Post-weekend trivia

Joke of the day: “I don’t mean to brag, but I finished my 14-day diet food supply in 9 hours and 20 minutes.”

I may be getting dumber. My consecutive Wordle results the last few days are 2/6, 3/6, 4/6 and 5/6. Ugly trend.

More on crypto; this time Bitcoin. We’re a cult, absolutely.

Thanks to McSweeney’s for making it clear that we probably don’t want smart toilets. Flush that idea.

I’m airfare-shopping a lot lately, and one thing is certain – airfares have gone up, way up. My unscientific estimate is that fares are up 30-50% relative to a year ago. I’ve looked at Southwest, United, American; inside the US and international. Our traveling life just got more expensive. Right now I’m looking to get to England in late October to catch the ship ride to Norway and the Northern Lights. Then maybe a side trip over to Scotland on the way back, mid-November. Now that I write this, a side trip to Scotland in mid-November doesn’t seem all that smart. I’ve played golf in Scotland in late May during frigid snowstorms. Maybe Scotland on the front end of that trip…

My go-to sites for international travel shopping are Momondo and business-class.com.
