Wikipedia Knows Everything March 19, 2009

Posted by Sina in : Main , add a comment

People at work seem to be amazed at how quickly I find information. I find it amazing how amazing they find this. Really.

Here are three general rules to remember:

  1. Wikipedia knows everything. No exceptions.
  2. Google is your friend. All smart people use Google.
  3. Find/Replace will save you time reading/writing. Use it.

Remember that and all the old people you know will think you know everything.

It’s Friday the 13th. Again.

  1. Thus, vampires are in order. (updated 12:16am)
  2. xkcd hasn’t updated its Friday comic as of 12:31am. Very unusual. (update 12:31am)  I just realized… the late update was probably due to daylight savings and his server not properly updating the time. (updated 9:43am)
  3. I guess this is weird. (updated 1:24pm)
  4. Strange substance found in bathroom soap dispenser. I’m pretty sure it was Bloody Mary. (update 5:30pm)

The sun sets late now
Because of daylight savings.
It is very good.

Conservapedia might be Wikipedia's evil step-brother March 7, 2009

Conservapedia informs us that “Obama is likely the first Muslim President” of the United States. They argue this because “Obama’s background, education, and outlook are Muslim, and fewer than 1% of Muslims convert to Christianity.”

But that all doesn’t matter anyway. Why? Because Obama isn’t the President of the United States. This follows from the fact that fewer than 0.0000001% of Americans have ever been the country’s President.

First Day of Work (8 months later) March 4, 2009

I’m writing an employee profile at work and this question came up, so I’ve decided to post it for my future reference:

When did you start with the ministry?

11 June 2008. It was a sunny morning and I was listening to “Here Comes the Sun” by The Beatles while enjoying an espresso from Java Joes across the street. I sat by the window but I couldn’t see outside because of the glaring sun. All I could gather was that the people walking outside were in rush to get wherever they were going and I remember wondering if I would soon be like them. I knew the espresso would make the butterflies in my stomach worse, but I needed the caffeine jump so I gulped it and went on my way…

‘Tis my first haiku,
Which may become common here.
I’ve not decided.
