That Paris Hilton tried to trademark the word 'hot'.

A co-worker of mine a few years ago lived for news of Paris Hilton and even bought her book. We both worked the late shift on the phones, just the two of us, and it was all she'd talk about between calls. I try to forget, gods know, but that piece just stuck.

When D&D tried to trademark "demon" and "devil".  Talk about making yourself the butt of every joke....


And my personal favorite: The Windows 98 presentation where it came up with the infamous blue screen of death (good job there).

Religion never ceases to amaze me for its inherent evil.
Today's example comes from christianity. As far as I can see, a person can be abused her entire life. Any cruelty you can imagine, she has suffered it. However. If she has done even one bad thing in her life herself, there is a chance that she'll go straight to hell when she eventually dies. While every one of her tormentors can go to heaven, provided they perform the necessary acts minutes before they die.

My mind is full of junk, so I had trouble trying to filter through it to see which really was the most useless or at least the most long lived.
Registration of Dad's first vehical, that one was close, but the one I can remember immediately is my Dad's payroll number....3662...
Not used by him for more than 25 years, I had to memorise it as I used to go down to the pay office to get his wage packet on a Saturday morning.

Yes....there was a time when a ten year old was not only trusted enough to get the family's weekly income, but the community was trusted enough not to steal it from her on the way home....

My head is so full of static.  Right now, it takes a largely writing bent... I have a ridiculous number of fiction projects in the works right now, not to mention two... three?  Three and a half that need polishing.  Something high-tech is brewing in my mind... the seductive call of Cyberpunk, I hear it...

Also, organizing a garage sale.  I'm an incurable packrat, but I'm planning on going this summer to stay two months or so with a friend (living out of a suitcase) and then moving to another city.  So, reducing the bulk is superior, and I know I don't need all this stuff.  But how?  How??

Yes Hal, we have.
However, I have to say, that the area we live in at the moment is one that allows us to leave our doors unlocked all the time.
The only time we do lock them is when we are away for longer than a day and the dog isn't there either...
So...I guess there is hope for us yet?

Most useless piece of information that just popped into my mind...

A man named Bulger, I think he was an Admiral or a General, doing the battle of Waterloo, had a chronic, almost unheard of phobia, that he was going to give birth to an elephant.

The attitude I get from people that obsess over their PC's, particularly gaming rigs.

Its in my head because I briefly looked into getting a good spec pc and the holier-then-thou-I-don't-have-time-to-play-in-the-dirt-with-you-kid attitude I got from the people I wanted advice from wasn't too encouraging...

Fuck them, let them think their world means shit. A shop that's actually interested in helping you set up a gaming rig will do it with professionalism and not so much lip.

I think you're talking to the wrong people mate. I got good advice, and plenty of help from a couple of folks in different gaming groups I belong to when I was doing the same thing a month ago.

Have you ever noticed that drama seems to follow the same people? It's like they carry a bottle of it around with them like a salt shaker and sprinkle it on when life gets too mundane... and then, when it gets too salty, they look around with innocent eyes and ask 'why?'

The fact that a pregnant goldfish is called a twit/twat/twerp is a simple urban myth.

A goldfish lays eggs, therefor by definition cannot be pregnant.

Not really a true deffinition of 'pregnant' is it?

A hen lays eggs every day, whether they are furtile or not.
Our fish have layed eggs which weren't fertile, we as humans 'lay' an egg every month, but we are not pregnant.

Though we are being a little picky, the fact is that a fish of any kind, whether with or without eggs is not called a twit.

twit (twt)
tr.v. twit·ted, twit·ting, twits
To taunt, ridicule, or tease, especially for embarrassing mistakes or faults. See Synonyms at ridicule.
n.
1. The act or an instance of twitting.
2. A reproach, gibe, or taunt.
3. Slang A foolishly annoying person.

[Short for obsolete atwite, from Middle English atwiten, from Old English ætwtan : æt, at; see at1 + wtan, to reproach; see weid- in Indo-European roots.]
