Miscellany

I so should not have read One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest whilst in this job. Now whenever I read an article about Occupational Therapists helping patients return to productive working lives as useful members of society, I think "Yes - putting them back in THE COMBINE!"

Ciao have awarded me a tenner for an insightful review of the above in which I postulate that it wouldn't be half the novel it is if Ken Kesey hadn't been out of his tree on acid for much of its composition.

I learn from dailyanimals that the Latin name for the squirrel family is spermophilus. Perfectly innocent, of course - it just means they love nuts. Wait, that's not making it any better...

Lastly, I give you this source code from fridayfive.org:

<script language="JavaScript">
function ChristIsImmanentInAllThings(youBet, justInCase){
thatsFunny = ('coconutsKillMorePeopleThanSharks' + (youBet));
noMoreThankYou = ('thankYourMother' + (youBet));
if( document.getElementById ) {
if( document.getElementById(thatsFunny).style.display ) {
if( justInCase != 0 ) {
document.getElementById(thatsFunny).style.display = "block";
document.getElementById(noMoreThankYou).style.display = "none";
} else { document.getElementById(thatsFunny).style.display = "none";
document.getElementById(noMoreThankYou).style.display = "block"; }
} else { location.href = justInCase;
return true; }
} else { location.href = justInCase;
return true; }
}
</script>

Apparently some people will copy and paste anything.
