I'm predicting Barack Obama. Hillary seems to have managed to alienate the African-American vote, and the females seem to be voting for Barack.

It feels a bit bizzare to read about Microsoft's bid for Yahoo, on Yahoo and MSN.

"It is easy to overlook this thought that life just is. As humans we are inclined to feel that life must have a point. We have plans and aspirations and desires. We want to take constant advantage of all the intoxicating existence we've been endowed with. But what's life to a lichen? Yet its impulse to exist, to be, is every bit as strong as ours-arguably even stronger. If I were told that I had to spend decades being a furry growth on a rock in the woods, I believe I would lose the will to go on. Lichens don't. Like virtually all living things, they will suffer any hardship, endure any insult, for a moment's additional existence. Life, in short, just wants to be. But-and here's an interesting point- for the most part it doesn't want to be much."
