devil. I actually was thinking about a new Marvel movie where Stroustrup is a scientist and he makes the robot called ROM...its an old comic book. Why doesn't he make ROM?

    I'm the devil, haha. I found out in 2006. A bit tired but I'm used to it on Sunday. So there are two sides to everything. Looks like animals on one of the sides. I would like to go over there although there is supposed to be an option. If I changed sides than I could starts tooo see things differently.

    You might have to wear an Akubra. It worked okay today but I was tired. The book was Gnu Emacs by O'Reilly. Definitely relaxing...not sure if I am with them or against them because of what is on the hat.

    I mean, I like books that feel good too. I'm always fondling my books. I don't stretch first. I heard that was bad for you. I think I started after reading a biography on Albert Einstein. Felt so good. Had scalloped edges. Real nice. I just wanted to fondle all the books after that. Yes. Even ones like the "For Dummies" series. I didn't know what to think. Was I weird? Was this puberty? What of that was the just turning point? Is that when I became booksexual? I don't like "getting through a book". That's disgusting. The entire point of a book is the tactile stimulation. Looking back, I always wonder if Albert Einstein was speaking too me somehow one booksexual to another. I'm even writing a book for Harlequin about a frumpy booksexual Einstein saving the day by always having a nice leather bound handy!

    That's official then. I'm the weird one. I always felt awkward with the fact I love to rub my nose against an open book. Being on a bookstore is a terrible experience for me, unless I let go of my social inhibitions.

    I have been known to rub my nose against my Kindle. It usually happens when I fall asleep while reading.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    It's possible - he could be a little dirty at times (youtube).

    *sigh*
    I tried to turn a page in a physical book by touching the surface.
    Was genuinely surprised for a while that it didn't work.
