Beep beep

Okay, I admit it. I’m a sucker for the Keyboard Cat Internet meme. The concept is simple: take a video on the Web that involves some sort of disaster, and mix in a cat playing a goofy tune on a keyboard. I have many Keyboard Cat favorites: the two people trying to wheelchair backwards down […]

My Magic 8-ball and 2009 predictions

My Magic 8-ball and 2009 predictions

I didn’t make predictions last year (although I did it in 2006 and 2007), but I thought it would be worth giving it a run this year. I asked the Magic 8-ball page at Purdue five questions, and I totally believe its predictions are just as valid as the ones I made two years ago. […]
