Joke of the Week

Here is a great joke that was emailed to me for you to start the week with.

Finally, a definition of globalization that I can understand and to which I now can relate:

What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Princess Diana's death.

How come?

Answer :
An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky, (check the bottle before you change the spelling), followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles and treated by an American doctor using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by a Canadian, using American, Bill Gates's technology, and you're reading this on your computerthat uses Taiwanese chips, on a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Indian truck drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexican illegal's....

That, my friends, is Globalization!

AWWWWW....too soon?

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.

All righty then. That would be cool thought.
