I crave for mental exaltation


My mind rebels at stagnation.
Give me problems, give me work,
give me the most abstruse cryptogram,
or the most intricate analysis,
and I am in my own proper atmosphere.
But I abhor the dull routine of existence.
I crave for mental exaltation.
~ Arthur Conan Doyle

on the techie side, get hold of the book on design patterns and try to figure out few of the patterns. They should be very intersting and difficult to understand.

on personal side, make someones day, make him/her feel special ...

on the fun side, try reading about new sports, learn the details

i had heard (not verified myself) that in no novel did sir a.c.doyle actually say "elementary my dear watson" .. but simply said "its elementary my dear".. if anyone has access to verifying this.. let us know :)
