Comment: Liberals vs Fundamentalist Conservative (Score 2, Insightful) 794

"So, why do many of us perceive Whole Foods and the Creation Museum so differently?"

Because Whole Foods appeals to the liberal crowd, while the Creation Museum appeals to the fundamentalist conservative crowd. The former is the base of the main-stream media, while the latter is the former's target of ridicule and derision. So which enterprise do you think is naturally going to be cast in a better public light by most media reporting?

Police listened to him brag to his friends about the heist, then triangulated his location. They arrived to find him with the stolen goods still in his hands. The question is, what caused his cell phone to dial 9-11? Does the device come with a conscience?"

The Internet Meme Timeline 235

CNet pointed out a great use of timeline creation site "Dipity" that has resulted a timeline of internet fads and memes. While there are some subtle inaccuracies and a few notable omissions, it seems to have touched on most of the big stuff. Everything from GOTO being considered harmful to "the website is down," it's a great trip down memory lane if you don't mind a few speedbumps like the goatse guy.
