..the alarm clock. Heavens! What evil genius brought together those two enemies of the idle—clocks and alarms—into one unit?

You know I believe it, ‘cause you made me believe it.


nothing burns as bright as illusion
the heart wants to believe

Redox signalling molecules

slated in as so at 8:29 pm

It’s more a replenishment than a supplement. It’s beyond natural, it’s Native. E.g. ginseng can be all-natural, but your body does not make ginseng. Your body makes these redox signaling molecules, so Asea is native to your body. As a result, there is zero toxicity— even water cannot claim that. It is not nutrition nor hydration, yet it provides what your body needs to make and keep itself healthy.

Redox signaling is the communication and activation that our cells need to do what they’re supposed to do: heal themselves.

It’s not nutrition, not hydration, not a drug; all those things may be good and important for the body (sans the drugs!!), however they are not native to the body. Redox signaling molecules are native; our cells produce them, we absolutely need them, and until they figured out how to stabilize these molecules (outside a live body) there was no real way to replenish our own body’s supply.

It’s very different from what we’re all used to; new field of science, minimal frame of reference for most people; that’s why it’s my job to connect people to the resources and provide exposure, education, and guidance.

This site isn’t a repository for that; ping me and we can have a human conversation about it. Those can be really good :)

When guests are arriving soon for a party/gathering at my parents’ house, I can always mark it by the music that Dad will have turned on in the living room. It used to always be George Winston, which made me think of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now he nearly always turns on Josh Ritter, which I don’t associate so much with Thanksgiving/Christmas as I do with a hundred other things. They still add up to home.

Recurring comments when people visit my desk at work

slated in as so at 7:04 pm

Approximately one out of every five visitors (a lot) to my cube will ask/say the following:


Are you comfortable like that? / If I tried to do that, I’d break something. / Where are your shoes? / How do you do that?


Where’s your computer? / How can you see that? / Can you see that?

Desktop wallpaper brightness

slated in as so at 5:48 pm

My eyes have been particularly strained this past week;

I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in front of my computer screens at odd hours, and of course this is stressful on my eyes. What I hadn’t really thought about, though, was that about a week ago I had also changed my desktop wallpaper backgrounds to images of very bright rainbow colors across..

When your eyes look like you feel, or worse

slated in as so at 6:27 pm

If you’ve been up really late, watching too much television/computer screen, or crying buckets, you’re left with unhappy-looking evidence on your face, generally in form of puffy/squinty/bruised eyes.
And then everyone asks you why and it’s rarely a cheerful/useful exchange, so usually preferably avoided, neh?

To alleviate the physical/aesthetic symptoms, the first and main thing to do is the cover the area around your eyes (specifically right beneath — the “bag” area) with vaseline or some other intensive cream lotion..

the lyrics in Matt Nathanson’s song, Weight of It All, are pretty and nice to sing along to… but it’s a fallacied metaphor:

Show me where the sun comes through the sky,
I’ll show you where the rain gets in

Pretty. but wrong.

Firefox bookmarks toolbar problem

slated in as so at 11:55 pm

Have been suffering an issue with Firefox for the past few months… involved the bookmarks folder being thoroughly nonuseable — nothing could be added to it whatsoever.. Couldn’t add or move links/bookmarks anywhere except under the regular bookmarks folder. Made me very unhappy since I needed the Blinklist bookmarklet, among other things.
