A Beatles Moment and One Other Weird Aside

Do you think Rocky Raccoon's girl Lil/Nancy ran off with another guy because somewhere in the Black Mining Hills of South Dakota he knocked her up and she had to leave for Minnesota to get an abortion? That carrying permit didn't do him much good either. Seems like a fairly anti-conservative song, but then again, it was Lennon.

I was interviewing a programmer on Friday, the fresh out of college sort hauled in by my company to do a round of interviews with several groups - i.e. there's a really good chance we'd like to hire you, we just have to see where you'd fit best (we didn't mention our new microcubes to him - after all, if we get him into one, he might not realize there are larger versions). He did a lot of hand gesturing, and on the back of his right hand was a fairly serious scar. So every few minutes my questioning train was mentally interrupted by the thought, "He knows about Fight Club." Of course I didn't ask him about it, the first rule of Fight Club is you don't talk about Fight Club. Well...and there's not enough room to have fight club in my new cube, we'd have to move it down the hall.

Actually, it was McCartney. But you're young; it wouldn't be fair to expect you to know these things.
