"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

I Am In Geosynchronous Orbit Above You

I'm going to be on Mark Thompson's show "Make It Plain" on XM satellite radio today at 5:15 pm EST for half an hour or so. It's channel 169, The Power. I'll be talking about the Duelfer report.

You need to subscribe to XM and have an XM radio to listen. If you don't subscribe already, I recommend you travel back in time about a week and order it so the radio will get to you by today. I really don't think that's too much to ask, after all the sacrifices I've made for you.

P.S. For those who didn't spend their childhoods obsessively reading Arthur C. Clarke books, geosynchronous refers to satellites that stay in orbit over the same spot on earth. I believe XM radio uses such a satellite.

Personally, I just enjoy the sound of it. Geosynchronous. Mmmmmm.

I don't want to buy a plasma TV, but I love talking about it. Plasma.

Same with gonorrhea -- don't want it, but it's really fun to say.
