The fact that there isn't an apostrophe in Veterans Day is fascinating to me, probably because I'm simple. Via the FAQ
of the Department of Veterans Affairs (also no apostrophes):
Q. Which is the correct spelling of Veterans Day?
a. "Veterans Day"
b. "Veteran's Day"
c. "Veterans' Day"
A. Veterans Day (choice a, above).
Veterans Day does not include an apostrophe but does include an "s" at the end of "veterans" because it is not a day that "belongs" to veterans, it is a day for honoring all veterans.
And until then, this

I don't know if it's more amazing that someone used "watch movies of boys peeing everywhere and on everything in the house and on ladies" as a keyword to get to UW, that we're 3rd on the page on Google for that search term, OR that it was a returning visitor that used that search term. I'm going with C, Alex, because I wonder how they got here the first time.
Update: And just like that it appears that the happy magic is over. All 30 lives have been extinguished.
If you go to ESPN.com and enter in the Konami Code
(up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, b, a enter), you'll get unicorns. Lots of them. This is amazing. It felt good to use the Contra Code again, though I think I got less than 30 unicorns.
A couple years ago you could log into ESPN Insiders by using the first name of a 2 name college as the user name and the second name as the pass word, for instance Login: Boston Password: College. I don't know if that was a feature, a bug, or user error, but it doesn't happen anymore.
I'm not going to embed this video, but here's the link to the Naked wizard being tasered
at Coachella. I don't think the guy is actually a wizard, though. You make the call. Be forewarned, there's a very naked guy in this video who thinks he is a wizard.

I never knew remuneration was a word. And remuneration means what I had thought renumeration meant. Renumeration? It means to recount something
At first, I thought this article
about Munchausen at work was a joke, but as I continued to read, it occurred to me that these people are serious. And by 'these people, I mean GQ/Style, not the people who make up problems to solve them, though, I suppose they are serious, too.
If the 18th-century German cavalry officer Baron Karl Friedrich Hieronymus von Munchausen were around today, he'd probably be in a white-collar firm somewhere faking problems so that he could fix themâ€”and he'd have plenty of company...First identified in 2007 by Nathan Bennett, a business-school professor at Georgia Tech, Munchausen at work leads employees to cook up phony office dramas that they themselves can solve to become heroes.
I actually think that this isn't something people are doing. People are usually able to solve problems they create, but not because they're creating the problems on purpose. Maybe I'm not giving people enough credit?
