Markdown looks like an easy-ish language to start (probably not so easy to master of course). Although compared to writing LaTeX source, it is a breeze. During my last year at JHU I started writing the reports and what not directly into LaTeX, I think using MarkDown for blogging and MS Office at work is going to take away my old skills.
On a side note, I am now up to around 500 million cookies per second (CpS) in Cookie Clicker. I was stuck at 200 million CpS for a week or so until I could start making Antimatter Condensers. I may have missed them before as they were not visible in the side-bar and I had to scroll down to see them.
