The weirdness of the Internet continues.

If I can't even misplace a French-English dictionary forever in this brave new world, I'm not likely to be able to escape running into exes online, now am I? Time to deal with it: The Internet has flattened time and there is no way to escape from your past anymore.

Of course, the idea that you can lose your past was always a myth. As per Faulkner, "The past is never dead. It's not even past." That should be Google's motto.

Would it make you feel better if I promise not to tell the Internet about future findings of your artifacts at McGill? :P
