Read on to find out how you can help.

This is still in the early stages, but I've put up an example story in the hall of shame section to show you the kind of thing we will be posting.

Now is your chance to help us out at Adequacy. The name Hall of Shame, while quite descriptive, is sort of tired and pedestrian. If you can think of a better name for the section, submit it here and if you have the best submission and we decide to use it, you may win some sort of unspecified prize! This could be your lucky day!

Please note that by make a suggestion, your submission becomes the exclusive property of

I believe that there are other sites out there that would work just as well.

Some of us rarely venture onto other sites, and the occasional article of this nature might serve as a welcome reminder of the fools that exist.

isn't that why we rarely venture onto other sites? To minimize our exposure?

One morning, still groggy from all the carbon monoxide that built up in my head during sleep, I wandered down to the kitchen and picked out some pink packets that looked like instant oatmeal.

It turned out to be ham grits. I hate ham, and I hate grits, but bad things taste infinitely worse when you expect something else. Like mistaking ice tea for coke, or vice versa.

Even worse mistake is when you want an instant pineapple drink (from a large silver packet) and you end with a solution of instant mashed potatoes (from a very similar large silver packet).

A|s they are more amusing than the proper Aequacy articles. Can we also see the editorial comments as I am sure they would keep us in stitches.

A fanboy.
