Geek Flowchart

This has been making the blog rounds today. Apparently it's originally from the New York Times. The easy way to go is to straight along my path... no D&D to liking sunlight to girls. The other paths are much much funnier though.


Infinite Joke Material

There are some things that can overwhelm into inaction... either via awe, fear, shock, or in this case, absurdity - R Kelly & Usher's cover of Nephu's "Same Girl" (my only excuse is that I set my whole iTunes library to "max shuffle").

anyway, maybe when I have recovered  a bit I'll post some thoughts. but for starters, does anyone else thing that this really should have been an SNL (Timberlake & somebody) item?


Funny headlines

1. Wolfowitz blames World Bank for "unclear rules".

Apparently the whole "give your girlfriend a crapload of $$$" is frowned upon in Europe? I mean, the US Govt is obviously fine with funnelling money to personal/private interests, so how could he have known?

2. Rapper arrested for drunk driving.

Wow, I can't top that. Even by noting that this happened a day after Eve wrecked a Mazerati. ouch.

3. Lohan has big plans for 21st birthday party.

So she's gonna do something different for a change? Stay sober, keep her knickers on, avoid flashing anyone, and... ? Ooops, just kidding: Lohan is excited by the prospect of going clubbing, now that her club-owning friends "don't have to worry about getting into trouble" for letting her inside, she told host Ellen DeGeneres.

Lunchies, perfected

After some intense research (math shown below), a team at Leeds University has come up with the procedure for a 'perfect' bacon butty. Key parameters include broiling the bacon for seven minutes at 475 F, and using bread that is 1 to 2 cm thick.

The formula is: N = C + {fb (cm) . fb (tc)} + fb (Ts) + fc . ta, where N=force in Newtons required to break the cooked bacon, fb=function of the bacon type, fc=function of the condiment/filling effect, Ts=serving temperature, tc=cooking time, ta=time or duration of application of condiment/filling, cm=cooking method, C=Newtons required to break uncooked bacon.

Take The Quiz!
I have no idea why this ranks your dirtiness but I can't say no to an internet quiz. So far the top score is held by me with a dirty dirty ranking of 350.60, followed closely by Dan with 340. These can easily be out done by you overachievers out there.
