What Kind of Thinker Are You?

I went here and took the quiz.
It says I'm a spatial thinker.

Spatial Thinkers:

* Tend to think in pictures, and can develop good mental models of the physical world.
* Think well in three dimensions
* Have a flair for working with objects

Yep, an engineer.
I knew that.


An Anniversary

After reading this CBS News article today, I am reminded that I quit smoking one year ago yesterday.

It took a trip to the emergency room to scare some sense into me. I was lucky I
got a warning from my heart.

I'm not going to lie to you, quitting smoking isn't easy. There isn't any easier way to do it, just quit and suffer. When I was lying there in the hospital, they slapped a nicotine patch on me, and said "this will ease the withdrawl symptoms, but all it did for me was give me more chest pains. When I realized what was causing my pains, I threw it away.

In the end the scare was enough all by itself.



Tipplers make better thinkers than teetotallers

According to Newindpress.com, Tipplers make better thinkers than teetotallers.

People who drink two pegs of alcohol a day, have better verbal skills, memory and speed of thinking, than teetotallers and heavy drinkers, according to a recent research.

Yet, I don't think this will change anybody's drinking habits.

Update1: PEGS?
Aussie for a snort maybe?

Update2: Moderate alcohol consumption boosts brainpower: study another one.
