Sometimes I see something in the paper, remember it and look it up online. Sometimes I see something interesting while surfing and mail or paste myself a note. Sometimes I just think of something to google while replying (the depends one was one of those). Sometimes something just bubbles up in my brain and I add it to the file of interesting links. The file is kind of a fuzzy queue, merged into the reply when I'm done composing. The file is distributed, since I post from different machines. To me, the most entertaining part is the syncronicity. Apologies to anyone offended. Reaction has been generally positive, sometimes newbies have been offended thinking it's personal. If it's in a flamefest, it might be personal.

I don't generally intend to be cruel, sometimes it is irresistable. There have been a few that have hung around for quite a while before I decide they are just too nasty. The one in this post would have been one of those, but since this is a self-referential post, I'll apologize now and post it. I know what it is like to have family members wiped out in a genocide.

Worst name for dog training business:
(Special award for not using the name for a decade, but every link
says it and so google pops it up first).
