Good-bye Free Time!

There are a couple of reasons for the title of this post.  The first is simple: this is the week classes start back up at Duck U.  The first-year fledgelings moved into the dorms on Saturday, everybody else comes in on Tuesday, and the first day of classes is Wednesday.  Eep.

The OTHER, primary, reason is because of an e-mail I got from my Uncle JoeDuck.  Contained in this innocent-looking missive was a link to this site.  Oh god, the time I've already lost there... just at random, I clicked on "W"... and eventually found this:

Click the pic for full advertising goodness.
Go to the site and marvel at the wonderment that you will find... it isn't all advertising.  In fact, most of it isn't old ads, but just... stuff.  It's as time-sucking as tvtropes (link withheld to prevent then entire internet from disappearing into this post).

Posting may be sparse this week... or may not be; we'll see.

Reading this, I thought, "Isn't it time for the next F1 race?" So I took a look. There was a five week break? Ye Gods!

(I'm wondering if it's because of the last-minute canceling of Bahrain.)

2 Bahrain occurred this year; it was back on April 22nd.  F1 always takes a "summer vacation", but it's particularly long this year.  Still, Spa-Francopants on Sept 2nd.

3 You're right. How did I forget that? (Senior moment...)
