Sponge-headed Scienceman reminded me of the Wayback machine on I have seen this used in arguments to show that someone has changed something on their site and not mentioned it. Wow. Now that I think of it, I could make all sorts or predictions that came true, so long as it didn't happen to be on the Wayback list. Did you know that I predicted the Red Sox collapse this year - in late August, just before it happened. Yeah, I saw that coming, but never did get around to betting thousands of dollars and making a fortune on that. As a narcissist, I of course entered my own site and looked at what the Wayback Machine had captured for July 3, 2007. Pretty interesting. As I mentioned recently in another context, I think I wrote better stuff then. You can't always get to the links, and never to the comments this way, but if you are interested, you could go back through the sidebar.

Don't you think sometimes things we wrote a year or two ago seem smarter because they now seem surprising and fresh? Just enough time has passed for us to forget them a bit.

Because I'm sure it's not that we're getting decrepit or lazy in our writing. Me, age?
