Negative
Posted by YepYep 12 years ago
So, I came to the filter this morning to find that my xp total for the day was -245. I also noticed that DV8 2XL (remember him?) had lost 290 points.  
 
Funny thing is, there are really only two suspects, since only two people (at the time I noticed this) had enough xp for the day to accomplish the aforementioned screw job. One of them is an active user--it is difficult to imagine him being a suspect--and the other has not been active for quite some time.  
 
I take pride in being a top-rated user. This asshole took it upon himself to make sure that he bumped me off the top of that list; it's a shame that one guy can do that. Alas, I suppose everyone has the right to filter as they see fit.  
 
I only wish that I'd arrived sooner, so I could "out" the bastard with 100% certainty.
Ever notice?

How a lot of people who call other people "mindless" or "extremists" tend to be mindless extremists themselves?

Jeep
Posted by YepYep 12 years ago
History of the word "Jeep," courtesy of wikipedia:  
 
The origin of the name "Jeep" is somewhat a mystery. Popular notion has it that the vehicle designation "GP" (for "General Purpose") was phonetically slurred in pronunciation, eventually becoming "Jeep." R. Lee Ermey, on his television series Mail Call, has stated that the vehicle was designed for specific duties and was never referred to as "General Purpose," and that the name may have been derived from Ford's nomenclature referring to the vehicle as GP (G for government-use, and P to designate its wheelbase size). However, many (including Ermey) claim that the more likely origin is a reference to a character from the Thimble Theater (Popeye) comic strip known as Eugene the Jeep. The character could walk through walls and ceilings, climb trees, fly, and just about go anywhere it wanted, and it is thought that soldiers at the time were so impressed with the new vehicle's versatility that they informally named it after the character.

Theme Days
Posted by YepYep 12 years ago
It is my intention for this journal to serve as a one-stop repository for all theme day-related links at the 'filter. As you'll see, some have been immensely successful, while others, well, you get the idea.  
 
I have only begun with the following:  
 
[Mail theme day]  
[former Republican president theme day]  
[Hermit theme day]  
[Soviet Russia Theme] *This theme was never officially declared, but it's a beauty.  
[Worm Week]  
[Jones B-day theme]  
[Gardening theme day}  
[glitch is on crack theme day]  
[Lag's Birthday Theme]  
[screw morals theme day]  
[Theme day: Things that should be shoved up Carrot Top's rectum]  
[theme day: stripes]  
[theme day: chick rockers]  
 
I will continue to add to this list as I search the archives.

I Remember
Posted by YepYep 12 years ago
I remember it well, the first time that I saw  
Your head round the door  
Cause mine stopped working  
I remember it well, there was wet in your hair  
I was stood in the stair  
And time stopped moving  
 
Want you here tonight, want you here  
Cause I can't believe what I found  
Want you here tonight, want you here  
Nothing is taking me down, down, down  
 
I remember it well, taxied out of a storm  
To watch you perform  
And my ships were sailing  
I remember it well, I was stood in your line  
And your mouth, your mouth, your mind  
 
Want you here tonight, want you here  
Cause I can't believe what I found  
Want you here tonight, want you here  
Nothing is taking me down, down, down  
'Cept you my love  
'Cept you, my love  
 
Come all ye lost  
Dive into moss  
An I hope, that my sanity covers the cost  
To remove, the stain of my love  
Paper maché  
 
Oooh, Come all ye reborn  
Blow off my horn  
I'm driving real hard  
This is love this is porn  
God would forgive me  
But I, I whip myself -- scorn, scorn  
 
An I wanna hear what you have to say about me  
Hear if you're gonna live without me  
I wanna hear what you want  
I remember december  
 
An I wanna hear what you have to say about me  
Hear if you're gonna live without me  
I wanna hear what you want  
What the hell do you want?

New toy.
Posted by YepYep 12 years ago
Well, having not updated my technology for the better part of the past five years or so, I added an iPod Shuffle to my personal inventory.  
 
I have to say: I love it. I got the 512 MB model, which is more than enough for me.  
 
I also got the following accessories:  
 
 
 
A fancy little rubbery case to protect this tiny thing during the inevitable droppings.  
 
 
 
A splitter to share the music with the lady on this weekend's trip.

Putting down a book.
Posted by YepYep 13 years ago
For the first time, I did not finish a book I started. I don't know why, but I always think a bad book will get better...  
 
Consider this: To help them know when to give up, many professional readers apply the 50-page rule. If the book hasn’t grabbed them by then, they give it the heave-ho. Nancy Pearl, the librarian and author of Book Lust, reports that some people take this rule further and subtract a page for every year of age over 50. This way a 75-year old would give a book only 25 pages to prove itself. As readers mature they become quicker and surer judges of what they like.  
 
Anyone ever have trouble giving up on a book?
Is this funny?

I think it's funny to have this story/headline appear on a "you must have a subscription" page: See it.
