Quote of the day: A library doesn’t need windows. A library is a window. by Stewart Brand
Birthday of the day: Emperor Nijo; Emperor Nijō (二条天皇 Nijō-tennō) (July 31, 1143 – September 5, 1165) was the 78th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. His reign spaned the years from 1158 through 1165.
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.
Thought of the day: Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don’t recognize them.
