"The Story of Stuff"

"The Story of Stuff" is a 20-minute history lesson and an economics course all in one, but it won't put you to sleep like your professors did. It's a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns and was produced by Free Range Studios, the same folks who did "Store Wars" and "The Meatrix."

Small world

I'm wearing my Cicero's Pizza T-shirt today at work and I had three people in the space of about two hours say they knew Cicero's. Pretty funny, considering A) I've worn this shirt at work many times and that's never happened even once, and B) Cicero's is like 50 miles from here.

Turns out they all grew up down in the same are where I did and all knew this Cupertino institution.

But it gets weirder... It turns out that one of the coworkers who knew Cicero's is married to a guy I went to grade school with! Totally small world. Or at least a small Bay Area.

This is why it could sometimes be verrrry frustrating working at a certain other place I used to work at, with a few certain other people I used to work with. It's also why I really like working at CNET. You almost never hear these sorts of things from your co-workers here.

So what really is in a McDonald's Chicken McNugget?

Funny test answers
