Ah...the cogitating crocs.  I blame those nature films for this "they'll just eat anything, rip tear, small brains, all instinct, no reflection" myth.  Truth is, the people with the video cameras sit down beforehand with the crocs and explain, "Yes, well, I know you like to discuss economics with your victims prior to eating them.  And yes, your sauces and dips are very nice.  But...the public wants gnashing.  Teeth.  Ripping and tearing.  Can you do that?  Oh, btw, that herd of zebras over there...are for you...if you know what I mean."

Unfortunately I have come to an agreement with other people chez rg that we will be going through an abstinence regime in re: screens and output thereof.  To whit: part 2 will be arriving sometime around midwinter.

Also, those aliens were back last night, they explained...well....it's all very complicated.

In the meantime, for your very good self:

Cough cough!  I don't know how that happened.

On a more serious note, here's the second movement--the Lento--from the Shostakovich mentioned above:



Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
