First Post

This is the beginning of my second blog. Let's see how long it lasts.

I am Mookie. I think memes are neat.

Memes are little tidbits of information that can be passed from one person to another. The idiom, "give a man a fish, and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime" demonstrates the power of memes. Memes are much like genes, in that they mutate over time and have replication mechanisms. They can be adaptive or maladaptive, or sometimes both. In this blog I wish to examine memes which I feel are important to the long-term survival of humans.
