OK, its Friday here in Missouri.
Programmers are *not* known to be a totally serious bunch. Been there,
done that for over 15 years.
So, being Friday, lets remember that this was (honest) the date in history
when the USAF put a bear in a B-58 escape capsule and ejected it. At
Mach 2+ and at altitude.
The bear survived.
However, it was determined that said bear did tear up the capsule a bit.
He did not volunteer for a 2nd ride (being a bit upset over it all). He also,
like a good USAF aircrew, did mess up the capsule a bit (even if he
wasn't in the woods). No word on who had to clean all the crap out.
So, drink to the bear at happy hour tonight while wondering what SAS
means (Special Air Service over the pond at times or an airline way up
where its cold and just seeing the sun...) or trying to figure out the latest
of many programming problems.
