He chomped bamboo, his muscles bulging and coat gleaming in the cool mist

Mei Xiang watched Tian Tian from afar, and maybe it was the breeze or the oncoming Spring, but she felt a tingle in places she had never known existed before now. The way he chewed the bamboo, his masticating so effortless, his manly mandibles rippling through the thick fur on his cheeks - it was almost too much for her to watch, and yet she found she could not look away.

But she couldn't act. Not yet. It wasn't the right time or the right place, and they both knew that. Mei Xiang could see that Tian Tian held another in his heart, and she couldn't possibly compete with that memory. She wasn't even going to try.

Still, the way his fur shone brilliantly in the sun made her shiver involuntarily in spite of the sunshine. She wouldn't be able to say no forever, and she secretly hoped that it would be sooner rather than later...and there was no human in a green sweater in this fantasy. Just her and Tian Tian in a large bamboo grove, surrounded by nothing but forest, silence, and each other.

revolution and other essays

Here we have the Chinese, four hundred millions of him, occupying a vast land of immense natural resources resources of a twentieth century age, of a machine age; resources of coal and iron, which are the backbone of commercial civilization. He is an indefatigable worker. He is not dead to new ideas, new methods, new systems. Under a capable management he can be made to do anything. Truly would he of himself constitute the much-heralded Yellow Peril were it not for his present management. This management, his government, is set, crystallized. It is what binds him down to building as his fathers built. The governing class, entrenched by the precedent and power of centuries and by the stamp it has put upon his mind, will never free him. It would be the suicide of the governing class, and the governing class knows it.

a prime case of chaos

"A Prime Case of Chaos" is an article from Volume 4 of What's Happening in the Mathematical Sciences by Barry Cipra, published by the AMS. This article describes conjectural links between the Riemann zeta function, which is intimately related with prime numbers, and chaotic quantum-mechanical systems. Mathematicians have been studying the zeta function since the time of Riemann, in the 19th century, while quantum mechanics is a development of 20th century physics. Both of these areas, independently, as well as the hypothesized connection between the two, are topics of intense current research.

reality replacement

I think the appeal is that you get to pat your self on the back for keeping YOURSELF alive so long, as well. It's hard to keep them alive and happy, so therefore, you're doing a great job in real life by just managing to take a shower once in a while.

laxative

he got up in the morning on the waking realization he needed coffee and cigarettes. they advertised to him from proximity and deep programmed subconscious chemical desire. bright shining beacons atop maslow's pyramid that immediately crumbled upon gratification. and from then on? what's next.

the word for today is resplendent. resplendent.

btw...

The Word for Tomorrow is:

wisenheimer WYE-zun-hye-mer (noun)
: smart aleck

Example sentence:
"Everybody's a comedian," quipped Lisa, unperturbed, when some wisenheimer in the back row interrupted her speech with a clever comment.

Did you know?
We wouldn't joke around about the origin of this witty word. In the early 20th century, someone had the smart idea to combine the word "wise" (one sense of which is an adjective meaning "insolent, smart-alecky, fresh") with "-enheimer," playing on the pattern of family names such as "Oppenheimer" and "Guggenheimer." Of course, "wisenheimer" isn't the only "wise-" word for someone who jokes around. There's also "wiseacre," "wisecracker," and "wise guy," just to name a few. And all of these jokesters are fond of making "wisecracks."

also see bucko :) like when richard cunningham calls the fonz a "bucko" and the fonz responds in kind, "you better watch your mouth there, bucko!"
