Where do you want to go today?

Straight to hell, apparently.

The other day I saw another Microsoft commercial on TV: sublime choral music
drifts through the background as the unseen user surfs through the Internet
and various Microsoft content using Internet Explorer. The commercial closes
with the Microsoft slogan "Where do you want to go today?" and a final,
furious blast of music. It's a very cool effect.  But if you dig a little

As it turns out, the background music is the Dies Irae of Mozart's Requiem
Mass. And the words of the final blast of music which accompanies "Where do
you want to go today?" are actually "confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus
addictis..." In English: "When the damned are confounded, and consigned to
sharp flames..."; which describes exactly where I want to go today.

Unfortunately, while Explorer will take you to hell for free, the upgrade
to purgatory is pretty steep.
