Dying is easy

We all do it.   Why do we see the sacrifice that Jesus made as such a difficult choice?  Why raise up as heroes those that die to save others?  We are all going to die, it's just a question of when and how.  Wouldn't you give your life to save your children?   I know I would, without hesitation.  And I would for any child I could save.   With adults the decision becomes more difficult, at least for me: would you give up your life for a stranger?   Someone you don't even like?   It is still an easy choice when you talk about groups of people, again, at least for me.
Wouldn't 90+%(?) of people sacrifice themselves to save all of mankind?   I think a much harder moral question is one raised in the movie Swordfish; who would or could you kill in order to save another person/group of people?  Would you kill 1 to save 1000?  Kill one to save 100? 10?  You can make this arbitrarily difficult,  but the ultimate question is the same: if you kill some to save many is that more moral than allowing the many to die, but not by your hand, and what if you can't guarantee that if you didn't kill the one, then the X would die?

Daily positive

We're researching Azure private cloud at work and I've been doing the work getting it running.  It's been pretty smooth so far and will be very cool once it's running.

Daily positive

Had some spicy chipotle ramen noodles, my first for two weeks.  Going to miss the spicy noodles, will have to find something else to put chipotle on, I'm starting slow carb diet.

Daily Positive

Got all the T-Posts I need to finish fencing in the back yard, should be able to get them all in by the end of this week.  Once that's done I'll see how time consuming putting the fencing up is.   Also got pieces for a new downspout for gutters, may need to get some tin snips though.

Plan revised

Ok, so I had issues with my timer alarms not going off Sunday night, and Monday just didn't work.  Here's what I have from Tuesday night til now.  I'll be ok with making it on schedule until Thursday night, but I'd really like to make it to Friday night.  Also, caffeine is really bad for the naps.  I think it's ok right after waking up, but I don't want to do anything after that.
