I once had a coworker that never actually read any books. She did, however, always read the NYT book review section before all social engagements, so that she’d be prepared to converse semi-knowledgeably about the newly released texts creating conversation among reader folks (aka pathologically pretended to be reader folk). I’ve always found this trick to be pretty abhorrent–HOWEVER, we all have our bad days. So I’m gonna hop on the hypocrisy train for just a minute!
Soooooooooo… I haven’t actually read physicist/string field theorist Michio Kaku‘s book, Physics of the Future, which pulls together conclusions about what the world will be like in a century based on interviews with 300 of the world’s top scientists. And maybe that’s a good thing, since NYT’s Dwight Garner found all that science talk to be “dull” and “charmless.” (<– See how I did that there? You’d like, never even know!) I did, however, read Kaku’s essay about 10 of his most fascinating conclusions, which was originally published in the NY Post.

I feel like we all owe it to ourselves to smile a couple of smiles. So…
Y’ALL. I HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU:
BABY MONKEY ON AN ITTLE BITTY PIG. BABY MONKEY ON A TINY LITTLE PIG!
TEENSY! MONKEY! PIGGYBACKING! ON! A! PIG!
OH MY GAW!
Oh my gaw.
You’re welcome, peeps.
If you are one of the people that thought last year was UH-MAZING, and was sad to see it go as the clock ticked down to midnight on December 31, you are a very special human being. You should also go kick yourself in the shins–2009 was a stinker for most of us, and your joy just makes people mad.
Okay, look. At least this happened:
But so did this:
Chad Ochocinco–crazy cocky, yet kinda lovable–properly hyped up an imminent Bengals victory in last night’s SNF matchup versus the Jets during a pre-game interview with Bob Costas. He also added a wager:
“If Revis shuts me down I will change my name back to Johnson,” Ochocinco told NBC’s Bob Costas on the network’s pre-game show. “That’s how confident I am. It’s not going to happen.”
