I Need Minions...

One thing I could do if I had serious minions is set them to work reading the comment threads at Teresa Nielsen Hayden's Making Light to alert me of absolute gems like this:

Making Light: Which sf writer?: David Goldfarb ::: (view all by) ::: May 15, 2005, 09:16 PM: [Re] "there are lots of locations where, if you search on (e.g.) 'Ming's Purple Death Dust,' you'll get offers to provide all your Ming's Purple Death Dust needs on eBay. At exceptional discounts. Order tickets to Frigia on Travelocity now."

My favorite example was when I was poking around on the San Francisco Chronicle's web site and found an article about the activity of the Hayward Fault. At the bottom of the page:

Fault Line New and used Fault Line available at low prices on eBay.

Um, I'll pass, thanks.
