We've commented before how different our perspectives are with first impressions on anything like a restaurant, art, commercial products, etc.  Bryant's quick to criticize and compare for an objective or realistic viewpoint, while I focus on what good I can find.  I came across a Dear Abby post that where the G.B. Stern quote really struck me.

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The object of life is not to be "happy." The object of life is to make society a better place in which to live. Every one of us has something to offer. In the words of G.B. Stern: "Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society. The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute."

We've been a number of times before, but now we're officially members of SkyKart. For some reason I can't remember the name right and I keep calling it "sidekart" or some mutilation of it that really bugs B. Had some good runs in and B made one qualifyer lap, where his time was faster than a threshold. He needs to get some more of those times in and he'll qulify for a turbo kart! In the meantime, my improvements are slowing cinching by only tenths of seconds, but at least he isn't lapping me anymore.

Gamble for your bowls!

If you eat out, you're surely to come across some bad food experiences at some point. Would you rather...

A. Eat cooked rotten food with accompanying buzzing flies


B. Eat raw defrosted-previously-frozen seafood lukewarm bland pasta

These situations happened separately, and luckily we didn't get sick. The ensuing discussion is which we'd rather, B said option A and I said option B (because you can't smell it).

A friend insists on C, going hungry. What would you do?
