Improv Everywhere by

Writing about web page http://improveverywhere.com/home.php

Improv Everywhere are a group of New Yorkers who basically do street pranks/performances. Exactly what they do is hard to describe so it's best to watch:

Go and visit their site as you'll spend hours (as I did last night) watching some of the stuff they've been up to…it's genius.

I particularly like Slo-Mo Home Depot and Mobius, but they've got 50 so there are probably better ones :)

PS. I love our new [media] tags




Protecting your online identity! by

Writing about web page http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-Lf_v4e0Vg

This is a subject close to my heart seeing as I am involved in single sign on and password security and that like. Stephen Colbert makes a lot of sense :)

I particularly like his advice on strong passwords:

Ideally you should pick a password not even you can remember. Just close your eyes and slap the keyboard at random.

Christmas lights by

Writing about web page http://www.StupidVideos.com/?VideoID=1344

In light (ba boom) of the fact that we put up our Christmas decorations this weekend, here is an amazing video sequence of some Christmas lights by a mad American.

This has been going around for a while now but you might not have seen it…enjoy.

Some people have claimed it is fake some how, but the ever reliable Snopes says it is real

PS. Make sure you watch it with sound, it is pointless without the music




Winter's on the way by

Tue, 21 Sep 2004 13:05:21 GMT

Just got this joke through the old joke mailing lists…winter is on the way…

A baby polar bear goes to his mum as says "I'm a polar bear right?" and so mum says "yes darling why?". "Just checking" was the reply. A bit later he comes back "So I'm not a brown bear?", "no why?", "just wondering". Later still baby comes back "Both you and Dad are polar bears aren't you? No other sort in the family, pure bred Polar bear?" – " yes honey – both your father and I come from a long line of polar bears – why? Please tell me what's wrong". So the little polar bear says "well mum – I'm freaking freezing!"

ta da!

I thank you! I'm here all week!

I couldn't resist :)




Meetings, a practical alternative to work by

Sometimes, I think there are just too many meetings in the world, and not enough of actually doing stuff. To this end, here are a couple of pictures:

Some Things You Just Can't Explain by

Tue, 13 Jul 2004 13:02:26 GMT

A farmer is sitting in the neighborhood bar slowly getting drunk. A man comes in and asks the farmer, "Hey, why are you sitting here on this beautiful day getting drunk?"

The farmer says, "Some things you just can't explain."

"So what happened that is so horrible?" the man asked.

The farmer then decides to try an answer, "Well if you must know, today I was sitting by my cow milking her. Just as I got the bucket about full, she took her left leg and kicked it over."

"That's not so bad, what's the big deal?"

The farmer says, "Some things you just can't explain."

"So what happened?" the man asked again. The farmer relenting, continued "I took her left leg and tied it to the post on the left with some rope. Then I sat down and continued to milk her. Just as I got the bucket about full she took her right leg and kicked it over."

"Again?"

The farmer says, "Some things you just can't explain."

"So, what did you do then?" the man asked, intrigued. "I took her right leg and tied it to the post on the right. I sat back down and continued to milk her, and just as I got the bucket just about full, the stupid cow knocked over the bucket with her tail."

"Wow, you must have been pretty upset! But that's no reason to just sit here getting all depressed."

The farmer says, "Some things you just can't explain."

"So then what else did you do?" the man asked again.

Well I didn't have any more rope, so I took off my belt and tied her tail to the rafter. That's when my pants fell down and my wife walked in.

Family and IT support by

Anyone in IT knows how this feels. Everyone in your family assumes you know everything about computers and you are always the first one to call when their mouse gets stuck or the computer blows up.
