Sorry, Grim Reaper, it’s been years since I had a performance review. My job now is to enjoy my second childhood even more than I enjoyed the first one. And I’m the only judge of that.

Challenges

As some of you know, I’m a great believer in optimizing stress.

But the challenges I choose are a lot less physically risky!

The quality of our lives depends on how we focus our energy and our attention.

What’s the best use of your time?

Dogs Rock!

Young Americans are less likely to be homeowners, car owners or parents than their predecessors, but
they do lead in one category: Pets.

Three-fourths of Americans in their 30s have dogs, while 51 percent have cats, according to a survey released by research firm Mintel. That compares to 50 percent of the overall population with dogs, and 35 percent with cats.

The findings come at a time when millennials, roughly defined as the generation born between 1980 and 2000, are half as likely to be married or living with a partner than they were 50 years ago. They are also delaying parenthood and demanding flexible work arrangements — all of which, researchers say, has translated to higher rates of pet ownership.
Millennials are picking pets over people

They agree with Sakura, dogs rock!

This post reminds me of Montana. She was only five when she died, but in those few years she had more “tail wags” than a lot of people have in a lifetime.

Another Promo

Most drones aren’t particularly scary. Aside from maybe gashing you open if they crash into you, there’s not much harm they can do. Until you add a pair of articulated arms with claws on the end, which turns drones into some kind of giant cyborg eagle ready to snatch babies and the elderly right off their feet.
….

The arms … allow the drone to perch on precarious areas that would otherwise be difficult for it to land on, or move around patio furniture, as demonstrated in this video that tries to convince us this thing is designed to help mankind, not assist in wiping us out.
Gizmodo

Rummuser didn’t like the bear-testing promo, so I’m curious to see if he thinks this video is any better. Except for the scary claws I don’t think the drone itself is that interesting, but I love the Gizmodo commentary. I’m still chuckling.

False Assumptions

Sometimes false assumptions can get us into DEEP trouble!
