A quote that springs to mind today, from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams: 💬

Dishwashers washed tedious dishes for you, thus saving you the bother of washing them yourself, video recorders watched tedious television for you, thus saving you the bother of looking at it yourself.

Been a while since I posted a quote. Here’s a very true one from Heinlein’s very quotable Time Enough for Love. 💬

The phrase ‘we (I) (you) simply must —’ designates something that need not be done. ‘That goes without saying’ is a red warning. ‘Of course’ means you had better check it yourself. These small-change cliches and others like them, when read correctly, are reliable channel markers.

We didn’t sleep well last night, so this advice from Heinlein’s Time Enough for Love seems appropriate: 💬

Avoid making irrevocable decisions while tired or hungry. N.B.: Circumstances can force your hand. So think ahead!

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 3 is “astonish“. It’s Election Day in the US, so if you haven’t already voted, do so today! Let’s astonish the world with the voter turnout. (Photo of Heinlein’s Time Enough for Love.) 📷💬🇺🇸🗳 #mbnov
