Thought for the day

The next time you're in a restaurant, notice how every customer will touch and adjust their plate after the server has set it down but before the customer starts eating.

You do it, too.

Curiously, I've argued with plenty of people about this. I've watched them do it and later pointed it out, only to hear them deny that they did it. Then they say "oh, well the waitress didn't set it down with the way I wanted it". Mind you, many of these people will simply turn the plate a centimeter or so, but they still touch and adjust it, but usually aren't even aware that they or others are doing it.
Not really ...
I have plenty of things to talk about, but I just didn't feel like writing up much about neural networks. On the other hand, most here don't care about the tech stuff I do (as most geeks would do well to admit), so I try to limit that :)

And admit it: you touch those damned dirty plates, too.

And most thank you for that. :)

As far as reporting your geek stuff, hey, no one cares about Winston Churchill and potato salad either, but the word has to get out!
Re: Not really ...
I didn't want to say anything, so I'm relieved to realize that you're aware of your problem.

If you seek help voluntarily, it will lift a great burden from your friends.
Re: Not really ...
O my peeps, backs bent from carrying such a heavy load!! (shut it)
I'm not aware and can't even remember if I do this, but I know now that because you've told me it's left my subconscious and until I catch myself off guard I won't do it again.
Not only do I confess to plate touching, but I pretty much rearrange everything else on the table while I'm waiting for my food. Oh wait, you know this already.
