FRAGMENTIA 13: Bite-sized slices of life

4.01.2006

Week Of 2 April, 2006

HOW HAVE WE SURVIVED WITHOUT IT?
Scientists are working on technology to allow them to one day build atom-sized computers. This brings up all sorts of questions: How big will the stores that sell these computers be? Will there be subatomic-sized security tags on the computers to prevent people stealing them? And perhaps the most important question: Will these computers count as “one personal item” when brought onto a commercial airplane?

NECTAR OF LIFE
Things you can make with Guinness.

UNCONVENTIONAL WISDOM
Justice isn’t blind, just blindfolded. (That's a sword she's carrying, not a cane.)

OUGHTA BE A BUMPER STICKER
Honk If You Take Orders From Strangers

WHAT WEBSTER WON’T TELL YOU
Republicants
(plural noun): Like the replicants in Blade Runner, Republicants appear human but really aren’t. They are dangerously powerful, have trouble with "feelings," and should not be trusted under any circumstances.

THINGS TO PONDER
Shouldn’t menopause be called “menostop?”
