What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo is still studying for lab test tonight

XKCD pretty much nails the virtuous Wiki cycle. Also ties into how Fox News generates their leads as well. In the morning, "There are rumors…" to the evening, "All the news is abuzz with…" (Pointed to by Dan)

Just how deep is the Mariana Trench? This deep. (with kewl R'yleh reference) (Grokked from matociquala)

ChiaLynn is now a real-goddamn-lawyer. (Congrats, BTW)

Some interesting things going on in the world of smart phones. Shades of "Apple's iPhone tracks where you go" only even more robust, and for all those other phones, not the iPhone. With this an all the other things going on, time to revise Alfred E. Newman.

So, what are some of those "burdensome and costly regulations" that those conservatives are all railing against? Well, apparently, cutting back on how much potatoes, empty carbs, sodium, and pizzas are in federally funded school lunches is a part of that. Pizza as a vegetable. Because, instead of say, trusting our government health and nutritional scientists, we'd rather do the free market solution of trusting the American Frozen Food Institute. What could go wrong, they've got the name "American" right in there. Shades of the Reagan administration classifying ketchup as a vegetable. So glad our conservative congress is focused on Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. (Grokked from Tobias Buckell)

Vince posts the Non-Sequiter comic that had me giggling over the weekend.
