Out of the Blue

As a follow-up to yesterday's Link of the Day, the 404 Research Lab, braeden sends a note pointing out that this site, dedicated to creative 404 (page not found) error messages, does not even have a custom 404 page of their own, as can be seen in this broken link. I know given the nature of their site means the pressure was on to live up to this, but this still seems like a cop-out. What is this world coming to?

Link of the Day: The Palm Graveyard Thanks Adam.
Story of the Day: How to Thank Kenya for 9-11 Cows. Thanks [MP] Wolverine [MP].
Weird Science: Dark Matter: Science Doesn't Know What, Where Or How. Thanks Sergio Pena.
Wild Science: Milky Way Caught Ripping Up Star Cluster. Thanks again Sergio Pena.
Image of the Day: Star Wars Fans Strike Back. EEEK! Thanks Chris Johnson.
Auction of the Day: Japan Domain name Japanese First Emperor. $10,000,000.00. Yowza! Thanks Eric Blade.

Where's Blue's custom 404?

Might this be an idea for a contest? ;-)

They said it's too hard to get the cows to the US, and that's why they're going for "trinkets".

Too bad they can't get them here. I'm betting there's more than a few New Yorkers who've never even seen a cow.

They would be great to put into the Central Park Zoo, perhaps.

I don't know whether there was one when you posted OotB, but there certainly is a custom 404 there now...

It was rather amusing too:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I websurfed, weak and weary,
...Over many a strange and spurious website of 'hot chicks galore',
...While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning,
...And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour.
..."'Tis not possible," I muttered, "give me back my cheap hardcore!" -

Quoth the server, "404".

I think that it would be great to bring the cows to the US and let New Yorkers appreciate them as a reminder of the global support we've (the US) has received in the wake of 9/11. Not sure of the amount of money involved to support them, but the gesture from them made smile in a very good way. Seems a shame to trade them for trinkets. As for cow puppies I hear they are great after they are house-trained.

I'm usually not into all this sentimental crap, but I found that gesture of the Masai people to be amazingly touching...

Same here.

Not to mention the bidder's name is Waffen SS.

It's all pure BS.

Hmm. This has always puzzled me about eBay. Whenever people are selling something completely useless or outrageously overpriced, there is always at least 1 'buyer'. Is this just the seller trying to get the bidding going? Is there no way that eBay block/punish people that bid on thier own stuff?

Just curious.

Wouldn't anyone who wants to use the domain name of the first Japanese emperor want the .jp domain name instead?

Ok, I'm sure the highest bidder here (US $10,000,000.00) is really going to pay for this, right? ...right.. Anyhow, what's just as amusing is that the current high bidder has just one comment on his feedback in his profile. And this comment came from a previous bid he had one... one in which he paid $500 for a "JOLLY NIGGER". Yikes.
