      Hooray! There are even more dreadful things than we already knew for everyone here to worry about, besides telemetry, Windows 7 EOL, Windows 10 updates and terminal BSOD-causing buggy patches! So, maybe this is the right time and the right place to let you all have this awful and dire warning:

      Better watch for little flies buzzing around your head and, if they do, at least for the moment, try not to think about being an involuntary Windows 10 beta tester: They like tears!

      Kirsty: No, no pity for them! Why? Because if this puts them off their feed, that serves them right! Everybody should know by now that one should not surf the Web while having a meal, or vice versa. It’s a very unhealthy practice! And better for people to be grossed out by the article, if that keeps them from getting a slithering ophtalmological big problem in the first place, I do say!

      And I thought the morale of the story was : Don’t go RUNNING around! 😥😂😀

      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

        Wavy: That too, but the “don’t cry” advice is applicable especifically to situations when there are little flies around.

        As to running as a healthy practice (but feet and knees might not necessarily agree), I always have thought of it as an acquired taste, like drinking bitters, if somewhat interesting to watch, depending on the looks and age of the runner.

          There should be a happy medium but a Marathon looks like masochism to me, if nobody is chasing you …
          I always liked sports better as a (not good) participant than an observer, running was never in the running. I might make an exception if the SU BB team ever gets well into the NCAA play-offs again.

      When I take a trek the flies don’t stand a chance. Finally came up with an all natural anti-bug topical oil the little punks absolutely hate. My arms were getting tired until putting the mix to the test, successfully, and they’re gone in the wink of an eye. 😉

        WG: “…and they’re gone in the wink of an eye.”

        Hmmm…

        So, I take it that there were little flies around where you were trekking before. Have you been blinking very often since then?
