Where I don't care what others think


October 17th, 2007 Posted in Life

At one I thought I was done, so I shut down my laptop and sat waiting for Vista to shutdown. It can take quiet some time so I just sat there, enjoying the peace and quiet of nothingness, something I don’t get very often around here. I starred at some trees, thinking about how they catch the wind. It came to me that trees themselves catch little wind, yes there bark does catch some of a passing breeze helping them move, but most of the wind is caught by the leaves. Any forces the leaves cannot handle internally by rotating slightly or shaking are transfered onto the branch. One leaf would have a very hard time making a bow flex, but the summation of many leaves have a very high potential.

I also spent a great deal of time debating what I should do for lunch, should I eat at commons or should I quest to the Union? Both will serve food that will nutritionally provide similar value to me, but each venue is very different, and I was in a thinking mood. Commons is essentially free, meaning that its already been paid for. The Union on the other hand is not free, and has an average cost of $6.00 per meal. Eating in the Union allows me to work on my laptop while I consume their food, eating at Commons allows me to watch everyone else get their food while I sit alone at one of the counter tops. For lunch at Commons I would probably make a sandwich and possibly some soup (only if its good). At the Union I have 2 options, Chicken Tenders or a Grinder. Overall I would rate the Union food as better, but the unbeatable price of Commons presents a very compelling argument. Yes, in any given day $6 might not be very much, but $6 * 5 days a week = $30, which would grow > $100 a month. Clearly I don’t eat there everyday a week, nor would I ever like the idea, but evaluting logic at its limits can provide strong insight.

What did I choose? Silence. That was my decision. My ears felt very comfortable, taking a reprieve from the noise they are constantly exposed to. There is no one talking to me, no background noise, no nothing; and I’m enjoying it.

In other matters, the previous weekend will be discussed at a later date and time, at which, I’m not sure where I’m going with this. Grr for loosing focus. I also am researching twitter, more to come soon.

Have a pleasant afternoon.

That is all.
