"Leonard's Still Asleep" Digest

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2007 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Leonard is still asleep, so I can't draw his attention to these:

  1. A groan-inducing pun about Ender's Game.
  2. Sadly, the only way to get Seth to write a blog entry is to make an error in modifying a Latin-cum-English phrase. For all I know he's been gritting his teeth over "Cogito, Ergo Sumana" for ages.
  3. "The algorithms of Matt Cutts!"
  4. Andrew and Claudia, I miss you.

    From the outside, I can imagine the American habit of supporting political arguments by making reference to "The Founders" seems bizarre, if not necrophilic. A rational interpretation of this belief is that Americans think these million-year-old dudes in powdered wigs were some kind of prophets, or supermen, capable of pulling eternal truths - inaccessable to mere mortals - from the ether, and distilling them into perfect words to endure for all time. The Bill of Rights as the new Ten Commandments, or something like that.

    And you'll like the kicker, Leonard.

  5. NSFW (unless you, like Leonard, work from home) Chris Rock bit on prescription and illegal drugs.
  6. Likable guy? "Oh, far from it. No one likes me. Will you be my friend?"
