New boss, and Well DUH! calendar entries  
New boss starts today--it's been a while since we've had a boss. . .

Well DUH entries from the weekend follow below. Also, while I really like Harry Nilsson's version of Everybody's Talkin', The Beautiful South's treatment of it has to be my favorite treatment of it. It was a sad thing to have missed them performing it on Trio (when Trio was still on the air, and before we had TiVo).

Today's entry:
They Had to Go to School for This?

In 1993, a Yale divinity student and ten translators converted the Bible into Klingon. (Memo to hard-working college students: There are no Klingons outside of the TV show Star Trek)

From Sunday:
Dumb Plays in the Face of Fate

In 1991, the Sony Corporation decided to give a lifetime achievement award to ragtime piano player Eubie Blake. The company invited the musician to the ceremony, with the exec in charge of the affair predicting it would be "an uplifting experience." It would have been amazingly uplifting since Blake had been dead for eight years by then.

From Saturday:
Dumb Ways to Die

In 1901, Maud Willard threw herself over the Niagara Falls in a barrel, but the fall didn't kill her as it has other daredevils. What got Maud? She forced her dog into the barrel with her. The dog pressed its nose up against th barrel's single air vent, and Maud suffocated.

From Friday:
All Is Stupid in Love and War

In 1996, a Pennsylvania man was arrested for harassment because every time he saw his ex-wife he oinked at her.
 
 
Current Mood: okayokay
Current Music: The Beautiful South - Everybody's Talkin'

dude what more practical thing could you do than put the Bible in a geeks native language. I mean all the cool people walk around speaking Klingon. For example the cool kid in Garden State that was a Knight at medeval times.
