The Chicago Tribune Has Made the Best Internet Mistake of the Day

"It looks as though they've fixed it, but for a glorious 16 minutes this was the Chicago Tribune homepage. It is self-evidently wonderful, but let's still talk about just how wonderful it is.

Cat image. Test, test, test, test, test, test, test. Headline test. The cat is a kitten. The kitten is grey. Test, test, test. Updated. It's like the internet swallowed a Gertrude Stein poem and pooped this out 16 minutes later.

Let's make all of the homepages this, just for a day. It'd make things better."

Physics Slam on Ice

Watch six physicists battle for the audience's applause, hoping to emerge the champion of science entertainment. Contestants will have 10 minutes to explain their research to the audience; the winner will be determined by an applause meter.

The audience will also get into the game, with giveaways including science-themed t-shirts and an iPad.

"The Physics of Superheroes" author and University of Minnesota Professor Jim Kakalios will moderate the slam. Local voice, speech and dialect consultant D'Arcy Smith and speech consultant Shirley Venard will provide training for the scientist contestants.

The event is sponsored by the American Physical Society's Division of Particles and Fields, and is held in conjunction with a particle physics conference that will bring 600 scientists from across the country to Minneapolis.

"He had a life-long love affair with deviled eggs, Lane cakes, boiled peanuts, Vienna [Vi-e-na] sausages on saltines, his homemade canned fig preserves, pork chops, turnip greens, and buttermilk served in martini glasses garnished with cornbread. "

One rockin' obituary if there ever was one.
