Tag Archives: cats keep my sane when they aren’t driving me crazy

Now I’m really annoyed

I made the return trip to the store to get the $1 back I was overcharged yesterday, but for some reason my Sweatcoin app only recorded one step all day in spite of walking more than 2.4 miles (3.91 km) round trip. And I was just checking my phone and there is a critical update for my Sweatcoin app that was buried in my notifications, so I authorized the update.

If I could just find the funds the plans for the Sprint-T are getting close to done, again. And as I was walking around I was thinking about what the car would be like if I could make it a Locost instead of a T-bucket. Now I know most of my readers are not car people, so some of you probably have no idea what a Locost is. Well way back about the time I was born a guy freaking genius took “Simplify and add lightness.” to freaking extremes with a car called the Lotus 7. That car has been in production longer than I have been alive, but is simply too expensive to make at a price point most of the people who want to buy it can afford, and it’s too raw and rough for most of the people who can afford it. So a cottage industry has sprung up making replicas with different powertrains (just look up images for Locosts). Now there is a lot of cross-pollination between the Locost community and the part of the T-bucket community that likes to make left and right turns. So much so that some Locost started as T-buckets, and vice-versa. TBH in some states it’s easier to get a plate for a Locost than a bucket, and others it’s the other way around. But that is a question for the future.

And I need to go take care of the crazy cat.

If I ignore Twitter this was a pretty good day

I read Twitter today, but since I have decided to only pay attention to the cat tweets and memes I’m still pretty close to sane tonight.

I’m still trying to process that last school shooting that I heard about in California. I’m the father of two daughters so it’s not like I don’t understand the 12YO shooter’s motivation, particularly after I found out that the first victim was a male. I mean hormones, and lack of time to learn how to control yourself under their influence, has caused a lot of violence in schools. I have helped tape up a lot of victims of hormonally-driven violence back in the day when the most deadly thing they had access to was big sticks and softball bats. So that part I understand. Where she got the gun and ammo, that’s another question.

Again I have to ask, Why are we the only country where this happens? And why does our government continue to ignore that we are the only country where this happens?

And this subject has upset me to the point of not even thinking about either version of the T-Bucket, if you can believe that.
