Think – Today: Would Famous 20th Century Scientist, Like Einstein, Been More Productive If They Had Google?

by Anura Guruge


alberteinYou have to admit it is one heck of thing to think about? Seeing a photo of people using the old card index system in a library got me thinking about this. Would make a great high school debate proposition. So what do YOU think?

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Celibacy vs. chastity” — Yes, most people think that these two words refer to the same thing, i.e., abstinence from sex. That is, however, not the case. Per the Catholic Church, an authority on such matters for millennia, the correct word for describing somebody who is not having sex is ‘continence’. Celibacy refers to the state of being unmarried (or unattached). Chasity, on the other hand, deals with sexual ‘purity’ — let’s call that ‘fidelity’. You can be married, have sex with your partner and be chaste. Hence the belt to keep you pure. Aren’t you glad you know know. {SMILE}

My Temporary Sony a6000 Arrives From ‘Cardinal Camera’ With A Lollipop Inside!

by Anura Guruge

Click these images to ENLARGE.

This was so cute.
Also had a camera bag thrown in.

Appears to be brand new.
Looked immaculate and I had to set date/time.

Plus, first picture was DSC00001.

So I am happy.

I can’t stop smiling.

This was a STEAL!

This is what it is being sold on Amazon right now.

I got it for $699!

Refer to this post.

Already customized to my liking and needs.

I don’t like neck straps. I am into wrist straps ($7.99).

Also got a leather half-body for protection and added grip ($15.99).

Clip on ‘other side’ allows me to clip on a lanyard-type strap if I need to carry it around my neck.

See below.

But this a6000 is but the precursor to a Sony a6500 — which will be my main camera.

Here is the link to the New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlets Website.

All the Liquor stores will NOT have it on ‘Day One’ — i.e., tomorrow, Thursday, November 17, 2016.

Even medium size stores like Wolfeboro will NOT get it till a few days later. I checked. {SMILE}

Only the BIG stores, in the BIG cities get it on THE Thursday. I know. So, if you go to Concord, Portsmouth, Manchester, Nashua, Keene etc. YOU should be fine. I am going to Concord. I can pick you up a few if you like. {SMILE}
