Another Mayday? Ai A Day!
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”
—Albert Einstein (1879-1955), who formulated the theory of relativity.
“Mayday”—an international radio telephone signal for help that is used by ships and aircraft in distress—is short for the French phrase “venez m’aider” (come help me).
American singer, songwriter, Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner Bob Dylan was born May 24,1941. Still performs at 82. Below is a parody of his beautiful song titled Forever Young.

“Claiming that complex outputs arising from even more complex inputs is ‘emergent behavior’ is like finding a severed finger in a hotdog and claiming the hotdog factory has learned to create fingers.”
—Theodore Kim, an associate professor of computer science at Yale University, in an opinion piece that was republished in Saipan Tribune.
May You Only Slowly Grow Senescent
(Parody of the Bob Dylan song Forever Young)
May your brain stay bright and your head stay clear
May kind loving thoughts for others predominate
May both your eyes avoid shedding a single tear
May your ears enjoy both minor key and dominant
May you continue to learn when and how not to fight
And argue less and less with all those that you love
As you sing and dance throughout eternal night
Stand up for your beliefs when push comes to shove
May you keep your heart wide open to all the poor
Immigrants whether their entry is legal or not
Stay away from lying politicos and followers for sure
Stay away from entangling arguments when they get hot.
May the rest of your life be peaceful and pleasant.
May you only very slowly grow to be senescent.
