Very nicely done. At first blush, though, I question the basic assumption behind this work. Large, heavy machines are very vulnerable, ...

For such a simple piece, this drawing demonstrates an astonishing degree of mastery. Every stroke tells a tale. Nothing could be added ...

Journal History

There is today a very widespread idiom, or slang construct, in which one says, "I'm like ...," or "He's like ...,"  followed by a more or less theatrical reenactment of one's own, or someone else's response to some information or event.   This instead of saying, "I said X," or, "I thought X,"  "I was surprised,"  etc.

Twenty or thirty years ago, such expressions were seldom heard, and forty or more years ago, they were never heard at all.   Since I perceive it as something novel and abnormal, and a loss of expressiveness in ordinary speech, and especially writing,  I am constantly and severely annoyed by it.

For a long time I've wondered how on Earth people got started saying such things.   I guessed it might have been promulgated by some very popular movie star or other entertainer, but who it might have been, I couldn't guess.

Now I'm wondering whether it could have been Robin Williams.    By now I've had an opportunity to hear some extended examples of his speech.   Instead of just engaging in ordinary conversation, he constantly interrupts himself with little skits, parodies, impressions etc.   These outbursts are highly entertaining, and nobody else I know of does them nearly so well.   Perhaps they inspired imitation?

Do you think that this illustration about procrastination is correct? :D

LOL this late reply is not an instance of procrastination. Really.  I just don't often read my front page, I usually go straight to the Messages menu.

I don't understand the illustration, maybe because part of it is cut off.

The mechanism of procrastination in my case is usually the "But first --" ploy.   I set out to do what I know is important, but first there is this other little thing, which ends up taking all the time I have to spare that day.    It may go several levels deep, thus:      X1 butfirst(X2 butfirst(X3 butfirst(X4 butfirst( ... ))))
