One side of a cell phone conversation overheard in the hallway:

"So you want me to bring the computer home so you can do a resume?"
[pause]
"You're not going to slap her or anything, are you?"
[pause]
"Don't do that."

Makes me wonder what the story was.

For your amusement, a Flickr group consisting of people's photos of odd warning signs, showing stick-figure people in varying states of distress. Mostly worksafe.

Okay, I may be stuck at work again, for the umpteenth time, but at least I can look at this. Definitely from what my former roommate and I call the TMTOTH department (that's "Too Much Time On Their Hands"), but worth it...

"Don't use the number of new-born zebras in Kenya to predict the life of truck tires on the Pennsylvania Turnpike." -- from Using Data, by Peter G. Bryant.

I love my dad. Even his statistics textbook has a sense of humor.

Take a phrase. Let babelfish translate it into French, then back to English, then to German, then back to English, then to Italian, back to English, into Portuguese, back to English, finally to Spanish and back to English.

What do you get? Well, can you identify this song lyric?
"still we give the form to the chain of the time."

Or this proverb?
"The bird receives the continuous screw soon."

Or this song lyric?
"Can the word of or considering it of the first light of the shovel, of which what many we it subsequent to hailed ferocious this in the lustrum of the penumbra?"

Or this kids' song?
"It knows the man the paper, man of the paper, man of the paper?"

Too much fun for people with too much time on their hands! (Like me, at the moment.)

I should write a real entry soon -- I have things to write about -- but this is too funny to leave for later. Take a truly atrocious D&D module, add MST3K, and ...

I'm amused. The little kitty laptop on the "accomplished" icon disappears on a black background. That's one squished-looking pussycat!
