From Boing Boing. Love this site. Gives us a true picture of the absolute madness that we live in.

I'm not sure which of these two lists is funnier.

We are in the middle of the so called information revolution
A time when all the collected knowledge of all the greatest minds that have ever existed are no further than a mouse click away, a time that can completely change the course of history much akin to the Gutenberg press but no we have to concern ourselves with guitar hero 3....
I like the conservative web-opedia. It's obviously for either the horrendously repressed and the deeply terrified. In either case there seems to be as many of those as folks who like Heroes. A possible connection?
