They elect a new Pope here everyday.


note: I’ll have to seclude myself and look inward to find a joke about conclave and concave.

double note: playing with matches at a match factory is probably a no no.

triple note: I’ve been noticing a lot of wood factories lately: logs must be in season.

Choose your routines wisely.

The Comfort Zone


People have adapted to live in some pretty inhospitable environments on this planet.

I guess originally they didn’t know any different or better.
Maybe they thought everywhere was the same and just sucked it up and carried on the best they could.

… but now most people know that there are climatically less challenging places to live.

Have people just got used to where they live? … or are they nuts?


note: sorry if this post was anticlimatic.

double note: some people live in inhospitable environments … but there are a lot of people who are inhospitable in all environments.

triple note: is there an inhospitality service industry that I’m not aware of? … it seems to be really popular.

quadruple note: planetross is an adapter, but not for everywhere.
… I may ruin your electronic equipment.

quintuple note: planetross doesn’t rely on matches and ice cubes for heating and cooling: those are used for other things.

Heating and cooling are supplied by:

You’ll live in places with central heating, wood burning stoves, fireplaces, water radiators, coal stoves, oil furnaces, electric heat, propane heat, kerosene heat, and dung burning ovens.
… I’m just kidding about the dung burning. hee hee!

Some Days

Geiger Counter tops are hot!


Some days I think I’m radioactive because …

it feels like I’m living a half-life.


note: a candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long, so a candle that burns twice as dim must burn twice as long … but why bother?

double note: an unlit candle lasts the longest but it’s kind of useless without a match.

triple note: when I think about images of loving life and wanting to squeeze out everyday of it … I think of Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty jamming that nail into his hand in Blade Runner.

You never have a cool hair style.

Same Page

I’m on the same page as most people: just in a different book.


note:No reading aloud allowed“. And people say holidays are unproductive!

double note: When someone says, “You can’t judge a book by its cover“. I usually reply, “Who said anything about books? I was talking about that funny looking guy over there!

triple note: Overdue “pregnancy” books are usually very weighty and have a lot of contractions at the end.

quadruple note: Libraries should have “match books“.  Some people are only looking for light reading.

quintuple note: I guess “match books” would be in the friction section.




I’m not a big collector.

I have a clear plastic coin bank that is shaped like a head. I don’t like to collect change, so I am filling it up with matches instead.

Places aren’t giving away matches like they used to: I guess the non-smokers are winning the battle.

I’m not too serious about my match collection.
It’s just a bonus when I find some.
Oooo Matches!

note: I’m thinking about collecting plastic heads next.
