Wall of sound reverb with jangly guitars? Don't mind me. I'll just be gazing at my shoes.

For mutual funds, count on...clownpenis.fart 

A lot of investment companies rushed onto the Internet, but Dillon and Edwards took their time. Sure, when they were ready, there was one web address left, but it's one you can count on.

When Yelp reviews go wrong

Pretty sure this guy meant his wife...or maybe not. I never realized Yelp reviews could reveal so much.

The reports of Newman's demise have been greatly exaggerated. 

Wayne Knight is alive and well. Go about your day.

MRW when I read comments on news stories

I read an article on Al Jazeera (first mistake) entitled On uses and abuses of historical memory.  

You can read it here:

The crux of the article suggested that comparing Russians to Nazis is historically inaccurate and a slap in the face to victims of the Nazis.

The next mistake was reading the comments following the article. This gem stood out:

" is the Israeli Jewish Zionist Mossad creating all this trouble in Kiev. Hillary Clinton IS Jewish Israeli Zionist Extremist. The West is simply JEALOUS of Vladimir Putin and Russia . Russia had only good intentions for Ukraine. It is The West causing these problems."

+Dana Blankenhorn I've read sources that claim 70,000. I hope the protests continue. It's good to know there are some Russians who aren't willing to blindly follow an authoritarian like Putin.
