    Note: This isn't the whole graphic, you'll have the jump to see it all. My wiener? A hop, skip AND the jump. So apparently global internet use is expected to quadruple by 2015 (if we can make it that long!), to one zettabyte a year. "How big is that compared to a breadbox?"... / Continue →

    This is a proposed warning to print in the front of science textbooks to remind children to take their educations seriously. Because, let's not kid ourselves -- nobody wants to be left out of the dino rodeo. Me most of all. Unfortunately, like learning to tie my own shoes or... / Continue →
