Look at today's featured picture on Wikipedia.

I think that's a real picture, but I can't stop laughing.

One of the better ones I've seen so far.. sadly in Swedish but still great. One of Swedens biggest price comparison sites just announced that they were going to list torrent sites among regular stores. :D

Here's the main announcement (in Swedish): http://www.prisjakt.nu/nyhet.php?n=199

And here's an example search for Dragon Age 2 that lists the pirate bay as cheapest: http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?p=664532

no, that's real and completely describes slackware accurately... the post just has a bug with the date.
