    My leg hurt in the morning, I didn't sleep well in general, my clones didn't grow over the weekend, today I have an important meeting (not important for me, but there will be many important people) and I don't really know what to expect of it, so you're right.

    But then again, isn't it just great to be alive? To have this very short period of conscience in an eternity of nothingness? The ability to realize that this is special?

    Let's make today the day of the little things!
    I like your optimism :-)

    I'm sorry to hear that. It would've been nice to be able to get a new PC when the holiday sales are in progress.
    yes, the festive season in India is almost here, so I hope to get a good deal.

    Im looking for a 10"-11" laptop, preferably convertible. I would love the surface pro, but it has shown no signs of release in India, and its way out of my budget.
    The Asus transformer book t100 looks good too, but again, it hasn't shown up in the Indian market.
    Is the Lenovo Yoga 13 too big for you? I have a feeling that its price will drop when the Yoga 2 is released.

    That's cool. Is this the guy you're getting the really nice model car?
    Yep, I showed him the picture of that model and all he said was 'wow, how much does it cost?'
    I said 'Its your new year gift when I come to visit you in november'
    He's 27, am 24, we met while doing masters and seems we both are like xerox copies lol, its fun!
    And the worst or you could say best part is, his to be wife is a xerox of him :p

    I don't have many friends, 2 in the real world (both of them have been booked now) and a gazillion on the internet including BIGPADDY, martinmc78, Laura Knoktek, nocial (The guy who is never social), hs k, av3st3r (something like that :/), and many others whose names I cannot remember.
    I also have a trazillion enemies like Chregu, N_LaRue (Pulling the liquid up my nose after I say it), sahib lopez and some other haunted souls whom I have to deal with in a friendly way every day. LOL, kidding on the enemy part hah!

    We have Columbus Day holiday here, but it doesn't really mean much other than sales in department stores and banks/schools/post office closed. Some cities might have parades, but not too many actually celebrate Columbus Day.

    Both names I haven't heard before. But it's clear to me that appreciating life itself is not really a new concept ;-)

    I'd think Richard Dawkins would be more familiar to biologists than Carl Sagan, since Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist. I never read anything by Dawkins when I was in school, but I did read stuff by Stephen Jay Gould.

    I haven't read any Gould yet. I've read two books by Dawkins but I own three, it's in Australia, The Blind Watch Maker. I haven't read any Carl Sagan but I have listened to an audio book, Pale Blue Dot. I want to get Daemon Haunted World though.

    I just looked up Dawkins on Wikipedia. Apparently Dawkins disagrees with Gould's theory of punctuated equilibrium in The Blind Watchmaker.

    Wow! I just remembered another groundbreaking evolutionary biologist Lynn Margulis. I never knew she was Carl Sagan's first wife until today, when I looked her up on Wikipedia.

    I've only read the first few chapters of The Blind Watch Maker. I believe Dawkins and Gould did argue several points, though I believe they were good friends. Science is great that way though. I think that's what makes it interesting that two people could have their differences but still be good friends.

    Unfortunately near the end of her life she made a few stupid statements that messed up her reputation. I remembered something about that once I started reading the wiki article.
