The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues. Liz Taylor

I spent many years as a mechanical designer and engineer and I talked to myself all the time. In fact, I would go so far as to have conversations with myself because it was an effective way to trouble shoot a design. The adage of "making all the mistakes on paper" is important because at worse all you have to do is get another sheet of paper, once you make the design into steel, if it doesn't work, it's a boat anchor.
Yeah, a lot of jokes about it over the years, but my stuff worked and not everyone else could claim that.
Now mind you, had I been working on a design and was talking about killing someone or some sort of horrible thing like that then yeah, it would be time to send me to the funny farm. I still run things through like that to this day.

The Mighty oak was once a little nut that stood its ground
Funniest thing was that I sat in the trainstation and someone was calling and talking and laughing on the phone.
Then all of a sudden his phone rang and I was like... "Wasn't he on the phone already?"
Since he laughed out loud while all of a sudden his phone rang.
Is this madness or was he just that lonelely that he decided to "act" a call with actually noone.
Since after the phone rang and he picked up I could actually hear a voice over his telephone and previously I could not since the room we were sitting in was really quiet and isolated to isolate the noise of the trains passing through.
