I've been writing online for thirty years. One of these days I might actually get good at it.

    Falling behind

    I'm getting to the point where just keeping up is beyond my dwindling capacities. I'm not sure what's going on, but I suspect I'm not going to like it when I find out.

    Anyway, I apologize for having been such a lousy correspondent this year.

    Having gone wandering off somewhere

    Of late, I seem to have been overtaken by events: my health has taken a turn for the worst, I wrecked my car, and the guy they hired to help me out at work has moved away. (Another guy has drawn the short straw.) I'm still alive, but it's not something I much feel like bragging about.

    A night at the beer garden

    I mean, I'm not allowed beer anymore, at least not until I get off some of these damnable medications, but our little table had massive fun discussing Jenga, photography, classic and modern weaponry, beer (of course) -- and ponies. Apparently they'd read my stuff. Who knew?

    Back in the Real World

    I think I would rather spend two weeks in the Everfree, trying to avoid everything that can kill me, and in the Everfree I assume everything can kill me, than one more minute in a hospital room.

    That said, their definition of "on the mend" doesn't quite coincide with mine.

Nomenclatural query · 4:48pm Jun 26th, 2012

One phrase that occurs entirely too often in human writings - because there's entirely too much of it in real life - is "man's inhumanity to man." It may be that the comparable concept does not exist in Equestria, though any number of stories tagged "grimdark" might suggest otherwise - but assuming that it does exist, how would you phrase it? Ponies clearly have their own ethics and morals, but they know nothing of "inhumane" and variations thereupon.
