We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Viacom's case against YouTube. Sounds compelling to me. If stuff isn't public domain, it's private. But the way stuff moves around these internets, it can be hard to tell.
How to juggle three balls. This is great. Very clear instruction. Get off the dang computer, find some tennis balls, and teach the whole family to juggle. Update: The Dylanologist would prefer to juggle oranges, heads of lettuce, eggs, or 20 year-old blond Swedish nannies. On the other hand, Roger says:
Tennis balls make lousy juggling balls. Go to the sporting goods store and buy three lacrosse balls. Get two orange and one white. You can use the white one to see how far along in any progression you are, and eventually you can use it to do unusual throws. Tennis balls don't weigh enough and bounce out of your hands. A lacrosse ball is heavy and sits right in there. It bounces, but not like a superball.
Also, magic/joke/book stores sell little square beanbags for juggling. They are great for learning, as they do not roll or bounce away when you drop them. Lacrosse balls at the beach in the sand are the ne plus ultra schizzle, though.
I taught myself to juggle a few years back. I stood at the kitchen counter while learning, as I got tired of bending over and picking the bean bags up off of the floor. Once I could juggle with two bean bags, adding the third one was not that hard.
Also Bird Dog, it is impossible to juggle with ones hands in ones pockets. /s
