Why? But I'll take it.

I understand it's due to all that time spent absorbing increased solar radiation levels at the job site.

**raises hand**

I have a question for Mr. H.  On the other site you have a club called Sudo Intellectual Somethingorother.  I was wondering if you meant "pseudo" or if "sudo" is a word I've never heard of, maybe foreign?

sudo (/ˈsuːduː/[4] or /ˈsuːdoʊ/[4][5]) is a program for Unix-like computer operating systems that allows users to run programs with the security privileges of another user, by default the superuser.[6] It originally stood for "superuser do"[7] as the older versions of sudo were designed to run commands only as the superuser. However, the later versions added support for running commands not only as the superuser but also as other (restricted) users, and thus it is also commonly expanded as "substitute user do".[8][9] Although the latter case reflects its current functionality more accurately, sudo is still often called "superuser do" since it is so often used for administrative tasks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudo

No ... It was purposefully misspelled for playful reasons.

smart people are dumb
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Ah but the flip side according to Einstein, is that moving at speed actually slows down the passage of time. So you are actually number of seconds younger than you thought you were.

I don't think gravitational time dilation is quite that high, over the course of a lifetime you might be a second younger than someone in distant space (ie. away from a massive object). Now relative velocity time dilation is a different story, but you would have to have something to compare to.

I have to take from MLW.  Pumping August is producing less clean water than dust these days and Argus has gone crazy on me again.

Just because I want to put alt-rights in ail does that mean I'm not for freedom ???:D :D :D
