Definition of Insanity

Insanity… according to Dictionary.com,

1. Persistent mental disorder or derangement. No longer in scientific use.
2. Law.
a. Unsoundness of mind sufficient in the judgment of a civil court to render a person unfit to maintain a contractual or other legal relationship or to warrant commitment to a mental health facility.
b. In most criminal jurisdictions, a degree of mental malfunctioning sufficient to relieve the accused of legal responsibility for the act committed.
3.
a. Extreme foolishness; folly.
b. Something that is extremely foolish.

It just beats me how truly insane some people can be… how extreme loosing contact with reality can get, and the consequences that this can have for others surrounding them. And it’s only worse when the person who is insane happens to land a position of influence and power… :S

God protect us from insane leaders and their crazy ideas!

Amazon reviews and the IT pinata

Well… what a nice surprise this pastr Friday: I received an unexpected DVD in the mail… My face, when I opened the package was like “WHAT??!! I didn’t order this!” But it did come from Amazon: a copy of the upcoming (Sept 17th I believe) double-disc edition of “Monsters, Inc.”!!! They thanked me for being such an active reviewer (and buyer, as well…) and wan me to review it. For the first time since I started doing Amazon reviews, something like this happens. 😀

The other fun story from this week was the IT pinnata. It’s a spectacle worth seeing! Ryan brought in (after the blue little dragon we had sitting in for people on vacation or away from the office was tore down to pieces the day before) a colorful ‘torito’ which didn’t last long, either: we kicked it, slammed it and… well, treated it as what it is: a pinnata!Let me tell you something: what a stress reliever it is! 😉

WOW! What a blast… the introductory session today went awesome! I had fun, realized I am very crazy for enrolling in a 21 month trip through the worlds of finances, economics, marketing and more… but I love it. I am overwhelmed with all the information they gave to us today: it’ll probably take a few days to seep thru. In the meantime, I met a lot of gret people.
