  • Wiki Degrees of Kevin Bacon

    As I was checking something out on Wikipedia today I had a random thought about the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Could I get to Kevin Bacon on Wikipedia from the page I was currently on? Let\’s find out.

  • Reflections on Terminator Salvation

    WARNING: Spoilers ahead. Turn back if you do not want to know plotlines (or holes in plotlines) from Terminator Salvation. You have been warned.

  • Twins Apologists

    Actually, I should actually open that title up and call it \”Minnesota Sports Franchise Apologists on Startribune.com\”. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is I was reading a recap of a Twins chat with Joe C in today\’s Strib, and he started getting a little snippy with some of the comments. I\’ve seen the…
