Is that a photo editor? Is it free?

Yes and yes. Do you ever download apps from the iPhone store?

No, and it sounds like I should do so.

Are there more good apps out there besides Prisma?

Have you heard of ToonPaint, OldVideo PRO, Artisto, Deep Art Effects, Silent Films, Pikazo, or Painnt? :lol:

Good God. No, no, no, no, no, and no. :lol:

Don't you ever take a picture without app-ing it up?

Would you believe that apping it up is mostly on my lengthy to-do list?

How many pics do you have to take for every pic you end up being proud of? For me the ratio is about 10:1.

Would you believe it's more like 100:1, since I take so many pictures?

Or maybe you have higher standards?

Are you suggesting by implication that you have low standards? :eek:

I might have low standards. Consider the fact that I enjoy chocolate, and Star Trek, in all their incarnations. :lol:

So if a good piece of art is in the eye of the beholder, does it make sense to have things like "The Academy Awards"?

Would it surprise you to learn that I don't care much for awards in general?

I'm so confused because I think I already responded to this question -- I'm having a Groundhog Day moment.

If we get those 24 hours of lost posts back, will they show up in their old places in chronological order?

If they did, wouldn't they replace posts that we've posted since the server switch, and confuse us even more?

Reminds me of the sci-fi trope (often shown in Star Trek) of people being caught in a time loop, repeating the same event countless times, and somehow experiencing a sense of deja vu, which inspires them to break the pattern.

In real life, have you ever experienced deja vu?

I have, a couple of times. What do you think causes that?

Could it be a coincidence? After all, if we dream about a million events per year, doesn't it stand to reason that we should occasionally encounter an event, by chance, that resembles one from a past dream?

Might it even be simple pattern recognition based on the way we organize people, places, and events?

Has anyone ever suggested that you should have grown up to be a cognitive psychologist?

What makes you think I'd make a good cognitive psychologist? Or was that sarcasm? :lol:

Your comment above on pattern recognition is right up a cognitive psychologist's alley :yes:

Isn't it unfortunate that written words cannot convey the presence or absence of sarcasm?

Should linguists accept emoticons as legitimate punctuation?

Then shouldn't Emoticon Literacy be a required part of every school's curriculum?

Is any sort of literacy required these days?
