Cold Brain = Slow Brain

Or does that only apply to reptiles?

So I've been doing a not-entirely-on-purpose experiment with my “garden” (a bunch of planters on the porch)… Because I'm pretty terrible at reliably watering or otherwise caring for the plants, I've been learning which plants are bullet proof and which aren't… Celery and strawberries for example appear to be unkillable, heh.

I don't really know where I'm going to be next summer. Part of me wants to go live on the West Coast, part of me thinks about PEI, Nova Scotia, and the rest of the maritimes, and part of me thinks about northern Ontario and Quebec. There are a lot of really beautiful and sustainable places to go.

I feel like when I comment on this, I'm either preaching to the choir, or talking to people who won't see it until it's far too late, but I think we could be within twenty years — maybe less, maybe more… but not much more — of a complete environmental collapse. I would be very, very shocked if within the next hundred years we don't see the world's population drop (without our “consent”) to ten percent of what it is now through a combination of megaplague and environmental changes that make much of the planet both unlivable and incapable of continuing to produce resources for humans.

That's a picture of the property that I own out in New Brunswick, assuming it hasn't been repossessed by the government due to my non-attendance of it. For those of you interested in properties like that, you can buy logged properties (so basically a property that's been clearcut, with a border of forest) for about $100 an acre in Canada… So that 50 acre property cost $5000.

Other than that, I've been asked to be on a gameshow where different groups of people are pitted against each other in various IQ-related tests. I want to do it, but at the same time, I'm terrified of looking stupid on TV. I don't mind looking weird on TV (been there, done that), but I definitely don't want to look dumb.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
