So, to summarize, I'd like everyone to know that I do too know how to take a picture on a digital camera. I don't want to brag, but I have noticed how every digital camera in the world has a little button on the top that you press to take the picture. I'd got this worked out pretty well sometime in like 1978 when I first heard of the idea of taking pictures with anything more advanced than taping the newspaper photograph up to the window so I could trace over it on some paper.
As to why I'm in a state where I need to clarify this, that's the rest of this week's big entry. Also appearing this past week:
- First-Class Prize-Winning Thinking, inspired by a sign at the post office;
- A Clarification Of Intention, or what it is I'm doing on the Internet all night;
- The Big Novelty Act, something a little imagination-catching I found in The Encyclopedia of Vaudeville;
- Bookstore Numbers, or one number anyway, about the current state of bookstores;
- Some Autocomplete Joys of Life, which made me smile;
- And a referrer to my math blog, with the themed comics highlighted.
Trivia: Gemini 7 carried the greatest number of science experiments of any Gemini flight, with 20. Gemini 3 and 6 carried the fewest, three each. Source: Gemini: Steps To The Moon, David J Shayler.

PS: Making The End Of The World Quantitative, getting back to my Sleeping Bear Dunes-inspired word problem.
