Happy New Year, Roll Tide!, and the most honest statement I've heard so far this year...

Another year is here, already. 2010... wow, it really snuck up on me. I remember talking, not too long ago, to someone about how quickly the year 2001 got here, and how, when I first saw the movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, it seemed impossibly far away. Now the sequel has already arrived. No human missions to Jupiter, yet, and no moon obelisks, either.

A few minutes ago, while watching a documentary entitled Definition of Stupid, I heard someone say, "Modern universities are a placebo for intelligence." That totally hit the nail on the head to me. It seems the time and money wasted in college is what earns a degree, these days, not actual intellectual pursuits.

'Bama has another National Title to add to the 12 previous. Lucky number 13. I guess 13 was an unlucky number for Colt McCoy. Roll Tide! At least college is good for something.
