Tree-Lined Sky

Driving home from work last night, Spring hit me with how nice it is around here. You can't look in any direction without seeing trees. (My kids point out this is not true for straight up and straight down. But I point out this could still be true if you were standing in a tree.) Even the gas station on the corner has an apple tree. Not sure they're safe to eat though.

Superpower of Marginal Utility: (Contributed by Z) Being able to tell what's being written by listening to the pencil movements.

that super power would have been a lot more useful 50 years ago!

Yes, that's what makes it's utility so marginal! Listening to typing would be more useful nowadays.

I'm reading "Blink" right now and it reminds us how anachronistic technology _could_ be like a superpower. When everyone has a box to help them think, and you have a pencil, you will definitely be outside the box! : )
