Next Week’s Post Last Week

Recently I started contributing to the Pateron of a webcomic I’ve been reading for over a decade. I figured why not? The guy’s more than earned it. One of the perks is that you get the next days strip the night before. This got me thinking about the entire concept of early access, especially for a serial.

Many moons ago, during the days of the Contest of Chairs HBO began offering those who signed up for their streaming service the chance to view the next weeks episode the week before. I saw a flurry of tweets and facebooks of people so excited that they got TWO episodes that first night…and then never again.

During basic and tech school there were a lot of people making a big deal about USAA making military pay available a day early. Despite my best efforts and Kavanaugh levels of calendar use I was unable to convince one guy in particular that the number of days between paychecks was still the same. Though unlike Kavanaugh I didn’t cry. Also I wasn’t lying.

Perhaps that’s my own personal failing.

I've traveled the world, but the exploration never ends. I've run marathons, but the race is far from over. I've completed life goals, but strive for more. I have questions with no answers, and answers to questions I've yet to ask.

Where are you going? Where have you been?
