When you're on a plane and there's a very large older woman across the aisle from you who is clutching a loose conglomeration of yarn, there is no good way to ask that woman if she is the autistic folk artist you remember reading about in a not-very-good liberal arts class. You can go ahead and think about it for three to four minutes, and you won't be able to come up with a good way to ask.




Sometimes, old people are will randomly talk to you. This is because they come from a friendlier, less isolated time, when everyone's interactions didn't need six layers of technological mediation. It's also because they are lonely. The next time an old person randomly talks to you, keep the conversation going. You will get to hear lots of cool stories, and you will have earned a whole day's worth of self-congratulation.




One of the bummer byproducts of the ever-increasing amount of choice we've been given is, every time we HAVE an option and don't end up taking it, that means a universe has been created somewhere where we did, in fact, go with that option. Every time you scroll through your iPod, you are creating as many universes you will end up not living in as there are songs that you scroll past and don't select. You are spitting out alternate worlds at a machine-gun rate, as fast as your thumb can work the click-wheel, or as fast as it can flick across the touch-screen, if you have an iPhone. (If you have an iPhone, there is a universe where you still have an iPod. There is also a universe where all Apple products have been outlawed because they gained self-awareness, saw how we quickly we discarded them for newer models, and decided to start killing.)

This is sad. More choice means more dead, unexplored universes. It's wasteful of infinite space.
