  • If you would have told me that I'd watch an hour-long review of "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace," I'd tell you that you're high. The movie was enough of a waste of time—why in the world would I spend seventy minutes watching a review? Because, as it turns out, it's hilarious. There's hardly a line of dialog in this entire movie that makes any sense.
  • I just ran across this four-year-old takedown of the Noka chocolate company done by a Dallas food blogger. It's long—ten parts—but just devastating. The company is buying moderately good chocolate, melting it down, stamping their name on it, selling it at a staggering markup, and then claiming to have made it themselves.
