Student Comedy Genius

April 13th, 2005 1 comment

I saw this on Richard’s website yesterday, and I’m loving it for it’s simplicity and genius.Girl:

Are you allergic to nickel?

Boy:

I’m allergic to Nickelback…

Apparently, Richard overheard it in “Cafe Mondial”, a bar in the University of Reading’s Students Union building (for those not in the know).

This is quite funny!

April 3rd, 2005 No comments

This is quite a funny postAnyone else watch the video for “Round Round”, that classic recorded by those greats, the Sugababes, and notice that when the whirlwhind starts up, the extraordinarily hot stick thin bald guitarist woman is thrown skyward with the drumkit, yet the ‘babes remain firmly attatched to the ground.

Anyone else take from that that the Sugababes are really, really, *fat*?

Clocks Moving Forward

March 27th, 2005 No comments

I’m probably not the only person having problems with this today. I think I’ve probably updated all of my watches, and my alarm clock, but I can never be quite sure. And then there is the clock in the car!

Anyway, I think this guy has got the right idea. Instead of moving time forward 1 hour, spend 23 days moving the clocks back 1 hour at a time! Brilliant.

Wow! How Precise!

March 3rd, 2005 No comments

I read an article on The Register today (Link), which describes a space object that is “burping” out radio waves at fairly regular intervals. Anyway, the following quote is available in the text The mystery object is estimated to lie between 300 and 24,000 light-years from Earth. Wow! I had no idea that humans had invented telescopes with such precision in their depth perception! 😉

Now This Has Reminded Me of Something

February 23rd, 2005 No comments

Wow, photo-associative memory rocks.

I saw this blog post, which talks about the size of the guys hair in the picture. That then reminded me of something that I saw in the town where I work yesterday lunch time. I saw a guy with the biggest “afro” that I have every seen. It was huge. I’m talking bigger than Lionel Richie in the 1970s big. Actually, we’re talking bigger than this little beauty

On a completely different note, the guy in the picture looks exactly like a guy that was in my halls when I was in my first year at University (2000 – 2001) called Andre.

Lazy Spelling and Suicidal Birds

February 18th, 2005 No comments

I noticed the other day on a packet of sandwiches, that somebody had at work, that the company who produced them had described that as “lo-fat” and “lo-salt”. That really annoys me. It’s one letter. Just one letter. Surely you can’t be so lazy as to not put in the final letter on a three letter word. It’s not as if it is a difficult word to spell, it’s not a long word, but yet they are too lazy (or worse yet, they are so “hip”) that think they don’t need to put on the final letter of the word. Unbelievable.

I’ve also noticed recently, and particularly last week, that there have been an increase of suicidal birds that feel they want to end it all by flying at very low level (about 3 cms off the ground) across roads, right in front of my car. Is there something about this time of year that increases depression in bird species? Or perhaps they need urban-training – like the fox I saw last night that has obviously been well trained as it tried to cross the road on a zebra crossing!

A Brilliant Little Article

January 28th, 2005 No comments

I was pointed in the direction of this by one of my work colleagues. It’s a brilliant little poke at getting Windows Virii to run under Linux+Wine; and therefore awarding each virus a “Linux Compatible” score.

This Sounds Like Fun

January 21st, 2005 No comments

An advert from a paper’s classified adsWanted. 30 Chinamen and a zeppelin for elaborate practical joke. Can you help?

I love. Sheer comedy genius. Well done

Seen Here

Apparently this is a brilliant piece of comedy by the amazing Jimmy Carr. I also noticed today that the phone number is one digit short, so it is probably a joke. Well done, though, Jimmy.

Busted Break Up

January 15th, 2005 No comments

I’m not too fussed about this, but I heard a brilliant quote on the radio this morningWhy don’t James and Matt get a new guitarist/singer and called themselves “Mended”?
