1. Thanks to everyone, who responded to my questions about digital cameras.
I'm about 99% sure that my parents don't care about camera quality, in terms of whether a picture was taken by an iPhone or a Canon. When they first got an HD TV, they spent about a month, complaining that they could not tell the difference between the HD channels and normal channels. "They look exactly the same!"
2. Yesterday, a schoolteacher accused me of trying to make innocent people feel guilty. I find this to be a rather odd accusation.
After all, when I taught in school, none of my fourth graders ever felt bad for talking out of turn, disrupting class, not paying attention, etc. They were guilty, and they felt perfectly innocent. If I can't make guilty people admit their guilt, how am I supposed to make innocent people admit to false guilt? But more importantly, why would I bother to do that? What possible benefit could I get from deliberately causing psychological damage?
3. Yesterday, I bought a new pair of shoes, because I had a coupon. This is the first time I bought shoes by myself, and I feel like an adult now. Let's celebrate the fact that I have two pairs of shoes with a song from one of the women who played Nancy Drew.
