Creative philosophy Thu, Jul 01, 2021
I realized my philosophy when creating things is this: 
  1. Make it work.  It doesn't have to be pretty.  There's a lot of trial and error.  Keep trying things until something works.
  2. Make it good.  Clean it up.  Polish the rough edges.  Apply a fresh coat of paint.
  3. Make it right.  Use best practices.  Remember lessons learned.  Don't reinvent the wheel.
I should probably switch the order around, but it is what it is.

Snakebite deaths Thu, Jul 01, 2021
I heard this statistic the other day, and I still can't believe it:  Somewhere around 100,000 people die every year from snake bites.  That's easily more than any other animal on earth, if you ignore things that simply spread disease like mosquitoes and whatnot.  Snakes kill directly by biting and "envenoming".  People are scared of shark attacks and crocodiles.  But snakes kill orders of magnitude more people than pretty much everything else combined. #nature
