Rubber ducky, you’re the one …

You make playing with my USB so much fun.

Maybe I should get one of these to fix my current problem with finding a suitable boot device for a box I’m trying, yet failing, to bring back to life.

Basically, people make the craziest things for their USB ports, from whirly gig fans, to ashtrays, to you guessed it, rubber duckies.

For more on this story.

*sigh* Stupid French.

Idiot woman weds dead man.

So, in order to consumate ones marriage wouldn’t this be necrophelia?

Another bash.org quote…and how true it is.

I was pretty dumb about computers.
Then I learned you could get porn on them.
3 years later I’m a system administrator.

And I’ll be god damned if that’s not the truth!

Ack!

What a total FREAK!

Just gives me the oogies!

No, not Michael Jackson related, sorry.

I don’t know about you.

I would not, even on a dare, even knowing I could take a pill later, eat a friggin tapeworm!

However, having something living up my nose would explain why it runs all the time…and it would be cool if from time to time it came out and looked around then went back up there…it’d be like a little pet you could keep around with you.

No comment.

Yes, he’s flown the coop, he’s probably off in France somewhere sipping a fine port with Roman Polanski by now.

I speak of none other than the King of Pop…weird picture to be followed.

I think it would be cool if he went in for his mug shot, and they told him to take off his hair and his nose! Like they should have done with Marv Albert!

EEK NO!!! GET HIM AWAY FROM ME!!!

The devil cometh, and he shall take you all. You shall know him for he was black of heart who attempted to fool you by becoming one. The only way to tell he is around is by his vile and evil eyes, with their inner glow, and his nose that is not a nose. Be forwarned!

My dear friend, Harvey.

Monday, June 9th, 2003

I don’t recall how long ago it was I moved in to the Reston building. A little over a year ago, maybe a year and a half ago. Anyway, it was a few months after that that the bathroom doors were painted.

So, they’ve been painted now for at least a good eight months. It was shortly after that that I became familiar with Harvey.

If you look closely, on the first picture, you can see Harvey on the right hand side, about half way between both bolts.

I like Harvey, he doesn’t say much, but he’s been hanging around long enough that he’s sort of become family.

I thought Harvey would be leaving us, you see, I have one of “those” people that use our bathroom, and he opens the door with a paper towel and throws it on the ground, right near Harvey. So, I thought for sure that the cleaning crew would see Harvey, cemented to the door via paint, and scrape him off. However, Harvey must have had his eyes closed, because they didn’t see him, and there he remains.

Go Go Chicken Catching Mobile!

Friday, June 6th, 2003

For many many years, chickens have been caught by hand. They’ve been put in a little V like contraption, and their heads have been chopped off. As explained to me by my friend Mary when she’d help her sister decapitate chickens on her sisters small chicken farm. Now, Mary had a newphew who probably didn’t mind running around catching the birds, and since Mary is a little weird, I’m sure she didn’t mind too much either…at first.

But how cool would it be to have your very own chicken catching machine! That’s right, all things have been tried, including a huge chicken vaccuum machine! Imagine playing suck-em-up with chickens! I think that would be great fun. But I guess it didn’t do very good things for the chicken. And this new machine is LOVED by PETA, and of course, that’s what is important, right?

Some of the biggest fans are animal-rights groups, including People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The machines are far more gentle on the birds than human handlers are. “We support using machines that reduce the panic, fear and horror of chickens,” says Karen Davis

Ug, stupid people like that make my head hurt. Reduce the panic, fear and horror of chickens? Um, never mind the fact that they’re going to have their wee little heads severed, much like the poor peep head I received in the mail a few months ago ( where was PETA THEN!!!! ), as mentioned above?

Cool machine! PETA proves, once again, you have to be an idiot to be a member!
