Top 10 Viral YouTube Videos of 2012

YouTube has announced the top 10 viral videos of 2012, and then seemingly failed to advertise it on YouTube's front page.

I approve of #1, #4, #5, and #8. Especially #8. Funnily enough, those are the only four videos on the list that I've watched so far.

So i guess these videos were so popular that Google decided nothing else had a chance of catching up and they didn't need to wait until January to announce it?

(Hey LA Times, i would happily have linked to your article instead of a News Corporation site if you'd just bothered to provide links to the actual videos instead of filling the article with "topical" links back to your own site.)

Cross-posted from: G+, for once, just in case you want to go over there and +1 it ;)

Magic Radioactivity

Today my cat is radioactive and i need to stay six feet away from her. Tomorrow my cat will not be radioactive at all and i don't need to take any precautions at all. I know this is true because her doctor told me so. Most radioactive substances have a half-life. Clearly for her they used a special magic radioactive substance that has a whole-life.

I wonder if it magically expires at midnight, or at sunrise, or what? If i stay up until midnight can i then let her sleep with me again? Or do i need to wait till morning? Is she more like a gremlin or a vampire? Oh! Or maybe she's like a were-kitty! Perhaps i should be checking the moonrise/set times...
