Alternative Fuels... - [10:54 AM]

Alternative fuels ARE the new frontier. Now that someone has managed to put a privately funded project into space it's time someone actually figured out how to fix our reliance on crude oil, don't you think?

Whatever happened to hydrogen powered vehicles? Are we still working on it? I'm certain someone is, but these days all people seem to talk about are Presidential debates and Iraq. Which are of course important. But since we are the largest consumer of crude based products and Global Gorillas are winning in Iraq we need to do something and do it SOON.

Our next President needs to add this 'problem' to his HUGEMUNGO list of stuff to fix.

Movie line of the week - [9:46 AM]

Watchin' it on the big screen!The movie I chose to pick this line from was a given after watching it on Saturday. It's chock-full-o-good rambling, endless, funny, freaky at times, rambling. I enjoyed it.

Here's the line...

...and if you forget one thing I will have you shaved, sterilized, and destroyed!

Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here.

Pet peeve - [9:20 AM]

I was just walking by a conference room, and of course I looked in I couldn't help it. I noticed a bunch of folks sitting around the table with their laptops open. I HATE THAT! It's so rude to bring a laptop into a meeting and sit there banging away on the keyboard while someone else talks. I noticed that a LOT at Microsoft as well. Annoying is what it is, distracting. I'll make sure when I schedule a meeting to include a notice that asks people to leave their laptops at their desks. Now if you show up at a meeting of mine with a laptop you'll have two choices; put the laptop away or leave. If it's not my meeting you can do whatever you please, I'll just sit there quietly gnashing my teeth.

Can people no longer write, you know using a piece of paper and a pencil?
