Is there a connection to the fact that Delaware has the most registered corporations per capita and the most registered sex offenders per capita of any state in the union?  Just trying to figure that one out....  :urcrazy;

The reason education is so important is because otherwise we'd all believe the idiots we keep electing.

I'm fresh out of random thoughts tonight.. had a good one last night, though..

I had absentmindedly let the last bit of ice in my iced capp melt.  The liquid in the bottom of the cup looked like something that would be in the bottom of a bucket after a rainstorm, but I knew that once I sucked it up into the straw, it would taste so good

My random thoughts for the day are: I feel fat today, I hate cleaning this bridcage, I can't keep up with it. Why is my husband so depressed since he returned from D? Is he mad at me or something? How can a teenager sleep so much? these finances lately have been quite stressful, I don't have the motovation to get in the shower.

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. --Dire Straits

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" but "That's funny..." --Isaac Asimov

Yesterday I was a dog. Today I'm a dog. Tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There's so little hope for advancement. --Snoopy

The objective of all dedicated product support employees should be to thoroughly analyze all situations, anticipate all problems prior to their occurrence, have answers for these problems, and move swiftly to solve these problems when called upon. However, when you are up to your ass in alligators, it is difficult to remind yourself that your initial objective was to drain the swamp. --This was on the front page of my dad's training journal from when he was training at Michelin in France to be a quality inspector in 1972.  I do not know why I have this in my possession.

From a dead sleep, I can hit my snooze alarm in pitch dark, from halfway across the bed, on the first try every time.  So how come I couldn't ever Pin the Tail on the Donkey?

According to Mara Hvistendahl, author of Unnatural Selection, the practice of selectively aborting girls in countries like China and India means that 163 million girls who should have been born in the last 30 years were not.

Just where do all those single, first-born sons expect to find a wife, I wonder?
