Today looks angelic, The lines are on fire with people wanting to call you, and you'll be dogged with new opportunities coming seemingly from nowhere. You'll twitch with excitement as new business erupts and you crawl from phone to phone. You're an Old Master at dealing with a heavy load, even if cartoonishly, as you pour it on. But if you just leave them hanging, you'll be thought a heel, so smile as you scroll thru, and remember nothing's as big as it seems.

Today's GIFoscope was done on Magic Bus, the laptop my friend Nancy sent me a year and a half ago but turned on only this week, so the GIFs didn't clog my Linux-based desktop's (friend Andrew's old Spare) RAM.

Do you name your 'puters? I told Nancy I was naming this one Nancy unless she supplied another name, so Magic Bus (after the band, not the bus directly).

One year for a Linux machine to turn on! That's a premature birth, Robert. You normally have to wait a 18-month gestation period for the OS to fully develop. This is why they are so superior to the Windows PCs!

(An older brother who was a teen in the times of "Animal House" thought the single most time-period–representative line in the whole thing was [as he paraphrased it] 'Why does she have to interrupt me when I'm doing something _important_?!'.)

What blew my mind most about the Russian language is that the name of a city can change depending on its place in a sentence. In the case of Moscow, if it's the subject in a sentence it's Moskva but if it's the object it's Mosku.

In Russian the names of people even change depending on their grammatical place in the sentence. And there are no definite or indefinite articles, so you don't know if it's "a car" or "the car". What a wacky language!

Given that the Soviet State Capitalists claimed they'd the superior economic system, winning by out-spending was entirely apt. Despite their similar murderousnesses (as opposed to ours) that's why Bolshevism was preferable to Fascism, whose only real metric was military success, meaning that the only way to make them lose on their own terms was to kill a lot of them and destroy their stuff.
