Q1 Pub-crawl Results: Corrections and Clarifications

The executives down at JTC have to be pretty proud of themselves this morning. They were able to generate at least 10 great ideas at Friday night's JTC off-site, aka "pubcrawl" (see blog below for the minutes.) I wonder if other companies should 'leverage' off the idea of an executive pubcrawl to create new ideas and initiatives within their respective companies. I'd personally enjoy seeing multi-million dollar CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, and CTOs trying to order White Russians at Sensual Lounge.

To address the geometry debate which occurred at Suz Dal. I stand corrected on the the rhombus shape. It is not the shape of the goalie zone behind NHL hockey nets. My memory of grade seven math has failed me yet again. I had no idea what a parallelepiped was either, but after a visit to mathworld.wolfram.com, a parallelepiped is just six congruent rhombuses - or rhombi.

The dolphin weight debate will depend on which type of dolphin each of us had in mind. I was thinking of the popular bottle-nosed dolphins, which have an average weight of 350 lbs (answers.com). But it seems smaller dolphins can weigh 165 lbs on average, so there's no clear winner on this one. Well, it's all for charity, so what's the difference? More interesting, are the other facts discovered about dolphins (reference: answers.com):

"Play behavior is highly developed in the bottlenose from infancy through old age, and in this connection it displays considerable tool-making, tool-using, and manipulative ability; for example, a dolphin has been observed to kill a fish, strip its skeleton, and use the bones, held in the mouth, to pry another fish out of a crevice. Sex play is frequent and is initiated by any individual toward any other, without regard to size, age, sex, relationship, or even species; approaches to human beings and to turtles are common."
