Thoughts for the Day
Wednesday, 2007 November 28 - 10:21 pm
Three random, unrelated thoughts that I had today.

THOUGHT #1: I realized today that I have a heretofore unappreciated superpower: I can determine exactly how long refrigerated leftovers need to be microwaved to reheat them properly, to within 5 second accuracy. Half of yesterday's steak along with some vegetables? Exactly 1 minute 15 seconds. (My nemesis: foods that have been partially or completely frozen. They throw off the formula.)

THOUGHT #2: Hey web browsers: What part of "block pop-up windows" don't you understand? How is it that some sites STILL manage to pop up ad windows?

THOUGHT #3: Where did the expression "feeling your oats" come from? Does it have anything to do with testicles, or is it actually referring to the grain? (Note: I had this thought while standing at the urinal. Not that you needed to know that.)

From Answers.com:
1. Feel frisky or animated, as in School was out, and they were feeling their oats. This usage alludes to the behavior of a horse after having been fed. [Early 1800s]
2. Display self-importance, as in He was feeling his oats, bossing everyone around. [Mid-1800s]

Right now I'm feeling my Clif bar, which is the first thing I've eaten since ~9 last night.

Ken -- that's a great superpower. And great to realize you have. Last night someone was telling me about Vonnegut's wampeters and karasses. I wonder if you'll meet your fellow micromagicians in heaven?

Oh and I hate ZEDO.
