* The search results for "extricate" and "shrapnel" (individually) on Google will lead you to other weblogs. Together, they will lead you to Now This.

* Bravo, Damien! Good one! Reminds me of Seth's tagline: "The second law of thermodynamics states that any time you do anything constructive, there is a less-organized waste product. This is mine."

I have no sentence. *sniff* Just not feeling very creative these days.
