Taylor Swift Buys Internet .Porn

That’s gotta be my clickbaitiest title ever.

So Yahoo’s homepage asks the question, “Why is Taylor Swift buying a .porn Web suffix?”* Obviously clickbait, but one worth investigating. The full story is that a new domain suffix – .sucks – is on the near horizon. The suffix .porn is already out there. Swift, Microsoft, and Harvard have reportedly already bought into .porn. While Swift.porn sounds tailor-made as a service for speedy, uh, delivery, something about combining “micro,” “soft,” and “porn” just seems meta-contradictory somehow.

I’m waiting for someone to start a nightskyradio.sucks site. I’ll know I’ve hit the big time once I’ve attracted hatefollowers.

* The little thumbnail teaser read “Swift buys Web’s .porn”. You know you would have clicked it too.

Pi In Your Face

Stolen without shame from John C. Wright

Tomorrow at 9.26 and 53 seconds, it will be

3/14/15 9:26:53

Which is pi.

This will happen only once in the history of time.

The world ends. Prepare yourself.

(unless you are not on military time, in which case it happens twice, am and pm)

A bit more numerologizing at his site. No mention, however, regarding apple pi, American Pi, four of fish and finger pi, or private investigators. Disappointing, as one would expect a man of his intellect and wit to have a finger in every pi.
