Knight Rider is back, but without the Hoff

Holy crap. They're bringing back Knight Rider. It is said to be a "Transformers-inspired reworking." Though, I'm not sure it will ever be the same without The Hoff.

Punctuation Is Everything

An english professor wrote the words:
"A woman without her man is nothing"
...on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.

All of the males in the class wrote:
"A woman, without her man, is nothing."
All the females in the class wrote:
"A woman: without her, man is nothing."
Punctuation is powerful.



This is a neat article about a Dad. An excerpt:
The thing is that he was convinced that the world was chock full of treasures that we couldn't see. We would go walking in the desert and he would pick up a stone and say that probably some Indian centuries ago used this rock in a spear. I believed him. Later I became more skeptical of these wild claims. But then I realized that Dad thinks treasures are everywhere, waiting to be found and appreciated.
