  4. I chatted with an Olympian earlier today (Tuesday). FWIW, I’d much rather converse with an Olympian than a Hollywood celebrity, and I got lucky today. Whilst shopping in my local Neighborhood Market (green-signed Walmart’s) earlier today (Tuesday), I spotted this nice and very athletic-looking woman. She was wearing tights and a form-fitting, long-sleeved shirt. As I got closer, I could see on the back of her top it said something about the Olympic Team. The print wasn’t real big, and I didn’t wanna stand right behind her attempting to make out what it said (I wasn’t wearing my reading glasses). She was the opposite of frail-looking, so I didn’t want to agitate her. I live less than a mile from the nation’s flagship Olympic Training Center (and less than 1.3 miles from the Olympic Committee’s Headquarters), so I figured she may actually be an Olympian, so I just asked her - as it turned-out, she was. She smiled at first, and then a slight frown when she informed me she was only an alternate. I asked for conformation that she wouldn’t compete unless the primary was unable to, and she confirmed that. But I added, “You still get to go to Rio in case you’re needed, right?” She acknowledged that with a smile, and I added that, that in itself would be quite an experience. She agreed. I asked her what her sport was, and she was a wrestler! Awesome! I was conversing with a no doubt, bad-ass, female Olympic wrestler! I wrestled in High School and a little in College, but was an infinite distance from becoming an Olympian. We talked a little about wrestling, then I made some comment about being sure she could wail on me with very little effort, and as she laughed I wound-up the conversation. Anyway, it was the highlight of my day. It doesn’t take much to amuse this ol’ codger.
  5. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - they love attack robots) has been working on a program designed to make the often complex operations of cyber warfare as simple and intuitive as child’s play. Called “Plan X,” the project’s immediate goal is a touch-screen control panel that allows users to execute cyber effects in a manner comparable to a video game.

  14. But, you'd be the Director of the project, so you'd have hordes of game developing minions at your 'disposal'. But, seriously, it's really cool that you're so happy with what you're doing now.
