Can I do a reverse toast?

Sure, it's never too late.

Someone much harder than me, taught. If you hit, (if you block?), relax after. Too rigid and you may get hit back again.

I think that was self defense though, ... if you have to stay up? First, better to fight without fighting. Practice?

RIPCC

Cosmic died and went to heaven.
Peter asked "You climb 5.7?"
Well, he looked old Peter in the eye, he did,
And he said, "You betcha. Who ya tryin ta kid?"

"I've climbed more miles than anyone here.
I have climbed in the desert without no beer.
I can climb this gate, if you don't mind."
Old Peter just grinned, "Don't blown yer mind."

"I quiz all the climbers who pass this way
And I love it when y'all begin to spray.
There's no need to climb the Pearly Gates.
Your seat at the campfire for you waits."

"But he's not dead, he winked 'is bloomin' eye."--Rhymy the Limey

Ha! Good advice mouse. Also, from a practiced one, I heard, "You're going to have to use your teeth." Still, he had the character, kindness, and practice that made me know he meant it.

Road Trip to Cosmic's Playground (The Return)

Right now I feel like:
I'm truckin' for the turn-off--
Lee Vining's up there and the pass awaits me.
Life's good when I'm on the road, Dylan blaring,
and a hard rain just missed me back in Bishop.

What have I seen, you ask, my darlin' younkers & oldsters?
I saw a man on a bike riding backwards.
I saw a lakebed of sage that wasn't too wise.
I saw a huge mountain of trees that were dyin'.
I saw a large lake that was saved from the masses.
I saw some young braves who were riding their skateboards.
I watched the storm over the Palisades building.
And it was a very hard rain.
Just not able to catch me in my new Red Rocket.

Pedal to the metal for a ways, then stop and take a photograph.

Two is better.

Back north I fly with my pipeful of Blue Dream.
Fish tacos? Damn. Closed. I'm really hungry for some grub.
Nothing doing on the pass, TPR's shut.
Sad, but I gotta crash out on the QT at a trailhead.
Continuing at dawn, stifling a yawn.
Dance beneath the diamond sky for a wake-up.
Forget about yesterday, it's locked in, as you can see.
The jingle jangle morning goes swiftly
and home is sweet, but so are those memories.
It's why I take photographs, I suppose.
I'm feelin' pretty old lately,
but I haven't yet reached my peak.

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it once again

Keep it burnin', but no need to hurry about it.

Don't forget to leave the side door open, the gnome may still be out in the yard.


G'nite

Psychologists urge folks to be friends with those who swear a lot
People who swear too much have been stigmatized as being uneducated or missing crucial language skills. However, that assumption is starkly wrong.

We know that highly intelligent people tend to view the world and the things around them differently. Surprisingly, they also tend to be really proficient at hurling a creative swear word, says a new research. Contrary to the popular belief, it's not the less educated or dumb people who swear a lot.

Most of us tend to avoid those who swear a lot thinking that they do not possess enough words to express themselves properly, and are hence limited in thinking as well. Psychologists Kristin Joy of Marist College and Timothy Jay of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts believe it may just be the opposite, which they state in their study.

Their study shows that the skills to make up new swear words is very closely related to having high vocabulary and fluency. People with a high IQ tend to have both of these and are hence more adept at coming up with novel swear words.

"People who use taboo words understand their general expressive content as well as nuanced distinctions that must be drawn to use slurs appropriately," the researchers wrote. "The ability to make nuanced distinction indicates the presence of more rather than less linguistic knowledge."

Another reason that may encourage you to befriend people who swear a lot is that they may be more honest. This indication comes from a study that looked at thousands of Facebook status that used swear words and words for deception. It had substantial data to suggest that honest people tend to swear a lot.

Psychologists also mention that individuals who tend to swear a lot are more at ease while expressing themselves. Hence, also suggesting that they are more true to themselves than those who tend to mince their words or hold back entirely.

A series of crime case studies were also looked at to assess the same trait if honest people tend to swear a lot. Innocent suspects are more likely to curse than a guilty one who is denying accusations, and if you swear during a testimony, you are seen as more credible.

Thus, if your friends tend to swear some of the most creative of slurs, then they are likely to possess high intelligence and have an honest heart.
