Quote of the day: A library doesn’t need windows. A library is a window. by Stewart Brand
Birthday of the day: Muhammad bin Qasim; Muhammad bin Qasim Al-Thaqafi (Arabic: محمد بن قاسم) (c. 31 December 695–18 July 715) was an Umayyad general who, at the age of 17, began the conquest of the Sindh and Punjab regions along the Indus River (now a part of Pakistan) for the Umayyad Caliphate. He was born in the city of Taif (in modern day Saudi Arabia). Qasim’s conquest of Sindh and Punjab laid the foundations of Islamic rule in the Indian subcontinent.
Joke of the day: A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to go faster. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. ‘There’s no way they can catch a Mercedes,’ he thought to himself and went faster. The needle hit 90, 100…. Then the reality of the situation hit him. ‘What am I doing?’ he thought and pulled over. The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. ‘It’s been a long day, this is the end of my shift and it’s Friday the 13th. I don’t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.’ The guy thinks for a second and says, ‘Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back!’ ‘Have a nice weekend,’ said the officer.
