gMail Account

So, gMail accounts are still widely coveted? I have one to give away. Who wants it? For what? Seriously, for what? Email me at it: erikjb is the username. You can figure out the rest. I expect this to go over really well. 😛

What Do You Say When…

Too good not to keep for posterity, this one: me: i removed the accounts of anyone i deemed unfit to continue beta testing me: if you'd like to file a complaint, you may do so with our board of advisors me: which includes and is chaired by me, the only member. betatester: and how do […]

Pulp Fiction Fonts?

Scott was trying out an early alpha/beta build of PulpFiction and what did he see? Funny stuff. 😀


From a conversation I had today: erik: do you see a page or an error? andy: nope erik: do you see a page xor an error? Friends always look at me oddly when they say "do you want to see a movie or go out to eat?" and I reply "yes." I try to explain […]

Labels for The Stupids

Stupid people are great. Without stupid people, we wouldn't have these: On a Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping." Damn, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside." The shoplifter special? On a bar of […]

Creative and Horny Seeks SWF

At least he's got a sense of humor. Too good not to post. Plus I don't go to work until 5 today. 🙂

Gandhi and Mary Poppins

José makes a funny: Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him… …a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by […]

The Illiteracy are Appalling

I kid you not, from Then you wake up at the high school level and find out that the illiteracy level of our children are appalling. Ugh. Double ugh. Triple ugh. Quadruple ugh. Let's hope the ugh doesn't extend four more years.

Phone Support

One side of a phone support conversation: press command-R… yes, no, the one beside the space bar no, not in the Finder no, the trackpad the thing above the button near the latch you move your finger around on it next to the space bar it has an apple on it no, not the Finder! […]

Spammer Typos

A spam slipped through my spam filter(s) today. You can see it to the right. What did I notice? No, not that "" is probably not the correct TO: address, but rather that the domain name is grammatically poor. Grrrrr. I'm not sure whether I'm more annoyed by the fact that it got through, the […]


Poker in the front. Liquor in the back.

Chemtrails and Crackpots

You know those streaky, puffy clouds left by airplanes? Bet you thought they were harmless, huh? Apparently they're not! They're called "chemtrails" and they're actually government spy planes spraying us with chemicals! Uh huh. The page is funny, largely because the people on it are so stupid, gullible, or fanatical that you just know you […]

The Eighties

File this under "I'm listing this for myself." And, to spare you, I'm putting it in the extended entry…

Duck Hunt

When I discovered that you could control the ducks in Duck Hunt with the second controller, my dad never beat me again. I'd sit quietly, the controller subtly nestled between my legs as I sat Indian style "awaiting my turn." Ahhhh, memories. Thanks Mike.

99 Bottles

Justin posted something about 99 Bottles of Beer written in several languages (for example, Objective C), and it reminded me of a "trick" I played on a former roommate of mine in school. You see, years ago there was a little application (I looked and couldn't find it, but for all I recall it could […]
