Email joke

Well since I cant think of anything to blog about, might as well share one of the funniest email forwards ive received.

> Here's what you do. You put 5 gorillas in a cage, and put a
> staircase in that goes nowhere, but has a banana at the top.
> Sooner or later, one of the gorillas starts going up the
> stairs after the banana. When that happens, you spray everyone
> with a firehose.
> After a while, if anyone starts going up the stairs, the
> other gorillas gang up on him and beat him up until he stops.
> At that point, you can stop spraying, because they've become
> a self-policing society.
> Now remove one of the gorillas, and put in someone new. Sooner
> or later, they try to go up the stairs. All the other monkees
> will bang away.
> You can even take away the banana. They're going to gang up on
> anyone who tries to go up the stairs.
> Take out another old one, and put in a new one. They try to
> go up the stairs, and everyone gangs up on him -- including the
> previously new gorilla, who has now learned the ropes.
> Keep doing it, until no more old gorillas remain. You now have
> a society of gorillas that have never once experienced the
> fire hose, who will all police themselves to make sure that no
> one tries to go up the stairs.
> Thats the way its done, because that's the way
> it's always been done.

And thats how you get corporate policy...

Movie remakes

I saw War of the Worlds today. Wasnt bad. But they really shouldve called it something else. The original is centered around aliens taking over the world, exterminating the human race. This remake is centered around a man and his relationship with his children, and an alien invasion just happens to be going on at the same time. Changes the story a bit, know what I mean? Kinda like a movie about some homeless kid who had a crush on some rich uptown girl, and they just happened to be on the largest ship ever built whose sinking went down in history, but the historic sinking was just "by the way".

Anyway, original/remake comaprisons aside, the movie is watchable. Lots of fancy special effects, sound effects are great I think. Tom pulls it off, but in my opinion the actress who played his daughter stole the show. Aliens were, well, aliens. Their ships, the "tripods", were more strange than menacing. Dont know why they kept farting though.
