hanging chads

Unexploited name of the aughts: hanging chads. I'm not sure what I'd do with it, but I was so tempted to register hangingchad.com this morning...

Too bad... Chads makes a great anatomical alias... Check out the hanging chads on that one!

I was the first person to post on any weblog about hanging chads, I think early last Thursday, when the media was still discussing the Buchanan votes. If I'm this tied into the zeitgeist, maybe domain parking is a game I should be in.

My newspaper (The San Jose Mercury) had an article called "The Different Types of Chad". Hilarous headline. With illustrations too. They don't seem to have an online version, but searching their site for chad is somewhat amusing. This one's pretty good "Florida police deliver contraband chad": http://www0.mercurycenter.com/breaking/docs/040078.htm
