You know what happened when Seattle residents suddenly start walking upright and using tools.

Let me guess? They invented Windows?
Oh the horror! :)
Actually, I was mad at Windows yesterday. One of my kids unplugged the DSL modem power supply, and Windows wouldn't boot except in safe mode. I didn't know the modem was powered off, so I was going nuts trying get it figured out. Damn, that was aggravating. Finally I got it fixed and then...
I got the phonecall from CNET. It was a stupid day.

I haven't made it out to the park to see it yet, but a friend of mine who did said that the monolith's remarkably beautiful -- no visible seams and situated so that two opposing sides face sunrise and sunset directly. She was there at sundown on Tuesday and said the light reflecting off its western face was really cool. I guess the city's hoping the creator will come and retrieve it before they're forced to remove it due to safety reasons (it's not anchored).
Apparently a number of monoliths showed up across the country on the morning of the 1st. No doubt ironic commentary on the whole of human evolution resulting in a Dubya presidency.
