This couldn't be more off target. They've given it to a man who has no goals.

Work is having a wellness drive and we've been encouraged to fill out a wellness survey with our health provider. Apparently I'm 96 well and 4 unwell. I'm not sure what the units are, perhaps it's percent. If so, I think that the 4% unwellness is my nose which is easily big enough to represent 4% of my body and has been sneezing recently.
Aparently I don't eat enough fruit and veg...

Computers count in binary, 1's and 0's. That's because each of place in memory can be either on or off. Humans count in decimal because we have 10 digits, 8 of which we call fingers and 2 thumbs.
It's obvious then that bees should use base 6 to count and that should make it equally obvious why the cells in honeycomb are hexagonal.

This morning a large lizard took off next to me and kept pace for about 100 yards. It never found a hole and eventually just stopped. I couldn't work out if he'd stopped because he was exhausted and had run out of steam or just didn't consider me a threat anymore.

Here is the captcha that I've been given for this blog post before it will "go live."
Now what do you think it says? I'm guessing that it's "oogafk" and I'm pretty sure that I'm right.
However, I've noticed that blogger never accepts my initial guess when posting a blog. No matter how right I am it says that I'm wrong and gives me another captcha. The second one I always get right. I'm guessing that this is a bug.
That's when it struck me about how cool it would be if restaurants gave you the ability to reduce their online menu to what you can eat and perhaps even allow you to order it by your favorite types of food.
So if you're allergic to fish or nuts or if you're a vegetarian, kosher or halal eater you can select what is acceptable and what is not. Also, by ranking your preferences for different food types those dishes that had your favorite bits in them would be listed at the top.
Does anybody know of any online menus that do this?
Now I know the answer to this question so I had already answered it correctly before I had turned around to look at her.
"Phat is spelled P.H.A.T." she said. "It stands for Pretty Hot And Tasty."
"In that case you're definitely phat," I replied.
This question promises to be more and more difficult to answer in the future...
