I recently reopened a sketchpad that I used to write in. There are a ton of empty pages in it and I needed a more portable one now that I'm back at work for awhile. I looked back at some of the written pages. I had a deep thought back in March of 2004 that cracked me up:
"There should be one designated watcher over per subway to tell us if the train is coming or not so we don't all have to periodically stop what we're doing to lunge on the edge of the platform to see for ourselves. It's really silly. We all do it and it needs to be done in order to express our impatience and believe we are making the time pass. You know, the whole watched pot thing. On one of the polls there can be a bell, and if you stand near it, it's your job. You know, like when you sit next to the emergency exit on a plane. It's just your responsibility. When they see the train coming, ring-a-ding-ding."
