I had it from my father.”  – Henry VIII

I woke this morning to news that North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-un, has threatened the U.S. with a nuclear attack.  What?!?!  I guess the kid is upset at proposed U.N. sanctions in response to their latest nuclear test.  All I know is that a hyperactive, testosterone-filled, 29 year old child should not be leading an entire country with nuclear weapons at its disposal.  Crazy dictator.

“The slaves of chance, and flies
Of every wind that blows.”  – Winter’s Tale

Last Thursday a man in Florida, asleep in his bedroom in his very own home, was suddenly swallowed up by a 60 foot sinkhole that opened up beneath his bed.  Could that be any more other-wordly, science-fictiony unbelievable?  We paltry human beings, we measly bags of flesh; in vain we put up sticks of wood and concrete to try and protect ourselves from the world.  We could all be swallowed up by sinkholes at any time, without any notice.  What a truly frightening thought.

Marissa Mayer

“Lowliness is young ambition’s ladder,
Whereto the climber-upward turns his face;
But when he once attains the upmost round,
He then unto the ladder turns his back,
Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees
By which he did ascend.”  – Julius Caesar

How disappointing of Marissa Mayer.  The new Yahoo! CEO has decided that telecommuting doesn’t work (and in a tech company!).  That and her recent comments about how easy motherhood is (well yes, if you’re rich and can build a nursery next door to your office) has sealed it for me – I don’t like her and I think she’s going to be an awful leader.  If you can’t put yourself in other people’s shoes, if you can’t understand the need for certain options in circumstances other than your own, then your blind, selfish, and ineffective.
