Sheer Genius

In New York state, no less.

Cheney being Cheney.

Cheney Visits Hunting Lodge That Hangs The Confederate Flag:

"Nobody got shot, but Vice President Cheney still fired up controversy Monday when he went hunting at a private club that hangs the Confederate flag."

Wile E. Coyote is not on this list. Odd, because he is a 'Super-Genius'.

Sheer genius: from the web to Homer Simpson | The Guardian | Guardian Unlimited

One is credited with dreaming up the technological innovation that has arguably done most to transform our lives in recent years; the other is behind a cartoon about a custard-hued family in middle America.

Yet both the worldwide web founder, Tim Berners-Lee, and the Simpsons creator, Matt Groening, are among the world's top 10 living geniuses, according to a report which ranks individuals according to their "genius factor".

It used a scoring system to assess contenders on how much their contribution had turned conventional thinking on its head, the popular acclaim they received, their intellectual power, their achievements and their cultural importance

Things I no longer deal with:

Gossip, e-mailing "all" among top office peeves:

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Work colleagues who spend their day gossiping, organizing their home lives, or who press 'reply all' on e-mails are among the biggest nuisances in the office, according to a survey released on Monday."

Happens to the best of us.

He's not undead, just unsober... :

"BERLIN (Reuters) - Passengers on a German train mistook a Halloween reveler dressed up as a gore-covered zombie for a murder victim and called the police. The 24-year-old man fell into a drunken slumber on his way home from a Halloween party in Hamburg, police in the northern town of Bad Segeberg said Monday."

We had a zombie parade from the student union to a local theater for a double feature showing of Army of Darkness and Evil Dead. I'm sure they all wanted to be scary and gross, but I couldn't help thinking they were all so cute!

I'm bored...there seems to be something missing, but I just can't put my finger on it.

Oh yeah, all diversion has been removed from my work day and I'm left with...well...work.
