"If you were there in a position of authority and watched Americans drop out of eighty-story buildings because these murderous tyrants went after innocent people,then you were determined to do anything that you could that was legal to prevent that from happening again."

Brendan and I decided to order Thai food last night and faced an all-too familiar problem: remembering which curry is which. With colorful names that may or may not reflect their actual appearance and similar ingredients that aren’t usually listed, selecting a curry can be a harrowing decent into the darkest depths of indecision.
It was time to settle the issue once and for all. We ordered all five standard Thai curries so they could be examined and sampled as a complete set, and challenged ourselves to build a web site with our notes in exactly one hour (cementing the memory and providing future reference should that memory fade). This is that web site:

In the enigmatic Canon 1 a 2 from J. S. Bach’s “Musical Offering” (1747) (also known as “crab canon” or “canon cancrizans”), the manuscript shows a single score, whose beginning joins with the end. This space is topologically equivalent to a bundle of the line segment over the circle, known as a Möbius strip. The simultaneous performance of the deeply related forward and backward paths gives appearance to two voices, whose symmetry determines a reversible evolution. A musical universe is built and then is “unplayed” back into silence.

6000 mousetraps...8000 ping pong balls
Juan comes up to the Mexican border on his bicycle. He's got two large bags over his shoulders.
The guard stops him and says, “What's in the bags?”
“Sand,” answers Juan.
The guard says, “We'll just see about that! Get off the bike.”
The guard takes the bags and rips them apart; he empties them out and finds nothing in them but sand. He detains Juan overnight and has the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags.
The guard releases Juan, puts the sand into new bags, hefts them onto the man's shoulders, and lets him cross the border.
A week later, the same thing happens. The guard asks, “What have you got?”
“Sand,” says Juan.
The guard does his thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to Juan, who crosses the border on his bicycle.
This sequence of events if repeated every week for three years. Finally, Juan doesn't show up one day and the guard meets him in a cantina in Mexico.
“Hey, Buddy,” says the guard, “I know you are smuggling something. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about. I can't sleep. Just between you and me, what are you smuggling?”
Juan sips his Corona and says, “Bicycles.”

You've outdone yourself, Hanan.

thanks for noticing.
i think there are very few readers left...
Posted by: Hanan at Jun 1, 2009 10:18:18 AM
I doubt that.

i used to have about 20,000 hits a day, and many links from other blogs. Now the count is down less than half that, and very sporadic linkage

hang in there....are you still trying to come up with a new design?
Posted by: dave at Jun 1, 2009 2:02:04 PM
I'm still reading you, though it took me a while to work out where your posts were. :)
Posted by: Mike at Jun 1, 2009 2:10:15 PM
love it this way.
Posted by: lorraine at Jun 1, 2009 3:13:17 PM
Yeah, I still check daily. But I do wonder why you chose to do it this way and not individual posts? It can't take that much more time.
Regardless, I'll still keep stopping by.
Posted by: Jon at Jun 1, 2009 3:25:31 PM
i guess it's just something else to do....
Posted by: Hanan at Jun 1, 2009 9:33:31 PM
Yes, there are readers and like some of the others it took me a few times of wandering to figure out how you were posting and if this is the way you want to do it, that's cool. I stop by every few days to see what's new, as I'm sure your loyal followers still do. You keep posting, I'll keep reading.

from the very first time when i posted it that way (when i hinted about the coming baby), i mentioned "more inside", so it's not that it was a rebus or a puzzle.
the main reason for the switch actually is because 'typepad' changed their blogging software ('upgraded' it), and i can't figure out how to use it. i guess i could try to learn, but right now my mind is elsewhere, and i can't struggle with it.
i still like to find stuff & post it, and as a matter of fact this way in the comments is faster, and i don't have to 'compose' anything, just list the link.
oh well, again...
