    QotD: How do you deal with anger?  I think of Frank Herbert's Dune and replace the word "fear" with "anger". I'm not saying it works or anything but it makes me pause for a moment.  "Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I ...

    QotD: is there a TV show world in which you would want to live?  I can tell you that it ain’t Pleasantville. Provided there’s no racism in the area, it might be quite good to hang out with the Petries in New Rochelle on The Dick Van Dyke Show. But then I imagine wifi would suck at ...

    QotD: Can you do long division with a paper and a pencil? Yes. This is one of the things I have had to teach the most when I was tutoring kids in after school centers in LA and New Zealand.  Everyone uses calculators these days.  It's really kind of sad.  The holes kids get in t...
