FOLFOX Round 10: Absolutely nothing to report.

Just the usual fatigue, numbness, lack of taste, and loss of appetite.

And now for something completely different.

Have you noticed that "Next Blog" link on the top of the page.  According to Blogspot,

The new and improved Next Blog link will now take you to a blog with similar content, in a language that you understand.

OK.  So I start on this blog and click Next Blog.  Of twenty attempts, here's what I get:

GREEN MAGAZINE: green lifestyle news.  If you want to "Go Green," turn off your freakin' computer.
Wednesday whining. To confuse you, none of the recent posts were done on a Wednesday.
Le Carnet d'Eledraël I don't know what the hell this is.
Mattye Lee's Raw Progression A "raw vegan" finds spiritual enlightenment in her journey through uncooked herbivorism.
Blogger: Blog not found and Blogger: Permission denied. Apparently there is a Bermuda Triangle for blogs.. 
Kathy - mom of many: A Christian mom of 10 children.  She makes sure to point out that she is neither Catholic nor Mormon.  I wonder if Kathy's last name is Koresh.
Radical. Rational. Juiceing [sic] and Feasting. Experiment.  Another health nut who "regularly detoxes."  If you call her, don't expect her to answer. She's in the bathroom.
Blog 324.  This is like Blog365 with 41 vacation days.
I also hit two family blogs , a few "what's on my mind at the moment" blogs (most of these folks should stick to twitter), two cancer blogs, and some weight-loss blogs.

Notice anything wrong here? Correct.  The "similar content" claim is, to quote Click (or is it Clack?) boh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-gus Only two cancer blogs, no soccer blogs, and no traffic reports.  As far as "a language you understand, I don't understand anything about Eldrael's car net. What's that about? Does the paint flake of into his food?

So either Blogspot is lying about this feature or I'm really a whining, tree-hugging Christian vegan with a très français vacation schedule.
