:) and groan

Poor Johnson had spent his life making wrong decisions. If
he bet on a horse, it would lose; if he chose one elevator
rather than another, it was the one he chose that stalled
between floors; the line he picked before the bank teller’s
cage never moved; the lane he chose in traffic crawled; the
day he picked the picnic was the day of a cloudburst; and
so it went, day after day, year after year.

Quotes of the day

Well the day has got off to a slow start - I was working on some HTML 'till almost 2 AM and didn't move so quickly when the alarm went of at 5.15 this morning. *yawn* I've got a mug of coffee now so I'll start to wake up gradually. The page isn't finished yet but I'll post a link to one of the pictures later so you can all see it.

Today's selection of quotes are OK, but didn't make me leap or laugh ... but then it would take a bomb to make me leap right now :)


I don't have a bank account, because I don't know my mother's maiden name.
Paula Poundstone

People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.

We live in a Newtonian world of Einsteinian physics ruled by Frankenstein logic.
David Russell
Actually it is ruled by the cats, who are conducting sophisticated thought experiments with us all. If only they could operate tin openers without us they'd have done away with mankind [and womankind] years ago.

What this country needs is more free speech worth listening to.
Hansell B. Duckett
... or maybe for all the idiots to shut up?

Hans and Stein were playing in their yard in Zurich when one
of the boys accidentally swallowed a coin and started choking.
Hans ran inside to get help, yelling "Mom! Dad! Come quick!
There's a Franc in Stein!"
