Found on Drudge: America to build super weapons
The Pentagon is planning a new generation of weapons, including huge hypersonic drones and bombs dropped from space, that will allow the US to strike its enemies at lightning speed from its own territory.

cool article from canada.com about The Passion:
Mel Gibson says he attended Mass every morning while shooting his new movie, The Passion, because "we had to be squeaky clean just working on this." [...]

Send in the Penguins
"Where are the they? Aren't there penguins living up in the Ice Bay of Forochel and the frozen north? There's a whole bunch of stuff about the Lossoth, the Snowmen who helped Arvedui when he was in trouble. If Tolkien goes to the trouble of creating the equivalent of Inuit tribes living in the coldest regions of the planet, then there must be penguins somewhere. Hey, after all, he was fond of Polar Bears (remember the Father Christmas Letters?). I love penguins -- it wouldn't hurt to have a little mention of one, would it? Remember that fox that was puzzled when he saw three hobbits sleeping in a fir-wood out in the country… that should have been a penguin. He would have been puzzled too."

Isaiah had these on his blog the other day:
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel shamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." -Jack Handy

a little okaloosa history
"Okaloosa County acquired 3-miles of Santa Rosa Island in 1950. The acquisition of Okaloosa Island culminated the efforts of U.S. Representative Robert F. Sikes, who introduced the bill authorizing the transfer. The community of Destin, the world's luckiest little fishing village, was founded by Captain Leonard Destin in 1945. It adopted the ways of its New England founder."

The building's fire alarms briefly went off last night and woke me up. Reminded me of the first week in the apartment last August when they went off in three of the buildings here around 4 in the morning. Drove everybody out of their apartments — except for Josiah and Ben, who apparently prefer sleep to hearing. Some punks must've pulled the alarms, I guess trying to revive the excitement of the party that was supposed to be the grand finale to summer and a kick-off to classes.

I wrote my name in concrete today. A few months ago my roommate John found his uncle's name on a sidewalk from when he used to go to UWF in the early seventies. Wonder how long it'll be there.

Organizational Behavior is over. Good thing, too, cuz psychology is really dumb — or at least the stuff they teach us at UWF. I will say this, though. I've had really fun groups and I've had really productive groups, but the group I had in this class was both. We had a great time and got a lot of quality work done, even with one of our members going into labor the day before our final presentation. Wish all my groups could be this tight. The class was only 4 weeks, too (I think they do classes this way in Europe - I know they do in Finland, not sure bout the rest of the continent). I really liked that — most of my 16-week classes feel like such a waste of time.
