Yesterday MSNBC had an article on the best way to waste time on the internet, and one of those was the Fail Blog. It was new to me and completely hilarious, so I thought I would paste a few:

If I didn't already have 3 Obama t-shirts (well, technically 2 haven't arrived yet), I think I would get this one too: Barack/Buffy t-shirt.

Marketwatch had a story on this morning with 3 extremely useful websites related to the phone:

- Ever needed to call someone, but didn't really want to talk to them? allows you to go straight to voicemail.

- Ever needed an excuse to get off the phone? allows you to play sound effects like a crying baby, a ringing doorbell, a hungry dog, or even a cow (!).

- Ever needed to get out of a meeting? allows you to set up a fake call to be placed to your phone when you need it.

Serenity made in the game Spore!

Has anyone played the game yet?  What do you think?

What was McCain thinking?

The latest story is that she was only interviewed in the vetting process the day before she was selected, which is probably why so many stories are seeing light now, like the continuation of the abuse-of-power story; the link that her husband and she as well have to an Alaskan secessionist political party; the earmarks that she secured as mayor of Wasilla, which goes to her credibility as a reformer; and video from her speaking at her local church discussing how U.S. troops should only be "out on a task that is from God" along with other views that seem to be already hurting Republican efforts to woo Jewish voters.

This calls into serious question McCain's whole vetting process, and therefore McCain's judgement and wisdom.

Is that really the shakeup that the campaign was looking for?

What the frak?  Faux curse sweeps geek nation

Actually the article is about how it is moving on from the fans to other areas of popular culture.

I need to remark on the fantastic-ness of DragonCon. But now, for something completely different:

I haven't posted much on the race lately, but this is totally cracking me up.

Yesterday, McCain was asked by a Politico reporter how many houses he and his wife own, and he couldn't remember.

Thus, the new Obama ad, "Seven".

For those with a gmail account, this article points out why it is important to turn on a new feature that encrypts all your mail traffic, not just the authentication page.

To turn this on, go to Settings in the upper right-hand corner of your mail page, and then on the "Browser connection" setting at the bottom of the page choose "Always use https".  I had to log out and back in to see it take effect.

The first Act is up!!

If you haven't heard, this is a Joss Whedon project starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day.

ETA:  It is 13:49 long, and whatever you do, go and watch it!

I've been meaning to make this post for a few days now.

Besides the usual rhetoric, and the Obama-Clinton "Unity" event, not much has happened in the contest, and so I have not made many comments.  However, one interesting thing that did happen last Wednesday was that David Plouffe, Obama's campaign manager, gave a presentation to the press that detailed the campaign's targeted states for now. 

On a separate but related note, my new favorite electoral projection sight is FiveThirtyEight, which does an amazing amount of polling analysis every day.  Their discussion from June 26th of the above meeting (sorry there is no direct link) was very interesting, especially if you are an Obama supporter.

Here is a link to a teaser video for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, the next Joss Whedon project starring Neil Patrick-Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day!

Yay, the primary is finally over!  Clinton hasn't conceded yet, but there is no way now for her to get the needed number of delegates.

On to the White House! Go Obama!

Six Degrees of Wikipedia

You can find the shortest route between any two articles.  Fantastic!

And just in case you were wondering, the shortest distance between chromodynamics and wordplay is 3 clicks:
quantum chromodynamics -> James Joyce -> Lolita -> Word play
