Haha!  See, there is an important voice that is missing here now - what would ppauper be saying? 

In addition to being very accomplished in computational fluid dynamics (that CFD, not the political one), he also really dug in to the legal side of things from time to time. Strange and interesting character (or consortium, as it were).

I have to write a paper tonight, but maybe more Con Law tomorrow. Will this Trump case go to the Supreme Court? Stay tuned!

I don’t do bosons, but I recently doubled my vitamin D-3 dosage to 2,000 IUs per day. Collector would approve! Kat probably not so much.
That sounds good.  Funny little story: last month I got a bit experimental and started taking 10,000 IUs of D-3 a day. Plus a bunch of other stuff, including B6.

Yes, that was a strange couple of weeks last month, dosing up like that did affect sleep, dreams, energy, and mood strongly. If you are going to play with your own chemistry set, do careful homework!

However, adjusted course and feel great - plus learning about vitamins and minerals is relevant for a lasting veg/vegan conversion too.

So now, to sleep perchance to dream!

B6 is supposed to help with dream recall. I do find that to be the case. And I dreamt that it was 5:57am this morning, woke up to find it was 5:57am.

Not only the recall - but also the vividness of the dreams - super high definition visuals and sound. Very interesting.  That aspect has continued, but without the speedy overdrive feel.  

I generally would not share dreams because who know what you guys would see in them (haha!), but I will say that these days I am having a recurring dream of attending a conference in a big hotel.  A different hotel each time, as shown by blue decor, red decor, gold decor, hotel logos, but always very nice surroundings and I am visiting the lunch buffet.  There are long tables with food of all kinds, and I am walking past salads, bread baskets, entrees in long silver pans, and rows of desserts.  The imagination and realism are quite amazing.

You have been to a few good conferences in your time and have probably enjoyed those lunch buffets too! 

What does it mean? Happy to hear ideas, but my own interpretation would be a quote from someone - I will look up who said it, but something like:

"Life is a buffet and most fools are starving to death."   Well, not me - I have my plate and am ready to go! : D

I am departing for a celebratory vacation. Do not worry, I have not gone down the rabbit hole of far-right conspiracy theories! Just heading for the mountains to watch things from a distance. 

Be well, enjoy true Free Speech if you know where it lives, and long live both Democritus & Democratia.
