From Mental Floss:
I can’t begin to imagine how hard it would be to leave my family for months at a time, especially if my destination were Iraq or Afghanistan. And I don’t know how I could deal with my wife being deployed overseas. These reunion videos—for me, at least—shed a tiny beam of light on how emotionally draining being a military family can be. They’ll also make you want a dog. To commemorate Veterans Day, here are some overjoyed dogs greeting returning soldiers.

Letters of Notes has a letter written by Kurt Vonnegut to his father after getting out of the POW camp. (Click the link to read the rest) Too bad he never wrote a book about his experience as a Prisoner of War.
So, I got caught up reading Atlas Shrugged and suddenly it all made sense. I needed to go Galt to save the internets and the world. Then I remembered that Objectivism is dried out and used to fertilize crops in third world countries….
Oh, I can’t lie to you. I caught a cold (or the swine flu. Try telling the difference between symptoms if you’re a hypochrondriac) and when I got back to work yesterday, our internet connection was dead.
So I’m back amongst the tcp/ip connections now and blogging will resume at some point. Thanks for the well wishes and.. PRAYERS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO THE DAILY ATHEISM?
Was kind of nice being unplugged from the matrix for a little while though…
