[:-}> alt=Profile Picture of a Moustachioed Guy Fawkes type of Character.

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.” — Robert A. Heinlein

"Its a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God." — Mahatma Ghandhi

The Fonz Koan:
----------------------------------
A master stood attending to his business when a young disciple came and asked him how he could reach enlightenment.

The master replied,
"Aaaayyyyyy."




Schrödinger's Cat's Koan:
----------------------------------
A master was attending his business when a disciple lifted the lid of his box in order to ascertain whether his quantum wave-function had collapsed.

The master replied,
"Miaow!"




Chewbacca's Koan:
----------------------------------
"Hhhüürrrrrrrn Maarrrruuuuuuuuughhhhhhh! Auurrrrwwwll Grruuuuaaaaggghhh Mroooaaaaghhhh Arrrghhhhh Graaaarwwllllllgh!"




A monk asked Kegon:
----------------------------------
How does an enlightened one return to the ordinary world?"
Kegon replied, "A broken mirror never reflects again; fallen flowers never go back to old branches."




"The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat." - Confucius

My Most Top 10 Ideas: http://tinyurl.com/3xqfnn

iPhone app ideas (many of which may already be out there, but which might benefit from some interface improvements):
slave-flash unit
Basic Signal Generator
Binary-Byte Representor (e.g. 17 = [oxxxxoxx] 255 = [oooooooo]) Plus Logic Gates
Tone Dialler
Sandwich Callibrator
Prime Number Informationi(s|z)er
A proper dice-roller where the 3d dice actually roll!
Accelerometer-driven sound generator (i.e. a light-saber simulator that works properly)
Big Fat Logic Box - build up complex nested AND, OR, XOR statements using the cute graphical interface, fill in the answers and get a result - save and share your logic branches, use them to make a robot jump around, or something.
