Quote of the Moment
"You should never stand in love's way, especially if love is driving a bus."
--R. M. Weiner
Net Toy of the Moment
Two shockwave games: sometimes you get the worm, and sometimes the worm gets to be you, or something. The first is the cooler by far, an interesting blend of frustrating game and art piece. Turns out the whole thing is based on this video short, a commercial for UK Compaq. Guess the video, by these guys takes out some of the mystery. Still, kind of neat to see.

Net Humor of the Moment
This poem is making the e-mail rounds, apparently compiled from actual quotes of our president:
I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It's a world of madmen and uncertainty
and potential mental losses.
Rarely is the question asked
Is our children learning?
Will the highways of the internet become more few?
How many hands have I shaked?
They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.
I know that the human being and the fish can coexist.
Families is where our nation finds hope, where our wings take dream.
Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Make the pie higher! Make the pie higher!
