2. LOL, I know exactly what you mean.

Though on the positive side, I think the term has been overused so much that it carries a bit less weight with the public in general. Maybe that's just me though.

3. cnbc actually has a to-the-second countdown clock.

it's a countdown clock for the new year, and if it had been labelled as such it would be just a nice thing, if somewhat comical when it's still weeks away.

but no, it's billed as a fiscal cliff countdown clock, as if at midnight, alarms will sound and tax collectors will rise en masse from the fiery pits of hell to stalk the rich.

4. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides...

...by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.”
