60% of the time, it works every time

One of my favorite quotes from my favorite movies, this is now the motto of our application team. This is due to sketchy installs. When the install is successful (60% of the time), our product works. When the installs don't work, it doesn't work. A correlation could be made to the fact that our installs are outsourced, couldn't it?

Head On! Apply directly to your head, which may be found up yer ass.

Head On! Apply directly to the forehead. Or don't because it won't make a bit of difference. This wiki entry shows that there's barely anything in this product. If you buy this and rub it on your head, you might as well rub a candle on your head. Or anything really. It's a placebo. Incredible.

Of course, there are two sinus cavities in your forehead and maybe that's why it works... Or doesn't.

It might as well be Head-On, developed by the Hanso Foundation

The genius of my four year old daughter, pt 1

My daughter is a special person. And like most parents, I really believe that's true. Luckily, in my case, it is. I think she has a kind of bright and glowing personality that others gravitate toward. And I really hope she never loses that. In fact, I'm going to try as hard as I can to ensure she doesn't.

Here's an example. She's funny. Here's what I consider her first real joke. She told it to me when I was tucking her in the other night:

Emma: Dad, I wish I had ten noses.
Me: Well, what would you do with ten noses if you had them? (of course as she's a little girl, I'm expecting something along the lines of 'Smell lots of flowers')
Emma: Pick them... (giggling)

See? Funny. Just like her parents. And so endeth another Dad's attempt to prove that his child is special. Of course, those other Dad's are fools, because my Emma really is. At least to me.
