ROUNDUP: Jeff's highlights of the week

Jeff spends a lot of time on the roof of our building thinking things through. Three highlights from this week:

∞ Observed that people who live or work together seem to have dreams in bursts at more or less the same time. Pscychic pheromones?

∞ Told me a joke Gore Vidal told him at a party 10 years ago: Apparently Vidal had met Nixon and asked him what he thought of George HW Bush. "Oh, he's not much of anything... you can always push him around... but his wife-- she's special! She's vicious!" When Jeff delivered the punch line, it was as Gore Vidal impersonating Richard Nixon.

∞ Informed me that his computer has something called "The Blue Screen of Death."
