xkcd is one of my favorite online comics. Today's comic is highly amusing, but alas, no longer valid. Amusingly, "Died in a knitting accident" seems to be the most checked, as well as the most bogged about. Slightly more amusingly, there is actually a spam-blog posting about dying in a knitting accident. ( http://ktvbcom.blogspot.com/2008/01/died-in-knitting-accident.html ). It even posted yesterday.
I hope the knitting community catches on.
