    Yakuzza Lethecus: i was just thinking of your bee :)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, very playful
    Riddle Sideways: and snoopy (and woodstock) are great philosophers
    Riddle Sideways: most of us learned how the world works from them
    Bleu Oleander: yes!!
         all those funny lessons the Peanuts characters have taught us.
    Riddle Sideways: the gentle art of informing others that our food dish is empty
    Yakuzza Lethecus: have you been to woodstock when it happened riddle ?
    Riddle Sideways: yes, was actually there

    Bleu Oleander: haha!
    Riddle Sideways: learned so much there
    Riddle Sideways: if could only remember what
    Bleu Oleander: was just going to ask that :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, even been there propably had a lot of conversational value since it was hyped so much afterwards
    Bleu Oleander: hi Xirana
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Riddle Bleu ,Yaku:)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe we can learn about what and how our society somehow thinks is preservable for the next generations, so i wonder what made woodstock then that special if noone learned anything ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey riddle
    Yakuzza Lethecus: xirana

    Yakuzza Lethecus: gosh
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, back now
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Xiran
    Riddle Sideways: son, got home late last night and had not greeted him yet
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Riddle:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: what do you mean exactly Yaku..I can't see the relaton between your two statemets
    Riddle Sideways: oops, typing in the silent zone again
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, riddle mentioned that he had been to woodstock, but couldn´t remember what he had learned
    Xirana Oximoxi: to preserv / and to learnr from woodstock
    Riddle Sideways: was kidding, think we all learned great amounts from it
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah OK :)
    Riddle Sideways: learned many useful things.
    Riddle Sideways: like how to take off your cloths
    Xirana Oximoxi: haha

    Bleu Oleander: hi Eliza :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Riddle Sideways: Morning Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bleu, Riddle, Ya, Xirana :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to see you all
    Riddle Sideways: learned that I was not alone
         Please to remember or imagine the times.  Teenage has it's own mental illness, alienation, descoveries.  Usually, you think you are the only one that thinks the way you do.  You were raised in the 50's family ethos and all those paradymns broke down.  Went off to university and learned (funny that) and became open.  An "I" saw a "We".  Birth of Woodstock Nation.

    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Eliza
    Riddle Sideways: and again learned that new media can not tell you a story like being there can
    Riddle Sideways: *news
         Like they said "this stuff ain't in the movie... it is coming to a mind near you".
    Bleu Oleander: hi Bruce
    Riddle Sideways: morning bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Good morning, folks.
    Eliza Madrigal: Morning Bruce :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bruce

    Riddle Sideways: 500K come together for 3 days of peace and love and the News media reported traffic delays
       Xirana Oximoxi: hi Bruce
    Riddle Sideways: so everytime they report more 'traffic problems', you have to wonder if a woodstock is going on in there
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, it built a dislike of 6pm 'News' shows
    Riddle Sideways: reporters can not get to nor stay long at actual news
    Riddle Sideways: so reports something else
    Eliza Madrigal thinks of the loony tune with the oven ... every time bugs bunny gets thrown in its a party but there is nothing going on when the one throwing bugs in, goes in themself
    Riddle Sideways: all in the way you look at it
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: what appears when you look across the fence at something
    Bleu Oleander: who listens to 6pm new anymore?
    Riddle Sideways: what appears when you wade into it
    Riddle Sideways: we are so warped that 'news' stories come from Jon Stewart show now
    Eliza Madrigal: I like CBS Sunday Morning still, though even that has been a while
    Bleu Oleander: what's warped about that? hehehe

    Riddle Sideways: image of 13 avs sitting here. having read the same 4 pages. each with a different take/points/questions/feelings
    Riddle Sideways: then obserum would report on the 6pm news

    Eliza Madrigal: Stewart plays too much other news ... had to stop watching him, giggles
    Eliza Madrigal: :) but I do think there is a place for shows like the cbs one which give personal and 'town' stories, etc
    Riddle Sideways: almost stopped watching too.
    Eliza Madrigal: as well as the big events of the day
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Boxy.
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Alfred :)

    Riddle Sideways: then caught a show about Gleen Beck
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)

    Riddle Sideways: completely different
    Alfred Kelberry: a fine group of people
    Bleu Oleander: hey boxy
    Eliza Madrigal: see... I wouldn't have even known about Beck if not for stewart
    Riddle Sideways: HI boxy Alf
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Boxy:)
    Eliza Madrigal: @@
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    Alfred Kelberry: all look lovely and beautiful
    Riddle Sideways: yep, would not have know about Beck either
    Eliza Madrigal: you too Boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: may have slept better at night, haha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: At work we mainly listen to radio, the only news i watch in germany that would be the tagesschau in 5 minutes every morning.
    Bleu Oleander: beautiful boxy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: glenn beck?

    Alfred Kelberry: aww... i'm touched :)
    Riddle Sideways: thanks boxy, your nose has hopefully gotten the topic on to better areas
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: umm
    Riddle Sideways: doggies are good at that
    Riddle Sideways: a dog can walk in a room and all chat stopps
    Bleu Oleander: yes they are :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it happen also the opposite, people sitting in a room not knowing about what to talk and if a dog comes in it gives a lot of chat:)

    Alfred Kelberry: i've thought today about the lack of color on a nano scale. it's kind of weird to imagine.
    Xirana Oximoxi: may I as what is a 'nano'?
    Bleu Oleander: really, really small
    Riddle Sideways: or nano 'scale' not having color
    Alfred Kelberry: 10^-9 m, xir
    Alfred Kelberry: really tiny size :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: thanks Boxy!! :)
    Riddle Sideways: are we looking at it with B/W cameras?
    Alfred Kelberry: electronic microscope
    Alfred Kelberry: visible light wavelength is bigger, so we can't actually see it
    Riddle Sideways begs to differ... google finds lots of new stuff about new classes of color sorters and contracting agents
    Alfred Kelberry: please tell more, riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: try "nano scale color" in search box
    Riddle Sideways: little ones that can bring color to the world of MRIs
    Riddle Sideways: etc.
    Riddle Sideways: ah, and the one about "if you have a cube of pure gold and cut it. what color would the peices be
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, you mean nano scale color detectors?
    Alfred Kelberry: hmm...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: um....
         There is also a box that becomes a hot-air balloon in the room
    Alfred Kelberry: it's a gift from kit :)
    Alfred Kelberry: the wonderful flute maker
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, where is kit these days?
    Alfred Kelberry: no idea :)
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe at the rodeo
    Alfred Kelberry: hiding in the triangles of virtual space
    Riddle Sideways: Kit the flute maker also does hot air balloons?
    Alfred Kelberry: apparently :)
    Eliza Madrigal calls ::::come out come out wherever you are:::::

    Alfred Kelberry: ah, is it like a telepathic call? :)

    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... I agree... not always working and working... it's important to stop and enjoi nature
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: new thing learned: this new way of tying shoe laces has me re-wiring brain paths

         ok, some explaining. and an exercise for you.
         Friend mentioned how odd to learn he had been tying his shoe laces ineffectively for 50+ years.
         That it was really hard to learn a new way of tying laces.
         Look down at your shoe laces.
         examine the knot very carefully.  Is it a squ
    are knot in there or only a half hitch and a cross-over.
         Right over left (like I was doing) will produce a granny knot which comes undone easily. 
        See: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/slipping.htm
         try this: http://www.animatedknots.com/shoelac...matedknots.com
         Even if you correctly tie your laces, try something new and completely different: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/knots.htm
