I Meme Ein
Alright, velfadar has called my bluff. Now I have to Obey The Meme:

Three posts of mine that I like: (this is difficult)
bonus: foo!

Five posts by others that I like: (so much easier, and so much to choose from)

All of the above journals are absolutely excellent reads. So are many which did not fit in this list. Stupid meme.

Now! You! Yes, I'm talking to you, you loafer! Get out there and meme along!

Had to say it:

That it's made from cows' milk, which is the proper food of young calves, NOT adult humans.
Also, it's horribly unhealthy (in more ways than one).

Tastes great, though. Highly addictive.

Out of curiosity

Where does the term "meme" originate?
Which is really an elegant way of axing: "What exactly is a "meme"?
Noa, intrigued.

Re: Out of curiosity

I believe it was coined by Richard Dawkins, in his book The Selfish Gene -- after n-1 chapters of talking about evolution and genetics, little biological agents dumbly fighting their way past entropy, he spends the last chapter pondering how informational units might do the same. This was the weakest chapter of the book in my opinion, but it's had a lot of influence. Anyway, it either originates or popularizes the term.
