One for the kids
I play a Numberjacks board game with my kids sometimes and they have these pieces called Buddy Blocks.
Some of them are blue.
Blue Buddy Blocks.
I take far too much juvenile pleasure hearing my 4 year old say "Blue Bluddy Blocks!"
Why don't they take inspiration from the Just Cause games and hook themselves up to an asteroid and let it pull them to Jupiter?
Yes I know he's dead
A small heavy metal star vomiting out rock?
Can't help but feel that NASA have missed an opportunity to call it "DIO-1"
I'm 45 years old and still partake. Does that count?
He hired a hitman?!?! Surely it would've been better to use iocaine powder?
I apologise in advance
In the words of Bad Company that's "Good Leuven Gone Bad"
You can pretty much guarantee some guy has already found the dog and is just getting his money's worth before giving it back.
If the females are having more sex than the men....
....then surely it means the females are having sex with each other? Woohoo!
Paris because, well, I'm sure she went to university. *cough*
You know what.....
....is REALLY depressing?
Listening to the music now that you listened to when you were a teenager.
a) It's pisses over the tosh that passes as music today and most of the musicians are dead (or as good as dead)
b) It reminds me that I'm an overweight, 40-something, father-of-three and not a teenager.
Still, new Journey album soon!
Willy-waving contest. US loses
Do the US not understand the Domain Name System or something? I mean, FFS, RojaDirecta is already up and running again with 3 different domain names! Whilst Homeland Security were showing everyone the size of their balls and slapping pretty notices on homepages, the websites themselves were pissing all over them from a great height with their truncheon-like trouser sausages.
Pfft. Every week, Alan Sugar toys with loads of cocks on The Apprenctice and no-one bats an eyelid!
re: Carried on with his round
Actually, the probably wouldn't have taken it at all because either
a) It was in the wrong coloured bin
b) It hadn't been cleaned before throwing it away (this still beggars belief!)
Belgium should be the guinea pig
I would heartily welcome computer-controlled cars here. Hell, hook up ZX81 up to each vehicle and it would probably do a better job than the majority of clowns that get behind a wheel in this country.
But I've already got a soft and flexible machine for emptying the dishwasher.
Girlfriend 2.0 etc
Paris because she's flexible. Apparently.
Is this all it does?
I bet the testees (*snigger*) suffered from some pretty strong side-effects that have been hushed up.
Completely mis-interpreting an innnocent remark and having a hissy fit for the rest of the day
Constantly asking whether the lab coat made them look fat
Mysterisouly all needing the toilet at the same time
Paris because she also likes putting stuff up her nose. Allegedly.
re: How soon... #
I was recently told about a Call Center that would look for candidates' Facebook/Twitter/MySpace accounts and would discount said candidate if they didn't have one!! They believed that it showed the candidate was not "sociable" and, therefore, would not fit into their team.
If I was ever asked, in an interview, why I didn't have an account on a single social-networking site I would ruin my chances of getting the job because of the inevitable bile-filled rant.
Can someone explain...
...why it costs more for provider to transmit 1MB of data than it does 1GB? It's data. It's doesn't weigh anything. It doesn't require any sort of "heavy lifting". It's just electro-magnetism (or light, if you are lucky enough to have fibreoptic).
Excuse my ignorance, I'm merely a poor SysAdmin but I've never understood this argument.
That explains call centres then
I'm not at all suprised about the high percentage in India. The aliens probably all work in call-centres. Proof-positive then, I think you'll find, that aliens are certainly NOT more technologically advanced than us.
Fights breaking out
"How long before a fight breaks out because the pub runs out of 3D specs?"
That won't be what causes a fight. No, it'll be caused by some half-cut pillock "dodging" out of the way of one of Emile Heskey's "shots" causing them to stumble into a group of Millwall fans and spilling their pints.
"Seagoing British boffins are about to plunge deeply into hot Caribbean bottom vents using a long, cigar-shaped, battery powered device."
41 years old and double-entendres still make me giggle like a schoolgirl.
Paris because, well, need I elaborate?
I thought it was common knowledge...
..that beers makes you clevererer? It kills brain cells but it kills the weaker brain cells first (much like a lion hunting antelope).
Ergo, the more beer you drink, the stronger the brain cell "herd" becomes.
Huh. In my experience it would be more like
1.Walk into bank.
2. Try and find a pen still attached to its chain
3. Try and find a working pen still attached to its chain
4. Fill in withdrawal form without the pen nib tearing the form in two
5. Join interminably long queue
6. Realise you are behind the man from the penny arcade who's cashing in his yearly takings
7. Give up and risk being hacked. It's less hassle.
The Pirate Party will surely be all over this?
If they just run on a single-issue of "Vote for us and we'll drop the case against TPB!!" they'll grab the entire youth vote and, possibly, win the election.
I don't think Westwood Studios will care
"One quarter of C&C channels vanish"
They'll just release another re-hashed version of the same tired, formulaic crap they've been living off for the past decade and the fanbois will create more channels.
Wait. We are talking about the same thing here right?
Who would want to listen to....
...hour after hour of footballers talking? I mute the sound when they're interviewed on Match of the Day for heaven's sake and that's only for a few brief seconds.
Beer is brain food
I agree that beer makes you more productive. However, it also makes you more intelligent by killing the weaker brain cells. We all know that alcohol kills brain cells but much like a lion tracking a herd of wildebeest across the plains it will go for the stragglers, the weak, the ones who can't keep up with the rest. By killing these weaker brain cells first it makes the "herd" stronger, making me more intelligent.
This is plainly evident when I've had several beers in quick succession and become an expert on everything and am compelled to tell everyone so. Loudly.
