As stinky and humid as this bus is, at least I'm not stuck on the newburyport/rockport train with a 1 hour delay. I'm an optimist only through the suffering of others.

My feelings said better than I ever could. . .

I'm thinking of learning a functional programming language - suggestions? I'm looking at Haskell, Erlang, or Scala.

A woman just wrote on a starbucks cup: "smile a day keeps the doctor away. Think big ideas, win lottery open own art gallery" and then directed her companion to deliberately litter it. She then went back to counting her rosary. Oh, magical thinking: how I don't understand you.
