Those of you that keep detailed records of my life may remember that I got engaged over a year ago, in that same week my fiancee and I both lost our jobs. That put wedding plans on hold for a while, but today, we picked the date and venue for the reception. 4/20/123. Yeah, 4/20, I know.
Though we will probably get secretly [courthouse] hitched on 12/21/12 for legal reasons, and also to make the Mayan prophecy come true, at least for us.
Congrats! And good luck! Marriage is hard! 1st rule: be nice. 2nd rule: you're wrong and refer to 1st rule.

Since you apparently mean best comments ever... a few days ago I found one where a homework question got a reply from the students grader. Unfortunately I didn't save a link, but if anyone is bored enough to go looking, assuming it hasn't been nuked yet it's somewhere between 250 and 260 (homework, high to low, 50/page).[^]
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies. -- Sarah Hoyt
