I'm Huge In The Sudan

Scroll down about a third through this page.

You'll see one of my old short stories posted on what I think is a Sudanese website.

Yep, knocked me out of my chair.

Doing a little more searching, I found the same story, "A Sometimes Beautiful Thing," mentioned on a few more sites:
Several years ago someone calling himself "Joe in China" got in touch with me to let me know he'd read my story in that Chinese textbook. Guess someone else has a copy of it, too.

Know who doesn't have a copy of that textbook?


Not that I'm bitter or anything...

Butt! Butt!!

You know if you or I ever did what Zidane did last night at our workplace, we could hardly expect a pat on the back from the boss.


But not in the eyes of FIFA. In spite of a vicious attack on another player in front of a billion people around the world, Zidane has just been named the World Cup's best player.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe if I headbutt a kid in one of my classes once August rolls around, someone who just won't behave himself, I could just possibly end up Teacher of the Year.

Or maybe not.


Most people have a firm grasp of 3-D because, well, we're living in a 3-D world. Some people also realize that there's a 4th dimension - Time - and don't have to strain to hard imagining Time as a straight line moving from one point (the past) to another point (the future).

But what about dimensions 5 through 10?


Spend a few minutes watching this presentation and try and wrap your head around it.

Don't Wanna Be Like Mike

Just think of what life would be like if you resembled a famous celebrity -- for instance, Michael Jordan.

Must not be all that great.
