經鄒魯祭孔子而嘆之 (唐玄宗)

夫子何為者,棲棲一代中。
地猶鄹氏邑,宅即魯王宮。
嘆鳳嗟身否,傷麟怨道窮。
今看兩楹奠,當與夢時同。

Predictive response caching

I just noticed that I've started preemtively typing in replies when I chat with certain people on aim (and by the way, let me point out that I never thought they day would come when I'd be regularly using a service with a name starting in AOL). So I'll ask a question, e.g.

  me: jesus christ, could you stop being a dumbass for just one second?

and while waiting for the actual reponse, i'll start typing in my witty reply, such that when they finally respond, i'm able to reply with blinding quickness and great wit:

them: no
  me: ho ho! always the dullness of the fool is the whetstone of the wits,
      fo shizzle.

which makes for some very quick conversations.
