    I don't think the concept is a joke. I actually think they are a unique idea. However the execution of them is totally flawed and Trump steps all over them with his tweets and baggage. There needs to be more of a build up with them before, and a constant focus on them during the week without distraction. They should also tie in with some executive order or legislation about to be signed, not just hang out there on their own accomplishing nothing more than a photo op.

    I guess it will take a future president to do them right.

    They need to last longer than a week. Maybe a fortnight.

    Sadly, I think few outside of engineering know what a fortnight is any more.

    Please - these weeks are relatively meaningless. And my post was purely humor. But it's sad for Trump that every time he has a "week" - it's overshadowed by bad press about something else.

    Yep.

    I didn't realize fortnight had anything to drop with engineering. I thought it was just a UK thing.

    Don't be silly. It's when you put a blanket over a card table and every kid in the house that was invited to the sleepover and isn't a girl gets under there with a flashlight and a comic book. Everyone knows that.

    Thanks for that wikipedia link. Very amusing (in a half-bakery sort-of way). :)

    Wow I kind of liked the half-bakery's write-up there on Zigzag Moiré Emojis to Control Marauding Robots: Dazzle flashcards to distract and mollify robots operating outside of their original behavioral parameters. I was drawn to thinking how maybe the WH staff could get Trump to stop tweeting if they got one of those.

    Yup. They have some good stuff there!

    Brookstone needs to sit up and take notice. ;)
