Lansing D. McLoskey (Cambridge) "Theft", para piano y voz, interpretada por Guy Livingston
(para el proyecto "Don't Panic! 60 Seconds for Piano")


The funny thing about life is that it's temporary; that is to say, temporary in the intemporal sense of the word, meaning that all living things and all that we do are subject to the precepts and effects of time. If you live an average lifespan and escape such non-time-related hazards as fire, wolves, cancer, steep precipices, Mack trucks, and bolts of lightening you can count on somewhere in the vicinity of thirty-nine million minutes for you to use as you see fit according to your free will and constraints that may be imposed upon you by environmental, health, economic, and political boundaries. Though this may sound more than sufficient, consider that the first nine million are spent learning to simply function and trying to figure out what your priorities are. Thirteen million of them are spent sleeping and another five million or so eating to obtain the energy needed to deal with the little remaining time. Of course in order to buy all this food and protect yourself from the wolves and lightening you'll spend some nine million working by the sweat of your brow. Untold millions are spent enduring uninteresting conversations, watching bad TV shows and doing things that you don't like. You ever feel like someone just stole a minute of your life?


Lo curioso acerca de la vida es que es temporal; es decir, temporal en el sentido intemporal de la palabra, lo que quiere decir que todas las cosas vivas y todo lo que hacemos está sujeto a los preceptos y efectos del tiempo. Si usted  tiene una esperanza de vida promedio y logra escapar a peligros no relacionados con el tiempo como fuego, lobos, cáncer, precipicios escarpados, camiones Mack, y rayos, puede contar con algunos de los siguientes treinta y nueve millones de minutos que le quedan por usar como le plazcan de acuerdo a su voluntad y las imposiciones que quizá le imponga el medio ambiente, la salud, la economía y las barreras políticas. Aunque esto parezca más que suficiente, tiene que considerar que los primeros nueve millones de minutos serán gastados aprendiendo a simplificar funciones y tratando de identificar cuáles son sus prioridades. Trece millones de minutos serán usados en dormir y otros cinco millones en comer para obtener la energía que necesitará para lidiar con el resto del tiempo. Claro que para poder comprar toda esa comida y protegerse a usted mismo de lobos y rayos, tendrá que usar unos nueve millones de minutos trabajando con el sudor de su frente. Sin mencionar los millones de minutos usados en conversaciones aburridas, mirando malos programas de televisión y haciendo cosas que no le gustan. ¿Alguna vez ha sentido que alguien le robó un minuto de su vida?

Winning at online casinos is possible for anybody who is willing to put the time in. Unfortunately, a lot of people are looking for a get rich quick scheme, so they start to place bets without doing the proper amount of research. When you know what is going on at a internet casino you immediately increase your chance of success. And if you can couple this with a bit of strategy and know how, you will be well on your way to winning money. Just remember, the more you know the more you will win.

Just like live casinos, online casinos put minimum bet amounts in place to ensure that they are making enough money off of their patrons. Most of the larger casinos will have small bet amounts that will attract a larger crowd, but some of the smaller sites will have larger amounts, sometimes not affordable to the every once in a while player, to make up for the lack of players.
[url=]casino[/url] casino Betting is still very much present, even when playing online casinos. You will be required to place your money on an account, and this will be transferred to the winner via PayPal or Neteller. So before handing in cash, check out the website, first! If they have more members and a good reputation, you can almost be assured that you get your moneys worth. Make sure that before downloading any of software an online casino is offering, there has to be test run of the product first. You have to be able to play for free before you download the software, since this may help in protecting you from fraud in the end. An example of this software is the Cryptologic, is safe and can be trusted, since it is listed in the Nasdaq.

[url=]bingo[/url] [url=]bingo[/url] bingo bingo With online bingo your cards are randomly selected by the computer and you can play with a great number of cards sometimes as many as 100 or more. Ordinarily you will need no more than three or four cards. A display board or a caller will flash your bingo numbers and you will need to fill the pattern displayed to win the game. Some online games will have the computer automatically search and fill the numbers for you. Some people find this automation a kill-joy but some actually love the fact that all they have to do watch for the bingo flash!!! [url=]phentermine[/url] buy phentermine
