playful sisyphus

Quote of the Moment
"How about Sisyphus, the guy who pushed a rock up a hill for eternity? That fits this project."

"Hmmm...I like it! It conveys a sense of playfulness."

"It's supposed to convey a sense of futility!"

"You have to look at it from the rock's point of view."

--Dilbert and Pointy Hair Boss naming a project, that's the actual quote from the tv show. (I used to paraphrase it as "Sisyphus has a sense of playfulness [...] you have to look at it from the rock's point of view.")

UFOs over New Mexico? WTF? It seems to be taken pretty seriously even though it feels like some kind of publicity stunt. (Thanks for the Old/New Mexico correction UnavailableName5)
