revisiting the past and revitalizing my blogging

I have been lax with my blog over the last while. When I first started blogging I commented on just about everything that got said on my blog and treated it like a conversation.

For awhile now when the comments got really deep, I wasn't sure how to contribute and so backed off allowing the experts to post without comment by me. What that really did was get me in a bad habit of just reading my own blog instead of participating in my blog.

So....
I'm going back to the first of this year and taking a second look at all the old comments and putting in thoughts that I should have said back then, but didn't.

Death to inertia!!!!!!!

Wherever you wish to go, my dear. But some of us might be incorrigible, BWA.HA.HA.HA.HARRR**&^%$$##@

I quite like the way the symbols go outside the column :-)

The change is 100% in my behavior, not a remonstration of ANY of my commenters. It's me. I got lazy. I suffered from inertia. No longer.

Fiery's baaaaaack!!!!!!!! :D

What's wrong with inertia. Seems important to me... else the planets might disappear.

Oh you don't mean in the Physics meaning...

Silly me.

Richard said...

Doesn't "inertia" come from "inert", as in "an inert gas".

Fiery just wants better gas.

Richard said...

Hey. Now my symbols have wrapped properly and don't go outside the margin! The hell of html, I suppose.

Protium- you're right, I shouldn't have universally condemned inertia, just my own. :) It would be a lonely solar solar system without the other planets!

Richard- Inertia comes from the Latin word for idleness.

"I quite like the way the symbols go outside the column :-)" Too much time with your accounting software, not enough time with your brandy snifter.

You are absolutely right; both words have the same origin in Latin:

inertia: [Latin, idleness, from iners, inert-; see inert.]

inert: from L. inertem (nom. iners) "unskilled, inactive," from in- "without" + ars (gen. artis) "skill".

So, you want to be more skilled, more artis, less idle, not just inert gas. You want better gas.
