36 Greatest Bill Gates quotes, just for Apple fanboys
No idea if Bill actually said all these or not but I like;
“I have 100 billion dollars… You realize I could spend 3 million dollars a day, every day, for the next 100 years? And that’s if I don’t make another dime. Tell you what-I’ll buy your right arm for a million dollars. I give you a million bucks, and I get to sever your arm right here.”
A little too violent I think. 🙂
The not that bitter King of New Orleans got a quiz in which he gives the real answers to the U.S. citizenship test.
For 605 million pounds, what would you expect a modern Royal Navy warship to have? Modern weapons systems, and all the latest technology certainly. The HMS Daring has the best crew quarters ever on a British warship. The individual cabins have CD player, internet access, five channel audio and yes iPod charging stations. The new ship with enter service in 2009. Hopefully the iPod connectors will still be the same in three years….
Well, Survivor starts tonight. The Johnson City Press has another article on Melinda Hyder from Elizabethton. From the commercials, this game seems substantially different from earlier editions. Should be interesting to watch.

&*@#! language on the rise – Teachers, students say swearing is getting worse.
My mom can probably back this story up, she sees behavior in her kindergarten kids now that used to be only in higher grades. I have to disagree with parts of this article. “Sucks” is not a swear word. Sure, it’s not the best English but it’s hardly at the same level as the classic four letter words. I’m of the option that swearing has it’s place. Sometimes you just really can’t express yourself any other way. But use those types of words too much and they loose their effectiveness.
I did pretty well on the test, the questions are pretty focused on American Library History, I’m pretty sure the questions I missed were the put Dewey and LC in the right order. I’m not that good of a cataloger. 🙂 Questions about the test, such as the right answers,can be directed here.

The new Dr. Who series (BBC site) has been playing in the UK for a while now. It’s going to be shown in the US on the SCI-FI channel.
I remember watching the original Dr. Who (BBC site) on PBS. It’s the first sci-fi I ever saw on TV, although it’s probably tied with The Incredible Hulk for that honor. I’m looking forward to seeing the new Dr. Who.
The latest edition of Survivor starts February 2. It has yet another person for my original neck of the woods, Melinda. The Johnson City Press has an article abut her.
