I missed the Leonid meteor shower. I heard that this was supposed to be the best it will be for the next century. Slept through it. Wasn't even aware of it. A once in a century event passed in the early morning hours. Wonder what other momentous events I've missed because I was either never informed, or lacked the perception to remark them.
One thing I've also learned over the last few months is that my ability to read people is really rather limited. My intuitive IQ is probably 50 or so. Matters are worse because I've always thought it was 150. Worse to overestimate your acuity than to be stumbling around myopically thinking you're the one-eyed among the blind.Posted by erich at November 21, 2002 10:31 PM
