revelation: why girls tell guys when they break up, "it's not you, it's me." if we told them the truth, that it was not us, but them, these guys dog us indefinitely, swearing that they'll change and swearing that they really care. of course what we say is a lie, but it's a lie that can't be disproven (what guy is crazy enough to try to prove you had a reason to dump him?) and that can be stuck to as long as one wants: "please, i swear this time it'll be different." "no, it's not you, it's me. and guess what! i haven't changed!" cue the sound of a tiny violin playing the saddest song....

quote of the day, from a washington post editor, about a lycos executive:
... he wants his web site to be the biggest in the world.
it seems like written, personal communication is really devolving. i don't have an excuse to write letters anymore, because we have e-mail, but e-mails don't facilitate the kind of thinking that real letters do. and really, why e-mail when you can instant message? but instant messages are even less pre-meditated than e-mails. we're slowly losing our reasons to sit down and think. might there be as large an impact as when invention of the telegraph, and then telephone, forced politics and military actions to begin moving on the scale of days, even minutes, instead of months or years?
