@stinginthetail @SnarkyPlatypus Unsurprisingly, I’m also up at the “extremely progressive” end. But yes, I am not an American. ;)

“Interactive Quiz: How Progressive Are You?” http://bit.ly/TD4x It’s US-centric, so all US issues, but interesting nonetheless.

@shanewilliamson Thanks for the reminder re Mobile Monday Sydney http://momosyd.com but I think I’ll stay close to home tonight.

Mon plan: Desk-bound planning & “paperwork” for most of the day, plus a few minor webby things; evening undecided.

@duncanriley Yes, by all reports it IS rather ominous. I smirk.

The Merging has begun its Second Phase. It is more disturbing than the first.

@facibus I take solace in the fact that a friend who does my garden has left his machete here. That may well prove useful.

Mis-named product! http://is.gd/nsC7 Hat-tip @TheBloggess, who says “Child predators are nothing to laugh at. Mostly.”

@facibus All hail Eris! Not ALL is well, but enough so there’s little incentive to slaughter everyone in cold blood. Yourself?

@SnarkyPlatypus Merci. Dans le passé, j’ai trouvé un schéma qui aide toujours quand on est de discuter de questions du sphincter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Zombie_Plan Grass Mud Horse was a temporary avatar. The Ranting Seagull had been used for a couple of months before that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Zombie_Plan

@SnarkyPlatypus Voulez-vous dire comme un sphincter de l’amour?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis sûr qu’il ya une explication de la raison pour laquelle ce qui se passe. Qui peut nous blâmer?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@penbo Good morning, Mr Penberthy. This should raise the tone substantially, eh?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis sûr qu’il ya une explication acceptable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. อุบัติ. The seagull returns.

@Pollytics Alas, yes, here are flat-earthers of all stripes these days/ Personally, I’m quite a fan of rational thought.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

@jeffpovey It’s not about Ruzyne, it’s just a bit of silliness about a Kafkaesque airport. Odd that you’d critique without watching. ;)

“San Francisco Historians Condemn 1906 Earthquake Deniers” http://is.gd/m82Y Explanation for the hard-of-thinking at http://is.gd/qQih

@jeffpovey I think you may be missing the The Onion video is satire? About a Kafka-esque experience?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffpovey

@andrewdotnich Have you consulted the list of Internet slang abbreviations at Wiktionary? http://is.gd/1dJu

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@andrewdotnich I’ll blog that tomorrow and issue a challenge more widely, I think. It’s hitting my end-of-brain hour.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

RT @andrewdotnich: First draft: “hai - omg dun bbq meh nao wtf? lol wut noe wai srs? fag” [Oh OK, so you’re serious. That’s excellent!]

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong But it’s an appallingly AMERICAN Thai cooking show, where they have the EXPLAIN oyster sauce!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

RT @andrewdotnich: I wonder what the longest coherent string of 3-letter net-related words one could generate is… [Your challenge is set!]

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Dim Geefay, if making Thai stirfry, do NOT substitute wine with tequila, even if you ARE Thai and like margaritas. http://is.gd/qPP2

I think I might give up writing and just copy and paste YouTube comments into my scripts.

via Twitter Web Client

@seancarmody The farting cat videos are just cats with someone adding fake fart noises. FAIL. At least the narcoleptic dog is real.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@SnarkyPlatypus Which is funnier? A narcoleptic dog or a farting cat?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @afficionados_hh: Hmm I think the end of LOST is going to be that the island is a metaphor for Twitter in some way.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh! Thanks for the reminder. Goat vs Peacock was the highlight the other week, I thought!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Finding “interesting” and “useful” videos for next week’s “Stilgherrian Live”. Ahem.

@carloseltaco How many heads on spikes? The answer to that question is, as always, “Never enough!”

Now here’s a cheery 3-minute film. http://is.gd/pUxa Someone had too much time on their hands.

@Snipergirl Here’s an article from the UK about kids not being allowed to play. http://is.gd/qOXA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Snipergirl

Looking at these old photos of kids playing in New York, realising that today they’d be “protected” from the “risk”. Sad. http://is.gd/qOSs

We’re talking cocoa bread with chocolate pellets. It’s just wrong. @ApostrophePong is warming some up now and… just yuk.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus So, for Lent I have to give up cocaine and Delta Goodram, but not chocolate? Hmmm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

1. That was meant to be “WTF”, not Western Flower Thrips. http://bit.ly/3w3IPA 2. No-one else notices a conflict with Lent and chocolate?

via Twitter Web Client

CHOCOLATE Hot Cross Buns? WFT?

@Nickhodge Oi! My life is quite average and highly predictable. Despite unreliable Thai grocers.

Wandering with @ApostrophePong to Enmore Rd then King St then lunch then errands and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

@sylmobile Nah, ta, but that’s the same one @danupoyner linked to. It was a WORLD scale, not US. Doesn’t matter that much. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sylmobile

@danupoyner No that “Political Compass” analysis http://bit.ly/j6eC http://bit.ly/j6eC isn’t the one I’m after, but still useful.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m trying to find an article which pointed out that on a WORLD scale, both Obama and McCain are still very much up the right-hand end.

via Twitter Web Client

I still think a 1-dimensional scale of political beliefs is next to useless, ‘cos it projects a myriad of issues onto existing polarities.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @MattPovey: Quick comment re the photographers. Part of what you’re seeing are all the amateurs with their new SLRs. Check Flickr for G20

via Twitter Web Client

@flashman It’s not about not “allowed” to use PNGs on a mobile site, more that some mobile browsers won’t render them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to flashman

@ApostrophePong I decided that the calm demeanour of was… misleading. The seagull seems more appropriate.
