Gary Gygax, the co-creator of "Dungeons And Dragons", has died.

An estimated 20 million people worldwide have played D&D, with more than $1bn spent on game equipment and books.

"I thought we would sell about 50,000 copies," Gary Gygax told me back in 2004.

Also worth reading: Woot's Jokes Not To Make About This. The two best are also probably the most obscure:

7. “With his last breath, he cursed the name of Marlon Wayans.”
...
11. “Lorraine Williams is behind this somehow, I just know it.”

xkcd's tribute.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
