From spam I got today:

widgeon decibel screwdriver

Are they selling a knock off of Dr. Who's Sonic Screwdriver or a really strong drink? And do I want to know how ducks are involved?

Learning something every day...

I was listening to public radio on the way into work this morning and they were discussion Holst's The Planets. I had always assumed the symphonies were based on astronomy and the nature of the planets, with a combination of the nature of the gods they are named after. Not so. Well... Sort of. The symphonies are based on astrology, with each planet represeting basic human natures/moods. Like Jupiter is jovial (the roman name for Jupiter was Jove, hence jovial (happy or joyous) comes from Jove). And Mars is full of anger and rage.

Learn something new everyday. I think I will need to relisten to Holst's The Planets with this new understanding.

To my friends quiting smoking:

My old room mate claimed that when ever you feel the urge to smoke, do a nitrous hit and the urge will go away. While I don't think he has ever successfully quit smoking, he certainly loves trying.

Personal predjudice #801392:

Women in their 70-80's should wear bra's or shirts with padding (i.e., not t-shirts) when in public, so I don't have to see how their boobs hang to their belt and clearly see their nipples through their shirt.

This predjudice has been brought to you by male chauvanism, generational chauvanism, and the number 23.
