You've all seen the old cow meme, haven't you.

Socialism: You have 2 cows and you give one to your neighbor.
Communism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both and gives you some milk.
Fascism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both and sells you some milk.
Nazism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both and shoots you.

Well, there's now more.

Bureaucratism: You have 2 cows; the Government takes both, shoots one, milks the other and throws the milk away..
Traditional Capitalism: You have 2 cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.
An American Corporation: You have 2 cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyze why the cow dropped dead.
A French Corporation: You have 2 cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.
Japanese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called Cowkimon and market them worldwide.
An Italian Corporation: You have 2 cows, but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.
A Swiss Corporation: You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.
Chinese Corporation: You have 2 cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the newsman who reported the numbers.
An Iraqi Corporation: Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No one believes you and they bomb your arse. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a democracy.
Counter Culture: 'Wow, dig it, like there's these 2 cows, man, grazing in the hemp field. You gotta have some of this milk!'
Surrealism: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.
Apathyologism: You have 2 cows. You do not care.
Fatalist: You have 2 doomed cows...
Atheism: You have 2 cows. There is no God.
A West-Country Corporation: You have 2 cows and a sheep. The sheep is kinda cute.
A Brazilian Corporation: You have 2 cows. You pay taxes for 6 cows. You have to sell one cow in order to pay the taxes. Your remaining cow gets sick and dies while waiting for availability in the public vet hospital.
Russia: You have two cows. Since they are both female, if you happen to keep them in the same stable you will pay a 5,000 rouble fine for homosexual propaganda.
PETA: You have two cows. You kill them both. You then use naked women to convince other people that killing cows is wrong.
Moffat: You have two cows. Both of them are your daughters time traveling from the past where they had a brief love affair with Da Vinci making you the rightful Queen of England.
Hussie: You have 2 cows. You ask for another one. Instead of getting just 1 cow, you get 2,485,506 cows.
Romney: You have 2 cows. You drive with one cow on the roof of your car. You are not the president of the United States.
Once-ler: You have 1 cow. Everyone decides to make 5 different versions of that cow.
Old Spice: You have 2 cows. The cows are now diamonds. I'm on a horse.
An Irish Corporation: You have a million cows because they're everywhere.
Tumblr: You have 2 cows. You ship them together and make GIF posts screaming about how much you love your cows, but they should stop existing because they are so perfect.
Also Tumblr: I give you a hamburger.
Cows: The [charming expletive] you go through.

Usually this meme operates on page 56, I believe. That's changed.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth full sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around for the coolest book you can find. Use what's actually nearest to you.

That sentence is your spiritual guide for tomorrow.

Note: In addition to detailing by means of elementary specifications, you can continue decomposing scalar specifications by using sets of [qualifiers].

Oh, well, my spiritual guide for tomorrow isn't very spiritual I need to keep something other than books about software engineering by my desk. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tim1965 for keeping me spiritually clued in.

Well, everyone else seems to be doing it, so here's my list:

Most of the time, in London at St. Matthew's Court with HWMBO and many stuffed animals.

Other than that:

January: Holiday Inn Express in the 20's west of 8th Avenue in Manhattan, for 1 week.
Late May Bank Holiday: hotel (forgotten name) in central Manchester, UK, for 3 nights.
Late June/Early July: Puritan Road in Marblehead, for my uncle's funeral, 1 week.
Mid-September: Puritan Road again, for a social/family visit, 1 week.
Late October: Block 158 at Bishan, in Singapore, staying with our friend BK, 10 nights.
Late October/1st November: Palm Village in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Bungalow 6, 5 nights.

Geez, I've been more places this year than I thought.

Next year I anticipate a trip to Marblehead in April, a trip to New York in June for my 35th college reunion, and another trip to Singapore later on in the year. And, as I will probably be contracting during the year, who knows where else. I shall be more careful about remembering where I've been this year.

Your Brain is Red

Of all the brain types, yours is the most impulsive.
If you think it, you do it. And you can get the bug to pursue almost any passion.
Your thoughts are big and bold. Your mind has no inhibitions.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about love, your dreams, and distant places.
