I liked it too! And I heard about it from Pweb. So I think I should count.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Love - my tiger and donkey picture I posted a long time ago. It's the wallpaper on my desktop at work, and it's a great conversation piece.

We’re literally hardwired to confuse agreement for intelligence. And this is why literature and philosophy departments are anything but the shining beacons of critical rationality they purport to be: human beings, no matter how polysyllabic their vocabularies, tend to use their intelligence to better leverage their stupidity.
http://rsbakker.wordpress.com/2010/06/1 ... -thinking/
In fact, the place you’re most likely to find critical thinking is the sciences, not the humanities. The sciences train you to suspend your commitment to your conclusions pending evidence, whereas the humanities train you cook up evidence for conclusions you have already committed to–usually because they ‘feel right.’ Where the sciences train us to swim against our cognitive instincts, the humanities train us how to more effectively indulge and exploit them–how to win arguments rather than how to get things right.
So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

LOL I only wish I had the kind of free mental capacity to spend on such deep levels of spite. Alas, I do not. I do love seeing science finally catching up to the point that we can replace our anecdotes with hard evidence, though.

Have I ever mentioned Adventure Time here? Because it's great. It's the only thing I watch on tv. Every monday is adventure time day.

Zero, if you don't find and watch The IT Crowd, I'm going to have to hunt you down and hurt you. Three seasons, six episodes each, half hour episodes. Do it.

I already watched it! They pre-released it online and my husband downloaded a torrent of it since we don't get BBC and wouldn't be able to watch it until it came out on dvd otherwise.

I love working with my Oldbies. They're generally so mellow and it's always a good shift with them. I don't even mind the toileting and bathing, since the rest of the shift is so laid back. :D

I love little kids. Their so task-oriented and then easily distracted. Case in point.

LK-I want that toy(points to a pirate in a store window)
Me-How about that one?
LK-No I want the pirate.
Me-Are you sure?
LK-Yes.
Me-Ok

I love Landon Donovan for scoring the stoppage time goal for the USA that propels them into the round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup. I think the USA is going far this year.

Zero, if you don't find and watch The IT Crowd, I'm going to have to hunt you down and hurt you. Three seasons, six episodes each, half hour episodes. Do it.
I don't know when I last looked, but I do remember looking and the place I rent videos from did not have it. This weekend I looked again and it was there, so I got the first season. I've watched three episodes so far. If you're in a bad mood and just want to feel good about getting me to watch it or something, you should stop reading this post now.

I'm going to be brutally honest: this was awful. Not that it's without it's redeeming qualities. The DVD menu I think was great, as is the opening sequence (the music itself is okay). But the show... I feel like going into a little detail because I just watched it and it's on my mind.

First of all, the live audience or laugh track or whatever it is really irritates me. I find it very difficult to find anything funny with that going on. I also either didn't realize, or I just forgot (this is more likely) that this is British. Maybe British comedies and I just don't get along (all I could think about when watching it was "Monty Python" and how much I don't like that). Many jokes were just telegraphed so very much (the phone she's talking on is not plugged in; I know it's not going to be plugged in! But I have to wait 2 minutes for the scene to end!) The "IT department" looks of course silly, which is the joke, but it looks like a parody of a 15-year-old stereotype. Maybe that's the joke, I don't know, but it felt too much like the lab of an elementary school or something which was just too.... clashing for me for the rest of the show.

But there are things I like about it. Many props and stickers and such in the background are very cool; I really like the "fair use has a posse" sticker (which is real apparently; I'm not too familiar with EFF propaganda). The techno-babble and whatever sounds legit (though there was a scene where Moss was explaning what he was doing, and they just had literal static as the audio; I wanted to hear what he was saying, dammit!). I like listening to Roy and Moss talk (Moss reminds me a bit of Jemaine from "Flight of the Conchords"). And I do like some jokes; the awkwardness and drawing-out of some scenes has its charm (the very first scene in the first episode would have been good were it not for the audience).

Honestly, when going into this I thought the best-case scenario was humor making fun of IT people that would jive with me, and the worst-case scenario was the kind of humor I hate that I hear coming from IT people. What I encountered was neither of these; what I saw was just... unrecognizable.

I'll probably watch the rest of the disc, but I don't expect to watch any more.

No problem. To each, his own. I thought there was a good chance that you'd like it because both my husband and my brother (two computer people by occupation) really loved it. But oh well! :)

Someone stole the deck out of my brother's car a few weeks back, so it was looking to be a quieter ride than normal until I jokingly said we needed to be the radio and my brother seriously started singing and I joined in. Neither of us can sing worth a darn but there we were, being our own radio. It was a Drake/B.O.B./Katy Perry/Led Zeppelin/Teen Witch medley. Best brother ever.
