    Sorry if this has already been asked, but why can your posts be accessed from the "Nav-next" button and the RSS feed hours before they go live to the frontpage? Is it just some weird WordPress cache thing or is it intentional?

      Beats me. Your cache?

      As of the past few months, I have to manually reload the webpage for blog post and recent comments to update.

      The Expires: header on the front page is set to four hours in the future (that's 12 Max Headroom Units). So that's maybe why.

    This page is a gold mine for band names. I expect to see "Dumpster mummy" and "Does not link to hitler" playing here soon.

    I am tempted to turn ech one of these into a question on Quora.

    So disappointed to know that "Category: People shot by standing Vice Presidents" has been removed since all I recall is the Aaron Burr / Hamilton duel. What other VPs popped a cap in the course of their official duties? Do veeps still back heat? Could be a profitable action movie franchise.
