Twice five syllables

Plus seven can't say much but

That's Haiku for you.

Behavioral Optometry? Apparently this type of vision correction used to be quite popular a few decades ago, but has for some reason fallen out of popularity as time went by. It bears investigation, I'd say. I've been thinking of learning to shave using a straight razor. It seems like it would be fun to use, but I'm afraid I would cut the ever-lovin' hell out of myself. I'm not very good with sharp objects. This is just another wine making link. I put all these here because I never know where to put them, so for those of you that are sick of hearing about it, if indeed I have any repeat readers that aren't Tom, just ignore. This paper about dreams and various mythological interpretations thereof is pretty neat. I will have to go back and read the rest of it sometime when I have the chance. Also, I need to at some point do a search on physostigmine and find out what the hell it is.

Researchville is a search engine that has a way listed to search articles and academic papers. This would be pretty handy if I would ever go back to school. Here is a search engine I've never tried, as well. I have a few links to these. Why, you may ask? Well, if you're trying to find something and having a hard time locating it, say because of a bunch of damned porn links or because you have picked something that just happens to be a character string in several academic papers and news reports, like the other day when I was trying to figure out how to remote set the outgoing message on my old AT&T 1311 answering machine. I got several thousand results, and it took me two hours to find a site that had the control codes. I never did find the site I wanted to, though. It's a shame, I thought I had linked it, but since I didn't - the code is 4,*. Mind you, you have to have the password code, so don't everyone go trying to change my messages. Infonetware is another research site. From the look of it, it looks through doctorate papers, too. Softcrawler is a software search engine. Fuzzycrawler looked like a Yahoo knock-off, but still kinda cool. The font reminds me of the lettering onLinda Perry's first solo album. Email search engines aren't really my thing, but I figure they come in handy once in a while. Pasoo is a different approach to a search engine, although I must say that a search engine with ads in the middle of the page is not likely to go very far. Then again, search engine technology isn't a very good way to go very far in general right now, what with Google having most of it sewn up. Lawsearch is one of those things you probably will never use, but it's good to know it's there if you need it. I forget what this one does, presumably something with government. Findarticles is kinda neat, too. Message King is a great idea. If someone would actually do it so it worked correctly, it would be fantastic.
