Excerpt from The Science of Breath
The Western student is apt to be somewhat confused in his ideas regarding the Yogis and their philosophy and practice.
Travelers to India have written great tales about the hordes of fakirs, mendicants and mountebanks who infest the great roads of India and the streets of its cities, and who impudently claim the title “Yogi.”
The Western student is scarcely to be blamed for thinking
My first Youtube Video.
Take off from Tullamarine International Airport Melbourne, flight to Brisbane on Virgin Australia flight DJ353 aboard Boeing 737-800, window seat 9F (just behind engine) .
Wet weather. Taken with Sony DSC-TX7 in 1080p MP4.
Sound is a bit distorted sorry but, hey, I film with what I got, no external mic. Melbourn suburbs visible off the wing tip.
Skip to 9:45 for actual takeoff, its just 9 odd minutes of taxi up till then.
General Electric CFM56 engines throttle up at 9:50…. (excellent GE whine – turn the sound up if you don’t mind the distortion through the mic.)
What is my Ninja Name?
You have to love this.
Translate your name into an honest to goodness Ninja
I found it over at Fugly during some mindless surfing whilst avoiding doing some of the household chores I am committed to doing.
Scrambled Eggs Soup
Two children and their father sitting down to lunch. A daughter aged four and half and a son aged two and a half, both of whom bounce off of each other like two of the Three Stooges.
I love them both dearly but sometime, well, they are two kids and they know how to pull your strings.
It’s lunch time. I want my children to eat, but they have dug their heels in and now I need leverage.
My daughter has been begging me for ABC 4 Kids TV for almost five hours. It started at about eight am. I drew the line. “After lunch” I said. “You can have ABC kids after lunch.”
Then I changed the requirements to: “after you BOTH eat ALL your lunch.” There is no point leaving loopholes in your directives because, kids being kids will find that loophole and exploit it. Okay? Quite concrete that stipulation don’t you think.
Well, so I thought …
Filco Majestouch TenKeyless Ninja Cherry MX Black keyswitch keyboard
I just acquired the Tenkeyless version of the Filco Majestouch 2 Ninja mechanical keyboard. Apparently it is “A whole new concept keyboard, [the] Majestouch NINJA, for middle class users or above!” That’s nice of them – For middle class users and above. Hope you are not lower class or you are not invited to have a go. I don’t get it.
I just talked a friend into starting her own blog. Have a look.
I have to hand it to her, what a domain name www.booblemuppet.com
I love it.
Have fun Carlin.
Headaches and Insomnia – Is it Jetlag or Wireless Internet?
I’ve arrived back from an extended holiday overseas, I am now suffering jetlag, or so I’ve been told.
It’s been five days and my sleeping patterns are still nowhere close to normal. I wake at 2am and, it’s like “bing” my mind and eyes are ready to go. It’s game over and I just can’t get back to sleep.
Headaches in the country side
I have just arrived back in Australia after spending 2 months in country
Wireless Radiation – is there too much wireless radiation around?
Recently I decided to try this thing called a Wireless Network.
I know, I know. Your thinking “Why are you still living in the dark ages. This wireless stuff has been around for years… Get with the program and catch up with everyone else” you are probably thinking.
Well, I did just that. I updated my network; installed a couple of wireless cards into the computers in my house; unplugged the laptop from the LAN and switched on the wireless setting on my router.
All good! Up and running. Then about 30 seconds later I get a sharp pain in the side of my head! The right side to be exact, extending in a line from the base of my right ear up over the top of my heard to half way down the other side almost to the top of my left ear. Weird! I felt wired, like I’d drunk 3 esspressos in 5 minutes. Or was it the wireless radiation?
I think it is the wireless radiation that is getting to me.
When Travelling with Children; Consider Baby Panodol
There are three things that should not be separated; International Travel, Children, and Baby Panodol. It can be done, international travel with children that is; but I wouldn’t recommend it; not to anyone unless you have a bottle of Baby Panodol to drug them with.
Before you go crying foul, for the record I don’t mean drug them literally, but, that’s what Baby Panodol is, a drug of sorts, although the manufacturers would rather call it something else, whatever it is.
This all relates to Life BC. What is life before children you may be asking. Well, Life Before Children, as it relates to the less than enlightened, pertains to that blissful ignorance that all things a light and roses.
The reason being, recently whilst undertaking some international travel, the first since BC, Life Before Children (more on that soon), my youngest child literally went nuts about a half hour into the flight! I mean, he really went nut! He cried, screamed, threw things across the plane cabin; you name it, from about a half hour into the flight and continued for the next three hours he just plain lost his marbles.
He really knew how to pull my strings, and there was nothing I could do about it. I still haven’t figured out what he was distressed about. He wasn’t in pain. But I was.
So, what I mean when I say something to drug your child with is that you need to have a child trauma backup treatment on hand; something to take the edge off a major tantrum. I don’t recommend first time international travel with a young child to anyone; unless of course you have a bottle of Baby Panodol.
Back to the diatribe; So, what does all this mean to the uninitiated?
Well, it means that travel is no longer a pleasant experience; as it was with life BC (Life Before Children, ie BC rather, International Travel is an undertaking that should be considered long and hard; considered in the same manner that would accompany someone who is resigned to facing the firing squad. You will suffer at the hands of the toddler, and there isn’t anything one can do to address it.
Life Before Children was devoid of consideration for others to any significant degree. But, Life After Children, is a whole different kettle of fish. You can’t escape that. You have to consider your kids.
Enjoy Your Trip, and consider Baby Panodol; just in case.
Is this Insomnia? I get some sleep but not enough.
For the past few years I’ve been waking up at 3am, sometime 3:30am no matter what time I go to sleep at night.
It’s weird. I don’t know why. It’s pissing me off. For some reason my eyes snap open in the wee hours of the morning, my mind starts going, and it is basically game over. I’m awake for the day.
By 10am that morning, I’m exhausted. This will sound funny to some, stupid to others, but I hope there is someone who doesn’t laugh; It’s almost as if someone is playing games with my Is it sleep.
Is this Insomnia? Technically I get some sleep; but it’s only ever 3, 4 or 5 hours. Before moving to Brisbane, Australia, I was use to 7 or 8 hours solid sleep. Then I’d wake and power through the day. Now, it’s as if I’m always running on empty. I’m am now officially sick of it. But there is no way I’m going to take pills just to knock me out.
I can’t figure it out.
What is SOPA?
SOPA is what the big media corporations have always wanted; and it is what they have been working towards for more than a decade. SOPA makes someone else take responsiblity for enforcing copyright owners rights; and forces smaller organisations who do not have the resources to respond to accusations of copyright infringement; into a policing roll where they have no choice but to comply with the directives of the larger media orgainisations.
It sounds like a hair brained computer geek conspiracy theory doesn’t it.
But it isn’t …
It’s SOPA and Protect IP - the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Bills currently before US Parliamentary Congress; and it is due to be passed into legislation and become law very soon.
Hacked By chliZAceh?
This website was recently hacked by chliZAceh. Thanks mate; I appreciate that.
I’ve been trying rying to fix your work in between changing my kids dirty nappies, preparing dinner for my wife when she gets home from work, cleaning up the house and helping other people with their NerdBox issues … so your handiwork is very much appreciated. Yeah, thanks mate, thanks very much!
A seemingly nice chap, chliZAceh at least had the decency to leave the files on the server intact and just inserted a dummy home page which got served up by the webserver instead of my material. Essentially his dummy webpage masked my content.
The articles on this website were still accessible by direct link or search engine. That was nice of him if I must say and a pleasant surprise considering some hackers are nothing more than vandals who just want to hurt people and upset them for no other motive than self serving satisfaction.
