The collective actions of our population dictate, in part, the reality we face. Youre boring.

Im nice to people because I want other people to be nice to each other and recognize their role as a cog in the machine. If you dont want to be a cog then **** off and dont rely on the machine.

TIL that it's illegal to sell unlabeled water bottles.

TIL Benjamin Franklin attempted to achieve perfect morality, failed, but in failure found catharsis toward the human condition.

"My intention being to acquire the habitude of all these virtues, I judg'd it would be well not to distract
my attention by attempting the whole at once, but to fix it on one of them at a time; and, when I should
be master of that, then to proceed to another, and so on, till I should have gone thro' the thirteen; and,
as the previous acquisition of some might facilitate the acquisition of certain others, I arrang'd them
with that view, as they stand above.

These names of virtues, with their precepts, were:
1. Temperance. Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
2. Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
3. Order. Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
4. Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
5. Frugality. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.
6. Industry. Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
7. Sincerity. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.
8. Justice. Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
9. Moderation. Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
10. Cleanliness. Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation.
11. Tranquillity. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
12. Chastity. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dulness, weakness, or the injury
of your own or another's peace or reputation.
13. Humility. Imitate Jesus and Socrates."

Original Source: Benjamin Franklin, "Autobiography." In The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, The Journal of
John Woolman, the Fruits of Solitude William Penn. Ed. Charles W. Eliot. (New York: P. F. Collier and Son, 1909).

When I was a child we used to go fishing at a pond. The owners of the pond sold unlabelled water bottles that were pierced and entwined with a length of fishing wire threaded by a hook at its end. I wonder if this would be illegal or if the bottle would have to be sold with the intention that it be used to drink out of.

If it wasn't allowed, I'm sure a great lawyer could find a way to categorize the line and hook as a label.
