A Powerful Message About Work

I just watched this really good 20 minute video by Mike Rowe (he’s the Dirty Jobs guy). I warn you, it is a bit PG-13 for some farm animal stuff, but it is really well worth it. I love what he has to say, and he is far more intelligent than I ever gave him credit. Actually, guys like him are often far more intelligent than most of us give them credit.

In case you are wondering, I didn’t embed it, because it only embeds the first half to try and drive you to the Fora site–kinda annoying, if you ask me.  It is better to watch it all in one place.

Google Suggestion

Most people don’t think much about the Google engine’s Suggest feature. Basically, when you type something into Google, whether it is your search bar in your browser, or into the google page itself, it gives you suggestions based on your browsing habits (above a line) and the most frequent searches done by others*. This is a really great time-saver often, but sometimes there are funny or poignant results.

The sad thing is that somewhere there is an overweight, bipolar, alcoholic, who is concerned she is pregnant by the man she loves.  She just realize these suggestions all relate to her, and now she is depressed.
