On It's a Sign

It also turns out that the NYT still can't serve up video properly. I mean, am I the only one who has always had trouble with their videos and continues to with the fancypants new video site?

On How To Order A Croissant

I wholeheartedly agree. I have lived in different european countries for a while, and most people pronounce English words with the pronunciation of the language they are speaking. Interestingly, "euro" is pronounced differently in these different countries and it is weirdly disconcerting to hear somebody talking about the price of something in, say, Italian, and then drop the German oy-Roh in the middle of a sentence.

At any rate, I once ordered a krwa-san at a rural Dunkin' Donuts and the response scarred me. Thank you for this important article!

On Governments Dumb

Is this related (timing-wise) to the recent talk about how Britain was involved in the spying on everybody at the climate summit in 2009? It's hard to keep track of it all. Is it Friday yet?

Also, is this 21st century book burning?

On The Armored, Possibly Dinosaur-Eating "Devil Frog"

A really big frog that is mostly mouth?! It's probably just a baby and the REAL one is, like, the size of a brontosaurus. Wait...
