I fear it may be deliberate. At uni, the college I was at[^] had a newsletter that was posted in the lavatories (so you had something to read and, in extremis, emergency toilet roll) affectionately it was called "The Bogsheet" but it's official title was "The Carsehole" after the odd way some southerners pronounce the word "castle".
I've been entering January 1, spin the scroll wheel once as my birthday for years.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition's given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you, Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desperately to shed: pure West Virginia. What is your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of the lamp? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars... while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the F B I.
I know it is posted as joke. But its sad that the statement has some truth in it
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream. Discover.
I got up at 4 to be at the station for 5 to catch a bus to Heathrow.
I got there on time so why couldn't the bus? This make Vilmos angry. You won't like Vilmos angry.

Ok everyone, here is your chance to get away from Global Warming, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and etc. Plus you might actually get to meet Bob.
Excerpt from the site:
In 2013 Mars One will conduct a global search to find the best candidates for the first human mission to Mars in 2023. On Mars, the primary responsibility for the astronauts is to keep everything, and everyone, up and running. The astronauts must be intelligent, creative, psychologically stable and physically healthy.
Mars One accepts applicants from any country in the world.
Once on Mars, there is no means to return to Earth.
The astronaut selection program will start in the first half of 2013.
I think you must also be suicidal....
It's a one way ticket to oblivion, at 18!!!
A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....
My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
So what is left of Sea Bright and surrounds? We've missed you.
That is SOO kind of you to say!
There's lots of demolition going on in Sea Bright - dozens of buildings need to be razed to make way for the new. Only two businesses have reopened in town, a Chinese restaurant, and a mom-and-pop hardware store.
By sheer coincidence, a beach replenishment project had already been scheduled long before the storm arrived, so they were able to begin dredging soon after the storm was gone. At least the beach will be ready for tourists by the summer of 2013, but nobody knows when the rest of town will be normal again.
Thanks for your post, and it's good to be back!
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
