Re: 1229:Screensaver

This does remind me, why aren't the stars in the screensaver blue-shifted? BadAstronomy should write an article on it :)

Re: 0990: “Plastic Bags”

This never happens in eco-friendly Germany. Plastic bags cost money and double bagging is literally unheard-of =] In some supermarkets you can get a cheap flimsy free plastic bag, but you have to ask and the cashier has to get it from under the table =b glad to see that our friends over the ocean ar...

Judging by the fact that most people break up, get laid, and get drunk on Friday, I think Friday is my day :)

Re: Run 10,000 miles

Re: 0903: "Extended Mind"

I got into a loop as well. My starting point was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Joplin_tornado and I got as far as Aristotle, from which article I went back to greek and into a language loop :)
Still, Aristotle almost counts as philosophy, so I'd give it half the victory points.

This could have been good, I guess. But it was bad. It may well have been the worst xkcd I have ever read. (Also: *high-fives milN for registering only for the purpose of commenting on this comic*) Thanks :) I was going to register to comment about the "how to pronounce brackets" discussi...
