Febreze (and other air fresheners actually) is just below perfumes/colognes, and that's just below dead skunks in terms of smells that offend my nose.

Windows 8 is a toned, stylish, polished professional athlete. But it’s wearing clown makeup, and that creates a serious image problem. ~PCWorld Article

I don't think you need to wait, just move the mouse a bunch.

YouTube is good. ;D

I think it's a bit of a pompous nod, too. ;)

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

Somebody already posted the YouTube one, which doesn't work for me unless I access Google's cache (which Chrome helpfully links in its place). In Firefox, I just get a blank page. >:( All scripts and cookies are allowed.

With Opera I just get a connection error, and with both Chrome and Firefox all I get is a blank page, so it seems pretty broken :P So I just went to Youtube and saw a big add about Titanic in 3D, so I though it was April's fools... but sadly it isn't :o

XKCD display different comics based on your browser, OS?, and location. Firefox Windows 7 Michigan, I get a comic about some girl from California saying the Michigan guy is not that tough because of a simple earthquake, but come winter, the girl is whining like a baby.

Also, the width (and height?) of your browser affects the size of the comic as well. (If you get a comic about a snake, you need a 1920 width window to see the whole thing)

Febreze (and other air fresheners actually) is just below perfumes/colognes, and that's just below dead skunks in terms of smells that offend my nose.

Windows 8 is a toned, stylish, polished professional athlete. But it’s wearing clown makeup, and that creates a serious image problem. ~PCWorld Article

Child free Cabins on WestJet! New service called Kargo Kids.

XKCD [xkcd.com] display different comics based on your browser, OS?, and location. Firefox Windows 7 Michigan, I get a comic about some girl from California saying the Michigan guy is not that tough because of a simple earthquake, but come winter, the girl is whining like a baby.

Heh, I get a comic that mentions Hockey, the CBC, the northern lights, and clouds.

edit: the one I got changes a bit based on window size too.
