hobbitblue on the question, “Who is the Greatest American? ”Discovery Channel (& AOL) have a programme to vote for the Greatest American. In amongst Roosevelt and Kennedy and Rosa Parks and MLK we find… Dubya. And Reagan.”
From copperwise: Can someone explain to me why critical thinking skills are such a scarce commodity? Is there a finite amount of logic in the universe that has been depleted? Are we all running off of a half dozen or so brains that we have to pass around or sign up for on a timeshare basis?
From nadinelet: there’s one thing that really gets under my skin. People who use their Art and their Muse as an excuse to write what they want, act how they want, blow off commitments (except the ones that flatter their Art, of course), and generally act like a flake, or an asshole.

How quirkyalone are you?
Your score was 105. Very quirkyalone:
Relatives may give you quizzical looks, and so may friends, but you know in your heart of hearts that you are following your inner voice. Though you may not be romancing a single person, you are romancing the world. Celebrate your freedom on National Quirkyalone Day, February 14th!
Friday Five from everybody

1. Something that is red: My “Gospel in, garbage out” button from ComputerWorld. It’s been over my desk since 1983.
2. Something that is shiny: My clear glass teapot from gramina
3: Something that is ugly: The stack of work next to me.
5. Something that is sharp: My scissors.
