Idle Fun

The original: failblog
For those of the coyote fix-it school of thought: thereifixedit
Along the same lines, but focused on cars: thatwillbuffout
Minorly disturbing weirdness: pictureisunrelated
Finally some success: succeedblog
OK, those are some of my daily rest stops on the information superhighway.

Can't honestly say that I ever though of things this way...

...but it is at least a little witty: Why Apple is Catholic and PCs are Protestant.

The most important idea you will read about all year.

To paraphrase from Stephen Hawking: mankind must figure out how to spread out to the stars, or we will face extinction.
Damn, but he's right again.

Old Humor

A retiring friend was cleaning out his office last week and stumbled across a dusty, stained photocopy of 56 B.C. and All That.  So of course someone has put it on the web, in multiple places by multiple people as it turns out.  Which somehow made me think of the old Laws Concerning Food and Drink.
Yeah, it's old humor.  I wouldn't mail these around (it would be uncomfortably close to a sort of Glurge Lite), but they really are funny.  If you haven't read them in a while, or never heard of them in the first place, well, there are the links.
