Back in high school, I once talked to this girl, who I met at a concert, for a week. Every other word she said would be "dude." Kind of annoying, in general, but now that I think about how I had been evaluating her as a potential intimate, this revelation about the word "dude" puts things into a new light.
i can see right through you
She annoyed me for many other reasons, also, though. . .the whole dude thing was just the silliest of them all.

For those who don't read my Livejournal, but are into linguistics, check out "Adventure in English" on the History Channel. It runs weekday mornings, and chronicles the evolution of the language.

Your first link reminds me of this article from the premiere issue of the Annals of Improbably Research (AIR): "The Taxonomy of Barney: Evidence of Convergence in Hominid Evolution"

Took ICND1 exam today and passed. My hoenst advice is, just going through P4S, TI etc etc is not good enough to pass. You really need to know the A-Z of the subject. Cisco is clever enough to trick you with their questions. For all those who are going to take your exam soon, you must be prepared well enough, to gauge yourself, try out p4s and TI questions and if you can breeze through answering them then i suggest going back to Wendel Odom ICND1 study guide and try out the Do You Know Already questions. If you think the questions are tricky and you are still unsure about the answers to a few questions then i 'd say you are not ready for the exams. P4S and TI will not help you even answer 30% of the exam.That was my case.
