So if you have nothing today and really want to feel dumb, you might want to turn to ESPN HD. The Scripps National Spelling Bee is high-def this year and ESPN is running it till 3:00 today. These kids are simply amazing and spelling words that most people will never know how to say let alone spell. Like "Cachinnate" which means to laugh loudly or to convulsively. Or better yet..."Tatterdemalion," with origins part Scandinavian and part unknown, means ragged or disreputable in dress and the 11 year old 6th grader got it right.

Amasing. Simply amasing.
