From time to time, in order to improve Google Gulp's usefulness for our users, Google Gulp will send packets of data related to your usage of this product from a wireless transmitter embedded in the base of your Google Gulp bottle to the GulpPlex™, a heavily guarded, massively parallel server farm whose location is known only to Eric Schmidt, who carries its GPS coordinates on a 64-bit-encrypted smart card locked in a stainless-steel briefcase handcuffed to his right wrist.

If it did exsist, I would want it. Google, you are too wonderful.

There are lots of friend-linking sites out there. I personally think that the facebook is the best one - I joined friendster a while ago but keep getting strange friend requests from either people I have never met or people I haven't seen or talked to since high school, and barely even then.
Facebook has a few advantages - you basically have to be in college when you join and it's only been around for a few years, so all of the people I am in contact with there are actually friends with me.
So recently I got an email about a new site called memetika - similar principle to the other sites BUT all users can create memes, which are then spread through the community or condemned to death.
Although they do use a loose definition of "meme" (I'm not sure if Blackmore would approve), being quite a fan of memetics, I joined and now have a few of the most prevalent memes ("evolution" and "douglas adams" being the two most prevalent created by me...)
It's a pretty neat idea, and the site is also still very small (it's only a week old) so you don't have to deal with tripe like "there are 7836436473649786183 people in your extended network" (what does that even mean...?)
