One funny thing about that site is, since part of the disrespectful gesture is showing your enemy the sole of your shoe, most of these people are showing solidarity with the Iraqi journalist by giving the same insult to all that website's viewers.

I'm on record as saying shoe-throwing is an awesome gesture in general. My best friends growing up were a trio of mischievous brothers with whom I had most of my irresponsible childhood adventures. They were from a Muslim family of Turkish immigrants, and they taught me the meaning of shoe-throwing and sole-showing very early on. I'm pretty happy the gesture has now hit the big time.

Someone left a box of weird European chocolates out in the office; a business gift from some business people of business or something.

I grabbed one because free chocolate is usually full of win, but this one turned out to be full of liqueur. This was not a fun thing for me to find out by surprise; I'm teetotal, and alcohol in any form makes me gag. The smell alone is often enough to throw me a constitution penalty, let alone an unexpected syrupy mouthful. In the words of the great philosopher Algar, I think I'm gonna hurl.

Who leaves boozy candy in a corporate office? SRS BZNS. >:-[

Is YouTube selling a way to beat their stats?

Rob @ 3:28 PM

This is terribly interesting. YouTube is blocked at my day job, though, so I can't follow up on it yet. Anyone have more info?
