I’ve been reading stuff on MentalFloss.com, which is where “knowledge junkies get their fix”. I don’t know if I’m a knowledge junkie, but I do like that stuff (knowledge). I came across a few interesting articles.
It turns out that Green Bean Casserole, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Wedding Registries all have one thing in common. Are wedding registries a necessity of capitalism? Uh, yeah. That way, we don’t end up with 9 toasters, a condition that puts any new marriage to the test.
If you’ve seen the movie A Beautiful Mind, you know the story of Dr. John Nash. But did you know that Nash is part of RAND? Or, like me, did you not know of such a thing as RAND?
In unrelated news, I was sort-of running on a treadmill on Saturday and, mid-stride, it stopped. While I didn’t run through a wall (as seen on most any animated media), I was certainly surprised. I was also reminded that putting that kind of stress on any home appliance isn’t fair.
