The register with full glory of what codemonkeys’ world really looks like. Amazing stuff.

Also, apologies for the lack of updates during the recent weeks. I’m on the verge, or just beyond the verge of a lot of new things, so bear with me.

How much sense does this makes:

In the comic-book “Doom Patrol”, a man from N.O.W.H.E.R.E., in an attempt to kill Danny the street, locks Crazy Jane in a Tearroom of Despair, where she is told that there will never be any joy, happyness, or hope for her. She tells it she likes it that way, the paradox kills the man from N.O.W.H.E.R.E.

How the hell did I miss this one all these years? And me an avid Morrisonologist?

Give a man lemonade, and you teach him how to drink. Give him a lemon…

Yes, people, we live in a severely disturbed, yet incessantly unstable world.

Most of the Internet’s leading technology sites reported last week of a great new browser that protects user privacy by leaving no Internet footprint (i.e. no cookies, no script, nothing). Turns out said “Browzar” is a spyware ridden Internet Explorer shell that hijacks your homepage and sends Internet usage history to advertisers. Oh, and it does leave tracks. And that sound you hear in the background? That’s the Internet’s journalistic credibility rolling down the hill.

Hairy Potty publishers were forced to correct erroneous entry in the latest paperweight in series, after a over-diligent reader found out that “[said book mentioned that] Hermione Granger had scooped 11 top results in her Ordinary Wizarding Levels (OWLs). [However, in the previous book] she had only taken 10 subjects.” Wow. Potters are indeed the new Trekkies.

One of the Baldwin Brothers is writing Christian comic books. Words defy me.

After handing a ticket for illegal parking, a Brazilian traffic warden, went to the car owner’s hourse, killed her, and sawed her in half.

The BBC finds that blind drivers are dangerous.
I give up.

I have the wrong job

Which might just bee too obvious when seeing that writer Iain M. Banks just told his publisher to stuff it for the next christmas since he was too busy playing Civilization rather than writing.

Of course, I could be founding a new company, called “Go Ogle” and then explain to the search giant what the hell was I thinking.

Then again, I could be working for Apple, running a very diligent, unbiased and profound investigation on my employer’s own |Chinese sweatshops finding them not to be sweaty nor shops. I’m a good liar, I can pull it off.

Or I could be a web-journalist, writing “beware the return of the bubble” articles, which is stating matters after the fact, as the bubble has re-manifested already in the form of “Web 2.0”, and issuing yet another of those no-warnings. I mean “don’t invest in companies that have nothing but hype to sell”? That’s like saying “don’t jump off a cliff”, or “install security updates“. It’s almost a no-brainer.

On the other hand, working for the Rolling Stones seems to be somewhat less lucrative these days.

And, in closing, this.

When the world’s gone insane, you make a lemonade

with 2 comments

Apart from the heat outside making it feel as if Israel has been conquered by the hordes of hell, it seems the world this week has gone insane. Well, insane-ier.

The UK airports authorities have issued a ban about anything that may be used to hijack a plane or attack the pilots, which adds to about… Well, anything. I have to assume that since you can take off a shirt or a scarf and choke the pilot until he complies, means that soon you’ll have to board British planes naked. Always said clothes are the modern man’s own nemesis.

John Dvorak claims “Elvis predicted the dot-com crash“.

Maxim throws an article counting the 12 greatest video game toilets ever. The tag line “We came, we saw, we shat” isn’t helping anyone keep a straight face (and keep out of the straight jacket).

Cute Overload display a huge image of a sleeping cat’s nose.

Turns out Science Fiction is good for you.

Google demands people stop using the term “google” as a verb. Sony wants the media to refer to their latest console as “PLAYSTATION®3

A drunk guy bets he’ll cut off his own dick and wins. Two women try using a cat for sexual pleasure and end up being sexually attacked by said cat. (Thanks Warren Ellis)

And all of this is from the first 5 minutes of browsing. I dread to think what’s the rest of the day’s going to turn into

What is this?

“Interesting, Captain, it seems to be… odd.”
“That’s your scientific conclusion, Mr. Spock?”
“It is the logical one, Jim. Those images cannot exist in a world that doesn’t have “odd” in it.”

Enough pseudo-classic-Star Trek gabber. I have this collection of Russian Paintings/cartoons on my browser. I’ve no idea what those are, or where did I find them (BoingBoing mayhap?). They are driving me insane. WHAT ARE THEY?

This is why I don’t leave the house

Probably the most insane dialog this side of madness:

Old Chinese lady: Ex-see-cus-see me.
Old Chinese lady: Ex-see-cus-see me!
Gangsta: Man, what are you excusing me about? Fuck you!
Old Chinese lady: Fuck me? Ok, take-a off the pant.

Stairway in silence.

Old Chinese lady: Ex-see-cus-see me!
Gangsta: Sure thing, ma’am. I’m sorry.
Chinese kid: And that’s why we respect our elders.
