    The sculpture on the right is possible, the sculpture on the left seemingly isn't but it's an optical illusion. They're the same sculpture seen at different angles.

I was skeptical of habitrpg.com, but holy fk this is so helpful (and fun). Collecting imaginary points and achievements is extremely motivating. Humans are silly.

    clever and silly. Think about it, kids are growing up with computers before they can talk. This makes sense, possibly disturbing sense... ;)

Been editing endless Ukraine stories. Tonight, putting quarters in the machine to update my Metro card, one of the coins was spat out. I noticed right away it was foreign, which is why it didn't go through, but did not inspect until later. IT was 5 kopeks from Ukraine. Cue Twilight Zone music. :eek3:

Scott, I thought you said you changed the online version of chapter one of The Pood, using the update I posted in thread? If so you must have changed it somewhere else. I'm talking about changing it here: http://thepoodnovel.com/excerpt.html At that location, it's still the old text.

    I'm guessing you meant that you replaced it in the book, which is fine, but it also needs to replace what's online.

    Well, I can do that too, but figured in the case of the excerpt it really didn't matter. I can work on it.

    It just matters because I think the (slight) editing has improved the excerpt, and it is the excerpt to which I'm pointing the agent.

I was at the encore performance of Borodin's "Prince Igor" last night and one of the intermission features was a preview of the HD broadcasts for next year and... HOLY SHIT THEY'RE DOING "THE DEATH OF KLINGHOFFER" AT THE MET!!! :faint: So you can see it anyway despite not coming to Long Beach in March, davidm. :cheer3:

davidm, "Prince Igor" will be broadcast starting at noon from the Metropolitan Opera tomorrow, so might be the next best thing if you can't make the live performance. You can listen to it at any number of sites or through their own live stream. http://operacast.com/thissat.htm

    Also, if you miss the start of the noon performance, several other stations are broadcasting it later. Check the listings at the above site for times.
