Amazon Offering $25 Gift Card For Doing A 3D-Scan Of Your Body.

$25 for a 3D scan of my body?

I think I am offended. I would have been happier if Amazon didn’t offer ANYTHING other than a cup or tea and a candy (like when you give blood).

As a committed and long-term AMZN investor I should, really, applaud Amazon’s apparent frugality. But, this makes Amazon look cheap and tawdry.

I thought about it. I realized that they wouldn’t have 3D scanning facility all over the place. And I was right on that. Just in New York City. Well I doubt whether I will track all the way down to NYC for this. But, if I were in NYC …

Does appear, alas, that it is very much a one-way deal, in the direction of Amazon.

I don’t think they give you access to your scan. I gather they (like Trump) makes you sign a NDA.

But, here is something that crossed my mind. Wouldn’t it be nice if they told you if they saw something untoward inside you. I guess they don’t. That would complicate matters too much.

Just wanted to share this with you.

Amtrak Came To Be This Day 46 Years Ago — May 1, 1971.

by Anura Guruge


Taken by me, in August 2016, in Mystic, CT, from the water, with a rented Nikon D500. Attribution will be enforced.



THIS is a MUST Watch!


For all its faults and shortcomings it is ALL we have!

We have taken Amtrak a fair number of times to New York City and it isn’t that bad. The furthest I have been in Philadelphia to Boston.

Just wish they were FASTER!

It was 47°F at 3:10pm Monday, Feb. 1, 2016
when I started taking these pictures.
That is a tad warm for us this time of year.
So the theme for the day was
‘warm weather’ in February.
