Sometimes xkcd is brilliantly funny, sometimes it's head-scratchingly confusing, and then there are ones like today's where I could spend hours examining it.

Somehow, this would not surprise me.

For my American friends — we need just over 2100 more "signatures" to get this petition to "Direct the Patent Office to Cease Issuing Software Patents" to be reviewed by Whitehouse staffers and the relevant policy experts [1].

This isn't binding in anyway, but if you're not a fan of software patents, seems like a good way to make your opinion known!

This is pretty cool. The video linked from the doodle is like a C64 Freddie Mercury video game.

Q: "Are there people at Google who are big fans of Freddie Mercury?"

A: The Google Doodle for his birthday, September 5.

(Link goes to Australian Google, which already has it up...it's delayed in the US due to Labor Day.)

(Google's official YouTube version of the Doodle. Watch it in HD! Freddie Mercury Google Doodle)

The beach at Cedar Point was beautiful and relaxing this morning.

I'm glad you were up early enough to capture such a beautiful photo while the rest of us were still snoozing away.

If you go to the xkcd.com website the mouseover text is particularly depressing.

Ugh, it's the blue-ray version of Greedo shot first

I expect that we'll see the same type of progression of films that we've seen before. First we'll have this version, two years later we'll have the old "special edition " version, then another two to three years after that we'll finally get the original version that everyone wanted in the first place.

If anyone is looking for some reading suggestions, here is an interesting list. While I definitely agree with many of them there are a few selections and missing selections that I find confusing. C.S Lewis's Space trilogy makes the list, but his Chronicles of Narnia doesn't. I can understand Narnia not being there, but it is a better series than his Space series. Anyway, I definitely will be checking out some of the books there that I haven't read yet.
