    Happy birthday Dan

    Give it up for our Great Leader!

    The people cannot be stopped from engaging in completely spontaneous displays of their zeal, enthusiasm, and adoration for our Great Leader!



    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Hoppy birthday, dude.

    Happy Birthday! You should do something crazy... like leave work early, go to a bar, and get plastered... or just enjoy the day. Whichever seems more fun to you...

    How did the world ever manage to survive before Dan invented Cyburbia (and the internet and electricity)?

    Didn't he invent Al Gore before all that?

    so how long did you end up having to wait before the opportunity to post something with the word "paean" presented itself? Just curious.

    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    I'm pretty sure that singing peons would be more appropriate.

    I've been reading a bit about North Korea lately, including the book by the capitan of the Pueblo. He details how they gleefully misused "paean" in their so-called confessions. So anything with a North Korea link suggests paeans to me. Sorry, but that's just the way I think.

    And singing peons would be more appropriate for birthday greetings for RJ than for Dan.
