Because in Jordan, Friday is Sunday, so Thursday is Friday.
I encountered the following factoid the other day:
"...on average, at age 5 we engage in creative tasks 98 times a day, laugh 113 times, and ask 65 questions.
By age forty-four, the numbers fade to 2 creative tasks a day, 11 laughs, and 6 questions."
Well, that's kind of depressing, if true. On one hand, I really wonder who measured this, and how. On the other, considering myself and my kids... um, maybe.
And while I'm being mildly depressed by stuff on the Internet, here's an article that asks if google is making us stupid. (If so, then I'm in big trouble.) Also, I'm a few months late for this, but eBay has had to get rid of their old, democratic feedback system because people suck.
Is it all bad? No. Police just arrested a wanted war criminal outside of Belgrade. The body of a man of Arab descent has been discovered in a burial site in Roman-era Denmark (via Carlos). And finally, there's most awesome nerd post of the week, possibly the year.
Friday! Um, Thursday. What've you got?
