Correct me if I'm wrong, but the URL "justanotherblog" being unavailable is ironic, right?

I typed "taken" before replacing it with "unavailable," and now I'm imagining how one URL might go about asking another on a date. If they get married, does one adapt the URL of the other? Do their children hyphenate or is there some way of determining which URL is the father? They say opposites attract, but will vegans and bacon-enthusiasts appreciate finding their homepages inexplicably linked? It will be the first virtual war, where the people will fight to keep their bookmarks separate, but the URLs will keep directing them away from the message board where they hope to plan their strategy. The internet will never be the same.

I believe there was a reason I started this blog, but I think "to discuss the marriage of URLs" is a much better one.
