Full Stop

You can’t beat it can you? Found myself saying this morning: “My life is now too short to keep pissing in the wind.”

My father, the sailor and ever so practical, will approve. As will any logistics expert. As will Looney and Conrad, the engineers.

There is no rush, guys and guyesses. Take it easy.

  1. I watch Scrappy defy that logic just this morning. Leave it to a terrier. Of course, time means nothing to him. He has all of it or none of it and it simply doesn’t matter. If he ever decides to do an online course in living the good life, I’ll be sure to announce it. 😉

  2. Don’t tug on Superman’s cape and don’t take the mask off the old Lone Ranger, either. Some things will always be truths.

    Special thanks to Jim Croce for this wisdom, U.

  3. The engineer in me says that you need to consider the velocity, specific gravity, and mean free molecular path length of the wind (laminar or turbulent flow). Then taking into account the momentum and viscosity of the liquid, along with the surface tension, we can compute a velocity threshold for the wind which would permit urination without a sign reversal in the horizontal component of the time derivative of the fluid position.

    But the philosophical side says that it cannot be finally determined that our life wasn’t all about pissing into the wind until it is over.

    • This just reminded me that a request for research proposals from the US Government had just been circulated in my department for fundamental scientific and engineering research. I really think it is about time that we spend $100 million to settle once and for all the feasible limits of pissing into wind.
