Foghat – Slow Ride
Quote of the day:
“It’s the law of inverse relevance: the less you intend to do about something, the more you have to keep talking about it.” — Sir Humphrey, ‘Yes Minister’ (Sounds a lot like the government at all levels.)
“Data from the used underwear were downloaded each day to a computer.” — The L.A. Times explains with a straight face a study in which a high-tech set of underwear was used to document the consequences of fidgeting.
That quote absolutely deserves a comment! I have a plethora of remarks in mind but I really don’t want to go there. Go ahead and read the article; it really is a serious article. I wonder if I could get the company to outfit my cube with a treadmill mounted with a computer. I could generate my own electricity, which would save them money in the long run.
Question of the day:
Does ice cream have some sort of healing power that medical science has yet to discover? Is there some sort of enzyme or something in it that helps to heal emotional scars, broken hearts, and things that hurt inside? I’m just curious. I see it all the time in the movies and television and I’m wondering if there’s anything to it. Maybe I should apply for a government grant to study it further.
Joke of the day:

The middle-aged lady upon whom he was performing this exam suddenly burst out laughing and further embarrassed him. He looked up from his work and sheepishly said, “I’m sorry. Was I tickling you?” She replied, “No doctor, but the song you were whistling was, “I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener”.
