My bologna has a first name, it’s bioresearch staff,
My bologna has a second name, it’s gas chromatograph,
And I have wondered, so have you,
Why it tastes the way it doooooo…..
‘Cuz Oscar Mayer has a way with recombinant DNA!

Notice how we are teased with “Be back later”
No time, no date. Nada, Zip, Zilch.
We could be waiting for months for all we know.
So, it all comes down to leading us on with open ended promises.

At first I interpreted John’s most recent event announcement as being in a bookstore called:

A Room Of One’s Own Tomorrow

Which seemed a pretty philosophical name for a book store.

So, how does this work? It’s like a “I’m on vacation” email auto-reply. But instead its a “I’m busy. Be back later” auto-blog? 24 hours without a blog post and it will randomly kick in?

That’s amusing… We, too, had a version of the bologna song back when I served on submarines. It went like this..

My reactor has a first name. It’s N A V A L.
My reactor has a second name that’s classified as hell.
Oh I love to run it every day, and if you ask me why, I’ll say…
‘Cause radiation has a way of screwing up your DNA.

Greg, that’s madness! An auto-post to prove his aliveness? How will we ever know if he’s really alive then? Why, we couldn’t trust *anything* if that were a thing. I’m talking like can’t trust gravity level of alarm, man. Whew. I need to lie down and catch my breath.
