You should have looked her straight in the eye and say 'Gee thanks, chocolate totally makes up for the cheating.'

You could always reciprocate.

Death looks mighty delicious.

Just saw this on the front page of Reddit. I assumed it was yours:

Run, do not walk, away from this one.

Finally watched a Harlem Shake video. Your memes are pretty sucky these days, Internet.

Yeah, I'm with ya, ian. Don't really get the Harlem Shake vids

Political discussion via facebook between my very conservative mother and my somewhat liberal friend. Oh geez... all stemming from a politically neutral comment I posted about the stupidity of today's media.

My barber-lady cut my hair too short. Now I either have to put product in it or look like an electrified hedgehog.

Totally unrelated: Ladies/fashionable men, regarded the electrified hedgehog look, is it 'in' this season? For say, the next month?

At first I was like "whaaaaaa?"

Then I was like "well, they're only 30 seconds long..."

Now I'm like "eh, good effort, not as cool as that other one"

Tomorrow will probably be "WHEN WILL THIS DIE ALREADY??"

And now my friend has come back with not one, but TWO walls of text in reply to my mother's last comment. And when I say "wall of text," I mean from the top of my browser to the bottom and THEN SOME. Good lord... I'm not even going to BEGIN to read them, I'm just gonna smack him the next time I see him. Maybe I'll try to find a book on proper sentence and paragraph structure before then too.

Whoa. Since when has Facebook been this hostile? I thought that was strictly limited to P&C.

'Delete comment' an option?

Hardly. Facebook is filled with the same people who put comments at the bottom of news articles. For myself, it's a guilty pleasure to read the inane stupidity that most people post. It's like a car-wreck: I don't want to look, but somehow I can't look away.

And it's worse because it reminds you that you know those people in real life, or at least have only a couple degrees of separation between you.

I would, but they seem to be enjoying themselves so much.

Truer words have rarely been spoken.

My petty loathe today, I went out and spent $25 to buy Skyfall on Blu-ray. What do I get when I first put it in? Half a dozen trailers and an ad for the Blu-ray formay itself, on a Blu-ray I'm currently playing. Nothing like paying for ads. And Hollywood wonders why streaming is killing physical media. Still, I'd rather have ads at the front of my movie than pay the same amount for a digital version that can get yanked away or shut off at any time.

The flu. That is all.

The Monday after a busy weekend of moving very large objects around, combined with being sore from walking a convention, is always a long day.

I for one am looking forward to the trailers advertising the 4K format that will be at the front of every movie you buy. After the ones for DVD and Bluray already pushed "We know we already claimed this before, but THIS TIME when we say it's a crystal clear picture that's like a movie theatre experience in your home, we mean it!" so hard, the hyperbole is going to have to be through the roof.

My favorite DVD ad is still the one that was on a VHS tape. It showed a clip of the upcoming movie that was blurry and dark; this was the "VHS" version. And then it showed a picture that was sharp and clear; this was the "DVD" version. Of course, because it was being played on a VHS tape it was obvious that the DVD sample wasn't really a DVD sample and that the VHS sample looked worse on purpose.

This is like how you see more commercials for your current TV provider than all others combined. I have also seen iAds on my iPhone for the app I was currently in.

As soon as I saw an ad for a Sharp Quattron, showcasing its ability to display more colours, on my limited-colour TV, I was convinced. The proof was in all the yellow things they kept showing.

Wait a minute, why did Sharp use a Japanese man to advertise their special yellow technology?

Oh my.

I've seen some Blu-ray ads on DVDs that were pretty similar.

People who don't want to do their job. When this is at a VA office, even better. This is how ultra fiscally conservative Republicans are made people.

Your bosses-the US Congress, and President have it in a law that a vet or his counsel can request a complete file. Nowhere does it say, "unless it is really big and might take a bit more work." Lazy sons of bitches.

F*** me. Our new and seventh reporter just quit. On his first day of work. Our new news agency does not need this bulls***.

My intention to avoid any exposure to—indeed any knowledge of—the Harlem Shake meme has failed catastrophically, when a co-worker made a HS video with another department and hasn't shut up about it for two days.
