Thanks, Ned. Like the last Twitterdump, this one has some really great stuff in it.

The "No Arms, No Legs, No Problem" link has reminded me, for at least a few minutes, that I really don't have any reasons to be anything but satisfied with my life. I already knew that, but sometimes a reminder can make it easier to remember, and to live that way.
