@achewood My bicycle is parked in the living room. A tub of tartar sauce sits open on the counter. Truly, the evidence of a wife being away too long.

Ooo, I vote for the historical data, although I don't know how that works as a career move.  The mapping app sounds like a better idea from that perspective and making stuff accessible to the public is a noble goal. But surely you could do a little history as a side project?

Wow, I'm not sure I'd call this a low moment, because this may be the only time in your life that you have a boss who's looking out for you to this extent. Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything. Take this opportunity and make the most of it.

When I read that I had like 50 milliseconds of panic - only exactly as long as it took to get to the second sentence. It's inexplicable that anyone could read the whole post, even before the edit, and be unclear what it meant. It makes me despair as a writer - god knows how few people actually understand my carefully composed articles.

It's probably also an effect of the context though - not only is Facebook a place on the internet that is not peopled by the cream of the crop, also, it feels to me like there's a whole lot of announcements of dead dogs there. But still, once you read the whole thing, WTF.

But yeah, the "it's like" would help. Although Ash has a point, too.

Paul is correct except I would edit that to say that two generations ago you would have been able to support a family and live in New York City, which is probably even more shocking.

Well, now that you mention it, his highs are extraordinarily high.

Now, David Bowie and Queen, that would be a hard question, but I'd have to go with Queen.

I can't think of a single thing that seems similar to me about Springsteen and Neil Young.

That's what makes this game so interesting. It's all about the tough choices.

I dunno, man, to me that one is not a tough choice. Sure, I don't love all of Bowie, but some of it is basically essential to civilization. Whereas if I never heard another note of Neil Young for the rest of eternity that would be just dandy.

The Who is the right answer to all of those questions.

This morning the deer was in my front yard instead of the neighbor's, so possibly eating MY garden. So I am now vigorously anti-seeing-deer.

I saw a deer in the neighbor's backyard without even having to leave the house, much less sleep in a pickup in the woods. I like that better.
