Trip Log 2017-09-22 h15

Heh, here's an ad (the first and probably only of its kind at gnuvola — we will resist the dark side as long as possible), riffing off the closing paragraphs of the preceding trip log.  It is ha-ha only serious (at least until I can find employment, but maybe even after).

The last blurb is to encourage contact by rich and powerful folks who (a) have kids; (b) realize their current trajectories are setting up their kids for assassination attempts; (c) don't mind mixing a bit of conscientious construction in with the diffident destruction they've sown in the education of their kids; (d) think I might be able to help; (e) respond to “special consideration”.  :-D 

Of course, there's much room to quibble about what is a “kid” these days.  I've come to understand there is a wide range of characteristics, not only age, that define that term, and furthermore, the definition is often personal and well-guarded. 

“Get real, ttn!  The emperor has no need for more eunichs.” 

Well, that's good!  That's NOT part of the offer!
