You love it. Big fan of DARPA's Initiative on Countering Terrorism? Pick up a Total Information Awareness thong or lunchbox - but, you already knew that.

What, no Valentine's Day cards?

Bah, t-shirt, shmee-shirt, there are too many lousy t-shirts with pithy remarks on them.

On the otherhand, thinking of my wife in one of those thongs is certainly making me all hot and bothered...

I just bought the Total Information Awareness snuggle bear for my sweetie.

But what the hell? The order system said I couldn't use an apostrophe in my gift card message? So CafePress doesn't have a programmer smart enough to escape apostrophes out before database inserts? I know most people don't care, but that is just about the most blatant admission of dumbness I've seen lately. "Hmmm..... Contractions keep breaking my SQL inserts. I'll just strip those out. Apostrophes are unnecessary. Good. Fixed."

Did you know your username is German for "Die Jesse Helms!!!"? That's offensive.

y6y6y6: my NAME has an apostrophe in it. and two capital letters. i was as surprised as you were. back in the dawn of my surfing era (say, 1995) i was accustomed to having to mangle my name in web forms. i haven't seen anything like that in years now. interestingly enough, they give the typical warning that the billing info must match the credit card info or the transaction will fail. my credit card has my correct name, apostrophe and all, and yet my transaction did not fail.
