Feast for the Eyes (05:01PM)

I hate PETA and I love meat, but I still think this is awesome. (via IDLYITW)

Almost makes me want to eat more meat to goad them into getting some actually famous celebrities to do stuff like this.

Also, did you know that meat keeps you from breaking out?

Another Reason to Move to Paris (05:08PM)

I'm already planning to move to Paris at some point in my life, but I didn't expect the additional benefit of celebrity stalking (en français).

Stop Hotlinking (10:16AM)

Hotlinking has brought down this site twice in the previous two months, and I'm sick of the shit. So, appropriately, hotlinked images will be redirected to this.

Consider this a first warning. Any further ridiculousness like this and I'll Goatse your ass (pun intended).

The Black Donnellys (02:20AM)

Feels like they rounded a bunch of Law & Order bit part actors and gave them all a show. Seriously, I only watch CI on a regular basis and already a quarter of the characters look familiar: who knows how many of the rest were on SVU or the original?

It's almost as if NBC got tired of giving them charity bit parts or something, so they made a new show so that they'd all be happy.

We Apologize for the Delay (05:07AM)

The Apocalypse is now one year late and counting. As a Party member, I'd like to assure everyone that we still have a hidden agenda, and appearances to the contrary are just a smokescreen.

Well, at least that's what the last Ministry of Truth memo said.

Frogs Can't Get a Break (03:27PM)

This made me laugh out loud for an entire minute, and I'm still chuckling when I read it.

The Normans weren't French you muppet! When you realise that they were in fact Vikings then the fact that they won a battle makes a lot more sense.

From the comments section for a news story on a French offer to merge with the UK in the 1950s.

Excuse me, what kind of Senate? (11:34AM)

A line from CTV's report of PM Harper's plans for Senatorial elections.

Liberal Senator Romeo Dallaire said he has no problem with moving toward a Republican-style Senate, but said if senators are to have real powers, it should be outlined with a constitutional change

I think, at the very least, these folks and these folks would disagree with the characterization of an elected Senate as "Republican-style".

LOL I bought this camera in Hong Kong, but I guess I should be careful what 10.1 megapixels can do (via MopJuice).

Keiko Wants Caucasian Passion (06:46PM)

Keiko wants YOU, but only if you're white!

Haha someone's whoring out for some white bread lovin' (via dontlinkthis):

I have a nice apartment in Ochanomizu and you are welcome to stay with me if you are UNDER 35 and YOU ARE NICE LOOKING and YOU ARE WHITE.

Reminds me of the South Park episode where the Japanese try to brainwash American children with toys.

Chinpokomon Executive: You are American.
South Park Toy Store Owner: Yes.
Chinpokomon Executive: Ohhh, you must have very big penis!
South Park Toy Store Owner: Excuse me, I was just asking you what your up to with these toys.
Chinpokomon Executive: Nothing, we are very simple people with very small penis. Mr. Hosik's penis is especially small!
Mr. Hosik: So small.
Chinpokomon Executive: We cannot achieve so much with such small penis, but you American wow, penis so big, so big penis!

Did anyone notice that "Eugene Volokh" was the name of some unseen janitor in tonight's season premiere of Boston Legal?

"War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing."

Joys of Handhelds, Past and Present (01:15AM)

Yah so I haven't been blogging for almost two months. Sue me.

What compelled me to blog? My uncle's return, which means that the PSP I bought in Hong Kong but didn't bring back was finally back in my hands (it didn't accompany me for customs reasons; I was way over the duty-free limit already). Being in Hong Kong meant that I can buy the system for cheaper than here. It also meant that I can buy the not-available-in-North-America white version.

You need a paper towel to catch all that drool?

So far, the only thing I've been doing is getting my ass handed to me in Virtua Tennis (I am getting better at it, though). But it put me in the mood to look up some history of handheld gaming, and I came across the following picture. Seriously, I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this.

Side view of Atari Lynx.  © original owner.

This is an Atari Lynx, the first handheld video game system with a colour screen. Apparently, it also works well to substitute as a dumbbell. From the looks of it, it looks about two inches thick, which would be more than twice the thickness of my PSP. For that kind of thickness, I'd rather get a book.

I'm glad that I wasn't big on video games back then, or who knows what kind of godawful relics I would have now. But then again, it's not like manufacturers stopped making handheld gaming monstrosities

Profanities vs. Bots (01:00AM)

I've been receiving some random MSN add requests from what appears to be Mainland China accounts. I blocked them all until I decided to try letting one in.

Yah you better run.

Further experiments showed that these were indeed spam bots and there was no point in swearing at them anymore. But it was fun while it lasted.

From the Upside-Down Continent (04:11AM)

Blogging from Magnetic Island, about halfway down the Queensland east coast. Australia has been fine to me, and I'm already feeling rushed that I can't stay longer than three weeks.

There's tons of things to say but it's hard to start. Suffice it to say, however, that scuba diving on the Reef is one of the most incredible things that anyone can ever do.

And the sky here is huge, and there's a ton of stars.
