Why is it that in Canberra that if there is ANYTHING at all on the side of the road that traffic in a 100km/h zone will slow to less than 50km/h..Anything, I mean anything, a hot air baloon, an empty parked car, a person, a sign, a frog..anything at all will turn Canberra drivers into rubbernecking retards and destroy all traffic flow, WHY GOD WHY?!
Oh hey, while I’m complaining about Canberra drivers, hey dimwit, the space I leave in front of my car is FOR MY OWN SAFETY, it is not a invitation for you to change lanes, especially since you’re not actually turning off for another 10km, idiot.
I grabbed this from the Somethingawful forums in a thread about game related wallpaper and since I liked it so much I made it my new wallaper, I decided to share it. Enjoy!
Tip #1, how not to parent: This is just mean!
Also, and unrelated, we went to the multicultural food festival thingy on the weekend and had Danish Donuts among other things (try googling for a recipe, it’s not as easy as you’d think because Danish and Donuts are two types of food, that’s confusing for poor google – I did find a Danish Donut Shop. Danish Donuts are not to be confused with Aebleskiver although to my untrained eye they look similar.
Anyway, they were the best donuts I’ve ever had, more like fried dough with fruit bits in it, yummo..apparently there was a shop in Canberra where you could buy them but I went by there yesterday and it was closed, permanently it seems. More evidence that god hates me (or just wants me to lose weight, thanks god!)
Check your reaction times by shooting sheep with tranqulizers, my best reaction was .123 and average .1838 meaning I’m a Rocketing Rabbbit..all that twitch gaming helps I suppose.
EDIT: I’m in the process of moving hosts, so the site may be down for a few minutes, hours, days or weeks depending on how smoothly it goes.
Credit goes to Wil Wheaton (and Boing Boing before him) for these links, essentually Tilt-Shift photography is a crazy photography technique that makes real life scenes look like tiny 3D models, some of these are truly amazing looking.
This guy does a pretty good job, but this one (site is in Japanese but a the pictures aren’t, haw haw! – link apparently broken) is just too cool.
The first post on this newly hosted site was on 15 January 2002, but I missed that date by 2 weeks, so 4 years ago today will have to do.
Back when I switched to the new host it was supposed to be temporary so I ended up paying monthly rather than quarterly or yearly..4 years later I’m still paying monthly…this host (www.winsave.com) hasn’t been the most reliable and their support sucks, but they’re cheap..time to switch to a better host though, and www.quadrahosting.com.au looks like the goods, as soon as I can figure out how to wrestle the domain away from winsave’s control.
Speaking of which (speaking of what you ask?) the site is probably due for a redesign some time, some of the links to the left are either boring or no longer relevant, who cares about my dvd wishlist anyway? … I’ll add it to my to-do list. (maybe the site needs a to-do list?!)
