A brief meditation on October 12, 1999.
It's not intended to be funny. Just
something to think about. Nick
Y2K? We know about that. H6KKK was born today, they say. The powers that
be (or claim to be) have declared that human number six billion was born
today. This certainly could be true. If not, the guess is only off by a
week or so, OK, maybe a month or so.
I can remember when the earth's population was described as 5.5 billion.
As of today it's 6 billion, more or less. Actually, that's more. A news
report reminded me that it the earth's population was 3 billion back in
1960. So that means including wars and famines and everything, the number
of people on this planet doubled in just under 30 years.
If the growth rate continues at this just-over-2% annual increase,
then in 2030 we can expect to have TWELVE BILLION on this planet.
And may of you will live to see this --- if you call that living!

Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun.
But I have never been able to make out the numbers.
We say the cause of perfume disappearing is evaporation. Evaporation
gets blamed for a lot of things people forget to put the top on.
I am not sure how clouds get formed.
But the clouds know how to do it,
and that is the important thing.
Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it
on a dog's tongue will kill the strongest man.
Thunder is a rich source of loudness.
Isotherms and isobars are even more
important than their names sound.
It is so hot in some parts of the world

A man is driving with his wife at his side
and his mother-in-law in the backseat.
The women don't leave him alone. His
mother-in-law says, "You're driving too fast!"
His wife says, "Stay more to the left."
After ten mixed orders, the man turns to his wife
and asks, "Who's driving this car - you or your mother?"
