GOOD JOB AI AI

"BEIJING (Reuters) - A chimpanzee in a northwest China zoo has quit smoking after 16 years with the help of her keepers, official media reported.

The staff, worried about her declining health, weaned 27-year-old "Ai Ai" off tobacco by distracting her with entertainment and a tastier diet, Xinhua news agency said."

If Ai Ai can do it, so can we. Of course, we need some zookeepers to distract us with entertainment and a tastier diet.

Any volunteers?

On Web 2.0 Definitions
The buzz has been increasing over the past few days on what is Web 2.0, and what it is not.
Took some time to surf for fun, imagine that, and came across your blog and I'm glad I did. Good stuff. I've started a site that has educational children toys recently. Take a visit if you have some time. It has a lot of good choices concerning educational children toys.

Geez, a spam comment before even I can respond.

Here's a deal for you... You and Jackson quit smoking and I will get S&M an awesome piece of gear. Anybody else want in on this? Rightbackatyou, Hue, Hazmat, etc...?

Both of you guys would have to do it together since the proximity would be too tempting if one didn't decide to want to make a go of bagging it. As far as zookeepers, distractions, and tastier diet goes... Have Jackson cook dinner before the two of you go out to smoke free strip clubs.

well it'd have to be real good gear, like I'd need to see the word 'Neve' somwhere, or a letter number combo like 'U47' 'LA2" maybe....

Yeah, if you're going to do something for our health you better make it worth our while, dammit!

I'd like to know why the chimp was smoking in the first place.

And yeah, Tony. I think it would be worth it to go record there smoke-free.

The chimp started smoking after a bad break up (I'm not making this up).

You non smokers already have the restaurants, the bars, the clubs, the offices, the elevators, the airplanes, and the theatres. Used to be that to play a live show you had to fight your way through the haze. Now you're all spoiled!

Of course, for a couple of channels of Neve, I might just change my tune. Then again, if we saved the money we blow on smokes, we could buy the Neves pretty quick like, but then what would we smoke while we used them?

I once knew a guy who smoked dope like it was ciggarettes, he didn't have any Neve gear though...

Actually, that's a good point, which I know you already realize. With all the money you spend on cigarettes you could afford to buy a lot of the gear and/or software you've been wanting but say you have no money for.

She started smoking after the death of her partner in 1989and became a chain smoker after her daugther moved to another zoo in 1997. She kicked of the habit with the help of gym exercises, music and fried food. Now and then she may listen to her zookeeper's walkman.
