Day 184 – (AD 1,089) – 22.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yes I still am hacking and spluttering and trying to speak with a deep, deep voice.

And so I did an online search looking for an adjective to describe a “deep voice”. I got 479,000 hits on “How to Get a Deep Voice”… I didn’t realize there were so, so many lessons.

My suggestion – get infected with this bug, whatever it is, that is going around. You’ll lose your voice, and you’ll be able to resound in the lower depths of a distant range of decibels.

This morning I pedaled 22.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. My totals: 23,236.9 miles; 37,396.2 kilometers.

My virtual journey around Italy continues. Google Maps has me located at Strada Provinciale 60, 71040 Manfredonia FG.



Question – When did we get to such a point that when something that is so, so much faster than it was from decades ago, can actually stress us out when it slows down? “Even researchers agree that slow internet can stress you out.” Engadget, Mariella Moon, March 17, 2016.

Ericsson found that the stress caused by trying to load videos on a slow mobile connection is comparable to the stress you feel while watching a horror movie…The participants showed signs of resignation, including eye movements that indicated distraction -- they were already giving up.

The media spin, from either side of the aisle, is amazing these days. BBC News today reports that a “Trump presidency rated among top 10 global risks: EIU”.
