Following Dee‘s lead I have made a couple of JibJab videos over the past week and a half, each making me laugh out loud. The above is a newly released custom JibJab video knocking Republicans :) JibJab, of course, has a Democrat bashing version as well.
World of Warcraft is permeating our lives and what we do to ourselves. Wow. This guy is truly one crazy dude. Read this quote from this member of the Garithos guild on the server of the same name.
I was about 4000g away from being able to purchase my epic flying mount and riding skill, so I came up with a bright idea to raise the money and save me farming the gold myself (which would’ve taken months with my play schedule).
I proposed to the members of Garithos.com (best website evar imo;) and the Garithos community at large, that if they donated a total of 4k gold, that I would get…
Swallow or its going in your eye
tattooed on my arse.
Needless to say, the coolest bunch of mofos playing WoW, came up with the money, so I came up with the goods.
Over my time off and on World of Warcraft, I’ve seen a number of questions regarding Druid Forms. Well, the other day while reading a random WoW forum, I stumbled on an animated signature image that detailed some of the key forms a Druid character can become. Here are the words of wisdom:
Amazing descriptions to live by. Thank you. That is all.
Once upon a time, when Earth was still a beautiful place, an evil force came to turn all living things into Vegetarians.
Three students from suburban Massachusetts would step up against this catastrophe… to end Vegetarian Supremacy.
Mark, Jesús, Maria and their foes would make amazing personal discoveries as the two forces clash.
And so began the ultimate saga about friendship, heritage, sex and explosions.
Although the video below is College Saga in its entirety, the production was done in 4 episodes originally. Throughout the episodes, Final Fantasy is most heavily referenced, although Secret of Mana and Zelda (not to mention Star Wars and Napoleon Dynamite) find their way in as well. I must say that the first episode is by far my favorite as it mimics Final Fantasy the most in regards to character movement and text. The later 3 episodes adopt use spoken dialog over text-boxes in many cases which veers from the Final Fantasy theme. Regardless, the video as a whole was quite funny. Have a look-see:
If you’re not a programmer, have you ever sat in awe as programmers on “the Big Screen” (*cough* movies *cough*) dazzle you with their uber-typing as they construct 3D blocks of code that animate around the screen and reflect onto the programmer’s face? OR if you are a programmer, have you ever watched a movie and wanted to puke due to the inaccuracy of what the movie industry claim programmers do?
Yeah, we work with complex stuff that random passerby don’t understand…but holy balls does Hollywood have it wrong.
Matthew Inman at Drivl.com debunks the Hollywood fluff in 10 well thought out and quite humorous points:
Code does not move
Code is not green text on a black background
Code has structure
Code is not three dimensional
Code does not make blip noises as it appears on the screen
Code cannot be cracked by an 8 year old kid in a matter of second
Not all code is meant to be cracked
Code isn’t just 0100110 010101 10100 011
People who write code use mice
Most code is not inherently cross platform
I simply listed the headers of each point, to get the full dose of sweet debunking action check out the full article.
My favorite description of them all has to be the 10th item: Most code is not inherently cross platform which reads:
Remember in Independence Day when whatshisface-math-guy writes a virus that works on both his apple laptop AND an alien mothership? Bullshit!
If real life were like film I’d be able to port wordpress to my toaster using a cat5 cable and a bag of glitter.
I know this is old…but my wife and I were just discussing this excellent Saturday Night Live commercial spoof with Jessica Simpson. I remember watching this for the first time and dying laughing, so I figured I’d share the wealth.
How can one person be so attractive? Just wow. To accomplish this look, simply loosen your lips and shake your head back and forth really fast…and snap a photo. This photo is not altered in any way :D I have Batchelder lips.
According to the following chart from Venganza, I am sad to say that we are seeing a steady decrease in the number of pirates in relation to the temperature. It seems these powerful pillars of society are unable to take the heat on the high seas, driving their numbers down.
