image And the winner is… the same guy who made headlines today because he tweeted from the altar at his own wedding – Dana Hanna.

Are his other tweets just as original as "Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday"?

Not so much… After looking at TheSoftwareJedi's (that's our Dana) timeline out of curiosity, I saw the following gem which definitely takes The Most Useless Tweet To Date award in my book. Here it is:

Yup, it's real and it was not rhetorical or followed up by some witty response. Nope. This was it.

Horny Train Humps Truck [PIC]

image From time to time my, still curious, mind accumulates a variety of questions and concerns which it has to spill onto the pages of this blog. How random are these? Pretty damn random, and I need to see some answers, quick. Oh, and I’m deliberately not searching Google, as I want to facilitate discussion. What fun would it be if I just looked up all these?

Except for one thing – spread information about such especially heinous institutions.

Does my story have a happy ending? Maybe, or maybe not, it depends on whether you think the …

Central Room of Potatoes


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on March 13th, 2008 in Humor, WTF?

Today Travis was messing around with a Chinese site blinkx has indexed a short while ago http://www.tudou.com and saw a cryptic error message that started coming up on all pages. The message looked something like this:

Courtesy of OSnews. This comic still cracks me up, weeks after I saw it. It's one of those comics that your CS teacher would print out and slap on his door, so that in the moments of doom students would at least have something humorous to look at. Here it is:

Awesome… Or A Warning From Nature?

The DailyMail reports on some crazy ocean foaming in Sydney. What exactly are they talking about? Perhaps the pictures will explain better (or not).
