My new favorite meme is "You can't explain that," courtesy of Bill O'Reilly, who tried to prove the existence of God by pointing to those mysterious tides. We don't know why there are tides, so God exists. QED.

The "is your name Ben?" post on [livejournal.com profile] linguaphiles has been deleted. Someone doesn't have a sense of humor.

Luckily, one of the moderators saved screencaps.

(The poster, by the way, had a feminine-looking username and icon.)
