Fortune magazine had an article of the 100 best things about America and the Kindle came in 15th....ahead of duct tape, the Bill of Rights and Carlos Santana.  Not too shabby, Kindle.

I would do the insert article here thing if I knew how to do it.

Here's the link!

Although that list reminds me a little of the theme to "Team: America" (the movie by the creators of South Park that was filmed entirely with puppets.)

There's a chorus where the singer wildly shouts out things he likes about America (and the background singers shout out "hell yeah" - or the equivalent.) It goes something like this...

"Rock and roll!"
"Hell yeah!"
"The internet!"
"Hell yeah!"
"Disneyland!"
"Hell yeah!"
"Books!"

Duct tape is overrated, IMO.

In fact, a recent study compared the various tapes and rated them according to how well they taped ducts, and duct tape actually came out at the bottom of the list. I think it's time we officially changed the name to "duck tape" since I imagine it does a pretty good job of taping ducks.

Oh...did I commit thread drift again? Sorry. Here:

"I think it's nice that Forbes magazine would bother to survey and list 100 great things about America, and I'm delighted that the Kindle is on the list."

Ignore all that stuff about duct tape. Duck tape. Whatever.

Fun list, but I'm devastated to hear that Duct Tape really isn't any good.  :'(

It just isn't much good for taping ducts. 1001 other uses! Though personally I prefer gaffer's tape because it holds well and peels off with less residue.

That's definitely cool.  I'm surprised, to be honest.
