Observations

Two random observations:

1. Whoever said that you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar wasn't talking about fruit flies. I recently heard of a great way to catch fruit flies that worked perfectly when I tried it: set out a cup with a little apple cider vinegar in it, with some drops of dish soap added on top (which seems to trap the fruit flies for some reason).

2. Did we Americans ever decide on a standard name for this decade (2000-onward)? We've only got about three years left to do so. Otherwise, in 2010, no one is going to know what to say when referring back to this decade. "In the _____, we saw the rise of such-and-such." Or radio stations -- right now, they're able to say, "KRAP, your source for the hits of the 80s, 90s and today." Well, "today" isn't always going to work as a substitute for a decade title.

I'm still debating between "Zippies" and "Noughties" myself.

To borrow from the old political party, how about the "Know Nothings"?
