The original URL doesn't work, but this one does: http://www.blameitonthevoices.com/2008/12/quitting-verizon.html

Verizon is my least favorite company ever, but I have to agree that this isn't particularly funny or clever.

I can't help thinking about it. I think faster than I type.

I have to say I'm not at all a fan of the fact that they change all my letters to lowercase. And discard my newlines. If I wanted to look like an idiot I could take care of that just fine by myself.

I also don't like that they require you to enter your e-mail address even though they don't need it, but that problem was easily solved.

What kind of effect do you imagine crack has on the IQ of a peanut?

"Lush floods disrupted uncertainties." "Liquor reins" comes right before that, but I can't make much sense of that.

"Vibrant squeezing prerequisite outdoors putt thriller" makes some rough facsimile of sense.

The word "wirthling" doesn't appear, so I guess "workmates fillet sucks" will have to do. I've never had workmates fillet so I wouldn't know. "Navel itch" appears right after that sequence.

I looked up 31337 and discovered that it was the second word in "Perfecting redeeming brothels? Pejorative foolishness!" That's followed by the disappointing non-word "nr".

According to that web site, "McDonald's opens a new restaurant every four hours."

That is so, so depressing.

I think choosing Hitler was a mistake. I used to know a girl who, while not herself a bigot (to my knowledge), really got off on the whole Nazi fetish thing.

Taking away the mustache was a mistake too. Easily Hitler's worst physical feature (at least by today's standards). The revised Hitler is actually rather handsome, I think.

If I liked guys, I'd probably do either of them.

But we love him anyway.

These people are way too uptight even by my pedantic standards.

>> They posted this on Penny Arcade!!!!! <<

Yeah, that's where I saw it.

Man, I only got 5/10.

But if you ask me, if I were out hunting for treasure, and I ran across several people who had decided there was more money to be made by setting up shops to sell me items that would help me on my quest, rather than taking those items and going on the quest themselves, I would be forced to wonder whether they knew something I didn't.

But who knows... maybe they're just really bad at math and can't solve the number puzzles. That could also explain why a gun only costs slightly more than a map.

Got it on the second try, although the first time I lost because I intentionally jumped into the crocodile pit in desperation. I like the almost complete absence of visual cues to indicate that you're losing lives. I think I lost about 5 lives in one fell swoop because I was just standing in the path calmly getting eaten by a crocodile over and over, until I finally noticed my number of lives decreasing.

Anyway, this game was a lot of fun. Kind of like a poor man's Quest for Glory.

I am also the UN. I order you all to stop fighting. No, seriously.

6/16. Am I the only one who has a problem with calling a cast of a victim from Pompeii "crap"?

That document is at once hilarious and terrifying.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think the writing style of all these stories is very similar?

Their "crack" cocaine photo is available for sending to your friends at virtualcrack.com.

Well, it was gray and had wiry limbs, so I assumed it was a robot. I guess the game wasn't exactly on par with Myst in the art department, though.

Jan 21st, 2003


It's like a modern SkiFree, except you don't get eaten by a big robot at the end.

Only 26%! So much for my dreams of having sex with Tom Cruise.

Jan 11th, 2003


I got 434, but it's not good enough for the high score list. There must be a maximum possible score, which makes me wonder why they even bother with a high score list....

So I guess "urban" means "wrong" or at least "not in common usage". Maybe I should add that.

I think this is really great.

One thing they don't point out is that in addition to DHMO's own dangers, many other hazardous subtances are soluble in DHMO, or can be otherwise diffused or transported through it.

6/10 on each level. I'm somewhat disappointed to find out that the picture of Bush with the upside-down book is fake. And that the picture of Michael Jackson is not. I saw that picture on the front page of a supermarket tabloid with a headline that said something like "Is Michael Jackson Dying?"

When you haven't beaten an opponent yet, it says "obesegrad" next to their name. If you ask me, that sounds like a town for fat people.

Hilarious.


To Get Someone to Call You:

Take a piece of parchment or fine quality writing paper and inscribe the name of the target. Write it in a circle twice, so the ends meet. As you do this, concentrate on the person's face and your desire that they call you. Then, while still concentrating, put a needle through the centre of the circle created by the name. Place the charm by the phone.

The call will come within 5 minutes or 5 days, depending on how well the spell was cast and how much will power was used.

What is this, arts and crafts?

Here's the spell I use to get someone to call me. I find it's pretty reliable.

1. Look up their number in the phone book.

2. Pick up the phone and dial the number.

3. Leave your name, number, and a brief message on their answering machine. Ask them to return your call.

4. Hang up and go do something interesting while waiting for their call.

It would stop working right after I post it. Well, I'm sure it'll come back soon enough.

Unfortunately, you need a human opponent in order to play. Fortunately, a handful of in4mador users already have accounts. I'm "triskaideka". Feel free to challenge me to a game.

It was cool to play one of the Pokemon games, which I think are interesting but wouldn't actually pay money for. Unfortunately, you can't actually save your game. I wonder how much data there is in a saved Game Boy game, and whether it would be feasible to store it all in a cookie. I'm guessing not.

This is an interesting subject, but all of the response letters I've read so far have brought up the same thing: the list is useless without other lists for comparison, specifically, a list of male characters who have had tragic fates befall them, and lists of male and female characters who are alive and well. And we'd have to be sure that those lists encompassed at least a majority of the set of comic characters in whom we're interested.

I'm certainly not ruling out the possibility of subconscious misogynistic tendencies in an industry populated primarily by males -- and sometimes not very well-adjusted ones, if you'll pardon my stereotyping. (It's okay for me to say it, since I'm a comics fan too, right?) I'm just saying that this list doesn't exactly prove anything.

As an aside, Fabian Nicezia wrote a defensive but technically sound [url=http://www.the-pantheon.net/wir/c-fabn.html]response[/url] which contains the interesting statement, "Remember, monthly comics publishing is akin to a soap opera with more punches thrown." Soaps have such a negative reputation, at least among writers, that I'm surprised to see any other writer willingly compare them to his own profession.

I saw this a few months ago. I think it's pretty clever. And they do [url=http://justice.loyola.edu/~mcoffey/qcj/pq.png]have my number[/url] -- sad to say, I actually let it run until my level was somewhere in the 20s before getting bored. Not that I was watching it the whole time, or anything.

I found the site through [url=http://www.amorosobaking.com/news/ar_article03.html]this page[/url], which says they haven't received any complaints about freshness, though I'm still skeptical. I might stick with the candy, which is well-packaged already.

I'm not going to claim that Philly is right up there with Paris in terms of cuisine or anything. But the things this site is selling are indeed tasty. And it's true, what that article says, about how you can't get an actual cheesesteak anywhere but in Philly. Which is funny, because it's such a simple concept. But if you go to a restaurant that claims to serve "Philly cheesesteaks", I'd estimate there's a 99% chance they don't know what they're talking about.

A "Po' Boy" is a Louisiana thing. I found a restaurant in Pennsylvania once that claimed to serve po' boys, and they were good, though I can't attest to the authenticity. My perception is that a po' boy is also slightly different from a generic sub. I think it's required to be hot and contain some sort of meat. But I could be mistaken.

I've seen "grinder" before, but always in conjunction with some other term, as if the restaurant were trying to cater to some myterious demographic who knows no other term [i]but[/i] grinder for such sandwiches. I've never heard anyone use the term in conversation.
