I guess no one's job is irreplaceable by a computer nowadays.

And (off-topic) what's with NyQuil's new formula? Pseudafed-free?!? What's the point of sleeping through the night if I can't breathe through my nose? Bastards.

Oh, and somehow I missed it: this past May 3rd was my five-year 'Bloggiversary!
That episode of "House" was the weirdest thing ever.

Charles Martinet: the voice of Mario, to be sure, but I wasn't aware how much other work he's done.
Everything you wanted to know and more (much more) about "Paul's Boutique".

I guess if you're a Super Smash Bros. fan you already know the big secret, but if you're familiar with the games and haven't heard, there's a new version coming out next year for the Wii.

Watch the trailer. Make sure you stick around after what you think is the ending for one of the biggest chuckles in gaming history.

Another Great Idea

So it's always a little creepy when you find out someone who blogs has died and you go to their 'blog and their last post is about what movie they saw last or something having to do with economics and then there are tons of comments from people saying how sad they are or how sudden this is or how much the 'blogger was loved.

So my idea is for a simple bot which would track your blog for new posts and if their hadn't been any posts in a while (you could set the period: if you blog every day, you may want to set the period to a few days. If you're less dedicated, perhaps a week or two) and if the bot (in this case acting like a dead man's switch) detects no posts in that period, it'll post to your blog a "final blog post" that you've written before hand. You know, the usual "Well, dear friends, if you are reading this is means that I'm dead or have gone on hiatus." and so on.

I think this would give your readers a sense of closure and could really catch on.

Can this be for real? I guess if it's inspired its own YTMND it has to be real.

That's still really weird, though.
