New Year's effect

Jan. 10th, 2005 | 05:49 pm

There's a well known spike in gym memberships due to new year's resolutions. I wonder how far that carries over to other industries? Today I noticed far more 6 inch subs being purchased at Subway than ever before.

Rocket Scientist

Jan. 10th, 2005 | 06:02 pm

Today I sarcastically referred to someone as a "real rocket scientist", as a way to mock their intelligence. I wonder what the perceived water mark of genius will be in the future? Recombinant geneticist? Hydrogen miner? Creative accountant? I also wonder what it was in the past? "Boy, he's a real catapault engineer." Or "What an arch wizard!"
