Ok, I am experimenting once again with my new editor, composing offline. The good news here is that I can write from home, and I can do some things, layout-wise, that I couldn't do before. Like strikeout words. This is an essential tool for people who want to be moronic ironic, and make it look as though they are searching for precisely specifically exactly the right word. I get excited over the small stuff. I'm a cheap date, what can I say?
The Bad News is that my replacement brain favorite research tool, Google, is not quite as easily available when doing posts offline. If I am really hard pressed for a fact while writing, I do have the ability to use my brain cellphone to find the answer, but I am a bit spoiled by the fact that I usually have my search bar available in the upper right-hand corner of my screen, and if I want to fact-check, or dig a little deeper into something, mid-post, all I have to do is open a new tab and let my fingers do the walking.
For you youngsters: "Let your fingers do the walking" was the advertising slogan for a thing called the "Yellow Pages". You see, way back in the Pre-Google Era, between the years 30 P.G. and 0 P.G., when telephone numbers were still associated with fixed street addresses, The only "search engine" was a big, 42-pound book printed on tissue-thin yellow paper. It had everybody's phone number in the city written down inside it, and you had to physically turn the pages with your fingers. Nowadays, in the Google Dominant (or "G.D.") Era, our fingers don't walk, they take a cab. Or a jet. Soon, our fingers will probably be able to teleport.
Random Thought - If an apple a day keeps The doctor away, what happens if you just eat half an apple? Does it only keep half of a doctor away? Will the disembodied legs of a doctor come after you? If you don't want to be chased by undead doctors, then please, finish that apple!
