… along with yesterday and the day before and before … and probably also tomorrow, a day when Pibbur is feeling low, and therefore isn't in the mood. So no update about the when and where and what.

Except for this:

1998: The Australian Cricket Board's cover-up of Shane Warne and Mark Waugh's involvement with bookmakers is revealed.

2010: Jan Eggum turns 59 years.

I don't know how popular Pibbur is with google these day. But I will be back.

Don't worry: When the world ends in 2012 you will never have the hassle with updating this thread again…



Edit: Isn't that the same year, when Sarah Palin becomes first female president of the USA, and isn't that no coincidence?

Here's the original Wikipedia quote, before I .. added a more personal touch to it. Which may have made it a bit more confusing. Which can only be a good thing:

1695 – A window tax is imposed in England, causing many householders to brick up windows to avoid the tax.
