The term fapping describes masturbating to Internet porn. The fact that one term describes two things in combination is interesting. I suppose we could apply this to older practices.

In following threads of rebooters the question takes on more significance because questions seem to arise repeatedly regarding where to draw the lines in avoiding porn and other sexually stimulating materials.
My stated reboot goal is one crore of days, a crore being ten million. So as I face the next 29,000 years :) I feel like I need to reflect upon progress made. Earlier tonight I posted the following on my journal at YBR:

First A Little Science

Getting Real In A HyperReal World
No other word so describes our age as the word HyperReality. I've heard rumblings of this concept for decades but it has become greatly enhanced in the last decade or so.

The story of the Apollo moon landings is filled with such accounts, program managers who instinctively knew that failure didn't have to be final.
