Your Top 5 Articles for 02/03 ~ Its all about the content

Content is king. That’s the maxim of the Internet. But it’s also the theme of this week’s Top Five. From R-rated content to incriminating DNA content, from the Grey Lady’s news content to the crazy lady’s text content to the contents of a water dish. We’ve even got Billy Crystal in “blackface.”

Great week, this week! And if you haven’t done it, yes, I’m still alienating my audience by insisting they fill out a reader survey. I only do it because I love you and well, you’re so special and I don’t want to screw it up. Smiley face! See you next week!

The science behind the cutest cat video you’ll see all day » DragonFlyEye.Net

This is not a cat. This is a highly-skilled physical sciences professional.

Funny how it happens, sometimes: watch a random cat video late on a Friday, write a quick post, and it becomes the hands-down most popular link of the day.

It has to do with the way they drink in general.
