I think terminal velocity is the speed you have on your way down when you accidentally step out of a plane in mid-air without a parachute.
I hate it when that happens!

I've been storing all my media backups into free services like Google Photos. I got tired of taking backups offline in External drives, DVDs etc. None of the CD backups I took late in the 1990s are working now May be it's the plastic booklet type CD/DVD archive I used. Almost 90% of the CD-Roms fail to read.
Now I'm just going only with online backups. It's good to see them providing free services.
But how far is this going to go?
All of a sudden, what if Google says "Pay $2000 to continue accessing your files" like a ransom?, and may be precisely after my storage size reaches several dozen TBs.
I wish they are going to be reasonable when, one fine day they start to think of charging for the storage.
Having this in mind, I'm keeping my "media-production" rate very normal. Over all, it should be just less than a TB as of now. I use the services very consciously. Even I feel a lot of guilt if I'm taking photos in Burst mode in camera. lol!

I recently just ran into some CDs I created in the late 90s, and everything on them is intact. The secrete to accessing the data, storing the CDs in the absolute worst way possible at the bottom of a box with no protection. [Thankfully most of what I had written was in a text format so it should aways be accessible, no matter what format changes may happen]
Common sense is admitting there is cause and effect and that you can exert some control over what you understand.
1) A conversation about hamburgers ends in violence.
2) A billionaire devotes his fortune to cosplay and beating up the mentally ill.
3) A lot of people take the Ice Bucket Challenge. It doesn't end well.
4) A white boy is told he's special; then he goes to private school.
5) An old man forces child into volcano.
6) A drug crazed lunatic slowly kills children one by one in front of their parents.
7) A man's wife is brutally murdered by a serial killer and his son is left physically disabled. His son is then kidnapped and he has to chase the kidnapper for thousands of miles with the help of a mentally disabled woman.
