This whole fiasco is a...
Pretty well screwed from every angle except one... there was apparently no marital relations actually happening.
... and world+dog just shake their head
then laugh at both parties for the humor (Oatmeal) and the lack there of (FunnyJunk).
You still have analog TVs?
oh... right. Those are the ones used with the old game systems that need a curved tube for the light gun (and that slow 24/30Hz refresh rate).
The Atari 7800 is on the big flat panel in the main room.

Re: Sod this for a lark
problem with that is you will eventually be surrounded... then what?
As a computer user...
I'll continue to use a thumb drive and external hard drives.
What's this? Sharing files with people around the world?
FTP or upload to my own web server. meh. Old school... just gets it done.
oh... it's only formula one
and not one care was given
Think of the children!
shoulda just left the shorts on... then the cops wouldn't be so inclined to grasp at my title here.
all this and no mention of...
The Rocky Horror Picture Show?
ok... I guess bad taste does not a bad movie make.
Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004)
Disaster Movie (2008)
just because they look horrid by the cover and the editing is probably about as bad.
and of course... anything on IMDB's bottom 100 is fair game
But can it fold?
mine's the one with the nVidia shopping list in the pocket.
I think it was just a "technical point"
Since the suspicion was drunk and not DUI. since the courts are kept to such a high technical standard, this is a valid defense to the charge presented. I'm not sure if the charges could be re-submitted under DUI after admission of guilt, but that would be for the DA.
TRENDnet has problem with kit
slow news day? None of their stuff works right, or can be broken by the slightest sneeze. When you're using bottom rung kit, don't expect it to be really capable.
I gave up on TRENDnet when I went through 3 KVMs inside one week. I went from a hard switch that I've had since before TRENDnet was even around to a soft switch. Worked like a champ. Then bought a softswitch with TRENDnet's name on it to get extra systems connected up. well, the old Tandy 1000 PS/2 keyboard port was just too much for the TRENDnet switch as the switch went into insane rapid fire mode after that. 2 more switches later and I think I had it figured out. TRENDnet uses absolutely no margin for error in any kit connected to theirs. I have a theory that the old PS/2 port on the Tandy puts out a little more voltage than spec. I've never had any issues with any keyboards connected to it, so it's not enough to right home about, but TRENDnet's kit couldn't handle it. I have not tested this theory since everything else has worked like a champ since I binned the TRENDnet kit. I chalk it up to a company that has set themselves up as low price with lower cost (read: cheap) parts and are not worth my time and frustration. TRENDnet is an industry example of FAIL. They might do well to know about that electrical component called a resistor.
Adblock Plus for Google Goggles?
Billboards? I don't see any billboards... just open sky! I now enjoy my scenic drive to work. no buildings, no billboards, just blue sky and roadway (granted, the ton of cars are still an annoyance, but we're still working on that issue).
Meh... this is why I build my own kit
granted... the non-portable kit for the most part. Though when I do buy pre-built portable kit, I make sure it's been out for a while already, price has stabilized, I find a sale (hopefully), and it conforms to my current needs and potential future wants (which include the ability to do my bidding after the warranty is up... whether that's just me being able to fix it endlessly or install a different OS or really getting down and dirty and modifying the hardware to accept additional kit). Typically, it's not that hard to find something that fits my criteria. I have yet to buy an OEM system other than a laptop. I've always built my own desktops/towers/servers/etc. This always gives me the best options for price points and typically ends up being about the same price as an OEM system with much better upgradability since I don't have to deal with using OEM kit should something take a dump.
Don't forget about the small guys
xkcd is also blacked out. http://www.xkcd.com/
The FCV-R looks like a pissed off fish
wide mouth (grill) and gills (air dam vents below the headlights) with almost closed eyes typical of most angry squints.
It amuses me how some designers think styling cues from low slung sports cars will actually translate well to a bubble car. If that front fascia was half as tall, it might look decent. Right now, it just looks to me like a large mouth bass from some fishing show.
The steak was great! I opted for the soup.
Wife tried vegitaian once...
she about passed out on the 4th day due to anemia. She requires red meat. she can't even do the poultry or pork foods. And since my body is allergic to lettuce/cabbage/etc, I can't eat salads at all (well... pasta salad is fine *grin*). So all of these "oh so nutritious" foods that vegans like to rant and rave about for the most part include some form of some plant that my intestines like to explode over.
Beef... it's what's for dinner.
tl:dr - everyone has a different requirement for nutrition... some people require the amino acids from animal based foods, some people do not. but when you try to force your views on someone else... you get the big F-OFF. PETA can F-OFF... I'm going to the Saskatoon Steak House.
Don't know about that place? Check out the billboard...
wise? really? MobileFUD more like.
proud to be a merkin
wow... having to pay a yearly fee just to watch broadcast TV. I knew the Brits had to pay to use damn near everything... but TV? That's harsh. I'd rather have the crap ton of commercials we have than have to pony up more money just to watch the morning news. The advantage with having commercials is you get a choice... you can mute... you can watch... you can actually buy into the advert if you want... but there's a choice there. Sounds like the UK has no choice to begin with other than TV or no TV.
Cause it's a Jaaaaaaag
wow... an automaker that fixes something as soon as they discover it instead of making the consumer find it.
I almost feel refreshed.
now if Jags didn't cost so much (some of the lower models don't... but the desirable ones do)
/coat Mine's the one with the service manual on CD in the inside pocket for my old beater
no removable battery
if the hardware locks up... you can't reboot it without a reset button (serious lock where even holding the power button won't turn it off). I've managed that a couple times with my own android phone. Trying out apps and running games... sometimes the thing hard locks. I have to take the battery out to reboot the silly thing. Without this option, power users, some devs, root types, will probably pass it up since waiting for the battery to totally drain out will be majorly annoying. Plus... what if the consumer is like me and likes to keep kit for 3-4 years. the battery will probably crater in 2 if not sooner... and even then, a two year contract means you're stuck for 2 years unless you pay extra for "upgrades" and getting a replacement battery for phones with removable batteries is easy and pretty cheap. Takes 5 seconds to swap out with fat fingers that all work like thumbs and gives the phone new life.
I'll stick with the one I've got.

duh! Who cares about the sheeple who are spending the money they don't have... buy a car for cash that's exempt from emissions due to being so old that you only have safety inspections at most. All the money you're saving on car payments and extra levels of insurance can be well spent on performance modifications and fuel. why drive angry with a new car when you can drive happy with an old reliable one.
I have 3 cars... the newest is from 93. the 93 has over 200K miles on it and is getting a new engine cause the last one died a horrible death (bent valves). I've still yet to crack $10K spent on this car... though I'm getting close with the new engine. Compare that with the cost of any new car over 5 years and yeah... having a full size car that seats 5 in comfort (6 if you squeeze another up front and put up the armrests) that gets over 20mpg when all the "new and improved" sedans that can seat 6 and haul their luggage only get 2-4mph more...
yeah... I'm keeping my older cars.
Ford is complete idiots to kill off the Crown Victoria... they should have dropped the new 5.0L engine in it and started selling a performance sedan. /rant

Star Control and Star Flight
to the stars! (and then that little turn based game called STARS! - it's almost as bad as angry birds is now for addicting.)
SC1/SC2 SF1/SF2 are truly epic games. Tandy 1000 for my SF enjoyment... but PCs for the SC play. I still find myself pulling out the virtual machines (DosBox FTW) and playing the old favorites. For some quick time wasting, I tend towards SC1, Pinball Illusions, Epic Pinball (the Enigma table is truly an epic use of programming), and a hacked version of Doom2 with rapid fire everything and 100K ammo for it all (double barrel shotgun if your friend... cyberdemon kill in 1.5 seconds)
retro games FTW... back when content was king (OK, maybe not Doom for content)
mine's the one with the 5.25" floppy organizer
are a work in progress and not Jesus. They can be utterly stupid and insanely hypocritical. Oh wait... so can everyone else on the planet.
As usual... people need to get over themselves. I laughed good when I saw that advert just now. I would also consider myself a good Christian. If I had the opportunity to purchase a product/service from this company I would probably shy away due to reviews that are readily available on the net and not because of some goofball advert that made a small group of loudmouths pissy. If you try not to offend anyone, you'll never succeed because there's always someone out there who's too pissy to be happy about anything and would rather scream and yell about rights and offenses and their self centered pissy life than take a piss and enjoy the day.
I do believe that these "high and mighty" Christians need a good taste of 3rd world countries so they can be grateful for what they have instead of bitching about random stuff that they take offense to just for the sake of farting their own horn.
Bah... and I say Bah again.
Welcome to the USA's hypocrisy...
We'll let all manor of violence and innuendo influence our children, but show some gender specific skin and you're the spawn of satan. skin has been an art form as long as humans have existed. Violence is just that... violence. I live in the country and am constantly amazed at the stupidity of those in authority. I say celebrate the human form and frown on the violence. That's the way it should be. so what if someone wants to put a cod sack on their truck... you don't see privacy fences around the stud corral just because the bull/horse/etc has a full set and flaunts it.
If you're offended by the fact that someone has some balls... well... sounds like a personal problem to me. Piss off!
*I would never put a set on my vehicles though... I prefer to be understated instead of overstated.
yeah... I have an account... unfunded... used only to purchase things here and there from ebay sources usually. If anything goes wrong, I call my card issuer and have them charged back. If I'm permanently dropped from Paypal... it's no sweat off my ass, but there's no way in hell they're getting access to my checking account.
