You’re Not Thinking Fourth Dimensionally

If nothing else convinces you that “time” is a man-made, artificial construction meant to keep people from twiddling their thumbs and staring up at the sun, it should be today. Today is February 29th, which, according to our Gregorian calender, is a Leap Day. What’s a Leap Day? Well, our 24-hour day, 365-day a year […]

Nerd Link!—BookletCreator “BookletCreator – is a free online tool that allows to create a booklet from a PDF document. It reorders pages so that after printing and folding the pages you get a small book.” I’m saving this more for myself than for your readers. So I’m selfish. Deal
