After pasting something random again today:

"Anachronistic Antidisestablishmentarianism: A Case Study"

I noticed a pattern. It always happened in Yahoo Mail, in the subject line. So I googled this strange phenomenon (after googling Anachronistic Antidisestablishmentarianism: A Case Study and turning up a Wordpress blog post about a teen searching for Jesus) and guess what!!!

It's a Yahoo Mail Easter Egg!!!!!

This has to be my favorite easter egg ever. Yes, even more favorite than the one in the last post. I then proceeded to go through them all. I love them. I am SO using some of these phrases for posts in the future.

And better grammar *coughGrammar Nazicough*) The Bunny and Bear were famous Microsoft in-jokes that you can read all about in Wikipedia if you feel the need to.

This Button...

So? What is it called?

A: The Emergency Flasher Button
B: The Hazard Light Button
C: Pizza for everyone!
D: Iunno but it looks muy importante.
E: THE PANIC BUTTON!!!!!!1!!!!!eleventy-one!!!!!

The correct answer is E. Okay, technically it's A. But I think it's E. Various people have corrected me, but I refuse to think otherwise. Because it's funny. It makes me picture people hitting the button and then running around the car waving their arms and screaming. And because such a button, all big and red and centered and dangerous-looking, just looks like, I don't know, a panic button should look. (Because when I see triangles, I think panic!)

Aaah, TGIFriday

... and the subsequent temporary brain death thats comes with it.

So, what am I doin' all of this lovely long weekend?

Oh, just hangin'. You know. In a literal sense.

The yawn in this video is perfectemundo. (That is not a word. But in my book it is, baby!)

Not Another....

Paradox, that is. Listen closely and you shall see...

Now here is a word that just does not make much sense.
It means using long words.
Now, just using the word sesquipedalian would indicate that you were sesquipedalian.
Which would make the use of the word sesquipedalian just a formality, as it had already been shown that you use long words.
*brain fries*

Today's Timewaster

Pivot Stickfigure Animator.

It's a free download that makes it ridiculously easy to draw and animate little stick creatures. Here's one I just made. You can click on it to seem him in full-size animated glory. Yes, his name is Howard.

PS: If you get a song with the right beat just right, it will look like he's dancing to it. This was highly amusing at 11:30 pm. (I recommend Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.)

Question of the Day

Is that kind of noodle pronounced rAYmen or rAHmen? Discuss.

(regular posting will resume soon- Chris has been sick. Blech. Until then I'm posting all this stuff to make it up to all my non-existent readers.)

So the song Log got stuck in my head today. You know, from Ren & Stimpy. The video completely cracks me up, and of course I'm most obliged to share the earworm so you can enjoy it too.

I wonder who came up with the term earworm? I mean, it's not a nice term. It's slightly strange, actually. It makes me think of some fat white writhing beast, a little like a maggot, that crawls across your pillow at night, enters your ear, latches onto your brain with its mouth thing like on a tapeworm, sucks it out during the night, and turns you into a zombie. (Feel free to hold me responsible for putting that lovely image into your head.) They should call it ear-itch, or repeater, or something like that.

And speaking of which, did you know there's a science to earworms? Nobody knows exactly why they happen. Apparently, though, it is because they cause some sort of cognitive itch, and the only way to get it to go away is to scratch it. And the only way to scratch it is by playing the song in your head... over and over and over again... until you want to scream. And repetitive songs or songs with sudden twists seem to be more likely to cause these cognitive itches. So, you learned something new today.

A Small Thought


This is what is being blasted through my headphones right now. I wonder when it changed to this song. It just occurred to me to wonder why I'm listening to this.
