I'm loving this right now...

We feel fine...

"Since August 2005, We Feel Fine has been harvesting human feelings from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes, the system searches the world's newly posted blog entries for occurrences of the phrases "I feel" and "I am feeling". When it finds such a phrase, it records the full sentence, up to the period, and identifies the "feeling" expressed in that sentence (e.g. sad, happy, depressed, etc.). Because blogs are structured in largely standard ways, the age, gender, and geographical location of the author can often be extracted and saved along with the sentence, as can the local weather conditions at the time the sentence was written."

*Update*
After playing around with some of the parameters look what came up... A familiar face.

Ha, that looks like fun. Although kind of sad to see Yani still feels like shit!

How funny... He's the only male Australian blogger who felt like shit in 2008. Must be an Adelaide thing. :P

Oh holy crap!!!!!

I was reading the first half of this and was thinking to myself "hey, I should specifically mention feeling SOMETHING in today's post, see what happens"... then I scrolled down...

HELLO FACE!

That's pretty damn freaky I have to say!

I also went and looked at the post that was from... that really was a bad day and I really did feel like shit...

I'm guessing that any qualifier will stop the program picking it up, so there are probably a whole bunch of mine that it didn't recognise... (I'm ignoring you Tom, you're just crabby about the Bridget Jones crack ;P)
