April Fool’s Day really sucks. You can’t believe anything you read online or receive in email. It’s gotten ridiculous, and most of the “jokes” suck harder than a factory full of vacuum cleaners. Bring on tomorrow.

Oh, and drive it coast to coast on 10 gallons of fuel.

Sound ridiculous? Maybe not.

WatchMojo has posted their list of the top 10 classic comedy duos (I suppose “classic” is why Fry and Laurie or Jay and Silent Bob aren’t listed). There are some great clips in here, with the net effect being you’ll want to scour YouTube for fuller-length material.

Carl Reiner turns 91 today, so here he is in one of the funniest scenes from one of the funniest episodes of one of the funniest sitcoms of all time. Please to enjoy.

Endless Loop

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013


I was happy to see that CNETnoted feedly in its list of six must-have Android apps, so I wanted to comment on the article.

To comment on the article, one needs to register. CNET conveniently offers an option to “quickly sign up” with Facebook, so I did. Or so I thought.

I sign in with Facebook, then I’m taken to a screen that asks me if I’m new to CNET. I am, so I tick the box that says I’ve read the terms of use and privacy policy (which, of course, I haven’t) and click the “New CNET Member” button … which takes me to a “Thanks for signing up” screen which, when I close it, takes me back to the “Join CNET” screen, which, if I close that window and try to comment on the story (since, after all, I’m now signed up), takes me to a screen that asks me if I’m new to CNET.

Rinse and repeat.

C’mon, CNET — you’re a techie site. You, of all sites, shouldn’t be delivering this sort of endless loop to users.
