    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Pema Pera: Oh, I'm fine, interesting to be in Japan, with ongoing earthquakes
    Pema Pera: amazing series of aftershocks, daily still, in Tokyo
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, I read the log where you spoke a little about that
    Pema Pera: but in Kyoto all is normal, much further south-west
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and then looked it up
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i do worry
    Pema Pera: north-east of Tokyo there are still several earth quakes each day . . .
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sometimes, about you and Hana :)
    Pema Pera: well, Hana is safely in Kyoto
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ok
    Pema Pera: it's me who is commuting furiously
    Pema Pera: :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) yes

    SophiaSharon Larnia: true
    Pema Pera: how have you been?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: very well
    Pema Pera: how is your work going, are you enjoying it?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: been busy in rl, which is good for me :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm, lets just say Ive been looking at other options
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (which isnt my style, but it is what it is )
    Pema Pera: hopefully the economy will keep recovering further, offering more options
    SophiaSharon Larnia: theres plenty for what I do
    Pema Pera: good to hear that!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Pema Pera: what has kept you busy in RL, if I may ask?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: World Cafe Host Pema? (your tag?) Thats the name of a radio show here in Philadelphia :)
    Pema Pera: hahaha, I had not realized that!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my sister had a baby, now has two, and my other sister moved here from California, and other things
    Pema Pera: funny, as soon as you accept membership with a new group in SL, you are effectively coronated!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Susan :)
    Pema Pera: I'm sure that will keep you busy!
    iwandertoo Resident: waves :)
    Pema Pera: Hi Susan!
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Pema Pera: so you're steeped in family visits now?

    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Hokon Cazalet: hiya
    Storm Nordwind: Do we all stand tonight?
    Pema Pera: what does "mobile" mean, Susan, in this context?
    iwandertoo Resident: lol...pls, no. (mobile phone)
    Pema Pera: you can access SL from a mobile phone?
    iwandertoo Resident: yes through a mobile browswer
    Hokon Cazalet: !
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Pema Pera: how nice -- and you can even see the avatars?
    Hokon Cazalet: didnt know that was possible, but makes sense that somebody made it
    Pema Pera: in a tiny window?
    iwandertoo Resident: ×client
    Pema Pera: few pixels each?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    Hokon Cazalet: lol each person is a small square
    iwandertoo Resident: just. the chat
    Pema Pera wondering whether only Alfred will come out realistically)
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe
    Storm Nordwind: Eden used to come to sessions, text only, last year. I arranged for her to rez sitting on a small stool
    iwandertoo Resident: I think there is one with visual as well
    Pema Pera: the ultimate in new fashion: a one-pixel avatar!
    Storm Nordwind: Probably wouldn't rez any faster!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Pema :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Pema Pera: sorry, have to go catch my train -- am in Kyoto station now, about to leave for Tokyo
    Hokon Cazalet: aw

    Storm Nordwind: Bye for now!
    Pema Pera: thanks, Sharon!
    Pema Pera: bf
    Pema Pera: bfn
    Storm Nordwind: As fast as a speeding bullet train
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: how fast is a speeding bullet anyway
    Hokon Cazalet: from an m16, its 1km/s
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: huh
    Hokon Cazalet: m16 rifle, bullets in that travel about 1km/s
    Hokon Cazalet: or from that
    Storm Nordwind: 3 times as fast as the arrow from a compound bow
    Hokon Cazalet: !
    SophiaSharon Larnia: speed of light = 299792.458 km/s
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe
    Hokon Cazalet: yup
    SophiaSharon Larnia: grins
    Hokon Cazalet: bullets are slow compared to light particles =(
    Storm Nordwind: speed of light = approx 1ft/nanosecond
    Hokon Cazalet: !
    Hokon Cazalet: thats fast
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm measurement of speed to measurement of time, there was a thought there somewhere :)
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    Hokon Cazalet: velocity = distance/time
    Hokon Cazalet: you can do fun calculus stuff with that =P
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes thx, you ever think something and then forget completely where you were going with it, but it felt important
    iwandertoo Resident: all the time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh well :)
    Hokon Cazalet: no thats fine, sometimes small things can open up huge vistas, i like this schopenhauer quote
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    Hokon Cazalet: "the goal is not to see what has not been seen before, but to think about what we see that which has not been thought about before" (something like that, dont have to exact wording)
    iwandertoo Resident: its terribly difficult to keep things organized...my mind jumps constantly
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: many things are interesting
    iwandertoo Resident: like it, Hokon
    Hokon Cazalet: me too =)
    Storm Nordwind: More random time and distance facts: In our 90 second break, sunlight travels 18% of the distance from the sun to the earth
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hahah love it
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and yes hokon, im not sure if i agree with the quote 100%
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but i like it
    Hokon Cazalet: "The task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what nobody yet has thought about that which everyone sees.” - Arthur Schopenhauer
    Hokon Cazalet: there we go
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe thats cool, its hard to find something in philosophy one likes 100% =)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Hokon Cazalet: i like how when i see the moon, im seeing how it was a second ago, not how it is now
    SophiaSharon Larnia: or me a couple days ago -- was full one day and then was almost half and felt like only one day
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe
    SophiaSharon Larnia: pretty bad if youre telling time by the moon
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: do we miss that one second delay
    iwandertoo Resident: I don't think so
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (i'm sleepy sorry ) :))
    iwandertoo Resident: "staying power"
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe i gotta head to bed shortly myself
    iwandertoo Resident: I have to catch another bus in about 5 mins
    Hokon Cazalet: !

    Storm Nordwind: 10pm in the pub
