Hi guys,

I heard one the other day which I thought was particularly funny. Someone commmented that he had a big BM comming up. You can guess what I thought! Turns out the acronym is being used for "Business Meeting" now. Are we returning to the tower of Babble or what?

Speaking of meaningless babble, someone just anounced over the radio that there was a 100% chance that there would be further terrorist attacks on the US if Bush retaliated against Afganistan. Now exactly what does that mean?

From my understanding of the meaning of the word chance, a 100% chance event is one which absolutely cannot be predicted! I really don't feel that is what was meant.

Have fun -- Dick
