Totally random thoughts...

...because it's been a crazy week and life is all jumbled together. Nothing bad, just a blur. So I'll string together a few on-my-mind items in a "stream of consciousness" fashion and see what happens.

1) How can peace exist in the Middle East if: a) both (all?) parties aren't committed to the concept and b) the peacemakers are killed, especially from within?

2) How can someone with a straight face say someone should act a certain way and then, when in the same situation, himself act totally opposite?

3) The person who called me "worthless" has been praising me all week. Go figure...

4) Which is more important, renovating old buildings or buying new pet washers?

5) How can Reversi (aka Othello) still be unsolved? On a more interesting note, why not expand to a 10x10 or larger grid? The same for checkers, chess, and other "confined" games?

6) If so many folks think that NASA's space missions are outdated then: a) why keep wanting to fix the Hubble Telescope and b) why not have them solve the energy problem instead? Seems like they have some pretty smart folks there...

7) Total hypothesis, and probably plenty of books on the subjects: what if Abraham Lincoln had either a) lost in 1860 or 1864, or b) not been assassinated?

8) I wish the interstate circle around the Twin Cities was light rail...

9) Despite the pounding the old retirement fund has taken this past year, life is actually pretty good. Helps that the money isn't a priority...

10) Where will I be in five years: a) still here full-time in MN; b) part-time in either AZ or CO; c) full-time in AZ or CO; d) on the lam somewhere else (TX perhaps?); or e) Heaven, Hell or elsewhere? We shall see!

And so to bed soon, as the snow is expected to be flying this upcoming morning rush hour and I want to be at work on time to leave for north on time to... You get the idea. Have a fine weekend, everyone!
