I just had one of those bizarre moments of sychronicity/coincidence...

At my staff induction this afternoon the VC just quoted that particular Rumsfeld saying while talking about the state of the Uni.

(which was just before someone boldly asked about the financial situation here)

But twice in one day!

It must mean something. It must be important.

Maybe I should see? Slightly afraid now in case doing so explodes my computer...

Well. Then you'll have a perfect excuse to go buy a nifty laptop! But probably it will just spit out some sort of prizewinning poetry that'll fetch you the nobel prize for literature.... that way I can say for the rest of my life - "I inspired a nobel prize winning poem!"

Hmm.. You submit T.S. Elliot, it outputs e.e. cummings. You could be on to something there. Try E.A. Poe or better yet, D.H. Rumsfeld -
"As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don't know
We don't know."

Maybe you'll get something completely new and exciting out. You could submit it to a conference on machine creativity or something..
