I just found out in the most obnoxious way possible(1) about Pseudoscience:
Pseudoscience is a comic published in The Tech, the official newspaper of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Many posts are local to Cambridge or MIT, but others are not. All readers are welcome. First comic was published February, 2007.
Yes, this blog has been in circulation for two years and I just found out. [Update 2/18/2009: The blog is new, the material is not. I still think we are friends.] This offends me very, very deeply because I was not directly informed by the creator about it. I thought he was my friend. Now I know better.
In any case, this comic showcases what is the most useful application I’ve ever seen for Microsoft Excel. We all know Powerpoint’s main strength lies in porn distribution. Now we just need to figure out what Word is supposed to be used for.
I have added the link to the sidebar, immediately steering millions of websurfers towards Pseudoscience. I hope their servers can handle the traffic influx. It’s extremely funny stuff.
As I randomly ran a Spotlight search for the word “Playboy” on my computer (for the articles! for the articles!) I stumbled upon an old email I wrote on January 2nd, 2003 to a friend. Today I’m publishing the email. Only the recipient’s name was changed in order to spare her from the embarrassment of being mentioned here:
As the end of yet another year rapidly approaches, one cannot help but to stop and look back at past experiences and accomplishments. Last year I did not make any new year’s resolutions, hence today I’m not a better person that I was last year (yes, there is still some room for improvement). This year will be different. I have carefully thought out 10 New Year’s Resolutions that I intend to stick to. I want to share them with you. As you will see, the bar is not too high so there is some chance for this to actually happen. I know you’re not a very good reader so I typed this very slowly so you can keep up.
Some people just seem to always go against change. These are the same people who are still playing Pong on little black and white TVs. They IM each other using ICQ. They browse the internet on 14.4 kbaud/s modems using Netscape Navigator. They still fax jokes to each other and carry a boombox around.
To join their group and stay behind in the dark ages, go here. If the group reaches a membership of five (5), then I will go back to the old layout. And if you send this email to all your friends, then Bill Gates and AOL will deposit $5 to your bank account for each of them.
