An Interesting People message reports that Howard Schmidt, Microsoft's Chief Security Advisor, will be leaving MS to work as a security adviser for the White House. With the track record that Microsoft has in the area of computer security, this strikes me as a very bad move. You'd think people would examine the job someone did at thier previous job before offering them a new one. Isn't this is like putting Capt. Hazelwood in charge of an oil tanker?

I'm not so sure it's as funny as it is true... :thedeal:

As for energy, we've become like brothers. :agree: If we're not taunting one another, it's not a fun day!

My Brother

I once dropped a bunk bed, with me on it, on my brother's head and chased him into the path of an automobile that knocked him out of his shoes! But, we're OK with it!:ko: :agree: :smokin:

In my family I was 4th of 5 - first a girl, 2 years later a boy, 1 year later another boy, 4 years later me, 6 years later a girl. So I've been 'picked on' all my life (still am). :bonk: And I'm still complaining about being picked on... This may in part explain some of my touchiness. I had 3 above me always waiting to pounce... One time, my parents were having a party - a big one. My brothers stripped me naked - I was probably about 8 or 9 years old - threw me out the door and locked it. Of course, all the guests were amused as I was sighted trying to get back into the house. Childhood was SUCH fun! :thedeal:

Sure Jim, didn't you figure it out long ago? They are just like my sons. You'd think they were going to kill each other, but if an outsider would step in, (of course this theory is kinda hard to prove cuz we don't really have outsiders at the Cove), they'd stick up for each other even if they didn't agree with each other.

Uhhh Oh. A Serious Note

Your theory is correct. I long ago learned through my father and in cultural anthropology, this is the way groups function. The typical base group size is somewhere between 18 and 45 people as I remember of a typical adult. In today's world (at least in the US) the hierarchy is typically immediate family, extended family, local neighborhood, city, county, state, nation. The higher you go - let's say to the national level - the more important the role of political mythology (developed and communicated through advertising and 'news' in today's world) in the mobilisation of the masses.

Two real good books on this are ones my father gave me to read when I was about 14. Robert Ardrey's The Territorial Imperative: A Personal Inquiry into the Animal Origins of Property and Nations and African Genesis: A Personal Investigation into the Animal Origins and Nature of Man. Blew my mind away at the time. He gave me Joseph Heller's Catch 22 to read when we were living in Wimbledon. My mother found out and went ape-stuff. I believe at the time Catch 22 was still banned in the US - that was about 1965.

This can be seen in Afganistan, here at home in the USA and everywhere else in the world. It's West Side Story. It's NY vs. CA. It's race, religion, etc.

Ooops! Sorry to hit a serious note! I won't start on alliance theories... But yes - energy and I have an alliance through the Forums. Like siblings, we pick at each other whenever we get a chance! He's a conservative fascist and I'm a liberal commie! Right, energy? :thedeal:
