Okay, okay, so they never tell you this in Christmas time, but Santa and his old lady totally had conjoined twins as kids.

Now, Santa and the missus, they’re cool people right, they want to do right by their kids, but they totally weren’t prepared for this.  So they do what a lot of folks do, right, and they talk to the doctor about what the right thing is to do for their kids.  Should they be separated?  CAN they?

And the doctor says no, they share a digestive tract, there’s no way the kids could be safely separated.  Much better that they live as they are, since they seem pretty okay, just different.  They’ll be all right, because after all: a semicolon can be used between two closely related independent Clauses.

Hey [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke , I TOTALLY want Trin's voice saying 'DICKWHISTLING COCKMONGERS' to be the sound our computer makes when it boots up now.

I dunno what the best shutdown noise would be.  Maybe you saying "vagina" a whole bunch of times.

Okay, so I went to good ol’ Windows Media Player to play some Queen music, and it automatically shows the album covers.  Most of them are correct.

And then I got… this.

This is a picture of an album cover in bright rainbow covers of robots.  It is NOT a Queen album cover.

…the fuck?

This is the album cover zoomed in on.  It is STILL not a Queen album cover.

Zoomed in again.  DEFINITELY not a Queen album cover.

…that is not a Queen album cover.  That is an MSpaint drawing our younger brother did of him dancing with a robot with his hed pastede on yay to C3PO’s body.

I don’t know what bothers me more: that this is apparently what my computer thinks is the album cover for ‘Under Pressure’ or that I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME FIND THE REAL IMAGE.  I want an MSpaint picture of my brother dancing with a robot, goddammit!

Obviously I need to resign now.  Our brother is obviously the TRUE artist in the family.

If you enjoy silly stories and marching bands, I highly recommend Sweet Tunes, by Wolfrug on Deviantart.  When an alien blobmonster attacks, only music will save humanity!  Unfortunately, the more music the monster hears, the pickier it gets, requiring... EMERGENCY MARCHING BANDS!

we had a GLORIOUS experience at prom.  Which is funny, since at the time, I didn't want to go.  However, my system devised an ingenious way of getting my enthusiastic participation: I'd get to go in boy drag.

I just got to write about how for the sake of gender equality, I would indeed draw sexy lumberjacks.  You know, FOR THE MOVEMENT!

I love being me.

Today, naturalists observed this fascinating ritual between two homo sapiens, on encountering each other within their territory:

Rogan: AAAAAAAARGH!
Darwin: AAAAAAAARGH!
Rogan: *flails arms* RAAAAAAAAAR!
Darwin: *flails arms* YIIIIIIIII!
Rogan: HRRRRRRRRRNNNN!
Darwin: GLABERABBERYABBER!
Rogan: Okay, thank you, I feel better now.
Darwin: I'm glad.

Truly, the human being is a communicative species, reaching the apex of linguistic expression.

...here's Doug Walker (AKA Nostalgia Critic) along with some guys called Team Four Star reading 50 Shades of Grey aloud, while doing impressions (including Mickey Mouse, Droopy Dog, Batman, and Christopher Walken).

You're welcome.

Attention friend's list!

Do you want to hear a country song about the perils of straight love, and how life was so much simpler when you were sober and queer?  Course ya do!

From an e-mail from our parents in New Zealand, where the rugby World Cup is in full swing:

[our mom]- "Excuse me, sir, why do you have a chicken on your head?"

Random French fan - "Eet ees not a chicken, eet ees a rooster, the national symbol of France."


I love you, France.

Well, the emperor Wu had dedicated his reign to good works in the name of Buddhism: building temples, helping the poor, and so on.  One day, the famous monk Bodhidharma came to his court.  The emperor described his good works at great length to Bodhidharma, and asked "So tell me, what is the value of my good work?"
 
To which Bodhidharma replied "Nothing."
 
Wu, taken aback, asked "Well, then what is the meaning of the world? What is the truth?"

The reply: "There is none."

Wu: "Just who do you think you areā€½"

Bodhidharma: "I have no idea."

And then he left.

If you have not read this, you should.

Because an alien that goes berserk at Britney Spears is awesome and amazing, and I approve of a platoon of tubas.

Sneak has discovered the Kremlin Grooving Boys ("the Groovingest Boys of the East!") and their song, Traktor.  Thanks a lot, Ivy.

Why, WHY do we envision this song being sung by these two guys throughout their day-to-day activities?
CRACK! )

Traktor, Traktor,
It is big and it is Red,
If it hits you, you'll be dead
Because it weighs five tons--HEY!

Traktor, Traktor,
Its wheels are big, its seat is high,
It's too slow for a drive-by
But still we carry guns--HEY!

One hundred years post the decline
Of Marxism, your traktor's fine!
Sky blue pain with pinstripe line
Prevent against decay!

Rogan: Yes sir, ladies and gentlemen and otherwise IDed, we have come to MST the g0ys due to popular demand!

Mac: And by popular demand, we mean, "some of our friends said it'd be great if we did."

If I make a website, I WILL...

  • Make sure the code actually RUNS
  • Test it on multiple browsers
  • Regularly check my links
  • Listen to feedback saying "so-and-so doesn't work"
  • Minimize images and animations per page
  • Try to be as dial-up friendly as possible
  • Keep images, stories, and comics in discrete, obvious categories
  • Warn of NSFW content
  • Minimize ads (hooray Officelive!)
If I make a website I will NOT...

  • Use complimentary/clashing text and background colors
  • Place text against a textured background
  • Animate ANYTHING that is not the focus
  • Automatically play music on loop
  • Have doodads that follow the mouse EVERYWHERE
  • Have sound effects
I once went to a website that had an animated analog clock follow my mouse EVERYWHERE.  The rest of the site was simple but not bad, but that one clock haunted my existence. (Thank god it was only on one page.)

This question from the Syntax quiz today entertained me to no end:

"An imaginary exchange between you and your annoying roommate Ogel:

Ogel: What did you do last night?
You: I didn't do nothin' last night.
Ogel: That's bad grammar!  You should say 'I didn't do anything.' I thought you were taking a linguistics course on syntax and semantics.  Aren't you learning anything?

Task 3. (25%) Instead of slugging Ogel, reply by briefly describing the actual topic of this course, using and explaining the terms
descriptive grammar and prescriptive grammar."

Lousy prescriptivists! *shaking fist of doom and glory*

Uh.  I don't know whether to gape, squeal, headdesk, or bust a gut.

I have just seen the job title 'Plumber' replaced with 'Backflow Prevention Technician.' There's even a certification for it.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather be known as a plumber than a Backflow Prevention Technician.  EVER.

Just... uh.  Oh my god.

Discuss, please.

Welcome to yet another episode of "Dorm Life is SPLENDIFEROUS!"

So today I had two exams back to back--and naturally, they were the two exams that I had to study hardest for.  Now I am finished: can you say glee?

But that's today.  I'm talking about yesterday.  What time hadn't been spent on memorizing bandwidths and frequencies of pretty much every major radio telescope project from 1960 onwards had been spent on worrying about memorizing bandwidths and frequences of pretty much every major radio telescop project from 1960 onwards.  So my brain was fried, and I was about set to forcibly introduce my head to my desk for an hour or so.

And then: "Hey!  Come and join our mud fight!"
