I have visions of chaos while low wage labor scurry about trying to figure out why they are staring at a blue screen of death. Do make make more fries now or should I flip the burger?

I want Sandy!

I already use Stikkit. I think it's great, but what if I wanted my assistant to be blonde? Heh. I'm not sure how easy it will be to change the habits of non-tech people that just expect this application to work. I had to spend some time to read about how the parser works and what syntax it is expecting you to use. I'm wondering if it will be more lenient with iwantsandy. We'll find out in April.

Man, it sure as hell would take more than just spooning for me to ejaculate!

Near the end of the flight, the FBI said Gonzalez sat next to the woman as she was trying to sleep. He touched her, which she described as spooning, lifted her shirt and then got up and left. Court documents said she felt a warm fluid on her back, clothes and seat after he walked away. She told the officers he had ejaculated on her. - Off-Duty NWA Worker Charged With Assault On Flight

Merit Badge Effect

"The other benefit of the logbook is the Merit Badge Effect. People seem to have a chipmunk-like hoarding instinct, whereby once they start collecting something, whether it be Scout merit badges, bottle caps, or hours worked on a thesis, they want more and more. The secret is to turn your hours into a collection. It sounds silly, but it may work for you. After you've been collecting hours for a few days, you'll start thinking, 'I earned ten hours yesterday. Wonder if i can get eleven today?'" - Getting What You Came For, RL Peters.

Efficient Algorithm for Training Neural Networks with one Hidden Layer

The LM algorithm is now considered as the most efficient[6]. It
combines the speed of the Newton algorithm with the
stability of the steepest decent method.

Automatic initialization

The database initialization step is not absolutely necessary. For instance, in the HSQL-based examples early in the book, we configure Seam to automatically create table schema based on the entity bean annotations (see last section in this chapter). We then place an import.sql file in the EJB3 JAR file. The SQL INSERT statements in the import.sql file are automatically executed when the application is deployed.

At least I didn't spell: Chuy. What a childhood friend prefered to be called, even though his name was Jesus. Yes, he was Latino.
