Huh. I see the "best blonde joke ever" is making the rounds again.

(Or it's still making the rounds. That's what I always wonder when I see a meme I haven't encountered for a while: did someone decide to revive it after a long hiatus, or did it really just take this long to get around to that particular corner of the Internet?

Of course, the other thing I'm wondering right now is whether this post counts as a propagation or more of a meta-propagation. This is one of those times I wish LJ had a Trackback feature.)

I rather like this idea; I'm just a little too chicken to try it out yet. I'm scared of talking to strangers on the phone; usually I can manage it if I have a legitimate and fairly usual reason to be talking to them and can put this reason succinctly into words, but if I have something strange or complicated to request of them, I generally have to rehearse it in my head beforehand to avoid dissolving into stammers during the actual conversation. Being on the other end of a phone line from someone who doesn't know why I'm calling, when I don't know myself? I don't think I can manage that. Maybe if I were a better bullshit artist, but the fact is I hate lying, even for fun, unless it's to someone I don't expect to believe me for more than a moment.

Hmmm. Perhaps I could offer to sing songs at people. Or tell jokes. That wouldn't require bullshitting--or even explanation, for that matter, beyond "oh, I just had this whim." I wouldn't even have to tell people why I picked that particular number.

Some of you out there are probably braver than I. Do tell me if you think of something more amusing to do with this piece of randomness.

Huh. The Gender Genie mostly thinks even my whiny emo posts were written by a guy. I honestly didn't expect that.

Its accuracy stats as a whole are way lower than the creators predicted, but I wonder how much of that is due to people trying hard to fool it. I kind of wanted to, but wasn't trying to per se; I just copy-pasted all of the sufficiently long posts I could find.

Okay...I normally don't link to posts on [livejournal.com profile] baaaaabyanimals because the whole community is so filled with cuteness I'd never stop, but this...is a special case.

Oh. Em. Eff. Gee.

It's like a dessert er somethin. With a kyoot little black nose.

I'm all for teaching DUH
in America's schools!

...even if [livejournal.com profile] mcsnee's not the first to have come up with it. Me, I've been a believer in this theory ever since I discovered all the fun "features" of my reproductive system.

Job posting just encountered on craigslist: "Branding Topic -- Looking for Submission"

*raises eyebrow*

Meanwhile, is it just me or does this ad sound kinda suspicious?

My Unitarian Jihad Name is: Sister Pepper Spray of Loving Kindness.

Get yours.

Don't just generate a name; read the article if you haven't already (though it's unlikely you haven't, what with everybody linking to it).

Art project and therapy in one. And there's a feed for it at [livejournal.com profile] post_secret.

"Infinite monkeys typing on infinite typewriters might be able to produce Shakespeare, but they could never produce something like this!"

I was a little doubtful after reading the product description, but the customer reviews convinced me I really should read this book. This is one thing I will admit Amazon is good for.

*glow* I believe I've just had a logicgasm. Anybody else who likes logic games should immediately check out The Self-Referential Aptitude Test. It is most wondrous.

Y'know, it's odd: I enjoy Lovecraft parodies a lot more than I enjoy Lovecraft.

Share your bad jokes. [livejournal.com profile] haggis_bagpipes needs a thousand of 'em.

Why? No particular reason. But hey, if we had anything better to do we wouldn't be on LJ, right?

Ever wanted to test that conjecture about monkeys producing the works of Shakespeare? Thanks to the wonder of the Internet, you can now put your very own troop of simulated monkeys to work. Watch as they type away furiously, generating thousands of pages in which can be found up to 18 characters at a time of genuine simulated Bard-product. More than 20 and you get your name in lights...kinda like finding extraterrestrial life, only not.

There's just something wonderful about balloon hats.  Especially international balloon hats.

I see way too many people on LJ getting words like "phase" and "faze" mixed up. If you're one of those people, go here and actually read the answers. Please. For the love of all that is holy.

Hey [livejournal.com profile] angelbob, I think this would fit nicely into your theology. (If you're even reading LJ at the moment.)

I should absolutely not spend sixteen bucks on something so unnecessary to my daily functioning. I most certainly should not. But oh, the temptation!

(Who would have thought [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes would be the death of me?)

Someone in Canada went and made a pronking robot!

(And to think I found out about this through [livejournal.com profile] amusingwords. That is fast becoming my favorite community.)

"Welcome to the home of extreme ironing - the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt."

Nope, it's not a hoax. It's been in the papers and everything.

"I think my mum's quite proud of it really," Shaw said. "She likes ironing, so anything that encourages people to iron she's happy about."

Finally, an icon generator with real depth of detail! The cartoonier ones are all well and good in their way, but I'd just about despaired of putting together an icon that would actually be recognizable as me. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] kaligrrrl!
