Hey I'm in quite a mood this morning. On our internal workgroup I just called Radio 7.1 "a bitch with an attitude." I wasn't paying it a compliment. That's part of the We Make Shitty Software meme.

If only the same were true of people!

One more thing. We Make Bitchy Software. And so do you!

"Seem to think" --> a sign of weak philosophy.

Here's an interesting game to play while watching reports on TV about the war in Afghanistan. Count the number of times they say "on the ground." You might be amazed.
