Things are a little better in places where there’s some actual competition. Here in Ann Arbor you can opt between AT&T U-Verse (which is what I have) and Comcast. When I say “a little better” I mean very little, but you take what you can get. This is part of why I’m hoping Google Fiber eventually comes to AA.

Tobuscus (Toby Turner) is a guilty pleasure. Pretty much every one of his YouTube videos will leave me in tears cause I’m laughing so hard.

It’s every video game character’s worst nightmare: The Glitch.
It’s the digital equivalent to the Mayan apocalypse.
The sad part is that it would probably have had a better chance at winning than Mitt Romney had.
That day was not a good day.
