People tell me when I give a book as a gift I'm supposed to write a little blurb inside. Fuck that, what if they want to sell it and my scribbles knocked half the value off? They'd be pissed at me. Here, I got you this first edition Gutenberg Bible, let me just scribble a little note in here first.

Not being a skier and never having lived where there's feets and feets of snowpack, I'd never heard of tree wells, nor how dangerous they are.

I've seen the story poles to measure the depth of the snow around Mt Rainier, they're taller than a damn telephone pole.

When I got back into skiing I was surprised that glade skiing, skiing through the trees, has become an approved activity. They used to rip our tickets for that.

Today I learned about the Omni Processor.

It takes human waste and produces electricity, clean drinking water (that passes FDA WHO standards), and money.

How The Omni Processor Works <---Good infographic. Better/quicker than the Wiki link above.

Today I learned there is a growing conspiracy theory around vote fraud in the Clinton campaign.

Gotta love her handle "Sane Progressive." I have no idea about her allegations, but she goes right past passionate and into nuts territory pretty quickly.
