I'm a little confused about all this "Iran better not..." and "If Korea does this, then we'll..." talk from the U.S. government. What do they think they're going to do to these countries, precisely? The U.S. hasn't even been able to wrap up this Iraq thing, which seems to always have been a significantly less serious threat.

It kind of reminds me of that Black Knight scene in Monty Python's "Quest for the Holy Grail".

"What are you gonna do? Bleed on me?"

"I'm invincible!"

"You're a loony."




Oh wait. I guess we have nukes we can launch at them, too. I guess that settles it.

I think what needs to happen is a group of us find a Viking long boat, and we should sail up Lake Michigan and raid the Michigan Upper Pennisula. Who's in?

And where the hell do we come up with a Viking long boat in this day and age?

P.S. There is almost no chance of profitting from this. Or even coming out alive, though I am sure we can somehow work out a deal to get into Valhalla.

What a rip off.

Yesterday was suppose to be the most evil day of the beast ever. I didn't see any earth destroying explosions, terrible demons with pointy horns that drool flesh eating acid. No sick horses, no horde of zombies. Or emo kids getting punched in the face. Nothing. I didn't even get to see any tiny imps. At least the great Satan could have broke me off a little imp. Was I on the wrong evil planet yesterday, or what?

Although, as I mentioned elsewhere, it was kind of sweet typing shit into Excel spreadsheets at work, pushing "control + ;" and seeing 6/6/06 popping up all day. Unfortunately, that's about as sinister as it got.

Anyone running a business online should read this and understand it:

This will impact you if it passes. It will impact casual users, too, but it could cripple people making a living running an online business.

Anyone interested in buying a Gameboy SP with a flashable X-Rom cart? Details on the X-Rom cart:

http://www.gameboy-advance.net/flash_card/gba_X-ROM.htm

I'm looking to sell for $110, which covers shipping. What you will get:

Cobalt Blue Game Boy SP. It is used, looks used, but I am the only owner, and it is taken care of. I'm selling it because of how infrequently I use it. Anyone unfamiliar with the Gameboy SP, it is the flip top one that is pretty small. It is about 3.5" by 3.5" or something like that. It gets over ten hours of battery life. I play it so rarely that one charge lasts me a month or more.

X-Rom 512M flashable rom cart. Kind of sweet, because you can load Gameboy ROMs on it, and carry quite a few games on one cart. Or, even cooler, and this is the reason I got it, you can throw an emulator for the onld 8-bit Nintendo on there. And you can load a lot of games. So if you have fantasies about playing Zelda, Zelda 2, Ninja Gaiden, Megaman, the original Final Fantasy or Castlevania on a Gameboy, you can do it with this. I think I have thirty games loaded on it right now.

Link cable for X-rom cart. It is a USB cable, and you flash the cart with your PC. You will obviously need a PC with USB. You will also need game ROMs, which are easy enough to aquire.

A few extra game carts, including Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Castlevania Aria of Sorrow and Circle of the Moon, and some old arcade collection, I forget which one. It has Galaga and Dig Dug on it.

A nice little carrying case for the Gameboy that also has a pouch to carry a few carts around.

If you have a Gameboy DS, this cart will work with it, but you need the SP to flash the cartridge. Email me if you have questions about how it works, etc. It is pretty easy. If you're interested, email me at dt10111@yahoo.com. When I sell it, I'll remove this post, or update it or something. I'll consider trades if you think you have stuff I'd want.

I have a bunch of neat crap (gadgets, etc) to sell, so this is only the beginning!

It is pretty brilliant when Sprint calls to do a random customer satisfaction survey, and my connection drops during the interview.

If you've emailed me recently from a gmail account, and I haven't replied to it, please resend. I found an email in my Spam box today from a gmail account. I find that pretty annoying, but at least I've been sort of paying attention to it lately.

I guess that's a note to yahoo mail users: watch for gmail addresses in your spam box.

There are so many great caption possibilities for this picture:


Cool dudes show President Bush how to "pump gas".


I can almost imagine the conversation going on there.

I hate regurgitating shit I find on the Somethingawful forums, but this is simply one of the best things I've ever heard, and it must be shared:
