The latest Nayla-ism:
Sex is like shoes.
Some people get by with one really good pair.
Others have a casual pair and a formal pair.
A bunch of people have dozens.
And yet some people, like monks, don’t have any at all.
I love my wife. 🙂
A very well illustrated example of the fundamental differences between Apples apps, Google’s apps, and the kind of apps that your workplace will either create, or license at ridiculously high prices.
“The History of Medicine”
“I have an earache…”
- 2000 BC: “Here eat this root.”
- AD 1000: “That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.”
- AD 1850: “That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.”
- AD 1940: “That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.”
- AD 1985: “That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.”
- AD 2000: “That antibiotic is unnatural. Here, eat this root.”
(New Scientist, 6 September 1997)
Note, in the above progression, the root was the longest tried and true solution and then was merely decried as heathen. Nothing about its ineffectiveness 🙂
