"Error is the normal state of our knowledge, and is no disgrace."

I got around to doing my yoga today and I feel so much better. Need to do this more regularly.

Relational scope of the outing just serendipitously increased by +1. Lunch booking grows to double-digit pax.

Shopping-centering with the clan is quite a different experience. Dramatic shift in economies of scale.

My favourite:

AgriProtein is a British company that operates two fly farms in South Africa. Each farm contains 8.4 billion flies, which consume 276 tonnes of food waste and lay 340 million eggs each day. Those eggs (maggots) are dehydrated, flattened and used as animal feed.

I do admire how the little one wakes up every morning with such a will and a drive to live - to explore every possibility in life afforded to him. I could use a bit of that.

Current status: I'm awake because I'm done sleeping, I guess I'll find something interesting to occupy my time with 😂

Slightly distressed by how the habits that are best for you are the hardest to keep up. Two in particular for me - staying away from caffeine and doing my stretches.

Working through the quiet December period - Win: parking situation at the train station. Fail: lunching situation in the CBD.

Whaddya know, the Surface Go has a micro SD card reader. How nifty.

I made a quick trip down to the corner store to get some milk. I didn't take my phone with me. For 15 minutes I was offline. Such scandal, it was a little bit exciting.

T: I will shut down the government if I don't get a wall.
N: You can't get a wall.
T: You're stupid for not wanting border security.
N: We want border security but not with a wall
T: No Wall = No Border Security. I'll proudly shut down the government for the sake of border security.

It scares me:

1. that this level of reasoning is employed to make decisions on behalf of a nation.
2. that it has proven tactically effective at making things happen.

For all its creepiness, this is exactly what I was searching for, and big G came through for me.

Here’s the view from work today. It’s gloomy but still pretty rad 👌.

“Instead of looking upon discussion as a stumbling-block in the way of action, we think it as indispensable preliminary to any wise action at all.”

- Pericles, “Funeral Oration”, c. 431 BCE

These were being handed out at work today as part of the 🎄 festivities. Usually I’d sneer about it being a lie, but it pales in comparison to Santa 🎅.

At least this lie is tasty. ☺️
