Me? Cool?

I found this test over at Keeps Dropping Keys and decided I hadn't wasted enough time today, so... says I'm an Uber Cool Light-Weight Nerd.  Click here to take the Nerd Test, get nerdy images and jokes, and talk to others on the nerd forum!

Yeah, I have never thought of myself as "cool" in any way, shape, or form. But I'm glad to see I'm not too extreme on any of the categories. I guess. Does that mean I'm balanced or boring?


You are NOT "helping" if your "help" is not wanted.

This applies to individuals as well as governments.

My daughter was playing today and wanted to "help" a smaller child. The kid did not appreciate her "help" and fussed. She told me she just wanted to help him, but I suggested she ought to see if he wanted her help first. She may learn, at 3 1/2 years old, what no president, congresscritter, mayor, or cop has ever apparently managed to learn.

That lesson, again, is that it is not "help" if the person doesn't want it, no matter how "noble" your intentions, and no matter whether the person is in actual danger.
