so, i'm tickled. the one personal ad i had absolutely ANY interest in at all - well, he wrote me back tonight.
OH MY GOD HE HAS A BRAIN.
oh yeah. i do have a personal ad up. lame? probably, but it can be interesting sometimes. i've had it up for over a year now, in various stages.
i wouldnt have met 27 year old virgin software engineers from NASA if i hadn't. heh!
You don't strike me as *******.com target audience material. Why have you chosen to let this mortal breeding ground serve as your spinning wheel of fate? Perhaps you are recruiting for Project Mayhem?
from the "dont you have bigger, more pressing issues to attend to?" department:
the ACLU is going after the ohio BMV, apparently. the BMV currently reserves the right to deny personalized license plates to people if they think the phrase in question is offensive or controversial. the ACLU says its the drivers right to have anything he or she wants on the plate.
hm, i can't wait to get that plate that says 'ASSFUCK' on it.
World's Funniest Joke Revealed After Internet Vote
LONDON (Reuters) - The world's funniest joke, voted by popular demand over the Internet, was unveiled on Wednesday by the British Association for the Advancement of Science (news - web sites) (BA) after an experiment lasting three months.
Famed fictional detective Sherlock Holmes and his gruff assistant Doctor Watson pitch their tent while on a camping expedition, but in the middle of the night Holmes nudges Watson awake and questions him.
HOLMES: Watson, look up at the stars and tell me what you deduce.
WATSON: I see millions of stars, and if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it is quite likely there are some planets like earth, and if there are a few planets like earth out there there might also be life.
HOLMES: Watson, you idiot! Somebody stole our tent.
The BA said the joke was the most popular among 10,000 submitted, being chosen as the best by 47 percent of the 100,000 people from more than 70 countries who took part.

Changing Places Invention to Avoid Dinner Bores
LONDON (Reuters) - Tired of boring Christmas lunch and dinner conversations? Interested in speaking to more people during round table business meetings?
Swiss inventor Paolo Rais may have just the answer -- an 18-seater rectangular table with chairs that move so no one is trapped sitting opposite someone for too long.
``An electric motor drives two hidden chains: one hauls the chairs around while the other, beneath the wooden tabletop, pulls around wooden trays on which you place your food or documents,'' New Scientist magazine said on Wednesday.
The chairs move at a slow, steady speed of nine centimeters (3.5 inches) per minute so the diners do not feel like they are moving at all and can leave the table without any problems.
``I've written to the British royal family, because such a table would be a great way for the queen to meet all her guests at banquets,'' said Rais, a civil engineer from Lugano.
``But I have had no reply,'' he added.
