The publishing industry is getting tougher: there will be bold!
The Fermi Paradox is, in essence an assumption (via for instance the Drake Equation) that, because our galaxy contains a large number of stars like our sun that are billions of years older than our sun, and that some of those stars have Earth-like planets, and that those planets, in turn, might give rise to intelligent life, then the galaxy should, by now be overrun by extraterrestrial intelligent life.

– Deep dude!
– Not too deep, or you’d be doing speleology.

Whenever you shampoo your hair, you’ve got the whole world in your hands…
I was thinking about a TV-show where a character was shaving and singing “He’s got the whole world in his hands.”
Apparently, he was also putting on the aftershave belonging to his girlfriend’s ex-husband.
I was thinking about this while in the shower and it hit me. Given his cocky behavior, the “he” in his song might have referred to he, himself.
I.e. “I’ve got the whole world in my hands…”
At that moment I was shampooing my hair and I realized that, indeed, I did have the whole world in my hands. At least as far as to the concept of you all being in my world. (Woahahaha).
Of course, when you think about the world, we’re all in your world. However, of course, I’m always in my world because I’m special! 😀
In Cannes, partying with Daniel Craig and Lindsay Lohan. Their faces are huge. He looks a bit old and she looks a bit over the top with her make-up, but hey! They are great drinking buddies!
“Cool,” I say, “that music sounds just like my alarm clock.”
“It’s your call,” Lindsay says.
“Fuck!” I say and wake up.
Modern apology: “I’m afraid that there is such a rich thesaurus now of things that I have said that have been one way or another, through what alchemy I do not know, somehow misconstrued that it would really take me too long to engage in a fully global itinerary of apology to all concerned.”

So, I’m on the phone and it starts vibrating worse than ever, and I’m like: WTF? No indications or “popups” or whatever.
Then when I’m done talking the phone vibrates again, this time accompanied by the patented “worst ringtone ever”:
This time when I check the phone it turns out the Samsung Zone Alarm is warning about “ice and snow” in Stockholm.
That’s great to know, but seriously… THAT RINGTONE?
I mean imagine, people in floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and storms hearing THAT RINGTONE? Can you sue for psychological damage?
Ok. Snow storms in Sweden are OK if you keep off the roads and you don’t have the bad luck to get hit by something like “Gudrun,” that may, in fact, bring you off the power grid for a couple of weeks (if you live in the more rural parts of Sweden…)
