Here she is: Miss Universe (and we protest!)

"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.



A TRAVESTY!!!: So they've crowned Miss Universe and she's from Venezuela. Doesn't this stink of typical human arrogance? For example, what must the Klingons be thinking when we have the chutzpah to declare the most beautiful woman in the universe without even allowing them a contestant? Or the Romulans? Or even the Borg, for that matter. Apologies are required. (RL)

NEVER TOO LATE: No, it's never too late to get "Ready for the Weekend," which Calvin Harris demonstrates with his Humanthesizer. Better keep Kid Rock away from this instrument or nothing will ever get done. (RS)
