Castle!  
It's about 30 seconds into the episode, and I think I just nearly died from laughter.

There's another 41+ minutes of episode to go yet.

This seems hazardous... but awesome.

Regarding the day's news:  
It amuses me a little that Barack Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on the same day as the completion of a pre-emptive strike by the United States on neutral lunar territory for the purposes of assessing the fitness of the moon for long-term occupation.



(Re: the prize itself? It's hopeful and optimistic, and would seem to follow in the spirit of Nobel's will. The committee seems to think so too: interview with Geir Lundestad*, Secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; NPP 2009 press release. Also: Obama's remarks on the prize.)


*This may take some time to load; their site seems a bit Barackdotted.

In a little under 5 minutes, they are going to hit the moon with a rocket. Just thought you'd like to know.

I think I may have figured it out  
Things conservative US wingnuts say: a partial list.
  1. Obamacare means death panels!
  2. You can take my gun from my cold, dead hands!
Clearly, their problem is that death panels + the NRA = ZOMGguncontrolz, and therefore substandard healthcare protects your second amendment. IT MAKES PERFECT (non)SENSE.


And now, back to bed.

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My five words (or three words, one initialism and one noun phrase) were supplied by ryttu3k.

Cut for length, and to protect unstable layoutsCollapse )

My Life According To Buffy the Vampire Slayer  
Meme* kidnapped from Lauren:
Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as 'my life according to (band name)'.
I have cheated slightly, inasmuch as I have divided some songs from OMWF into seperate titles: I've Got a Theory / Bunnies /  If We're Together, for example, is broken up for three answers. Still!

Here be memery.Collapse )


* Yes, a meme. Having not posted for weeks, even those silly Scientologists would know better than to expect actual content right away. That, and memesheepery is fun! But mostly the first thing.

Two things, both Spooksgyver related:

1. No. Bad Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. We do not run around Miami trying to kill people.

2. ...I can no longer watch an episode of this show without wanting yoghurt. I'm not quite sure whether this is better or worse than it'd be to have acquired a mojito addiction from Spooksgyver.

Scroll wheels: A helpful guide  
Having seen altogether too much ZOMGDONOTWANTPOST splashed all over the nargletubes in recent times, I feel it's time for a refresher course in the correct operation of modern human interface devices as they relate to being a grown-up.

I am aware that many of you are, indeed, highly skilled at use of human interface devices and/or at being grown-ups, and I ask that you give your patience and encouragement to those among us lacking in the skills necessary to play nicely with others.

So, dear interwebbertubes, here is a HIGHLY EFFECTIVE procedure for dealing with things that you, personally, do not wish to read on the Internet:
  1. Assume a firm yet relaxed grip on your computer mouse.
  2. Place a finger on the scroll wheel.
  3. Draw the finger on the scroll wheel toward you, pressing lightly on the wheel. This may cause it to feel as though it is moving; this is perfectly normal.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 until the unwanted item is no longer visible on the screen.
  5. Go about your day normally.
This procedure is adequate for scrolling on most modern desktop computers, and can help to reduce time used by, and occupational overuse injuries caused by, posting comments or entries to whine about things that you have read, and the ensuing flouncing when others point out that the whining is, perhaps, nonessential.

Come back next week as we venture into more advanced techniques, including the correct operation of the difficult and mysterious 'PAGE DOWN' key.

I now return you to your regularly-scheduled series of tubes.

For days now, I've wanted something to go just wrong enough that I have a reason to say (loudly enough to be overheard by any and all witnesses) something very much like this:

Captain Jesus H wonderflonium-bouncing Sparrow with both utilities and heathens aplenty sinking my battleship to make shoes for orphans on a pogo stick by the power of Greyskull during a thundering typhoon in the conservatory with the lead pipe in accordance with the prophecy somewhere in the Persian Gulf.

Predictably, for a few days all has been well with my part of the world.

Stupid world, ruining my week by not ruining my week. Bah.
