Odd Meetings, Relay Races, and Quotes

Wow, so John and I ran into some kid who was high. We were just talking and this kid randomly walks up to us and starts talking. I'm pretty sure my 'wtf?' face was on quite firmly, but he definitely wasn't seeing it. He informed us that he was intoxicated (I was tempted to go 'really? no shit! I couldn't tell...'). Then he talked to us for a few minutes (didn't really actually convey much of anything, but certainly spoke for that entire time) and then finally left with a couple of others. Needless to say, that was interesting :). I laughed about it for a bit after that. Ahh, amusing night.

In other news, IBM has retaken the fastest supercomputer title. This is the third switch in that title in the past month or so. It's almost as if they're playing a relay race. Quite amusing :)

And finally, a wonderful quote from Babylon 5:
Delenn: This is Ambassador Delenn of the Minbari. Babylon 5 is under our protection, withdraw or be destroyed!
Captain: Negative. We have authority here. Do not force us to engage your ship.
Delenn: Why not?! Only one human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else.
- Ambassador Delenn, "Severed Dreams"

That's all for the moment. Check out - it's pretty cool.
