“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”


"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

I have issues

Coworker last night asks if I can sharpen a knife for him.

"Sure."

Then, he hands it to me.

"Nope. I refuse." While he was trying to figure out where I was coming from, I was examining the "knife" in the loosest sense of the word, which wouldn't even pass muster as truck stop store quality.

"I can't do anything with this but throw it away. I'll bring you in a decent knife tomorrow."

Because it's not like I don't have any spares.

As Tam (https://booksbikesboomsticks.blogspot.com/2020/02/i-just-dont-get-it.html) understandably has comments blocked, two things to say:

#1 - Yes, it actually was a CRKT I passed on to a new home. Given I have a handful I was issued, and don't generally use except when traveling and I don't want to lose an Emerson.

#2 - There might have been a manly squeal when I got a link from a famous blogger. Judge all you want.
