asdf asdf

[ #7747 ]
While I was investigating the new home of the isotopes, I jumped into a a news story that had a some unusual headlines. In particular, the title of the web page is "asdfsadfasd sadf", and the headline is the same, with a subhead of "asd fasdf asd fdsa f".

I suspect that these were placeholder characters left over while someone was setting up the page. However, I don't think it should have ever made it to "print".

So then, on a whim, I start searching, and find that google has 9920 hits for "asdfasdf". Simply amazing. Or sad. Or something.

One of them is a stealth asdfasdf. Note nothing unusual about the page, but check out the titlebar on your window. Sweet.

And check out the Dave Letterman Top-Ten!
