… and this is my Web site, where I post my thoughts just for you.
Each post here is developed by me just for you over a period of several years. After my scribe is done transcribing I have my in-house team of Oxford dons review it thoroughly for accuracy, relevance, and historical consistency. Finally, I hand it off to my team of comedians to polish the jokes and ensure maximum possible humor.
Each post is then presented to a test panel where its enjoyment rating is measured and tested carefully for your personality type. If the enjoyment rating falls below 25.3 it is sent back to the team for improvement. They are denied food or drink or sunlight until it meets the exacting quality standards that I know you expect.
Finally, each post is bathed in distilled water from the Arctic and polished with cashmere silk until it shines as brightly as our perfect reference diamond. Then, and only then is the post carefully wrapped in the finest linens and transported it across the Internet for your reading pleasure.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the posts.

This is one of those peripheral ideas that’s been kicking around in my head for years but I haven’t had much impetus to talk about it lately. But Mike Elgan pointed out Jay Acunzo‘s post about whether or not to move his blog to Google+, which got me thinking about it again. I feel pretty […]
Last year I lost my dad to cancer. He somehow got lung cancer even though he never smoked, and modern medicine was able to keep him around for 6 months after he was diagnosed. In the course of watching his treatment I realized how utterly broken the current medical system is. Note that I say […]
