    Going to hide this factoid in that part of my mind I keep knowledge of the existence of dinosaur bones and goatse while quietly fist pumping and chanting "USA USA USA" in my cubical.

    Haha whoops. I'm on a roll. Yesterday I wore my Buzz Rickson/Self Edge sweater to work yesterday and I got a lot of "What's sexbr. Sexbar?" The font looks well like prison font so the product manager I work with asked if it was something that sex offenders are now mandated to wear.
