Oh by the way, folks,
Today we take note of a scientific researcher who views religious extremism as a mental illness that can be cured. A more extreme view might be that all religions are mental illnesses, and whether they can be cured is doubtful. But hey, view it any way you like.
And so yesterday I experienced a MRI. First they have you put all metal possessions into a storage space. Then they strap you onto a conveyor belt and convey you into a sorta-like mine-shaft tunnel. Then they play a 20-minute-long strange symphony of horrible noises like what Beethoven woulda never composed. Then they convey you back out again and tell you that you done good.
So, I'll take the result back for a follow-up apptment with the knee doctor some time next week.
And then in the afternoon the heat pump tech came and fixed the heat pump in about three seconds, and explained how the problem happened.
The dehumidifier apparently sucked up some cat hairs along with the humidity, and they formed a hairball in the drain tube, thus tripping a safety relay that shuts off the main power. Then the water slowly seeps through the hairball until the relay can trip back on again, and the system runs until the drain tube fills back up again.
So, the tech swabbed the hairball out of the drain tube and showed me how to do it the next time it happens.
So it's wonderful to have the whole house properly cool again.
And so today the Wondrous Weather Website is predicting all sorts of horrible stuff. If we decide to dine out I suppose it'll be at the nice close place just half a block away.
