R-E-S-P-E-C-T

I don't know if you've noticed, but this blog now reeks of legitimacy and authority.  (Can you smell what The Tensor is cooking?)  At 1:30:07 AM PDT on July 31st 2006, I received my first visitor to this site via a link in the English Wikipedia.  The link, which is in the entry for Toy Story 2, points to this post that explains why it's funny when one of the characters in the movie says "Don't touch my moustache!" at the end of a phone call to Japan.  The link was apparently added on June 11th (thanks, Che fox), but I guess nobody clicked on it until today.

I'm grateful for the link, though I'm far from the most knowledgeable Japanese expert on the 'net.  But what the hell—Wikipedia may be a house built on sand, but now I'm a part of that sand.  Woo-hoo!

[Update:  Hmm.  It occurred to me to try searching for more Wikipedia links here, but that turns out to be hard to do.  Wikipedia's internal search doesn't search URLs in links.  Google won't let you specify link: and site: on the same search, which is annoying.  However (eureka!) Windows Live Search will.  Unfortunately, it seems not to have indexed the links on Wikipedia recently.  Still: advantage, Microsoft, on this one.]

Well, someone clearly didn't read the last line of that post.

Shh! Let's all agree not to spread it around and just chuckle quietly to ourselves and grin mysteriously whenever we see that scene.

In the left navigation column, choose 'Special pages', then 'Search web links'. You have a second link, from an archive of the Sanskrit discussion page.
