Internet gleanings

For your reading and listening entertainment, a few nuggets from around the Internets:

* Godwin’s law (also known as Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin’s Law of Nazi Analogies) is a humorous observation made by Mike Godwin in 1990 which has become an Internet adage. It states: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”

* Investing and the Irrational Mind, a fascinating book by Robert Koppel. He has so many opinions, most backed up by years of experience, that it is impossible to agree with all of them. But who says you have to? Bet our friend, Dean, knows him.

* Jerry Doyle. “Doyle is best known for playing the character of Michael Garibaldi on the Emmy Award winning TV series Babylon 5.” IFO loved this series, though the last couple of seasons became more or less incomprehensible. His radio show is really funny, but politically liberal people won’t like it. He has a fascinating blog roll.

* Another television star turned talk radio host is Dennis Miller. We suspect his humor appeals more to men and find his show biz reminiscences a bit tedious, but he’s also pretty funny and doesn’t overdo the conservative bit.

* The Doug McIntyre Red Eye Radio show comes on too early for IFO to listen to, but she is partial to his name, so here’s his website. You’ll love the introductory music.

That’s about it for today.
