It's not Fark it's News:

Normally I add a short note about what's going on in the world that's more important than the missing white chick of the week or shark attacks. However on Friday I had knee surgery and they gave me some great pain pills so I unfortunately have no idea what's going on in the world. The surgery went well but took an unexpected turn. The actual scheduled operation was to trim up some cartilage but I told the doc that while he was in there he might as well clean up anything else he could reach. So he shaved some cartilage, smoothed out two bone spurs, one cyst from an old injury dating back to high school probably, a ton of scar tissue, and a couple other things that I can't read because they're in doctorese. Amazingly I feel better after surgery than I did before it.

I'm glad it's not just me.

The headlines so far this year have been of a fine quality.
