Piece for ESP

  1. Focus on the idea, "odd numbers".
  2. Continue focusing, and roll a die.
  3. If the outcome is odd, today is a day for ESP!
  4. Do this each day, and keep a running tally of your results.
  5. If the outcome keeps moving towards "odd", this life is a life for ESP!
  6. Or you need new dice.

Piece for Anonymous

Next time you come across a personal blog of someone you've never met, bookmark it and check it frequently. Do your best to understand where the person is coming from, and leave thoughtful comments. Do this without letting it become creepy.

Piece for a Car Thief

  1. Discover a defining characteristic of these cars used to catch car thieves. (Perhaps RF signals used for controlling and monitoring the car.)
  2. If it is possible, enter the car without breaking into it.
  3. Say: "This is not my car." loud enough for the embedded microphone to record it.
  4. Exit the car.

Four and a Half Billion Years of Solitude

This is the only good poem I've ever written.

cinder in the sky;
enrapt by the earth,
sighs for a suicidal

(the moon one night
 stared back at me
 with blood on its face,
 awaiting another wedding)

Harry Houdini

Things I learned from the Wikipedia article on Harry Houdini:

  1. Sometimes things work, but they don't always
  2. When they don't work, the solution may be hidden in a kiss; or not working may have been part of the plan in the first place
  3. Sometimes it's important for people to see the process, and other times it's more alluring for it to be hidden
  4. The possibility of death is intriguing
