Youtube's recommendation server is weird.

So most everybody knows that if you select a video on youtube and watch it, youtube will then offer other similar videos to watch, to keep you engaged.

Well, I search for a lot of videos about the Orange Taint just to see what the latest courtroom disaster has been.

So today, Youtube started recommending videos to me about rabid wild animals...

Don't know if it's a coincidence or whatever, but it leaves me wondering what the connection is.

Monday, I'll be axed to leave the company

Yes, pun intended.

After 15 years of impeccable service, and at age 67, allofasudden I'm a trouble maker with a bad attitude and given a choice to take a humiliatingly paltry severance package, or continue to work for the company under threat that the next infraction will result with termination for cause with no severance and no unemployment insurance. Boy, life sure turns around in a hurry.

Ask me anyting.

Strahov Monastery Library - Prague, Czech Republic

The monastery library holds books that are more than 500 years old. When you see a white binding, that's a book bound in pigskin.

This is a Mexican song that was considered worthy to be included in the Golden Record carried to the outer edges of the Solar System by Voyagers I & II.
