Adventures of Link

Alright - I'm in quite a mood. I just typed up an entire post, went to save it when it promptly disappeared. All this after my site inexplicably went down for a couple of hours yesterday. Infuriating. Anyway, some random thoughts before we get to the links:

  • Watching the Red Sox lose in stomach-punch fashion to the Yankees isn't nearly as excruciating as it was last year. Winning the World Series after performing the greatest comeback in the history of professional sport (against the very same Yankees), will do that.
  • You can pick your friends. You can pick your nose. But you can't pick your friend's nose.
  • Um... Gwen? It's O.K. We know you ain't no Hollaback Girl. Still, it's an ironic statement coming from someone who won't shut the hell up.
  • It is indeed possible to overdose on tea.
  • I'm out of thoughts, and the ones I just mentioned suck. On to the links.

Note to self. Next time I decide to transport a corpse on a gurney using a pickup truck, I'll either lock the wheels on the gurney or lock the actual pickup truck. Some classic lines in that there news story y'all.

Speaking of classic lines in a news story. I'm not a big fan of Fox News, but parts of this story sounded like a South Park sketch. For the record, I've been to both Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA. The mayor's actions are completely unfounded.

For you physics minded folks. Doom Funnel Chasers!!!! A lot less menacing than it sounds. Think "video put-put golf" but in outer space.

These people really don't want you to push the button. I'd be careful if I were you.

I placed an order from Amazon the other day - something I do every so often - but before I made the purchase I made sure to read the user reviews of the product to make sure I wasn't buying crap. I don't know why I bothered. There are a lot of stupid people out there. There are also a lot of very funny people, too. The Amazon user comments can easily break up the monotony of the day with a few laughs (David Hasslehoff comes to mind immediately.) The trouble is knowing where to look. Thankfully however, someone has set up a blog which does all the dirty work for us. Check out Amazon World and laugh 'till your silly.

Thursday's post saw me blabbing about IQ tests. I couldn't find a decent one to take online (plus they all take way too long) so here's the senses challenge from the BBC. Haven't finished it myself, but I'm in for an "F' if the first two questions are any indication.

Tetris - 'Nuff said.

Good weekend, folks. Go Sox.
