I'm going through stuff in my house, to get ready for moving, throwing away junk and finding important documents, etc. And, well, it is both refreshing to clear away crud, and it can be enjoyable to find old stuff that didn't get thrown away, and sometimes embarrassing to find what hides in the corners. I just found an unopened christmas present from several years ago. And I finally found our Danish driver's licenses which we'll need. Mine is valid for another 26 years. The picture there is from my international driver's license in 1981. Gee, I loved that fake fur coat. In the same box was a stack of old papers from Denmark. Report cards from high school, bus passes, etc. And old computer papers, which are amusingly nostalgic now. My member card for The Source, a reference card for DOS 2.0, for WordStar, MultiPlan. The manual for my 300baud modem. The ad for TurboPascal I tore out of Byte. 5 1/4" floppies with programs I wrote in Basic or Pascal on my IBM PC. A hand drawn map of Colossal Cave from Adventure.

Dunno about icon. But Uber-cool. No doubt about that. Still is. :-)

Yeah, I don't know. I'm just blown away by the vague memory of having hair. Like, down my forehead.

Still have the scarf? Nice pic. I have several great pictures of my niece and nephew as children that I'll use for blackmail purposes when they are older.

Hi Mark,yes, sample size is too small and the mohted may not measure cognition closely enough versus somatic electrical activity, though this is hard to tell from the article and/or image (chores for example would appear to be physically more rigorous than homework, and yet shows up lower).But still, its an amazing image!

Heather MaloneDemocracy may allow people the ointrouppty to filter out those whom are not worthy, but that doesn't mean that the people will do that. Based on historical evidence, the people who get elected tend to be purposely less intelligent, because being intelligent makes you part of an elite,' and Americans don't like that. People who have the ability to get elected should in no way be allowed to be involved in politics because they are loud, pugnacious suck-ups with questionable motives (at best), this being proved by the fact that they can win. The founding fathers certainly did not make this country democratic, we started out as a republic, although ever since then we have pushed further and further towards democracy.
