My Worlds Collide

Why this hasn't happened before is beyond me. My obsessions with Yelping and blogging haven't ever been combined into one MEGA obsession, but it has come, my friends. It has come. I am now Yelping about my blog and blogging about Yelp. My world is now complete.

1. Co-best website ever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yelp!)- Anyone who has spent time with me lately knows of my increasingly-unhealthy obsession with this site. I refuse to patronize a business unless I know how my fellow Yelpers have rated it and have drank enough Kool-Aid to believe that my single opinion matters. I mean, I get notes from business owners all the time, so maybe it does, but whatever. I. LOVE. YELP. I said it. Sorry Adam. Love you too, but you can't compile the opinions of many into one, 5-star scale on which I can judge a business. You guys know I can't make my own decisions, so I joined a community of opinionated bastards... and I love it. Okay, so what does my one favorite site have to say about my other favorite site? Let's see... It is a Web 2.0 company (yah, knew that) that operates a social networking (love it), user review (awesome), and local search (sweet) web site of the same name. Okay, I don't know about you, but I'm sold. Where do I sign up?!? Oh wait. Nevermind... Okay, focus! Back to Wiki... Whoa. No. way. Over 25 million people access Yelp each month?!?! Dass cwazy! So this is cool, it's name is a contraction of Yellow Pages. But it's way cooler, so I guess one could say that Yellow Pages 2.0 whooped Yellow Pages 1.0's ass. It's based out of San Fran, but there are 18 communities (the coolest of which is the Chi, ya know, the Windy City) where it's heavily trafficked. I think that's how you spell it. If not, I'll get comments, so I'll find out. Before I forget, STAY AWAY FROM THE MESSAGE BOARDS. Oh man, there are som Judgey McJudgersons on there... and they jump to conclusions. Not a fun deal... Stick to the reviews, fo sho. Okay, so onto fun stuff... let's see where this hyperlink sends us...

2. Google Maps (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Maps)- Also a very cool creation of web 2.0. Yes, I'm fully aware that Northwestern has created yet another obsession; I'm an obsessed person, what can I say?!? I love web 2.0 and the possibilities that it creates. I'm so excited to finally be dedicating a blog to my friend. New Webby, call him, we shall. Okay, so Google Maps was once called Google Local. Not nearly as cool, but obviously they learned that. It can be seen at http://maps.google.com/ in case you didn't already know. So I think that the coolest part of this whole Google Maps revolution lies in the creation of the Google Apps. Like Google Earth, Googel Mars, Google Moon, Google Ride. Anyway you slice it, those are cool. It's incredible how some geeks can sit around and figure out what people want and then they're able to completely change the American vernacular. Nobody "online searches" the web anymore. Everybody Googles. Even un-web savvy people know what you mean. That's increible to me. Okay, but this is all related stuff. I gotta have some random variables in my life. Lemme find a good hyperlink on here...

3. U.S. Virgin Islands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Virgin_Islands)- Never been there but wouldn't mind going. They are an "insular area" of the U.S. Whatever that means. I'll wiki that later, but I gotta find out the deal behind these lil spots. The total area is only 133.73 sq miles. That's little. They're only slightly larger than Malta and I lived there. Trust me, it's small. They were originally settled by the Ciboney, Carib, and Arawaks and were given their modern name by Christopher Columbus. Columbus "discovered" them, but yet they're 74% Afro-Caribbean. Yeah, apparently he didn't do his job of commanding and conquering (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_and_conquer). Yes, I did reference a SUPER nerdy game that I still play to this day... Ah the days of endless summer CNCing. Anywho, I'm pretty sure that Columbus was a douche, let's see if wiki agrees...

4. Christopher Columbus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Columbus)- We all know that he was born in Italy, switched sides for money, and eventually dies Spanish. If there was ever any question about his ethics, I think that single fact sums it up. Oh man, I desperately want Photoshop right now. So. very. expensive. Want. Photoshop. anyway. Dang. Okay, I fully intend to rectify my inability to photoshop a Yelp t-shirt onto Christopher Columbus. That would be sweet. Anywho, Christopher Columbus heading this way is the direct result of the fall of the Mongol Empire to the Ottoman Turks. Silly Turks. Apparently he was quite the adventurous little trader... he went to Iceland, Ireland, and, obviously, North America and all over Africa. In 1479 he married Filipa Moniz Perestrello who was the daughter of the Porto Santo governor (obviously a political play) and they seperated in 1485. Yeah, see, marriages failed just as much back then, it was jsut handled differently. Ya know, the wife disappeared, or the marriage "never existed"... fun things like that. Hey, well, I've rambled on enough, and I hope that I've planted the seeds for you to keep on-a-readin about Columbus. Bastard.

(Editors Note: I pretty much dislike all pre-Industrial Age Spaniards... Nothin personal with Mr. C. Colombo. Not as much as Canadians though, of course. Although the introduction of Eurpoean illnesses to the new land is always fun and much appreciated, the uncanny ability to take over a land, rape it of it's resources, convert it to catholicism, and then leave it with little to no sustainable governmental structure does not lead to fun times. See http://projects.latimes.com/mexico-drug-war/#/its-a-war Modern Spaniards are aight, they just like to eat, drink wine, and take siestas but the olden-days ones were a bunch of ruthless meanies and that, my friends, is never kosher in my book.)

Until next time, don't forget "In the Congress of Cool, I'm the Whip."

Hammer Pants and a Bottle of Whine

So does the name Stanley Kirk Burrell mean anything to anyone? No? Oh, you guys are SO lame. It's MC Hammer, the founder of the Hammer Pants Revolution. Somewhere, far above the coolness of the Orange Revolution and the Rose Revolution, and slightly below the American Revolution lies the Hammer Pants Revolution. But before we go any further, let me share with you my inspiration: http://www.todaysbigthing.com/2009/06/10 That being said, let's wiki our beloved antagonist.

1. MC Hammer- Wow, I was going to paraphrase, but this has parts that just have to be copied and pasted into this bitch, cuz it's pretty damn impressive... "Stanley Kirk Burrell (born March 30, 1962), known better by his stage names MC Hammer and Hammer, is an African-American multi-platinum selling MC and dancer most popular during the late 1980s until the mid 1990s, known for his dramatic "rise and fall" from fame and fortune and his trademark Hammer Pants. He became a preacher during the late 1990s and as of 2008 works as a co-initiator of a dance website, television show host and CEO, still performing occasionally at concerts and other functions in addition to his own reality show.

Although considered a "forefather" of entertainment rap music (or "pop rap") at one time, due to his mainstream appeal since the late 1980s, he would later be considered a "sell-out" rapper by many. Nonetheless, BET ranked Hammer as the #7 Best Dancer Of All Time." Not bad for a guy who wrote a song about a time that doesn't really exist. The question that I ponder is: what would have happened to that song if he would have written it about, oh, I don't know, 2:30 time? I can't begin to imagine that STOP! 2:30 time! would have had the same effect. Okay so after singing the praises of said Hammer Pants, I have to wikiwander there...

2. Hammer Pants- Apparently Hammer Pants are officially called Harem Pants in fashionista circles throughout the globe. BO-RING... Back to my main man, Stan. Gotta find something with some sort of cool hyperlinkage... Okay, so locales are always good for linking... So we've got this one...

3. Tracy, California- (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracy,_California) OH... It's a suburb of Stockton. Wow. that's. not. exciting. at. all. Aight, so it's also KINDA a suburb for the San Fran Bay area. Wait a minute... Tracy, California. Northern Cali? Wine? Yeah, there's gotta be something about wine in here. Lemme look. Wow. Nothing about wine. I could really go for a bottle of wine right now. Maybe a nice pinot or zin... Cab even. Hmmm... sad. But I digress. I whinegress, if I may. I don't even know if that works, but I'm leaving it. It's my blog, I can do what I want. Come to find out, this is a totally hoppin' place. They've had problems with water contamination because of DDT in the area (which is awesome) and choloroform from the Georgia Pacific operations in the area. Wow, this place must have incredibly low rates of birth defects! Not only that, but it also lies on top of 3 faults and next to a 4th, so it's 'quakey, too! Double. Bonus. OH, it has a sister city! ...and it's in Japan... Clickin on that one...

Memuro, Japan- (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memuro,_Hokkaido) Looks bo-ring, but I'm winging it. It's itty bitty, but it's on an islandy0looking place called Hokkaido... That's gotta be cool...

5. Hokkaido, Japan- (http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hokkaido) Okay, so this place is GORGEOUS. It means North Sea Circuis and it's an island in the nothern part of Japan. It's Japan's second largest island behind the main one and it looks absolutely breathtaking. It's the home of the sity of Saporro, which I've heard is also a great Japanese beer. This place was settled 20,000 years ago?!?! Shut up! It had to be COLD back then. Youch. Wait a tick, I can go home how. I'm going home. If you guys want to learn abotu Japan, I recommend wikiing it. But I recommend wikiing everything, so you should've seen that one coming.

Until next time, remember that I'm too legit to quit... Off to Target I go.

PS... I fully intend to get photoshop soon so I can make the pictures on this blog worth a damn. It. will. happen.

Monty Python and My Personal Battle with our Stepchild to the North Known as Canada

Man, I knew I could count on a crazy Zimbabwean to come up with a starting point for my blog.  My buddy Allen read fatal hilarity (still my new fav phrase) and immediately a light went off about a lil sketch that our buddies over at Monty Python did in their Flying Circus.  I'm mixing it up a little this time, I'm going to actively try to find a way to get to Canada at some point; just so I can talk a little trash.  Yes, it does make me feel better about myself to talk trash aboot Canucks, okay?

1. Funniest joke in the world (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funniest_joke_in_the_world)- This article is about a Fying Circus sketch that's also known as "Joke Warfare" and "Killer Joke."  Pretty much means that the joke's really friggin funny.  So funny, in fact, that it can lead to fatal hilarity.  Honestly, this sketch is so brilliant that you just have to read the wiki.  I'll continue with a hyperlink because the wiki itself is so funny that commentary really isn't necessary.  So click on it, read it, snicker, and return to me, my children...  Oh oh.  I think wiki's broken.  It's not loading.  my life may be over.  Hey, false alarm...  Here we go again...

2. Tickling (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tickling)- This is actually super interesting.  There are 2 types of tickle sensory; the goosebumpy kind (called knismesis), which all animals have, and the gargalesis, the belly laugh kind, which are believed to be limited to humans and primates.  The latter is believed to be an evolutionary trait because of where the responsive areas lie (ie, the ribs, etc).  Hey, wait a minute...  I see the word violence...  Canada, violence, absolutely!  Let's hit that link!

3. Violence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violence)- Violence is the expression of physical force against self (youch) or other, compelling action against one's will on pain of being hurt.  Really wordy and not fun, so I'll sum up the good stuff in here and move along...  Oh hey, it says it should be noted that violence can be non-physical as well, so I'm noting it.  Duly noted.  So globally violence is used as a tool for manipulation, so that's kinda cool.  They say that few things are universal.  Well, violence is.  As is tickling.  I prefer violence by tickling, but that's just me.  Anywho...  Carrying on...  Scientists disagree as to whether violence is inherent in humans.  I'm going with the positive angle on this one.  I prefer to live in my happy world of rainbows and kittens where there is no violence.  Oh wait a minute...  Health and prevention, murder statistics...  Hmmm... No way it's hard to find Canada in here...  

4. Canada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada) Oh look, there it is!  500 murders in Canada according to recent estimates.  Oh, what are they doing up there??  Raping and pillaging?  I understand that there isn't a whole lot to do up there, but get it together, will ya?  And stop pronouncing things like "aboot" and "eh." But I disgress...  It's the second largest country by land in the world and has a whopping 33.6 mil people.  That's like half the number of sheep there or some sort of similar livestock.  Pfft.    That's less than the populations of LA and NYC combined.  Weak sauce.  
Let's take a look at their biggest cities:  
  • Toronto- home of the Blue Jays (in the US MLB), the Maple Leafs (apparently they can't spell in Toronto... the Raptors (in the NBA, the "N" standing for the nation of the U.S.), I'll give them the Maple Leafs (they can have the NHL as Yogesh pointed out, but apparently they can't spell in Toronto) there HAVE to be some other teams...  Oh yeah, the Argonauts, no joke, are in the Canadian Football League...  Hmmm...  No comment.
  • Montreal- keeps trying to succeed and become it's own nation and I can't say that I blame it
  • Vancouver- going to host the Olympics in 2010, which is pretty bad ass, not gonna lie.  Too bad they're the winter Olympics, but you can't really expect Canada to host the summer Olympics...  I mean, they're for warm weather and they're bad ass...  So it no dice for the Canucks.  SPEAKING OF WHICH, they thought it was a good idea to name their hockey team... the Canucks...  Really?  That's almost as ridiculous as naming a team from the U.S. the Yankees...  What kind of idiot would do that?!?  Oh yeah, and up there is their logo.  What does that have to do with a Canadian other than it has a "C" in it?  The lack of brilliance is astounding.  Yeah, my job here is complete.

Whoo, it's time for a phone tap!

This blog has absolutely NOTHING to do with a phone tap (http://www.q101.com/airstaff/shermantingle_phonetap.aspx), but I felt that I sould give a shout out to my girl Clarissa Jenkins just because I love her.

Okay, now onto the matter at hand. I SHOULD be studying, but instead I'm writing this hoping to entertain but a precious few. May I tell you, small audience out there, you are slackin. Not like the kind of slackin that will get you through undergrad as long as you're okay with losing a little bit of sleep here and there, but the kind of slacking that got Shawna a D- in comp sci 110. We're talking MAJOR slackage goin on in my friend department. How am I supposed to Wikiwander from the topics you comment if you're not commenting?? HUH? Well, I have one friend who not only comments but sends me damn good subjects. Thank you Yogesh. Your diligence will not go unrewarded. That being said, check out this one that my Wiki-loving pal sent, Category: Jokes. That's all it says, but the treasures it holds...

1. Category: Jokes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Jokes)- This is a list of types of jokes with links to a definition and examples of each. So cool...

2. Administratium- WTF is this? A joke I've never heard?? Not possible! Oh jesus, I understand why. Why would anyone EVER need to know "a well known joke in scientific circles, and is a spoof both on the bureaucracy of scientific establishments and on descriptions of newly discovered chemical elements"? Ugh... Okay, back to the list I go... Oh, this is too easy... There have to be SO many good ones under this one...

3. Blonde jokes(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blonde_joke#Blonde_jokes)- Yes, this is totally where I was looking to go with this... "The archetypical "dumb blonde," while viewed as attractive and popular, has been criticised as lacking in both common street-sense and academic intelligence, often to a comedic level." Wow, were they looking to describe Jessica Simpson? Lacking sense to a comedic level? Yeah, that's her. For sure. One can even see the stupidity in her expression. Anywho... Reading further... Whoa, something really interesting!

4. Sex and intelligence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_and_intelligence)- This MUST be read... Wow. "Sex and intelligence research investigates differences in the distributions of cognitive skills between men and women." Ah, so the age-old battle wages on! So apparently it's really hard to accurately study this subject because IQ tests have a built in bias due to woman's incredible knack at the verbal stuff and men's, well... men's lack of verbal ass-kickingness. That's basically what it boils down to. I mean, I read the article and all I got from it is that women pretty much kick ass. And I love that. Time to move on before I read something that contradicts with my belief...

5. Charles Darwin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Darwin)- Everybody knows who this dude is! He's the favorite celebrity of Christians around the globe! Total side note, but I was watching a show on the Discovery channel today about the Galapagos Islands, and the rumor on the street is that he developed the "Theory" of Evolution (not so sure it's really a "theory" anymore... It has pretty much been proven consistently since it's conception, but whatever...) Another side note, everybody should watch Religulous. I think it's my new favorite movie. Gonna buy the blu-ray now... Not on blu-ray... Reevaluating purchase decision. Back to blogging... I didn't know that the ship that he took all over the world was called the beagle. Wow... I think I'm going to end on a dog note. Not the longest blog, but certainly not the least inspired. Off to homework I go. Procrastination is a beautiful thing...

Until next time remember: What Would Mel Do?

The Deuce

Oh and to think that my buddy Yogesh and I used to be arch rivals and now he's providing me with an incredible starting point for my sophomore blog...

1.  List of unusual deaths (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unusual_deaths) - Really?!?!  Could there be a more interesting and entertaining place to begin this journey?  It is a list of unique, or extremely rare circumstances – recorded throughout history. The list also includes less rare, but still unusual, deaths of prominent people.  That is entertaining without reading any further into it, but I did...  Oh I did... Okay so I'll just let you in on the ones that I found to be the MOST notable or just generally strange. 
  • This thing starts out with a bang.  I bet that you had no idea that Empedolces (the pre-Socratic philosopher, wow...  never thought I'd ever need that one from Freshman year...) jumped into Mt. Etna?!  Friggin Mt. Etna!!  Yeah, it should come as no surprise that we never studied his stuff in school because CLEARLY he wasn't that bright.  Apparently it was to convince people that he had been taken by the Gods on Olympus...  Really??  Was there no better way??  People were SO ungullible at this time, I'm sure it must have taken such actions to prove a point....  Hmmm...  Wait a minute...  Okay, off soapbox and onto next cool death...
  • Chrysippus died of laughter.  No shit?  That's awesome.  Wow, maybe I shouldn't say things like "this cracks me up" or "he kills me."  IT COULD HAPPEN.  Dude was watching a drunk donkey eat figs and straight up keeled over from laughing.  It seriously cannot get any better than this...  I have to find my next wanderword before this article goes downhill...  and...  there it is... "died of laughter"
2. Death from laughter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal_hilarity) - THIS CANNOT BE REAL...  It's listed as Fatal hilarity.  Wow.  I have a new favorite term.  Onto the article now.  It says that cases of death by laughter date back to ancient Greece and that "death may result from several pathologies that deviate from benign laughter."  Is there such thing as malignant humor?  That takes 100% of the fun out of humor. Carly, I win, you lose.  You could potentially be malignant to my health.  Peep this: March 24, 1975 a guy named Alex Mitchell died from watching the Kung Fu Kapers episode of the Goonies.  The Goonies are funny and all, but death?  Really?  Wow...  You.  Have.  Got.  To.  Be.  Kidding.  Me.  This article talks about Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  Oh this is definitely my new wanderword...  (or wanderPHRASE as it were)

3.  Who Framed Roger Rabbit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Who_Framed_Roger_Rabbit) - A fabulous movie from my childhood, a Nintendo game with which I spent many hours (oh, side note, I still have a functioning NES circa 1987), as well as a wiki.  Let us read on friends... The film was released in 1988 and was a fantasy comedy that combined traditional animation and live action with elements of film noir.  (Anything that has any elements of film noir must be cool because it's French, right?)  In case you don't remember this fab flick, it goes down like this:  Roger is a bad ass rabbit that's all the talk of Toontown, which is a section of Hollywood where the toons coexist with people.  He married a hussy named Jessica (most recently played by Jessica Biel) who cheats on him by playing pattycake with the owner of the studio.  Well, when the owner gets capped, Roger's in the hot seat.  Judge Doom is out for Roger's head and his weasel henchmen are all about roughing up our boy Roger...  Yadda yadda yadda...  Roger wins.  The End.  Well, apparently Mike Eisner didn't want it released because it was a cartoon and there were innuendos...  Wow, how times have changed.  Shrek, anyone?  Whoa.  I guess the last time I saw this I was really young, but I had no idea the messages in this movie.  Apparently the corruption is supposed to be symbolic of the 40s in L.A.  Ugh.  Yucky.  And the dip is symbolic or Hitler's "Final Solution."  Wow.  That's deep for a cartoon.  I'd expect nothing less of Spielberg.  That man's mind is always a-runnin'.  Smart fella that one is.  

And I'm ending this post on a cool random fact for today:  Who Framed Roger Rabbit is the first and only time that Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse appeared on screen together.  
There.  Don't say I never gave you anything.

Keep sendin those comments.  What ever shall I wiki without comments? 

Until next time, stay classy, San Diego.  I'm Kelsey Chappell?  

Dammit, who typed the question mark on the teleprompter?

My Maiden Voyage

Oh the joy that is Wiki.  I remember my first visit like it was yesterday...  I was so innocently looking up information for school and it popped up.  It was like it was fate.  My destiny was sent to me in the form of an online, user edited encyclopedia.  Have you ever heard of a more glorious thing?  I think not, my friends, I think not.  It was like an angel surfed the entire web to find little old me.  Talk about feeling special!  

If you're looking for something really funny, you need my friend Carly at http://wikrolled.blogspot.com.  If you want random nuggets of info in between rambling thoughts, you found it!  Although I am quite the experienced Wikiwanderer at this point, I have recently discovered that others take a small amount of joy in my aimless hours of meandering through the articles found on this site.  It has actually turned into quite the unhealthy obsession, but I bask in all of it's glory, so like the crack addict to the rock, to it I return.  I take the topics, put them in a nutshell (look at me, I'm in a nutshell!) and dispense these nuggets of info to you...

Today, my journey began (as they usually do) with a news topic...  Apparently Obama wants to bring the glories of the high speed rail to our fine land, so I begin with the maglev train.  Pretty much the second best thing since sliced bread, behind me, of course.

Maglev- It's the world's fastest train that is based on the principles of Magnetic Levitation.  So very sweet.  We all have been on the low speed ones at the airports (not so cool) but the high speed ones are where it's at, fo sho.  Okay, so the 1st patents for maglev trains were granted in 1937 to Hermann Kemper...  1937 and we still don't have a high-speed one in the US?!?!  That's incredible!  Okay...  Next interesting thing...  The 1st commercial maglev with longstar propulsion (that's the cool thing that makes it all fast-like) was in Hamburg...  Hmmm...  Don't know a ton about Hamburg...  Never been there...  Better click on that one...

Hamburg- Second largest city in Germany and the real name is Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg??  Really???  Get out!  Wow, learn somethin new everyday.  Okay, so that's cool.  It has about 1.8mil people and kinda looks like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/18/Binnenalster_Panorama.jpg  Well, actually it looks exactly like that.  Curious, no?  It got it's name from a castle that Charlemagne had built there.  Oh Charlemagne...  What a guy...  It has a patron saint called Hammonia that emerged during the early 19th century.  It was only 30 miles from the inner German border and was hurting until the reunification in 1990 but since Eastern and Baltic states have started entering into the EU, it's in a sweet position.  Hey....  Wait a minute...  I ALWAYS like to read about the Baltic states...  Wiki it!

Baltic States- The beautiful Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are fondly referred to as the Baltic States or the Baltic Nations.  (Total aside...  I'm in LOVE with Lithuania and am dying to go there ASAP.  I gotta figure out a way to get that done...  Adding to the list now.  Yes, I've started an official list...)  They're in northern Europe and they are all in the EU.  Wait, I see Lithuania, better click on it...

Lithuania-  It's the southernmost and, obviously, the coolest of the Baltic states.  It's capital is Vilnius and the whole nation is only 3.35mil people.  It has been an independent nation since 1990 and it has been Polish, Russian, Prussian, and Soviet, yadda yadda yadda...  Now fun stuff.  Wait a minute...  Um...  Still not super interesting...  Wow, for such a cool place it sure does have a shitty Wiki.  Wait, they have the highest suicide rate in the world??  That's messed up.  Hmmm...  Gonna search for a wanderword...  FOUND IT!  Before I go, look at these images, so cool, definitely gotta get there... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kretinga_rural_tourism.jpg,

┼Żydr┼źnas Ilgauskas- Born in Kaunas, Lithuania and plays for the Cavaliers.  He's 7'3" which makes him the 2nd tallest player in the NBA behind Yao Ming.  While at the University of Kentucky, he was the leading scorer and rebounder throughout his career.  He was drafted by the Cavs in 1996 but broke a bone in his foot, so he didn't play until 1997.  Wait a minute, I can click on University of Kentucky...

University of Kentucky- It was founded in 1865 in Lexington...  Wait a minute.  I don't give a damn about the University of Kentucky.  I'm done with this wikiwander.  No bueno this time.  Try again next time.

Tell me where you want me to start next time and I'll Wikiwander from there, and until next time, on a scale of 1 to awesome, I'm super great.
