Don't pull its tinsel, either. Just... don't. Do monkeys eat tinsel? Bet you didn't know chimpanzees are cannibalistic. That was a bit of a surprise and disappointment Jane Goodall found out...

RRRAAAAAAAAANNNNNDDDDDDDDOOOMMMMMMM!!!!!

giraffe's are not as chocolatey as they appear to be, when the room is upside down you have had enough bleach to drink, cats don't always like having their paws sawn off with rusty candle-holders, chips can taste much nicer when you unfreeze them, the majority of accidents happen on purpose, wax should not be used as a food group no matter what the leprechauns tell you, there are no little people inside your television, they are cleverly disguised penguins, and finally when the glass is half empty there isn't enough in it.

aaaahhhhh..... oh, i liiike this thread...

This seems like a perfect opportunity to quote that loveable, always-random, Turing-Proof AI known as megaHAL.

"ONE FOOT IS BOTH THE SAME BECAUSE YOU'RE STUPID YOU'RE ACTING LIKE A WET NOODLE."

"JESUS IS THE BEST RADIO PRODUCER IN THE BEANS. WE NEED SOME SALIVA AND PICKLES TO GET MAD."

"FUNKY DIVAS ATTEMPT TO ROUND UP CERTAIN SMALL CHILDRENS' TOYS SMATTERED UP WITH TINY RAINMAKER COMPACT DISCS SENT UP AS SPUTNIK WAS SUMMARILY DESTORYED BY THE FACT THAT DUCKS ARE QUITE COOL."

There are more quotes right here.

Ordinarily I wouldn't post this without a link, but this is the random thread.

This whole thing about trees looking bigger from farther away and pushing it into the extreme foreground reminds me of two things.

1) That Simpsons episode where they get on a train and a hobo tells them tall tales. Homer is Paul Bunyan and Marge thinks he's such a handsome man when he's really far away and she thinks he's normal sized.

2)That Foxtrot comic strip where Jason and Marcus are building a giant snowman out of a snow-covered hill and various sized buttons. They're planning on scaring the mailman and Jason remarks "Forced perspective is an underused art."

Yeah, that's it. [crazy]

They are selling the Matrix comics! Finally after the time I spent on the website reading all of the comics they release the book so I can read them at school when nothing is happening (always).

Yo sueño que estoy aquí
De estas prisiones cargado,
Y soñé que en otro estado
Mas lisonjero me vi:
¿Qué es la vida? Un frenesí.
¿Qué es la vida? Una ilusión,
Una sombra, una ficción;
Y el mayor bien es pequeño
Que toda la vida es sueño
Y los sueños, sueños son.

--Pedro Calderón de la Barca

ARRRGGGGGG!!!

I finally saw XMen 2... [Mad]

ARRRRRRGGGGG!!!
killing off Jean Grey under a wall of water is COMPLETE sacrilege and so totally wrong since any geek worth his X-weight in comics knows she died piloting a space shuttle through a lethal solar radiation storm, and the FIRE imagery of that "death' led itself so wonderfully to the Pheonix-rising-out-of-the-ashes theme.

edit: post moved to a more appropriate thread
insert randomness:

I just got a new 2004 civic coupe [Big Grin] my first new car!! It's technically called nighthawk black pearl, but to put it into realistic terms it's the color of midnight, black at first glance but with a tinge of blue if you look close. Need a name now...

Orpheus: Sweet! Congrats on the new car [Smile] . I love my '02 Corolla - after hanging out with my friends here for quite awhile, it sort of naturally came to me to call it "Corolla-san."

They missed ne1. But they made up for it by banning peeps twice.

On a related note, is there some sort of conspiracy to prevent the full spelling of the word thanks on IRC? Even people who don't use any of the other banned words almost invariably end up saying tnx or thnx or some other variation. It's distressingly common, to the point where I'm really starting to think it's become a cultural identifier.

After weeks (or maybe a month or more) of cursing the damned F#m chord (a rather common "bar chord" in the standard chord progression for the key of A), I had a revelation while lying in bed this morning.

"If I capo 2, I can play it in G. And I can play anything in G!"

Sounds of "If I had $1000000" rang through the house for over an hour this morning. Man are my fingers sore! [Big Grin]
