Comcast Hijackers Say They Warned the Company... →
“Then, they say, they contacted Comcast’s original technical contact at his home number to tell him what they’d done. When the Comcast manager scoffed at their claim and hung up on them, 18-year-old EBK decided to take the more drastic measure of redirecting the site’s traffic to servers under their control.

Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About →
An old favorite. I don’t think I’ve ever linked it here before.“Our sink is blue and we’re not talking about it. It happened over a week ago; I was leaning over the sink, brushing my teeth, when I noticed that there was a sort of lazuline patina that had seeped over most of the surface. Margret hasn’t mentioned ...

Nooners on Thursdays Redux
topherchris: onemoretimewithfeeling: yourdp: Man Thoughts: When I hear the word “nooners,” trail mix is not the first thing that comes to mind. Not just a man thought. I went there too. I’ve figured out the formula for getting stuff reblogged. Perhaps I should work in a sexual reference to everything else I post this week. It might be exhausting to go for that long, but totes worth it. Aaand you...

I hate when you give one word answers, makes me think there’s something wrong...– Aaron (via lfarm) Oh Aaron, I can totally relate. Especially when the answer is followed by a period. That little puncuation mark can be so irritating!!! Examples: Yes. No.

Ok, I’ll admit it. I want to see this movie, mostly because of the cast, minus Justin Long. He annoys the eff out of me. claudia: Trailer for He’s Just Not That Into You. I didn’t read the book that this movie is based on, and the title alone makes me want to hit something, but I’ll see this.
I am very fond of the phrase “batshit insane.”
Mannequin vs. Career Opportunities →
I had never thought about this, but it’s really true! 1happyst: Here’s something that has always bugged me. How does the movie Career Opportunities get made after the movie Mannequin? I mean essentially they are the same movie. …
Why don’t we just pretend he didn’t die? Just for a bit!– Larry Wilson - Weekend at Bernie’s And there it is. The entire plot of the movie. So absolutely ridiculous, and yet, I watched that movie over and over again when I was a kid. I never claimed to have great taste in movies.
I have such a crush on one of the guys auditioning for Beauty and the Geek! He’s never been on one single date. It is so hard to believe…because he is so. hot.

Jeff: The Mets! Where are the seats?
Audrey: Not the Mets, the Met - the Metropolitan Opera.
Jeff: One little "s" makes all the difference between totally awesome, and who cares?
The Smart Car →
I know it’s better for the environment to drive a car like this, but I wish it looked a little less ridiculous. I see a guy drive one of these to one of the other businesses near me, and I feel it kind of emasculates him. On the other hand, he must be pretty secure with himself to drive a go-cart around in public.
On the whole 60 Minutes vs. Millenials fiasco
Love #5. topherchris: To recap: 60 Minutes ran a piece saying that millenials (those born from 1980-1995) are lazy little pricks who put their yoga classes above work, among other things. This has caused a fervor online among individuals born, coincidentally, from 1980-1995. I shall summarize my opinion, as usual, in easy-to-digest bullet point form: If you’re a millenial and offended by...
