Name origins often can reveal what forebears used to do or where they lived. Miller, Mueller means a miller of grain. Ford likely lived near a river crossing, etc.
Looking at the name Weisselberg and considering its origins - it means essentially, 'weasel-town' in German - it takes some kind of anti-genius to hire someone with that name as an accountant.

plooking

Shagging, f@#king.
As used in some of Frank Zappa's music

I was plooking all night long.
Ah, you plooked me so hard.

You've heard of those Garfield telephones that have been washing up on French shores for the past 30 years? Well, I've theory that over the next 100-150 years folks will offer to purchase these large sunken shipping containers (contents unknown) from the conglomerate so they can charter some submersible drone to crack open the treasure chest.

As I was crossing the mall parking lot, earlier, two teens walked by.
One said "Nice mustache, man!"
So, I kicked him in the balls.




O.K., so I didn't kick him....but, I did think about it!

Hands out of time...

So I've been seeing a girl jogging for years on one of my bike routes. I started waving to her (most people biking and jogging wave to each other)...and for years she never waved back....boy, stuck up, I thought.

Then a couple years ago she waved at me and I was surprised, and we've been waving at each other every time now for a couple of years since...she's finally with the program(: (She's dedicated too, I see her year round :) ).

Well this morning she was jogging towards me in the breakdown lane and instead of waving I slapped her the high five and the impact of our hands hitting was significant cuz we were both at speed moving towards each other.

And then I was thinking...

Because we were both moving, time was progressing differently for us relative to our homes, or anything else "stationary," and we were also moving torwards each other so our relative speed was cumulative.

Therefore, though miniscule, time was moving differently for us relative to each other, (according to Einstein at least).

But in the moment of impact, our hand speeds equalized, our hands matched speeds and matched time, (although time was still moving differently for the rest of our bodies).

So was that considerable impact felt related to inertia related to gravity as well? Is that why we felt the "pull" of impact as our hands slowed to match each other's relative time, (relative speed)?

Random things to think about while riding your bicycle :)
