  • Hard News: Public Address: Technical Profile,

    I see I'll have to read PA from my FreeBSD box more often if I'm to beat your Solaris (SunOS) user. Consider this a challenge, unnamed unix user!

  • Field Theory: Settle a bet,

    Also from Grizzly Man:
    "I believe the common character of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility, and murder."

    I admit I'm looking these up for accuracy, but I did remember them, honest.

    "Oh my gosh! The bear, Miss Chocolate, has left me her poop! It's her crap! It was just in her butt and it's still warm! This is a gift from Miss Chocolate!"
    - Timothy Treadwell, Grizzly Man

    Re. TV quotes, "Money be green!" from The Wire, s.1 ep.1 is surprisingly useful.

  • Field Theory: Settle a bet,

    Even the Lord of the Rings trilogy didn't have a decent quote.

    "...And my axe!" doesn't do it for you?

    I remember seeing Malcolm McNeil (by no means a tall man) perform Short People standing on a chair.

  • Hard News: Dude, what just happened?,

    Can you prove that eating a sandwich is a victimless crime?

    Yes: eating a sandwich isn't a crime.

    (haha, Mr smartypants!)

    Umm, if it's not a crime, it can't be a victimless crime. Own goal :-)

  • Hard News: The Internet is for ... Privacy?,

    Is this the right time to mention Panopticlick's browser uniqueness test?

    Damn:

    Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 812,895 tested so far.

    And this is Firefox on Ubuntu, which is the most common browser/OS combination I use...

    EDIT: I lie - from now on I'm browsing exclusively on my iPod Touch.

  • Up Front: Boobs!,

    I always confuse "brazen" with "brazing", and get odd visions of a scantily-clad woman operating a welding torch.

    To continue the threadjack, Braze-on hussy?

  • Up Front: Boobs!,

    Hellfire, are cargo shorts a daft 90s throwback thing? I'm wearing a pair right now!

    I keep a pair to wear with my old Radiohead t-shirt at retro parties.
