This is what DCU Online should be like (lots of pictures at the links, safe for work, although I make no representations to the possibility of hysterical laughter):

Those who have dutifully downloaded Firefox 3 will now type "about:robots" in the address bar.

That is all.

Links are safe for work, I swear. Although the second link URL itself may be a bit suspect by its very name...

There is a place in County Donegal amusingly named Muff, and apparently there is indeed a diving club there.

There's even a website (which is probably a windup, to be honest), but it does sell the T-shirts.

Of course I'm ordering one. You had to ask?

Other rude place names in the UK and Eire, for your edification..

From the Canadian Medical Association Journal, December 7, 2004; 171 (12):

Acquired growth hormone deficiency and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism in a subject with repeated head trauma, or Tintin goes to the neurologist
Antoine Cyr, Louis-Olivier Cyr and Claude Cyr
Antoine Cyr currently attends Chez Marlène daycare, and his brother Louis-Olivier Cyr is a first-grade member at École primaire Champlain. Claude Cyr is Associate Professor with the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, Que.
We describe the unique case of a public figure who is well known for having delayed pubertal development and statural growth (Fig. 1). We believe we have discovered why Tintin, the young reporter whose stories were published between 1929 and 1975, never grew taller and never needed to shave.

We do not know Tintin's perinatal history. According to Hergé, the author of these stories, Tintin was 14 or 15 years old when he was created.1 He would, therefore, have been at least 60 years old during his final adventure with the Picaros.2 In that book, even though he had reached adulthood, Tintin has no beard or grey hair, and he exhibits no signs of pubertal development.

Recent literature has helped us gain a better understanding of the pathophysiology of hypopituitarism resulting from repeated head trauma.3 We believe that the multiple traumas Tintin sustained could be the first case of traumatic pituitary injury described in the literature.
khaosworks: (Iron Man)
In another hilarious installment of "Hi, I'm a Marvel... and I'm a DC", Iron Man and Batman discuss their movies. Might be spoilers for those who've not seen Iron Man or Batman Begins.

And if you're in that category, I... I... *choke* I just don't know you anymore...

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Sprinting along the tundra, attacking with a jeweled meat hammer, cometh Khaosworks! And he gives a spectacular grunt:

"For the love of beatings, I pillage like a river of pure piranha!"

"Ever since J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis created the worlds of Middle Earth and Narnia, it seems like every windbag off the street thinks he can write great, original fantasy, too. The problem is that most of this "great, original fantasy" is actually poor, derivative fantasy. Frankly, we're sick of it, so we've compiled a list of rip-off tip-offs in the form of an exam. We think anybody considering writing a fantasy novel should be required to take this exam first. Answering "yes" to any one question results in failure and means that the prospective novel should be abandoned at once."

Don't necessarily agree with all of its no-nos, but amusing nonetheless.

Seen as a link from Mark Evanier's blog...

I have no idea what this Dutch site is selling, but it's a pretty cool way of drawing attention to it. Warning: this is safe for work, but it is noisy. Once the page loads, wait a couple of seconds and the experience will start on its own.

Not shockware, not a trojan, not a virus. Just... oh, just watch.

William Shakespeare

Come not between the khaosworks and his wrath.

By way of [livejournal.com profile] querldoxwhat if 24 had been produced in 1994?

(it's very well done — they even got actors that look vaguely like Kiefer Sutherland and Sarah Clarke)

I've figured out the answer to the question, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"

"Only if they go into RAM sleep."

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week.
