Amusing, but kind of weird quotes... A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother. What is a committee? A group of the unwilling, picked from the unfit, to do the unnecessary. -- Richard Harkness, The New York Times, 1960 Slogan of 105.9, the classic rock radio station in Chicago: "Of all the radio stations in Chicago ... we're one of them." With every passing hour our solar system comes forty-three thousand miles closer to globular cluster 13 in the constellation Hercules, and still there are some misfits who continue to insist that there is no such thing as progress. -- Ransom K. Madness takes its toll. The graduate with a Science degree asks, "Why does it work?" Karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can, using only their hands and feet, make some of the worst movies in the history of the world. -- Dave Barry I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants. -- A. 668: The Neighbor of the Beast Boundary, n.
Fixing Cognitive Distortions Cognitive distortions have a way of playing havoc with our lives. If we let them. This kind of “stinkin’ thinkin’” can be “undone,” but it takes effort and lots of practice — every day. If you want to stop the irrational thinking, you can start by trying out the exercises below. 1. Identify Our Cognitive Distortion. We need to create a list of our troublesome thoughts and examine them later for matches with a list of cognitive distortions. 2. A thorough examination of an experience allows us to identify the basis for our distorted thoughts. 3. An alternative to “self-talk” that is harsh and demeaning is to talk to ourselves in the same compassionate and caring way that we would talk with a friend in a similar situation. 4. Instead of thinking about our problem or predicament in an either-or polarity, evaluate things on a scale of 0-100. 5. We need to seek the opinions of others regarding whether our thoughts and attitudes are realistic. 6. 7. 8. Reference: Burns, D.D. (1989). Dr.
Online Schools - K-12, Colleges and Grad Schools Todd Lamb Notes From Chris Gallery Welcome to the “ Notes From Chris” gallery. These are notes that I post around New York City from a mysterious man named Chris. Chris wants to do tedious things with people. He also has lots of problems. “ Notes From Chris” is a project started by Todd Lamb in 2008. See a YouTube video of the notes being read on stage in NYC and an interview in the Village Voice . See a video about them on Rocketboom and a selection of them on Funny or Die .

Sample Searches: Anthropologists find American heads are getting larger White Americans' heads are getting bigger. That's according to research by forensic anthropologists at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Lee Jantz, coordinator of UT's Forensic Anthropology Center (FAC); Richard Jantz, professor emeritus and former director of the FAC; and Joanne Devlin, adjunct assistant professor, examined 1,500 skulls dating back to the mid-1800s through the mid-1980s. They noticed U.S. skulls have become larger, taller and narrower as seen from the front and faces have become significantly narrower and higher. The researchers cannot pinpoint a reason as to why American head shapes are changing and whether it is primarily due to evolution or lifestyle changes. "The varieties of changes that have swept American life make determining an exact cause an endlessly complicated proposition," said Lee Jantz. The researchers found that the average height from the base to the top of the skull in men has increased by eight millimeters (0.3 inches).
Generation Generation is the act of producing offspring. In kinship terminology, it is a structural term designating the parent-child relationship. It is also known as biogenesis, reproduction, or procreation in the biological sciences. Etymology The word generation comes from the Latin generāre, meaning "to beget". Familial generation Five generations of one family—a child with her mother, grandmother, her great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. A familial generation is a group of humans constituting a single step in the line of descent from an ancestor. In developed nations the average familial generation length is in the high 20s and has even reached 30 years in some nations. Factors such as greater industrialisation and demand for cheap female labour, urbanisation, delayed first pregnancy and a greater uncertainty in relationship stability have all contributed to the increase of the generation length from the late 18th century to the present.

Seize the Day Seize the Day by Derek Lin Here's a puzzle for you: What do you see in this grid above? What do you think it represents? Okay, it's not a difficult puzzle. The answer is "one year." The columns represent days and the rows are the twelve months of the year, so each day of the year occupies one square. "Okay," you ask, "so what's the big deal?" When I look at this grid I get a chill because I'm used to thinking about one year as a long time. This grid is the layout of a typical table blotter calendar that you can find in any office supply store. In any event, confronting the grid and contemplating its meaning is a sobering experience for me. How many more grids do you have? If I am lucky. When you see it this way, you come to the inescapable conclusion that, indeed, life is too short.
