Quote of the Moment

The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should, therefore, be regarded as a criminal offense.

Ugh, today's kids are forgetting the old-fashioned art of absentmindedly reading the same half-page of a book over and over and then letting your attention wander and picking up another book.

WHY DO WE SAY "NEAR MISS" WHEN THEY'RE REALLY A "NEAR HIT": because there are many types of misses. you can miss something by a little ("a near miss") or by a lot ("a far miss"). if you DON'T want to be hitting something, a near miss is obviously more dangerous than a far one. in contrast, when dealing with bombs, a "near miss" of a target is better than a far miss because while you didn't hit the mark, it may have still been damaged by the explosion.
