I have lifted the headline of this original post at BoingBoing, since I really didn’t think I could improve on it. If you have ever been hounded by a PR staffer about a revolutionary breakthrough that will only be revealed to you if you agree to an embargo, this one’s for you. Some colorful language, but perfectly safe for work if you’re wearing headphones or ear buds.
