Chirrel

I want to become a genetic scientist, and find a way to cross-breed squirrels and chihuahuas, thus making the best animal EVER.

Unintentionally sexual comic book covers: Part 1.

Unintentionally sexual comic book covers: Part 1.

Yes, this really happened.

The Great Boston Molasses Flood

"In 1919, a 50-foot-high steel tank loomed over Boston's North End. Built by the Purity Distilling Company four years earlier, the tank could hold up to 2.5 million gallons of molasses to be used in the production of rum and industrial alcohol. At 12:40 pm on Wednesday, January 19, 1919, the tank burst, sending a gigantic wave of molasses rushing down Commercial Street through the North End, eventually covering two city blocks. Twenty-one people died in the disaster and 150 were injured."

Chat Room Hilarity

Here's a hilarious comment that was made in the Kingdom of Loathing chat that had me laughing for about ten minutes. For anyone who doesn't play the game, "by my crap" is a misspelling for "Buy my crap," referring to person's store they run in-game.

NuclearDachshund: by my crap...just restocked
liquidpanel: Now that's a good expression. "by my crap..." -hic-
liquidpanel: Like, "by my crap, I've never seen such madness!"

The Best Page on the Internet

IT'S A TRAP!

Yeah, I don't know why this page exists either. It is kinda funny, though.

Idiots

Around a month ago, I posted a link to a website (that appears to no longer be working) made by some person who said that he would eat some rabbit he nursed back to health if people didn't donate money to him and give him a million dollars by the end of the year.

Yesterday, some idiot left an insulting comment, obviously thinking that I was the one who wrote the page and was saying that I would do this. They thought this despite the fact that it was a link to an external web page. Here is their almost unreadable message, in all its badly written glory:

you are one sick person! nothing but a hick bastard! if your seriously going to eat a fucking bunny if you don't have 1 mill. in the bank.....then you must have shit for a brain. and filled with greed which maybe your that much of a low life that you dont care..which doesn't really surprise since your from oklahoma!! no offense to other ppl for oklahoma.....not very impressing there kevin! but whatever have fun rotting in hell! ohh one more thing...i find it very interesting that there's like 5 sites with different animals yet all threatening the same thing! AMAZING!! not very original either!!
I, like the person who wrote this, am also amazed. I am amazed by their inability to grasp the most basic concepts of spelling and grammar. Such as capitalizing the first letter of a sentence, and only using one punctuation mark at the end. I am also amazed by their ability to end almost every so-called "sentence" with an ellipsis (...). I am also amazed by the way they repeatedly insult Oklahomans, and then say "no offense to other Oklahomans."

And finally, I continue to be amazed by the fact that people this stupid can actually USE a computer. I'd think that even if they tried to use one, all the drool would ruin the keyboard.

Help Stop the Creation of a National Database of Personal Information

American Civil Liberties Union : Help Stop the Creation of a National Database of Personal Information

The rise in identity theft has impacted many of our lives. Just today, for example, data broker LexisNexis reported that personal information on 310,000 U.S. citizens may have been stolen.

Now, several Members of Congress are pushing legislation that would compile your most personal information, such as your name, address, social security number and perhaps even your DNA, into a national database. This giant network would then be accessible by numerous government officials and shared with Mexican and Canadian bureaucracies, dramatically increasing the risk of your personal information being stolen and abused.

Take Action! Urge Congress to oppose legislation that would result in a national ID and imperil your personal privacy.

This proposed legislation would create a national system to store your personal contact information and personal biometric information, which could include your fingerprints, DNA or retinal scans. It would drastically alter who has access to your personal information. Thousands of government employees across North America would have access to these personal details, and hackers, thieves, terrorists and organized criminals would have a single one-shop destination for identity theft.

Based on the outcry by concerned activists like you, the legislation’s supporters know they cannot get it to pass as an independent bill in the Senate so they are trying to attach it to an unrelated appropriations bill.

A vote is expected later this week and we need you to contact your Senators and urge them to oppose adding this ill-conceived legislation to the supplemental appropriations bill.


The link at the top will take you to a webpage where you can very quickly and easily send a pre-written email or fax to your Congressman telling them not to vote for this thing. It only takes a moment.
