From YouTube geeks Paul and Storm (geekandsundry), a plea to George R. R. Martin, author of epic series A Song of Ice and Fire, to write f**king faster. You know, so production on Game of Thrones won't come to a standstill.

Any delay in nudity, incest, and deaths of main characters will not be tolerated.

(Not Safe For Work -- language.)

fahrenheit 451 ray bradbury ray bradbury tribute status code 451 - 6365873664

Software developer and Ray Bradbury fan Tim Bray has proposed a new HTTP status code inspired by Fahrenheit 451 that would reflect Internet censorship.

Bray's recommendation is that when access to a website is denied for legal reasons, the user is given the status code 451:

We can never do away entirely with legal restrictions on freedom of speech. On the other hand, I feel that when such restrictions are imposed, they should be done so transparently; for example, most civilized people find Britain's system of superinjunctions loathsome and terrifying. While we may agree on the existence of certain restrictions, we should be nervous whenever we do it; thus the reference to the dystopian vision of Fahrenheit 451 may be helpful. Also, since the Internet exists in several of the many futures imagined by Bradbury, it would be nice for a tip of the hat in his direction from the net, in the year of his death.

The proposal will be considered in July by the Internet Engineering Task Force, the body that makes such decisions.

Stoner brothers Mickey and Sam were just "driving around in circles, listening to music, havin' a good time, listenin' to Led Zeppelin," when they noticed a house on fire. So the pair knocked on the door and saved an Ohio family from certain death. Or at least a dramatic rescue situation.

MJ FTW.

The day Pat Tillman's wife, Marie, learned he had been killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan, she unsealed his "in case I die" letter to her that he had penned a year earlier:

It's difficult to summarize 10 years together, my love for you, my hopes for your future, and pretend to be dead all at the same time . . . I simply cannot put all this into words. I'm not ready willing or able. ... Through the years I've asked a great deal of you, therefore it should surprise you little that I have another favor to ask. I ask that you live.

Now, the letter is included in a new book that tells the story of the couple's 11-year love affair through the letters they exchanged. The Letter: My Journey Through Love, Loss, & Life is out Tuesday.

Here's the story behind newly minted grad Brenna Martini and the best-kept secret EVER.

I graduated High School this week. When my Dad said he had a present for me I thought I was getting some cheesy graduation card. But what I received was something truly priceless. Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of Oh the Places You'll Go, by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled and said that it meant a lot and that I loved that book. But then he told me "No, open it up." ...On the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. I start tearing up but I'm still confused. He tells me "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." He managed to keep this book a secret for 13 years, and apparently everyone else in my life knew about it! Yes the intended effect occured... I burst out in tears. Sitting there reading through this book there are encouraging and sweet words from every teacher I love and remember through my years in this small town. My early teachers mention my "Pigtails and giggles," while my high school teachers mention my "Wit and sharp thinking.." But they all mention my humor and love for life. is astounding to receive something this moving, touching, nostalgic, and thoughtful. I can't express how much I love my Dad for this labor of love.
