Sure the internet might have been originally created for commerce or military communication, it is obvious that it now exists solely for wasting time. I am a victim of this as well. In a few moments, I will post this blog and then go to slashfilm.com for a while. Then I'll get bored with that and surf on over to half.com. After a few minutes of checking on my inventory I'll probably find my way to a blog or two. Then it is on to youtube to watch that grape smashing lady. After that I'll go to soonersports.com and finally to facebook.
While on facebook, I will probably notice that one of my "friends" has posted a new note containing 25 things that I didn't know about him or her. These are often shocking revelations. Thankfully, I have dodged the "tagging" bullet and have not yet been required by the facebook laws to write my own list. That comes as a relief to both you and me. I mean, do you really need to know that my favorite Christopher Guest movies is "Waiting for Guffman" or that I got my nipples pierced when I was a freshman in college? Too much information? You are probably right.
Yet that didn't stop me from cruising facebook and collecting 25 of my favorite things I didn't know about 25 people that I know. And though I have absolutely no permission from the authors, I have posted them below. I like to think of this blog as a celebration of thought and humor. But today, it is a celebration of you. And you are crazy-weird.
The top 25 things I didn't know about you are...
