So I got one of those wet-nap dealies from Chili’s with my lunch today. The back reads: “Cleans and refreshes without soap or water”. The ingredients: water, fragrence, soap.

That doesn’t sound comfortable

As innocent and mundane as some things are, they can still make me chuckle when taken out of context and in the right setting:


I guess it’s just not a phrase I’m used to seeing at work. Or maybe it’s early and I’m easily amused.

Avast! religious holidays

April 13th, 2006 14 comments

So like… Passover? That’s this week or something right? It’s the commemoration of The Exodus… the freeing of the Israelites from the reign of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt under the leadership of a great man.  Shown here is a rubbing from an ancient artifact, illustrating part of the epic struggle.  The end result of this is that some lucky saps get to take friday off to observe Passover. By “observe passover” of course I mean “drink and play video games”.

Clearly we devout atheists see a problem with this. We don’t get to take religious holidays. Someone pops the “religious ” card, and people don’t give them grief about taking the day off. So I feel like I should get similar treatment. From now on I’m going to take such esteemed secular holidays such as “talk like a pirate day” (Sept. 19th) and “steak and blowjob day” (March 14th or 20th depending on how it is observed) off. not only will I take these days for my own personal reflection, but I will stick true to the their meanings. I WILL talk like a pirate on Sept.19th, etc. Never let it be said that us kindly atheists lack devotion.

Every now and then, very large companies do very interesting things that get twisted into tools of absolute evil

This is an example of such a thing

not only will it convert text to speech. not only will it do this in a number of voices and accents. but you can save the output as a wave file and email it to some unfortunate soul… or save it for later.

At work we have made this thing say the most lewd things (and often in the “english-UK” accents). we have abused it to the absolute fullest of our capabilities. I urge you to do the same.
