Via the Freakonomics blog, here is a list of some great Google "Easter Eggs". The ninja is pretty sweet (aren't they always?), but my two favorites are the "Did You Mean" results when searching for "recursion" and "anagram". Try it out! You know you will ....
Second, the Washington Post reported on the perfect summer activity: Camp Bacon.
The sun shone brightly as the couple sat down to breakfast under a big white tent. Their plates were piled high: with hickory-smoked bacon from Edwards of Surry, Va.; long pepper bacon from Arkansas' Ham I Am; and applewood-smoked bacon from Nueske's in Wisconsin; plus bacon scones and a slice of bacon-apple coffee cake for good measure.Mmmmm, bacon scones! The report also mentioned prosciutto and pancetta from La Quercia, a small Iowa company. Trust me, this stuff is amazing!
