Today I discovered twice during typing a post on this forum that typing ctrl-W results in closing the browser. :P

Also I learned that, after a night of heavy boozing, you'll wake up hung over, but with a much lower voice.

Fish can pee. And they're a lot smarter than most people think.

An ambigram is a word you can read from more than 1 direction.

The word "attic" derives from the ancient Greek region of Attica.
(...)shortened from attic storey (1724). The term Attic order in classical architecture meant a small, square decorative column of the type often used in a low storey above a building's main facade, a feature associated with the region around Athens (see Attic). The word then was applied to "a low decorative facade above the main story of a building" (1696), and it came to mean the space enclosed by such a structure. The modern use is via Fr. attique. "An attic is upright, a garret is in a sloping roof" [Weekley].

Stupid people are everywhere.

Just today, we found out we've been paying somebody else's school kid insurance fee for 2 kids since 1998, because of a computer error.

Terry Gilliam sci-fi flick. One of my favorites, definitely see it.
In the film, a whole Kafka-esque series of mishaps occur after a bug (a real bug, not a metaphorical one) gets caught in some governmental printing machine, causing a document to read "Buttle" instead of "Tuttle".

One mystery has been solved...

That mosquito came off my wall at my father's hand. He saw the picture of the skeeter and decided to take some cleanser and get it off without telling me about it.

Very interesting day today, learned about two things...

1). Took Rose in for lasik surgery, It was really neat cuz I got to watch. Everything was so easy to see magnified because the microscope camera thing made a magnified image of Roses' eye on the screen. The actual laser process took only maybe 40 seconds on each eye, the prep tool 3 minutes. In 20 the whole procedure was done, both eyes. She was a little nreved, but didn't feel anything and although here eyes were mega dialated, she could instantly walk around without her glasses, (and man, she had some heavy duty glasses before). She has to heal up now, especially the first day, keeping her eyes closed as much as possible, (to keep dirt out while the flap heals), and by tomorrow her vision will be very improved.

Image

2). The other thing I learned today is my job just got saved. My whole divisionhas known the end is coming when the contracts run out. Most at my company have been outsourced, personnel dropping from 125, 000 to now 25, 000. It was all over.

Then I heard something and just got confirmed that I would be one of 4 from my group who is going to work in a pilot program for another business unit. This is a really hot new product that's gonna kick ass, it networks together and manages images and workflow for machines used in the prepress steps of the printing industry. It's a division I used to be in so I know the industry and there is huge room for growth.

I went from knowing I was getting canned to "my job is saved" for however long I want it. it's gonna take a few days to sink in, we've all known our days were numbered for so long (we started a 5 year countdown 2 years ago), that I dont yet know how to think another way. A weight's been removed and I'm really excited, this shit turns me on(:

I never thought anything like this would happen, I knew we were all gonners...you never know when things will change dramatically for the better.

Here's a web page on the product, "Prinergy," The Prinergy system is the server in the middle that ties everything together.

I learned that my left ear holds enough water to deaden hearing for a couple of days. Feels as if I have a marshmallow stuck in it. :P

Since swimming last week, I haven't been able to get my hearing in that ear back. I've even tried hydorgen peroxide, ear wax remover, & standing on my head without any luck.

Such a kick in the dick :P

Have you spoken with an authority? Getting ill in most cases is a warning sign that something is going wrong. But do not trust the majority of doctors. Though, medicine is progressing swiftly in the last few years. Ill-luck is, the guild of medical practitioners lag behind. Heard of a guy who went for a treatment to cure his nose bleeding and found himself with pain in the other nostril as well.

Wish i could help. Maybe some home-spun cure, herbs, believing? = strength of the mind (lying in the sun? or a tour through the saunas?)

The thing with hydrogen peroxide is heavy duty (ear-wax remover is another one) Ears are helping themselves, also healthy eating. Know only one application for above-mentioned attempt, changing into James Blond that is. (old hair-do trix)

--a well-inclined apprentice quacksalver wishing you ... patience.

Found out something that I knew already, but I forget it every year, until summer comes around in Texas and it reminds me...

104 degrees is freaking hot!
