Earlier I posted a comment elsewhere about the ability to manipulate other people’s comments on one’s blog. However, the passing quality was so low that there was no point trying to make them worse, and I didn’t want to delete any when I get scarce traffic as it is. But that is DUST compared to this:

I’m checking my comments and I see this screen:

Oh dear God. This is crazy. This is all any hacker, cyberbully, spammer, or stalker needs to make your life miserable. Huck Huck Huck Shot Shot Shot Shot Shot Shot. And people wonder why their data gets hacked or they get viruses.

(Oh, and yes, my autocorrect corrects huck to huck and shot to shot)


Facebook? Nah.

So I decided to give Facebook a try, because Google+ and a school blog are seriously inadequate for online socializing. However, I got offended during the signup process and decided against it.

Two anchors left…

So now that I’ve finished the assignment, it’s back to posting random stuff.

I tried my hand at writing a private blog some months ago. Unfortunately, due to dastardly circumstances, I had to delete it. During the process, my awesome mind found an allusion to the process. Just don’t make fun of me for it.

“Jack, please, stay with me. I need you. I love you forever”

“Hold tight, Jack, we’ll get through this together…Jack? NOOOO! JACK!”

(whispers, crying)Goodbye, Jack, I’ll never forget you.”

I had to post it. 😐

“Australian animals are venomous” they said

Leave a comment

In the name of all the Australian wombats, kangaroos, dolphins, wallabies, mammals, koalas, and the other 97% of the animal population that is not venomous, I must charge to defend your legacy.

But seriously. The only poisonous animals there are, like, the platypus, some snakes and some insects. As compared to the hundreds of cute, unique, and largely harmless animals that live in this great continent. Do not defame the name of the Australian outback with improperly researched comments.

First world problems

Eh, why do I have such high standards? And why does everyone overlook them?

A Very Wistful Bucket List


As Adam said in a previous comment elsewhere, it’s a bad idea to open up yourself to the world – someone will always find a way to nail you for it. Nonetheless, this is an assignment that I feel very personally about. It’s simple. No complex baking of raw opinions/feelings into text. Just a (and yes it pretty much is a ) wish list. A G-rated one, true, but still, essentially a wish list.

Now, this will be a list of everything, even stuff that is not currently physically achievable. So time travel and friends are included. Enjoy, and comment about specific items, no “cool bro” trash. And I’m sorry if some of these don’t make sense, but like I said, it’s personal.

Anyone notice how those looong blogs just turn your interest off? It’s all text and no fun. I’m trying to spice mine up, while waiting for the next assignment.

Okay, so I’ve been receiving updates from Gizmodo since Saturday, and I love it. It’s the technical equivalent of TIME, no lie. The stories are to the point, interesting, and G-rated, meaning I can reblog anything. You guys should check it out.

I was reading articles about Apple’s exorbitant moneymaking, and I saw this:

Apple CEO Tim Cook Made a Funny!

By Brian Barrett

During Apple’s call today to discuss its monster earnings last quarter, CEO Tim Cook was asked his opinion on Windows 8. He said all of the expected things about how the iPad has unlimited potential, but also weighed in on tablet-PC hybrid devices with this little bon mot:

“You can converge a toaster and a fridge, but those things are probably not going to be pleasing to the user.”

I get your point, Tim, but if I’m being totally honest with myself? If I saw a toaster-fridge at Lowe’s on payday I would buy it. No question.

Update: And because this is the Internet, FridgeToaster has already responded on Twitter:

I stopped rolling on the floor long enough to reblog this. Comment if you get it.
(A similar article was found on Geekwire, which explains the irony more thoroughly)
