This N' That Thursday

Six degrees of why celebrities can be more useful than people give them credit for, plus the badge thing is a great idea. Now if I was only good at the game.

And then I was bummed. He put up a great battle and ended up with the time of his life. I worked at Universal when he was suing Paramount and I knew exactly how they tried to prove that Coming to America didn't make a profit. What a crock! I worked in many different departments and you wouldn't believe the stuff they write off. Rest in peace Art, you will be missed.

A Prada phone that mimics the iPhone? Hmm, the price is much different and I bet the quality of the software will not be a match. The devil is in the details, but it might force a price drop on the iPhone. And this would be a good thing, but I think it is going to take much more than this to rock Apple's boat.

But do blue eyed women prefer blue eyed men? What about people with green or gray eyes? Selecting for recessive traits sounds so Third Reichian, doesn't it? Evolution or prejudice?

While I agree that everyone involved in this incident is stupid beyond belief, thinking that it is criminal is even more so. Holding your wee for a Wii brought to mind the turkey episode of WKRP. Certainly not as funny, but oh so true. Every time they come up with a new Darwin contest, I am reminded that turkeys will never fly but stupidity always repeats.

No kidding? They have to do what they are told? Not exactly news.

    Military have to do what there told eh. Who would have ever thunk it!
