A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

The Daily News and Lounge are part of my morning routine. I also visit when switching tasks or when I'm stumped and need to step away from a problem. If that doesn't work, then it's off to the woodshed.
Reminds me of one case mentioned in the classic book by David A. Ricks: Big business blunders - Mistakes in International Marketing (the exact title varies slightly with the editions of the book): One airline company wanted to market their VIP service internationally, referring to one service as their "Rendevouz Lounge". They were not aware that in some Latin American countries, a Rendevouz Lounge is where you go to find a prostitute.
(I haven't read that book for years. I really should dig it up and re-read it; I rememer it as a highly recommendable text!)
I'm afraid it is.
LEGO ain't cheap, especially one of the biggest consumer sets ever
Maybe Star Wars LEGO is slightly more expensive too because of licensing issues.

Yeah, she really doesn't like people.
I couldn't even come close.
Even after ten weeks she still hisses at me whenever she sees me!
She got a little better before she took off.
At least she was wandering around the house, playing with toys at night, sitting on my desk or on a chair (far away from me, of course), and she even came to watch me when I was in the kitchen.
About two or three days before she disappeared she sat about two meters away from me while I tried to lure her in with some cat treats.
She didn't come closer, but she didn't run away either and she's never been that close before (out of her own)
I had good hopes, but then she ran away and I haven't seen her for eight day now
