Yet from this latest Census count, we find that this projection overestimates the population by a multiple of 20,000."

Could this really be the end of an era
? Remember vBay
(classic!) and v|net
? I want some good parody, damnit! (Sorta like this, Matt -- well done.)
I can't tell if this
is an April Fool's parody of a certain someone
or not, but have a great weekend! I'm still digging!
This is one of the funniest office pranks
I've seen in a while. A few months ago, I proposed filling a coworker's office with ballons, but the packing peanuts are much better (and funnier). [stolen from brig
