Miscellaneous Info (may or may not be relevant)


 







One of my favorite web sites (not recommended except for those with a lot of common sense): darwinawards.com Guys: If anybody knows the answer to the following question posed by the Dilbert Cartoonist, Scott Adams, let me know: "If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?"
