William Gibson's Blog...
    #1530590 - 05/08/03 01:42 PM (15 years, 20 days ago)

So I stumbled onto his blog today, and here's an entry from yesterday...

Quote:

HOMEBREW JAPANESE COMPUTER HOUSINGS

These people are just so superbly crazy...

Indeed... :laugh:

PS: For anyone who may not know who William Gibson is, he is the author, who coined the term "cyberspace," and wrote many influential novels which helped define various aspects of the emerging cyberpunk culture of the late 20th century....

CHOCOLATE DOGS

Got up at 4AM today to try to squirt utterly black liquid charcoal into our geriatric dog, which at midnight had sneakily devoured three-quarters of a bar of Belgian chocolate. Eating chocolate, at least in terms of heart rate, is the doggie equivalent of eating a golf-ball made of crack, so my wife and daughter had to take her off to the 24-hour emergency vet, where your credit card makes that $150 sound as you open the door. Last time I was there, one of our cats had Kitty Ebola, but they pulled her through for roughly the cost of a new iBook.

Strange, how differently substances affect different mammals. The physiology of catnip, though only in cats, is such that if it worked that way on humans it would be one of the most widely abused substances in the world. The concentrated essence of one particularly potent Japanese species will cause classic nipped-out kitty-cat reactions in wild, fully-grown African lions. Something I?d love to see.

At the animal emergency clinic, they speak of Chocolate Dogs, and there was already another one there when ours arrived.
