The Snail

January 15th, 2010 by Jeremy

A farmer hears a knock at his door late one winter’s night. He opens his door, looks around and looks down and there, at his doorstep, is a snail. The snail says, “Can I come in, I’m really coooooold?” The Farmer says, “No, get outta here you stupid snail,” and kicks him across the garden. Spring comes, then summer then fall and before you know it, it’s winter again.  The farmer hears a knock on his door. He opens the door, looks around and sees that same snail from last year, who says, “What did you do that for?”

Do You Have Confidence?

December 19th, 2009 by Jeremy

A hypothetical situation where 20 CEOs board a private jet and are told that the flight that they are about to take is the first-ever to feature a new technology: It is a crewless aircraft (no pilots or flight attendants). Each one of the CEOs is then told, privately, that their company’s software is running the aircraft’s automatic pilot system. Nineteen of the CEOs promptly leave the aircraft, each offering a different type of excuse. One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming very calm. Asked why he is so confident in this first crewless flight, he replies: “If it is the same software that is developed by my company’s IT department, this plane won’t even take off!”

How Many Of Me

howManyOfMe

I’ve talked about this several times in the past but I just heard about a website yesterday via a podcast I listen to on my way into work in the mornings called HowManyOfMe.com which displays the popularity of your first and last name.  I was glad to hear that 99.59 percent of people with the first name of Jeremy are male.
