Fifteen Daily Nibbles March 6 2009 Released A Day Late

Here is Friday's serving of finger foods for thought:
  • Life is neither all fate nor all self-determination.
  • Today's Giant of Literature is Balzac.
  • One of the most aggravating things for any car owner who cares about his vehicle is bird poop hitting your car (eew) . You always wonder, "Why my car, out of all the others in this parking lot?"
  • Soundwave (the original, G1 character) simply had THE coolest voice effect in the entire Transformers universe.
  • txtmstrjoe's Girl Friday You May Not Know is Audrey Tatou.
  • A major frustration in my life is to have my sense of priorities and ability to organize still be overwhelmed by various responsibilities.
  • There is a very thin line between patriotic love for one's country and ultra-nationalism.
  • My own sense of self-doubt (and, by extension, self-confidence) comes and goes, as if with the tides.
  • Lance Armstrong is a far greater sportsman than Michael Jordan ever was, in my opinion.
  • It's incredibly very easy to be a critic; it's unbelievably difficult to be a GOOD critic.
  • I find it extremely jingoistic when some people said that foreign films (i.e., films not made in the U.S.A.) shouldn't even be up for consideration for Best Picture or any of the other major categories in the Academy Awards; far worse is the suggestion (I actually heard a few yo-yos suggest this) that there shouldn't be a Best Foreign Film category.
  • Too many people are afraid to at least explore unconventional solutions.
  • A dear old friend sent me this: I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts. -- Will Rogers
  • The word of the day is: Kilobyte.
  • This blog entry is a day late ; hopefully, it's not a dollar short too.

Have a great weekend.
