In A Better World

...this is the sort of thing that "Japanese Spam" would refer to. 





Of course, that is dubious in an entirely different way.

Internet Navigation Failure...

For some reason the URL for The London Telegraph is taking me to The Onion





At least, I HOPE that's what is happening. 

UPDATE 10 minutes later :

A cautionary note. Take a moment between staring in horror at the above hyperlink and re-reading Harrison Bergeron to peruse this post by Popehat which Ace discusses at length here. Neither post discusses the story linked above, but focus on another recent infuriating headline; one that turned out not to quite match the facts at hand. Both posts should be read in full by everyone.

Back to the idiocy at hand...

The scary thing about this advertising story is that in this day and age, is that it's not actually inconceivable. 

John C. Wright points out an indirect ramification of this story. 
 Science fiction writers often show the folly of some trend in modern life by envisioning a darkly humorous future where that trend is carried to an absurd extreme. When real life exceeds the imagined absurdity, my life as a science fiction writer grows difficult. [/quote]

On the other hand, this must mean we are finally living in the future....
....just not the one we'd hoped for.

Amazing Facts!


I got home and noted that I had acquired some spam...13 pages of it in my comments dashboard. Well, I didn't have time to deal with it then so I flitted off to school with the intention of dealing with it later. 

However upon arriving home I noted that all 13 pages were gone. This means something. By applying Occam's Shamwow to the problem, I was able to figure out  how this miracle occurred. This blog previously noted that Sydney is currently beset by an amphibious assault of green...things

Pixy lives in Sydney.

Thus Pixy is responsible for the seaside phenomena and is using the quality cabbages to thwart spam. 



I have no idea how this can possibly work. However, I don't write code so I shouldn't judge. 

Some might suggest that correlation is not causation, but if that were the case, we would not know that UFOs are piloted by Bigfoots (and are attracted to drunks without cellphone cameras for some reason) but thanks to Occam's Shamwow we do!

Anyway...Thanks Pixy!

Pixy's Plan

As many of you know, our Webmaster resides in Sydney. Some of us have suspected that he may be up to something but had no idea what that might be.



The only question now is why.

UPDATE: So this happened on Pixy's blog the same day the story broke. I can only assume the two actions are somehow connected. This must be an exceedingly elaborate scheme.
