While I’m waiting

As my extraordinarily long SQL statement processes, here are some things I’ve been wanting to blog about

  • A very funny morning
  • An interesting article on the old (mostly 19th century) practice known as “Catch Wrestling“. It was the original predecessor to today’s pro wrestling, and was real. They mostly worked out of carnivals and consisted of extraordinarily tough men who could take on all comers.
  • Bolivia is about to elect a president who promises to legalize coca production. That would be a much needed dose of reality for South America, and help to stop their slide into a continent of gangster states. Sadly he seems to be in the Chavez/Castro/Mussolini mold on everything else, so any gains would probably be wasted. It’s surprising that’s not getting more attention.
  • A very good password generator.
