Paging David Pogue

(Updated: Wow - that's one hell of a reaction on Twitter! You can also check out the original cartoon here.)

If the planet came with a manual, I have to think it would carry some pretty serious warnings about certain activities:

Offshore petroleum drilling: THIS IS NOT A SUPPORTED FEATURE OF PLANET EARTH. Using this feature may void your warranty and may cause issues including – but not limited to – unavailability of the Plenty-O-Shrimp feature, increased beach viscosity and unexpected dolphin termination. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU BURN ANYTHING OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THIS FEATURE. This can lead to your system running at dangerously high temperatures.

Added: Oh, curse of knowledge, you scamp. When I wrote this, it didn’t occur to me that people might not know David Pogue is the guy behind the absolutely wonderful Missing Manual series, published by O’Reilly Media.

Hey, Congrats Rob! Cheers :)
Obviously Luongo didn't read Pogue's manual on how to stop leaks in the crease.lol

Let's Go Hawks!!
Thanks, Reiko!

XJS and Me, the way Vancouver reacted to the Canucks' defeat was probably the same way we'd have reacted to an oil well blowout in English Bay.
I love seeing Pogue's profile rise. I grew up with David Pogue.
Absolutely hysterical! Thanks for this...
