I have to go back to work tomorrow. After three days off (today being a holiday) it seems so unappealing.
Still, as someone firmly in the bottom income bracket, I was heartened to see the results of the BBC National IQ Test:
Salary non-earner 107 below £20,000 104 £20,000—£30,000 101 £30,001—£50,000 99 £50,000 + 93
Does it prove that work is for mugs, or that intelligence is a financial disadvantage in modern society? I’d like to say the former, but I fear the latter might be more accurate.
Apropos of absolutely nothing, if you wanted to know how to say SARS in Japanese—though I’m sure you didn’t—it’s 急性重症呼吸器症候群 or kyūseijūshōkokyūkishōkōgun. It’s a mouthful in any language. No wonder everyone says “SARS,” even here.
