I'm Feeling Mysterious Today...

Something really cool may have happened today, although I'm going to wait until I have a little bit more confirmation before I actually reveal what it is. In the meantime, you're welcome to use the comments to speculate about what it might be, although I'm not likely to respond even if you're right; it should be interesting to see what people might come up with between now and then.

The lion lies down with the lamb: Apple has unveiled software that lets users run Windows XP on Macs.

His hobby blew up in his face...literally: In case you missed it, here's the story of the teacher in California who was using a 40mm shell as a paperweight on his desk at school; it blew up and severed part of his hand when he used it to squash a bug. (Hat tip: Shawn)

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I really miss using my thumb; I feel like such a primate!"--Yet another funny student this morning; this one had his thumb stepped on while playing soccer over the weekend, and he's sporting a cast that keeps the digit immobilized. He also lamented that he wished the cast had been made "more handi-capable," which spawned a quick discussion of how that term was invented by the PC crowd as an alternative to using the world "handicapped," although I don't know of any handicapped person, ever, who has used that term to describe him/herself.

You'll have five extra minutes to spend at Chipotle as compared to regular days?
