World's Greatest Sidewalk Art Painter
Go to this link to see some pictures by what we dub the World's Greatest Sidewalk Art Painter bouncechrissy: ***Pictures are back up!***.
The pictures as so 3-D it is hard to believe they are two-dimensional paintings on a sidewalk. This is "modern art" at its best. This guy should be famous - maybe he will be. Nobody seems to know his name- he's an Englishman.

The following article of January 3, 2004 by Michael Erard in the New York Times refers to various studies about speech disfluencies such as "uh" or "um".
Interesting is one study showing that speech pauses such as "you know" and "uh" are more frequent among humanities professors and social scientists. As Erard writes:
But it may be Nicholas Christenfeld, a psychologist at the University of California, San Diego, and other researchers who have come up with the most appealing findings. He counted uhs among professors giving lectures and found that the humanities professors say you know and uh 4.85 times per minute, social scientists 3.84 and natural science professors 1.39 times, which, he said, suggests that humanists have more expressive options from which to choose.
We suspect, however, that it means that the natural science professors are lecturing about more certain factual materials, whereas the social scientists and humanities professors need these verbal pauses to "construct" their statements about things which - in the last analysis - are relatively more uncertain.

Via Mandarin Design Daily:The MEG Blog and Whiskey River (which is a blog with many fabulous quotations) we are led to this quotation, to which we ascribe and have, most of our life:
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs;
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs
is people who have come alive."
- Harold Whitman
