Comment: So there's this tortoise (Score 5, Insightful) 102

Holden: You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down...

Leon: What one?

Holden: What?

Leon: What desert?

Holden: It doesn't make any difference what desert, it's completely hypothetical.

Leon: But, how come I'd be there?

Holden: Maybe you're fed up. Maybe you want to be by yourself. Who knows? You look down and see a tortoise, Leon. It's crawling toward you...

Leon: Tortoise? What's that?

Holden: [irritated by Leon's interruptions] You know what a turtle is?

Leon: Of course!

Holden: Same thing.

Leon: I've never seen a turtle... But I understand what you mean.

Holden: You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back, Leon.

Leon: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden? Or do they write 'em down for you?

Holden: The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.

Leon: [angry at the suggestion] What do you mean, I'm not helping?

Holden: I mean: you're not helping! Why is that, Leon?

[Leon has become visibly shaken]

Holden: They're just questions, Leon. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response... Shall we continue?

I've always respected construction zones until I saw the abuse in Alberta. They put their signs up days before they do any work. They put them way too far before the real work. When they're working very close to the road they'll not put signs up at all. It's just a clusterfark. A construction zone sign pretty much means nothing because the construction workers have abused the system so much.

I've used one for years. I primarily use it on my phone but it's backed up and synchronized across all my devices. I use a VERY long password but I can type it very quickly. I can quickly log into anything, even if it has been a year since I've logged in. I can also store important personal items such as insurance and health information.
