Quote of the day

From the always-entertaining Brian Micklethwait on the dangers of writing blog entries in advance and then getting them to automatically post while you’re away on holiday:

I’ve never really felt right with that.  What if an atom bomb goes off, and there I am still blogging about, basically, kittens?  (I know, the internet would not be at its best either, but you get my point.)

Yes, that would be a little difficult to explain to any survivors.

  • I don’t know…I might appreciate something nice and fluffy like kittens instead of the doom and gloom news about something I pretty much know happened

  • Goblin > Sure. Nothing like a small feline to take your mind of your impending slow, painful death through starvation and radiation sickness.

    DW > It’s a tenuous link, but I’ll allow it.

  • heheheeh … funny

    its like what if you die and you are still blogging beyond the grave about kittens .. instead of descibing hell – your new home – to your earthly friends

  • Darkwing
  • DC > Kittens in hell? Eh? What?

    DW > Only slightly more acceptable. This is officially the last time I mention anything feline in one of my posts.

  • The answer to Brian’s concern is never to post anything except trivial gibberish. That way it doesn’t matter what happens in the world. It’s worked for me, anyway!

    Yeah, well, if the world was overrun with killer mutant kittens, then he would be on the button wouldn’t he?

    Po´s last blog post was: Can you make head or tail of this? (Note: 6000 miles… is not responsible for the content of external internet sites)

  • Yes – I mean, those little kitty cats could get mutated by the nuclear explosion and then what? Or maybe survivors would enjoy a dose of cute overload?
