I just had a bad cold, the worst since the before times. Here's a precise timeline:
- symptoms started 2 days after infection;
- I started to feel better 7 days after infection;
- symptoms are mostly gone 9 days after infection, i.e. they lasted 7 days.
I'm an idealist. This means I have a tendency to fall in love with my models because they work so well for predicting things in a simple and systematic fashion. Then, if I'm not careful, I may end up applying them beyond their domain of applicability with disastrous results. If you too are an idealist, it's good to keep it in mind and do reality checks with independent actors.
For example, don't make a big purchase without checking if others see any obvious problem with it.
This is why I never bought a pinball machine.

Selling physical artworks makes no sense if you compare it to the software industry or even to real estate investing where most profits come in the form of rent, not ownership transfer. Leasing artworks instead of selling them appears to be the logical solution but it's not very practical yet. I'm looking for ways to standardize this practice. One aspect would be to use a well-known, battle-tested lease contract similar to the well-known free software licenses (GPL, BSD, ...). Any pointers or suggestions? I want to end artist exploitation.

Candy cap #mushrooms in the neighborhood. The owner of the patch had no idea! They're very fragrant mushrooms once dried. Their smell is reminiscent of maple syrup. They go for about $1/g on eBay ($30/oz)!
