Fun Links o’ the Day, and ups and downs

Ganked from ladytabitha:

Search 4 billion digits of Pi looking for your phone number. The odds of finding any arbitrary seven-digit sequence buried somewhere in Pi are almost 100%. Wasn’t there a science-fiction story about God hiding a secret message somewhere inside of Pi?

Ganked from mobiusmuse:

Given its record of abject miserable failure, how can the Republican Party possibly persuade people to vote Republican? This hilarious movie, taken directly from the speeches of top Republican leaders themselves, spells it out pretty nicely.

Plusses and minuses:

+ Going to FantasyFest in Key West over Halloween!

+ Necronomicon starts next weekend!

– Shelly has a cold… šŸ™

+ Tampa Fetish Party the weekend after Necro

– Shelly will not be going to San Francisco with me in January; school starts the same week as MacWorld.

+ I’ve got a quote for Alcor life insurance, and should have the insurance in four to five weeks, which means I’m well on-track to have my Alcor bracelet by year’s end. Yay!

+ Alcor will be offering whole-body vitrification soon!

+ We’ve drafted datan0de and merovingian to help develop the characters and art for the post-apocalyptic Flash cartoon that will (soon? eventually?) be hosted at Doomsday Sex.
