    Ha, and I beat Haz too.

    It seems that this thread and "Post Count Pumpin'" are in a neck-and-neck race to the 2,000 post mark.

    You know, it's only a short ride from [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3C5sc8b3xM]Asimi-3PO[/link] to [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZslRQvv5zM]an incident featuring a toaster, a garbage disposal, and a 16-pound hammer[/link].

    Personally, I welcome our Robotic Overlords. Maybe they will be able to stave off the coming zombie apocalypse...

    Speaking of our new overlords, looks like someone with authority and a budget watched "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control" recently:

    Chanel RPG for the god damned win.

    Also that crucifix gun is awesome. I'd wield that if I were a super hero.

    Today's Penny Arcade is a sort of smutty version of the Monty Python [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe1a1wHxTyo]"Four Yorkshiremen"[/link] sketch:

    http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/05/07/

    It's be nice if they revisited the topic once in a while, continually trying to top one another. Heck, I may find some friends and give it a shot myself; though probably not here, since I get the impression that the very acknowledgment of genitalia is frowned upon.

    In that respect, poon and beer have more in common than word structure.

    Where the Hell was Dr. Salzhauer in 1982 when they turned Larry Anderson into David Hasselhoff in the course of 10 minutes?? Children all over the country could have used a book like that.

    Last Finals are tomorrow wish me luck. I hope I did well on mine today it was so hard. sorry for the whining, I just need to do something to take my mind off for a sec, been working so hard this semester. I hate group projects by the way. They should be called peaches projects with useless group members. I have turned around my schooling so much in the past year and half I want to keep it that way. Just one more day and two tests and a paper. I can do it. Get the studying done and the paper. I can do it.

    HA! I did my last 2 finals yesterday sucka! And all group projects are BS unless you're allowed to "grade" your teammates. I only had one team-project this semester, in Finance, and we beat the whole class (which gave me 20 points on yesterday's final). I would be more proud of me and my partner's win...but 95% of the class (of about 70 students) are business majors....and let's face it....they're business majors.

    I'm impressed with how well you can type considering you have a diaper in one hand and the knowledge that you'll have no free time, money or sleep for the next 18-23 years in the other. Congratulations.

    Well I hope I got enough sleep. I swear to god If I didn't have ADHD I have no idea how I could keep running with the amount of sleep I have been getting. Final tests are today. Lets do good, do good.

    also I realized I need to figure out a way to have a limited time reading wikipedia. I can't help it I love information too much and I can spend hours just abosorbing info. I am like Johny 5 from Short Circuit. Need Input, more input.

    Eddie Izzard live is awesome, much funnier than I'd expected. I love his shows, but their tone is more along the lines of "an evening with Eddie Izzard" than straightforward stand-up. Being in the audience, however, gave the show a much more intense vibe. It was pretty much non-stop laughs, save for those moments when he seemingly kills his own momentum on purpose.

    Sadly, anyone who knows Izzard's work also knows that it's his charisma and delivery that makes the material work, moreso than the material itself. One of the biggest laughs of the night was when he referred to Darwin's book "Monkey, Monkey, Monkey, Monkey, Monkey, YOU".

    Kinda clever on its own, but he really sold it into something guffaw-worthy.
