Thanks, Bob ... that was a great time waster. It's an amazing piece of programming.    :)
I have always enjoyed kaleidoscopes and have collected a few over the years.

The rest of www.zefrank.com/ should also be checked out as there are some very interesting things there.    :)

Back in February Firefox hit 300 million downloads, and now 7-months later it is rolling the counter over again as they hit 400 million downloads! Of course that is the number of downloads the browser has, and doesn’t actually represent the number of users. Actually Mozilla recently posted information regarding things they’re trying to do to improve their user retention rate, and the graph they provided implies that they have around 40 million users…just 10% of the number of downloads.
Now it is time to go onward and upward! April 15th, 2008 is my estimated date that Firefox will hit 1/2 billion downloads. And we should see 1 trillion downloads sometime in the year 8049 if their current growth rate continues.
Congrats to Mozilla and the Firefox team! Keep up the great work, and I’m looking forward to Firefox 3 which is expected later this year.

The English Language
(And you thought it was easy  ;D )

Ode to plurals

We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

Then one may be that, and three would be those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger;
neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England.
We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes,
we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,
and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing,
grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend.
If you have a bunch of odds and ends
and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?

If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English
should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.

In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?
We ship by truck but send cargo by ship.
We have noses that run and feet that smell.
We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway.
And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,
while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
in which your house can burn up as it burns down,
in which you fill in a form by filling it out,
and in which an alarm goes off by going on.

And, in closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother's not Mop?

And for all of that, my admiration for all those posting in English when that isn't their first language.

Also, someone once said, America and Great Britain, people separated by a common language.

Buns in England taste nice, but you would get a strange look in America if you said your buns taste nice ;D

When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who
just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not
dried out. Give this a try.

BAKED STUFFED CHICKEN

6-7 lb. Chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn ( ORVILLE REDENBACHER 'S LOW FAT) Salt/pepper to
taste

_____________________________

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt,
and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with
the neck end toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds. When the chicken's butt blows the oven door
open and the chicken flies across the room, it's done.

And, you thought I couldn't cook.........

Advances In Shaving
This was invented in 1931, and I think Bob ;D still uses it: Clean Shaves With New Steam Pad.
     

POSSIBLY THE VERY BEST CHICKEN JOKE EVER ;D
A chicken and an egg are lying in bed.

The chicken is leaning against the headboard smoking a cigarette, with a

satisfied smile on its face.

The egg, looking a bit pissed off, grabs the sheet, rolls over, and
says,

'Well, I guess we finally answered THAT question.'

We had an unexpected dangerous visitor this afternoon.
I took a few pictures before we moved the Tarantula to a safe out of the way place.
Next time it shows up it might be as lucky.
