Miscellaneous: January 2001 Archives

I have conducted a formal study and have come to the following conclusion: I am less likely to take out the trash out to the street in the morning for the garbage collector if the air temperature if very low. I believe this behavior might also extend to other forms of "bad" weather, such as rain, snow, extreme heat; more study is needed.

Oh, and by the way, I heard only about three people say that this was the start of the new millennium. You know what that means? It means that we were right last year when we said that 2000 was the start of the new millennium. There is no calendrical definition of when the millenniums start and end. They are entirely arbitrary. It is determined by only one thing: societal convention about which periods of 1,000 years they should cover. Society has spoken. Let that be a lesson to all of you.

"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
