It's time for me to talk about my "heat sinks". I generate lots of anger. I've spent most of my life as a very angry person. I'll spare my readers the "laundry list", but the causes are myriad. Anger is a killer. It damages and destroys people in similar fashion to the heat in a microchip. My heat sinks are "my people". My wife and kids, "The Circle", my shooting group, my friends, they all draw off my anger and "make it go away" when placed in direct contact with me. I know without question that I'd have self destructed long ago without them.
Much like a microchip, the cause of my anger is untouched by them. I find that I have just as much to be angry about, possibly more these days, than ever before. I'm just not feeling it. My anger is being quietly, tacitly, bled off and sent away, and I keep marching.
Noone ever talks about 'quality heat sinks' when shopping for or bragging on their electronic toys. Our favorite technologies could not exist without them. Consider me bragging on mine.
