Mo' Charts

There used to be a really cool chart here showing all the weird key combinations to make all the special symbols and doo-dads you always wish you knew how to make on your computer. Unfortunately, it was too large and caused this page to take about three hours to load, so I've killed the chart off.

Current view of my Mac's dock

They say you can determine personality by what applications a person uses most frequently. I don't know who "they" are. Perhaps they don't say that at all.

Ok, if two trains are 100 miles apart, and one is going 40 mph, and the other is going 60 mph, how many feet would the yellow one have traveled in 12 minutes?

I saw the dumbest question today on Wiki.Answers. Or at least it seemed dumb to me.

"Opportunity usually dances with those who are already on the dance floor."

I take this to mean Opportunity is a dancer. I had thought Opportunity was a knocker. I have been waiting by the door all this time when I should have been out dancing. That is disappointing. I wonder how many opportunities I've missed by waiting to answer the door?

I think I'll just go out and make something happen. The heck with waiting for opportunity to knock or ask me to dance.
