Wow. Penny for NASA, eh?
 
I'd like to interrupt your hopefully quiet evening with this startling set of numbers:

NASA Education Budget: $100 million (2013 request)
McDonald's Happy Meal marketing Budget: $92 million (2011 actual)

Can I have a side of fries with my less educated future?

An epic tale of router conquest and glory.
Two of my very favorite lines include:
"But then one gray morning did Internet Explorer 6 no longer load The Google"
"...with a resounding click he opened Internet Explorer 6 and gazed deep into its depths, past the Yahoo toolbar, the MSN toolbar, the Ask.com toolbar, and the AOL toolbar..."
Thanks to Guy Kawaski for finding this gem!

If you played SimCopter as a kid, this will bring back some great memories.
