The unraveling of the mind.

I just read a nice article by @lucjah about bananas. 

I thought to myself, hmmm.. these links are interesting, but if I start opening them... "What am I actually doing?"

All my open tabs remind me of how my brain feels when my dad is telling a story:

We were riding our bikes out on 41, and this guy in a big ol' 4x4 jeep started getting too close to the bike lane. 
Those jeeps are pretty cool, but I don't know what the point of jacking them up so high is. 
Anyway, we figured he was either drunk or texting or something. There were a lot of us. Mike was in the middle of the pack and noticed the Jeep guy swerving.
You remember Mike, he's the guy who's house we host the annual bike-club party at.
So Mike yells at the guy loud enough for the guy to slow down.
While he was slowing down, the cars behind him started backing up and getting annoyed - causing more problems.

At which point, I interrupt and ask: "What was the point of the story?"

To which he concludes: "Oh yeah, we climbed 8,300 feet and out of 34 people, we only had a single flat tire."

HyperLinked text, in theory, is an amazing idea. It's also a rabbit hole.  Be careful of falling in. ( link to article below )

    @brianball I think I prefer the initial version of your father's story :)

      @philh - hahahaha.. the point is, he doesn't start off to tell a story. ;-) ( but, once he realizes he's got my attention, he might as well share -- which I don't object to at all, and... if I count the overall importance, it's probably best to just listen -- and care less about the 'point'. Thanks for the reminder.
