My wonderful Meg kitty.

Bit by the meme bug

"If you had me consign some twenty-four hours to you and I had to do whatever you wanted me to, what would you do? All posts will be permanently screened because it's a secret. Then re-post this in your LJ- or don't. You might be surprised with the responses you get."

I swapped the wording around to make it not necessarily suggestive. Partly because I'm curious how many people will say something like "Force you to be absolutely quiet".

[Incidentally, my arguably best friend (who I've regrettably lost track of) once said that he'd pay a "certain amount of money" to see me forced to keep quiet for a modest period of time (estimated to be a couple of hours). He never did get his wish.]

Come to think on it, I'm sure someone'll say something charming like "Force you to work on a windows box" or "Write me a quiz program" or "Take my chem final".

Well, here's your chance, people -- no holds barred & no excuses -- don't bore me! ; )

Work? What is this work thing of which you speak?

Some moron with a Ferrari Enzo went racing on PCH in Malibu, crashes into a power pole, and shears it in half. There's three things that annoy me about this story:

1) The moron did it while drunk.
2) The other guy was racing a Mercedes, so it couldn't have been much of a challenge.
3) Why don't I have a car like that? I could actually drive it worth a damn!

The almost certainly ignorant authorities think he might've been going as high as 100 mph. I guarantee you it was faster than that. I'm betting at least 150 to do that sort of damage.

Additional time-wasters:
Microsoft crash on Times Square -- Say kalisphoenix -- I remember you posting one of these before, albeit a blue screen. Was that Times Square as well?
Site of "broken" signs -- This kinda reminds me of Not Fooling Anybody website of silly/bad remodels.
