Geek Haiku

After sending out a Surreal Haiku, 
my friend Sam Goodman responded with one that he wrote:
"You want to be 1337?
'One Three Three Seven' is not
How '1337' is said, n00b."

P.C. Seasonal Greetings

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for
an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress,
non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday,
practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion
of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the
religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice
not to practice religious or secular traditions at all... and a fiscally
successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition
of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without
due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
contributions to society have helped make America great (not to imply that
America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only
'America' in the Western hemisphere), and without regard to the race,
creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual orientation of the wishee.

This wish is limited to the customary and usual good tidings for a period
of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting,
whichever comes first. 'Holiday' is not intended to, nor shall it be
considered, limited to the usual Judeo-Christian celebrations or
observances, or to such activities of any organized or ad hoc religious
community, group, individual or belief (or lack thereof).

Note: By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This
greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal, and is revocable at the
sole discretion of the wisher at any time, for any reason or for no reason
at all. This greeting is freely transferable with no alteration to the
original greeting. This greeting implies no promise by the wisher to
actually implement any of the wishes for the wishee her/himself or others,
or responsibility for the consequences which may arise from the
implementation or non-implementation of same. This greeting is void where
prohibited by law.

w00t !!!


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Expect cheers among hardcore online game enthusiasts when they learn Merriam-Webster's Word of the Year. Or, more accurately, expect them to "w00t."


"W00t," a hybrid of letters and numbers used by gamers as an exclamation of happiness, topped all other terms in the Springfield dictionary publisher's online poll for the word that best sums up 2007.

Thank you, Sir! May I have another?

from Wired:

In this clip, Britain's SkyNews takes a look at a moldable goo that's good at absorbing sharp blows.

"I'm sure there are defense applications," says Neatorama's Adam Stanhope, who unearthed the vid. Maybe. But even it not, it's fun to watch this guy in a funny hat get wacked in the head with a shovel.

"Feels like gritty Jell-O, protects like a stack of telephone books."

: We didn't start the viral...


Quite possibly the greatest collection of viral videos of all time, spanning back to "all your base" and possibly earlier - while set to a Billy Joel tune.

I especially like the goatse image: two hands stretching a circle

Doggie Divination

This morning, Cozy and I were sitting on the couch, and our dog Kasha came over.
She looked at us with imploring eyes, gave a couple of quiet barks, and stared at us.

"We can't read your mind," we told her, "you'll have to find some other way to communicate."
We first thought of employing The Amazing Kreskin to read her mind, then realized that dogs could use a Ouija board.
Picture this:
Three dogs are gathered around a Ouija board, each with its nose on the movable indicator.
It wanders around the board, pausing at various letters, reading their thoughts ...
"F" ... "O" ... "O" ... "D" 
"It's right AGAIN! Amazing!"
