— I am seriously considering live-blogging the third-party presidential debate this Sunday. I can’t even imagine what those folks will say, but I bet it’ll be more interesting than another Obama-McCain slapfest.

— Slate helpfully brings us an article on the etymology of “fail” as a noun. “The highest form of fail ”” the epic fail ”” involves not just catastrophic failure but hubris as well.”

— I can’t play golf in real life — or at least I was pretty bad the one time I tried — but I enjoy the new fully-functional online golf game at the World Golf Tour. The gameplay is startingly similar to NES Championship Golf, except with beautifully rendered landscapes replacing cartoonish trees. So I guess it’s not all better.

    Hopefully there’s a good online feed available; I\’d love to participate. With luck, it’ll be almost as good at that time Nader debated his dolls.

    Looks like liveblogging will have to wait until Thursday.
