The people who know me well know that I tend to enjoy the occasional conspriacy theory or two (or twenty- three) and the Verified Facts website is a hoot!

Yes, the “facts” there are made up (probably based off a Marko v Chain) but I still find the results entertaining. I mean, how can I not love this?

I don't bother with news—I figure, if it's important enough, it'll filter through, and apparently, it does to a rather frightening degree

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
