90% of the cartoons that were made solely for Saturday morning are crap regardless of the era.

I say nay nay! In the 90s, the networks (particularly the WB) began the realize that the game had changed and started to up the ante with the likes of Batman: The Animated Series and halfway decent Dragonball Z redubs.

Of course my 90% figure was being generous. But really, what gold nuggets? Sure you may have some nostalgia for old episodes of Scooby-Doo or The Superfriends, until you actually go back and watch them and you realize that the makers figured that kids will watch any poorly-made crap they threw up on the screen. And sadly, they were right.

I wonder if moving to a new household standard away from the century-old Edison screw would get us better lighting solutions. It seems much of the Sturm und Drang around using CFLs and LEDs is simply all the extra electronics and engineering needed to get them to conform to the old standard. I'm sure many of the people who rail against CFLs are surrounded by good ol' tube florescent bulbs while at work, out shopping, etc. with nary a complaint, except perhaps some issues with light balance and aesthetics.

Where a service promised to email personal messages to friends and family "left behind" after the rapture. The three members who founded it would log in every day, assuming that if at least two of them failed to log in, being god-fearing Christians, the rapture has occurred. You can see where this is going.

And it's been around since at least the 1980's, is the worry that you'll be the one the ones that just misses out on the discovery of practical age reversal and effective immortality. Lying there in your hospital bed, listening to NPR, hearing that the cure for aging should be on the market within the next three years and it's for real this time and that's when you flatline.

You see in the pics in the article how the headphones say BOSE in letters you could read literally from across a football field? Where does it say "Surface" on the tablet? That little foam handle? Slap "Surface" on every side of those protective frames. This is the NFL! They don't do subtle.

Even better, go algorithmic. Whenever a Surface tablet appears on the screen, slap a "Surface, The Official Tablet of the NFL" graphic in the corner.

And what, no one thinks to stick an "It's not an iPad, it's a Surface" Post-It somewhere in the damn booths?
