Things I could write about

  • How one of the two teams that I didn't want to win the World Cup actually won the World Cup
  • How to alienate your weblog readers
  • Why human children scream considerably more than those of any other species
  • Why Wikipedia still sucks, and probably more so than ever before
  • Zidane, the unprofessional football player
  • The weather
  • Smells that I find profoundly erotic
  • Serious thoughts on death and the afterlife
  • How my horoscope prevents me from having sex being rich
  • Boring weblogs
  • The urge to insult people
  • Writing lists
  • Making raspberry yoghurt
  • What Closure/• stands for
  • How it's time to move on

I just can't be bothered.

I'd prefer "Why Wikipedia still sucks, and probably more so than ever before" and "Zidane, the unprofessional football player".

Please be bothered! You have a moral obligation to your faithful readers. You can alienate the casual passers by but not the real fans.

By the way, do you find the smell of raspberry yoghurt erotic?

If you were to become less disinclined, it would be nice to hear about erotic smells, "serious thoughts on death and the afterlife"; oh heck, even Zidane would do! Alternatively, you could write a few words about why you "Just can't be bothered."

This is a new concept: weblog readers write the weblog by their comments. Great idea for the hot days! BTW: I L.O.V.E. lists!!!!

I just used Wikipedia to write an entry about Zidane; thanks for the inspiration.

Wikipedia really sucks, at least according to the article at Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Sucks

Could you some day see an article titled "Britannica Sucks" at Britannica Online? I don't think so.

Wikipedia does have serious shortcomings, but thats due to wrong expectations of the project. However, often I find that Wikipedia suprises in positive ways when gathering background information for an article etc. But you need to go to the sources to verify your information (the same applies to Britannica as well).
