And beyond this there lies in the ocean, turned towards the west and north, the island of Niatirb which Hecataeus indeed declares to be the same size and shape as Sicily, but it is larger, though in calling it triangular a man would not miss the mark. It is densely inhabited by men who wear clothes not very different from the other barbarians who occupy the north western parts of Europe though they do not agree with them in language.

My daughter decided to confound me this afternoon by hitting the option key 5 times on our MacMini. She did this accidentally, and without knowing that she did, but once she did, the keyboard no longer worked in its normal way. Unbeknownst to me, she enabled Mouse Keys.

Generally speaking, getting in shape is a selfish endeavor. We usually try to get in shape because we want to look better or feel better about ourselves. I mean, we could say we’re doing it for our kids or for our loved ones but if we’re honest, it’s mostly about self-image.
