Any idiot can drive fast in a straight line

Hmm, even though it looks down right now, here are some examples from an IRC quotes page:

<Chirako> You know what cereal is really nasty?
<Chirako> Gravy Train.
<Chirako> It's like, these little hard pieces of bran and crumbly beef flavored crap. You pour water over it, and it gets soggy and makes gravy around it.
<Disco_Ernie> Chirako..that' food..
<Chirako> It was NOT dog food!
<Chirako> Mommy wouldn't feed me dog food!
* Chirako looks at Mommy
<Chirako> IT'S DOG FOOD!
<Chirako> She's always been obsessed with me eating dog food... >_<
<Chirako> When I was little, she told me the Jerky Treats were real jerky, and I kept eating the whole bag
* Chirako gags
<Chirako> If there's one thing dogs love, it's rich,
<Chirako> beefy gravy. That's why every nugget of
<Chirako> Gravy Train is basted in real beef juices.
<Chirako> Just mix it with warm water, and you can
<Chirako> give your dog a warm homestyle meal,
<Chirako> dripping with the delicious gravy he loves.
* Chirako graons
<Chirako> Oh, man.... I'm gonna kill her
<Disco_Ernie> At least Chirako will have:
<Disco_Ernie> Healthy skin
<Disco_Ernie> Glossy coat
<Disco_Ernie> Strong teeth and bones
<Disco_Ernie> Builds and maintains body tissue
<Disco_Ernie> Efficient digestion
<Disco_Ernie> Clear eyes
<Chirako> ..I should have known.
<Chirako> She NEVER makes me breakfast

<stank> guys.. i went out tonight.
<stank> i pretended to be a normal college student.
<stank> and i stood uncomfortably on a porch with a bunch of people i don't know.
<stank> but then i ran into bill and will, who were pretending in the same way.
<stank> so we talked about networks and i felt better.

<Dane-lo_brown[DJedi]> I got in trouble in school cause my Espanol teacher asked what architecture we learned from the latinos and i said cardboard boxes
<Paradox> So, guys, I have some news.
<Paradox> I know I usually don't talk much about stuff unless it's solid, but this is interesting, and I think you should know.
<Paradox> I just got an E-mail about an interesting proposition. * volsung_ perks up.
<Paradox> Apparently, there are lesbians that want my 'hard cock.'
* volsung_ flips Paradox the bird.
<volsung_> :)
<Paradox> They want it 'now,' apparently, so the timetable is somewhat limited.
<volsung_> Are you going to just take their offer as presented, or is there an opportunity for negotiation?
<Paradox> I'm not sure.
<volsung_> I'm sure your hard cock is in great demand. An exclusive deal might not be in your best interest.
<Paradox> Last time I got an offer like this, there were some catches.

<andy> moo spelled backwards is moo
<andy> no wait

<SDHawk> I tried to go to, but I can't spell it right.

<knobsthebear> How the hell did Korea find time between StarCraft and Diablo II to make it this far into the World Cup?

Again, this is my link depository. I don't want to forget about this how-to about OpenBSD and VPNs.

Since I started working a normal job (7 AM - 4 PM, Monday through Friday), I have been going to bed by 11 PM at the latest (yeah, soy un perdedor). This morning was the second half of my A+ certification exam. So, instead of studying last night, I went to the bar and drank 2 pints of Bass on an empty stomach. I went to bed drunk around 12:30 AM, didn't study in the morning and still passed. Ahh, the college life.

I *love* worthless data! While writing an email, I scanned my desk and observed that there were more empty cans of Diet Pepsi than of Diet Coke. My tastes are changing (in so many ways). Curioius as to what was the most popular "soft drink", I found this data:

Beverage         Share of Volume

Coca-Cola Classic          19.8%
Pepsi                      13.5%
Diet Coke                   8.7%
Mountain Dew                6.7%
Sprite                      6.4%
Dr Pepper                   6.0%
Diet Pepsi                  5.0%
Seven-Up                    1.8%
Caffeine Free Diet Coke     1.7%
Minute Maid Reg. & Diet     1.4%

Lets see, what's been going on lately?

  • I scheduled the second portion of the A+ certification exam for this Thursday. If the difficulty of this exam is on par with the first portion, I have already passed.
  • All of the interns are going to a Tigers game on Tuesday. I have only been to a handful of baseball games in my life and this will be the first time I have gone to the new stadium. Honestly, I hope all the money that is being dumped into Detroit does some good. Compuware is moving their headquarters down there, we have the casinos now, Ford Field will be the new home of the Lions, etc etc. Time will tell, as will the census. If the population reaches a million again, that is a good sign.
  • I saw UFC 38 last night. The only fight that was truly interesting was Genki Sudo versus Leigh Remedios. Sudo came out looking like a WWE wrestler, so I already hated him. When the fight started, he was throwing out taunts like candy and just acting cocky. Turns out, this ploy worked as it threw off Remedios' game. Sudo finished him with a lightning fast rear naked choke. Now I like this guy.
  • Speaking of UFCs and Detroit, Chris was telling me that the one that was held in Detroit was a complete disgrace. To allow the fights in Michigan, there could be no punching. How is that mixed martial arts? The pay-per-view numbers were *halved* for the next UFC. Good job, Detroit. The tag line for UFC 38 was "Brawl in the Hall", as it was held at Royal Albert Hall in the UK. Chris and Marty couldn't remember the tag line for the Detroit UFC, so we decided it had to be "Motor City Mayhem", "Motown Showdown" or "D-town Beatdown". So cheesy.
