What's my Name?

I was named after the main character of "The Adventurers" by Harold Robbins. The character was supposedly based on a well-known playboy-diplomat who lived during the author's time. The first chapter of the book is an epilogue where it tells you that the protagonist died early in his life. This is what makes the book special. Every passage, every moment matters because the hero will die before his time. Definitely a very good book to read... This is one of the better books of Harold Robbins.

Joke of the Day

I encountered this while configuring my gadgets in the Google Desktop:

In the human body, which organ is in charge?

All the organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was in charge.

The brain said: "I should be in charge, because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen."

"I should be in charge," said the heart, "because I pump the blood and circulate oxygen all over the body, so without me you'd all waste away."

"I should be in charge," said the stomach, "because I process food and give all of you energy."

"I should be in charge," said the rectum, "because I'm responsible for waste removal."

All the other body parts laughed at the rectum and insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight. Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, and the blood was toxic. Eventually the other organs gave in. They all agreed that the rectum should be the boss.

The moral of the story?

You don't have to be smart or important to be in charge... just an *sshole.

Looks like the Legend found it funny too...


By the way, the Shaman has an interesting post...

Everyone has a dark side...


You are 85% Rational, 28% Extroverted, 71% Brutal, and 71% Arrogant. You are the Sociopath! As a result of your cold, calculating rationality, your introversion (and ability to keep quiet), your brutality, and your arrogance, you would make a very cunning serial killer. You are confident and capable of social interaction, but you prefer the silence of dead bodies to the loud, twittering nitwits you normally encounter in your daily life. You care very little for the feelings of others, possibly because you are not a very emotional person. You are also very calculating and intelligent, making you a perfect criminal mastermind. Also, you are a very arrogant person, tending to see yourself as better than others, providing you with a strong ability to perceive others as weak little animals, so tiny and small. You take great pleasure in the misery of others, and there is nothing sweeter to you than the sweet glory of using someone else's shattered failure to project yourself to success. Except sugar. That just may be sweeter. In short, your personality defect is the fact that you could easily be a sociopath, because you are calculating, unemotional, brutal, and arrogant.

To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more BRUTAL than gentle.

4. You are more ARROGANT than humble.


Your exact opposite is the Hippie.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Spiteful Loner, the Smartass, and the Capitalist Pig.

Partied Too Hard...

I'm too old for this fun stuff... That last glass of brandy hit me hard... I'll have to remember not to drink it straight down next time. Three grown men shouldn't try to finish off a bottle of Fundador in ten minutes after they had all sorts of alcoholic drinks all night. Luckily, no one was hurt. Sorry for the damage done and many thanks to our guardian angel.

But hey, it was really fun...he he he

Now I'll try to live it down.

What the...

From Reuters:

Eternal embrace? Couple still hugging 5,000 years on

"A pair of human skeletons lie entwined at an Neolithic archaelogical dig site near Mantova, Italy, in a photo released February 6, 2007. In a Valentines Day gift to the country, scientists said they are determined to jointly remove and preserve the remains of the couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, their arms still wrapped around each other in an enduring embrace."
