I like stupid little projects.

Is there anything fun I can do with an old wireless b linksys router? It's basically junko. I mean, it works but the wireless speeds are pointless. Really the only thing worth using it for is a hub to get some more wired connections if need. But I don't even know if it's 10/100/1000, it might just be 10/100.

It's probably 100mbps. I'd use it as a network switch.

From now on, the word 'cool' cannot be used. Instead, you have to say 'legend'.

That's what they day in Africa, and I wanna see if it is possible for this to catch on. It is much more legend than the word 'cool.'

:legend: <---- we need to get that fixed. Lol. Random enough for yall?

I have no idea. This is just something that a few people have told me.

Not so fast foothead. . .

Cool

In African Art in Motion, African art scholar and Yale professor Robert Farris Thompson turns his attention to cool in both the African and African-American contexts:

The mind of an elder within the body of the young is suggested by the striking African custom of dancing "hot" with a "cool" unsmiling face. This quality seems to have haunted Ten Rhyne at the Cape in 1673 and it struck the imagination of an early observer of strongly African-influenced dancing in Louisiana in the early nineteenth century, who noted "thumping ecstasy" and "intense solemnity of mien." The mask of the cool, or facial serenity, has been noted at many points in Afro-American history:

It is interesting that what remains a spiritual principle in some parts of Africa and the rare African-influenced portions of the modern U.S.A., such as tidewater Georgia, becomes in the mainline Afro-American urban culture an element of contemporary street behavior:

Negro boys…have a 'cool' way of walking in which the upper trunk and pelvis rock fore and aft while the head remains stable with the eyes looking straight ahead. The…walk is quite slow, and the Negroes take it as a way of 'strutting' or 'showing off'....

The…cool style of male walking in the United States is called bopping…. Mystical coolness in Africa has changed in urban African-American assertions of independent power. But the functions, to heal and gather strength, partially remain. And the name cool [kule], remains. And the body is still played in two patterns, one stable, the other active, part energy and part mind.
