Caption Contest Rules

Ok, thanks for everyone’s input on the caption contests. I’ve given it some thought, and here’s the deal.

Caption contests will now last seven days. After a caption has been posted for seven days, I’ll turn off the ability to add new captions and I’ll declare a winner and a loser based on the votes. (Since I can’t disable the voting feature on certain caption contests without disabling it across the entire site, you’ll still technically be able to vote for completed caption contests, even though a winner has already been declared and your votes will mean nothing. Nothing!)

As an example, I just closed an older caption contest and declared a winner and a loser. Check it out to see what I mean.

Winners will receive a link to their website (if they provided it when submitting their caption) and losers will receive nothing (although I don’t want to rule out the possibility of putting a piece of shit on them.)

A River of Tears for Heath Ledger

While leaving work today I was slightly miffed to discover that the 6 train was out of commission due to a water main break. But thanks to my trusty G9 (which I’d forgotten I was carrying), I was able to venture back above ground and photograph some of the commotion.

After growing tired of watching the fat, overpaid city employees staring slack-jawed at water pumping equipment as if they were professional mouth breathers, I realized that I was only a block away from where they found Heath Ledger’s corpse. So I went over to 421 Broome St and took some snapshots there as well. The photos aren’t the best in the world, but they’re photos I wouldn’t have if not for my Canon G9. Canon should use me for one of their commercials.

Keep reading for the photos.

UPDATE: More info about my thoughts on the Canon G9 can be found here.
