It's not going to happen, but I had considered doing a Secret Santa exchange this year between my friends. Set up four levels of dollar amounts ($0-10, $10-20, $20-30, $30+) and let each participant choose a level, then randomly assign Secret Santas within each level. It would be a neat way to get my friends involved in something new, but there would be a lot of deadbeats, and after WPS3 crashing and burning, I really don't want to get involved in something like that right now. I don't think I'll be doing any new friend-interactive things until next February when I do my annual Oscars contest. Any comments on the Secret Santa thing? Was I wrong to give up on it?

I'm surprised nobody started a discussion about the brawl yet. (link) How is it we've gone in less than a century from athletes as paragons of gentlemanly conduct to athletes as brutish, hairpin-trigger thugs? Go »

The celebrity in the picture is the horse. There is a pending guess for the jockey. What do you think, should it be accepted as valid, especially since I have now publicly revealed that the horse is the answer? Go »

Altered States

I stumbled upon a history lesson today when browsing unrecognized U.S. states. How different would the country be today if Franklin, or Deseret, or Nickajack, or Westsylvania had become states? Go »

Culinary Tourism

It's a growing trend: Visiting a place because you want to eat the food there. My mother has enjoyed several tours of California wine country, and I can think of several site users who recently enjoyed European vacations and must have appreciated the food. Go »
