270 K this morning. Overnight lows in the low 260's.

Freak not-raining and not-freezing at the same time weather = first bike ride in a month. Can I get the video done today? Probably not, but at least I'll have one more up before New Year's.

In hindsight, I could have walked from 70th to 41st on Granville faster than it took the bus this morning.

One in a Million

In Classical times, being "one in a million" at something meant having about 170 peers in that field, spread out all over a world that took months or years to traverse such that the chances of directly interacting or competing with one was next to none. Even by the Renaissance, when "one in a million" meant about 500 peers, it remains remarkable that, for example Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo interacted and had a direct rivalry.
