He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

That's about right. Except we are looking to dance together. Asked my boss "what is the difference between VR and MxR?" "VR is the avatars dancing based on keyboard input. MxR is the avatars' movements are controlled by a bunch of IMUs. And You can actually feel my hand via your tactile sensor." There was a collective "ewwww". But it was a good answer.

Damn, Girly, don't you ever just relax? You seem like you never just chill, brother.


I am currently trying to perfect my guitar work on "Sultans of Swing" because Mark Knopfler is a God. I'm a metal head but Mark is amazing. Love trying to play his licks...I swear he has 25 fingers. Big Grin

RE: What are you doing right now?
We managed to find both hazelnuts and black walnuts during our afternoon foraging. We also snatched a shitload of small, sour apples. They're probably not wild, not originally anyway, but we found the trees near an old unused logging trail and some long abandoned, crumbling cabins. They'll probably make good jelly combined with some cranberries my girlfriend froze and is looking for something to do with.

I also showed my son how to find grubs in bark and rotting wood. He wasn't too keen on trying one though, even though I told him they're kind of like nutty shrimp... He hasn't tried shrimp, though, so it was probably a bad comparison.

So right now I'm preparing the day's catch, so to speak, minus the grubs Tongue

I am being treated for anhedonia and psychomotor retardation. End state is catatonic. Can't chill much more than that brotherman. Thumbsup

Sour apples make the best pies... or just baked apples. (Cheat and stick one in the micro to test the flavor. Add some sugar and cinnamon as needed.)

How big are the grubs? Maybe you can pass them off as puffed rice, if you cook 'em right. If you have the means, cooking them is better, as it will kill any weird stuff living in them.

Found quite a few different types. Some indeed about the size of rice grains, others like jumbo shrimp. Nothing like the monsters I've seen at street vendors in Eastern Asia. I wouldn't eat them raw unless I was in a real bad situation Tongue. Some insects I'll eat raw if they're easy to clean. With crickets, for example, if you just hold them with their belly facing up, grab their head, and pull, it comes off with the innards attached nice and easy along with any brain or intestinal parasites they might have.
