  1. Five More Rivalries We Need Paul the Psychic Octopus to Settle

    Paul the psychic octopus, everyone's favorite animal oracle who's guessed the outcomes of Germany's 2010 World Cup matches with 100% accuracy, has made his selection for the winner: While his owner has cautioned that Paul's expertise is in German matches, Paul has come to the conclusion that Spain will ultimately beat the Netherlands.

    With a perfect record so far, there might just be something to this tentacled teller of fortunes. And that's why we've decided to ask Paul five more pressing questions that need an official answer. Which choices will Paul ooze his way into? Only Paul knows. And with some of the world's most important debates presented before him, Paul will have to summon the full power of the cosmos. Or however the flip he does it.

  2. Digg 404 Error Page To Be Brought to You by … Burger King?

    We've heard of funny 404 error page Easter Eggs before, but ... sponsored 404 pages? Strange. Apparently, that is the direction that Digg is headed, with an ad for Burger King set to appear on the error page that users hit when they type in a query with no results, BrandFreak reports. The ads, which were briefly up last week, are slated to reappear within the week. (The above picture is not an actual ad, but rather an artist's rend.)

    We're conflicted:

  4. ASCII Ad for Dante’s Inferno Hidden in Digg’s Source Code

    Here's an Easter egg for the ages: the folks at Digg have put an ASCII promotion for Dante's Inferno in their source code.

    Lest you think that Jay Adelson & co. simply take hellbeast-shaped programming notes, the bottom of the ASCII block directs you to the Dante's Inferno promotional site http://www.hellisnigh.com, with the password "excommunicate." Alas, you need five more passwords to access the site's innermost circle.
