I have noticed that many threads just go in totally random directions so I thought I would make a thread just for your random thoughts. Ill get the ball rolling "Soda cans kill more penguins a day then cigarettes kill donkeys"...maybe that was too random.

But if we conclude that chaos has come from the order of a coherent thread, what is to say that a coherent thread will not form from the randomness that is this thread?

With that said, here's my little excerpt from /dev/random:

things can't change if you watch them, but they might not even exist if you don't, so if you're not watching things but God is watching things they they'll exist but they don't change unless God blinks really really really quickly...

We had a little accident here at casa-del-druid today, someone spilled some water on the carpet. While the various adults were flailing about uselessly, my 3 1/2 year old trotted off to the cupboard, and returned with a handfull of towels to clean up the spill.

After I'd mopped up the water, I bent over, gave my girl a hug, and thanked here very much for being so helpful. You should have seen her face light up, it was breath-taking. *sigh*

Driving over a cell phone is a much faster way to get rid of it than dropping it ten times.

Don't fear them. Fear the fact that any site you visit can get that information, and potentially log it *without* giving you any warning or notification..

Um, just a comment from a paranoid old man, but your sister is a babe, and she's put her photos and home address on the web.
Not smart.
I'm far less likely to attrack stalkers than she is, and my web CV doesn't have address info.

I have no idea how to change the speedometer in a 1963 Corvair Monza. And no matter how much they tell you, the 1975 Corvette's radiator shroud is not simply "pull-out, slip-in". Not at all.

Oh yes, and I forgot. That's actually a webcam, and Spungo's probably on the other side watching you. [Razz] [Big Grin]

It's basically impossible to tie one's shoe laces with one hand. Most other day-to-day activities range from "easy" (putting on socks) to "very difficult" (zipping a coat). Buttons are merely "difficult".

Some food preparation is not too bad, especially if you can use scissors, or your teeth plus one hand, to pull open the bags and boxes. Dish washing is feasible if you can "trap" the soiled item against the side of the sink to hold it still. Spreading butter or peanut butter with the secondary hand is surprisingly difficult.

Opening "child-proof" medicine containers (of the "push down & turn" variety) might be possible with a vise. If you don't have one handy, you will need assistance.

Typing is slower. Much, much slower.
