RT @expectproblems: “Care Factor” sounds like an aftershave or something. [Oh, so only 250ml then.]

via Janetter for Mac

Does the @NSWSES have a helicopter that can deliver about three litres of Care Factor to the eucalypt forest near Wentworth Falls?

RT @jeamland: OH: “Have you seen Samsung’s iPad?” “Yeah, it’s the best!”

MT @expectproblems: @rickygervais was a bit much. [There, I fixed it.]

@ryanbooker I did and do. But I was exercising my inalienable right to quote you out of context to support my argument.

RT @joshgnosis: Hey kids, Telstra wants to show you how to use QR codes to buy tickets to see Shannon Noll. bit.ly/XnawTQ

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, enough of spoiled, impatient TV-watchers. I’ll now go nail a few spikes into my face and drown myself in the dam.

via Janetter for Mac

@RiotInIKEA I’m talking about the “vital need” to see some TV show so quickly, and how pathetic that looks to me that this drives people so.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RiotInIKEA

@RiotInIKEA Yeah, talk about grasping the complete wrong end of the stick. Bonus points for “some huge multinational” as bogeyman. Arsehat.

It’s like this one from @ryanbooker: “Yes piracy is wrong. So what?” twitter.com/ryanbooker/sta… So that’s where we’re at, eh? [nods] Lovely.

via Janetter for Mac

@comradestev3 “Cryfest”? On this isn’t sadness. This is disgust. Disgust at the raw entitled selfishness of it all.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevestevest3v3

@comradestev3 Yeah that must be fuckin’ terrible. I don’t know how you maintain the will to live. Worse than cancer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevestevest3v3

In that tweet just before, it should be “Game”, singular.

via Janetter for Mac

Laughing at the “I’ll do it illegally until legal is easy enough” so-called “justifications”. Convenience versus ethics moral compass win!

REALITY CHECK: YOUR LIFE WILL NOT END IF YOU DON’T SEE A TV SHOW UNTIL A DAY, A WEEK, A MONTH, A FUCKING DECADE AFTER ITS RELEASE.

via Janetter for Mac

@bastardsheep @Elmo_Keep You’re right, I really need Nazi Fucking Death Squads to get the point home to these self-indulgent cunts.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bastardsheep

Christ, if having to wait to watch a TV show, entertainment FFS, is such an imposition then you really do need to take a look at yourself!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bastardsheep: @stilgherrian @Elmo_Keep Uhh … not everyone can actually get foxtel. [Diddums! Not everyone has clean drinking water.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @PointZeroOne: @stilgherrian @Elmo_Keep what if you don’t have foxtel? {Watch something else, you spoiled, impatient cunts!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Elmo_Keep: People seriously couldn’t wait TWO HOURS for Game of Thrones to air on Foxtel? Two hours, you entitled babies.

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong You should be watching YouTube’s nomination-reading ceremony. youtube.com/watch?feature=…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

It’s actually very good.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, it’s good to see that YouTube is still reading out nominations. youtube.com/watch?feature=…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @cafedave: is it bad that I’m now humming the theme song? [Yes. Obviously. What is wrong with you?]

via Janetter for Mac

It’s one of those word puzzles, @Idealaw @absalomedia. Changing one letter at a time, turn “cybers” into “herpes”.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yes, someone has helpfully put all of Sweet and Sour on YouTube. Our culture is saved!

via Janetter for Mac

That said, @SnarkyPlatypus, we could do with a Return to Sweet & Sour.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: How many series of an E Street revival could that $21.6 mil fund? [Nowhere near enough.]

via Janetter for Mac

Gillard’s just given $21.6M to the film “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. So glad we’re supporting Australian creations.

@TomDaveyAus That’s my understanding about doctors too.

RT @michaelneale: @stilgherrian @R_Chirgwin with anatomically correct dolls? [“Please show us where Anonymous touched your privacy…”]

via Janetter for Mac

Explaining to @R_Chirgwin what the “cloud” is.

via Janetter for Mac

@TomDaveyAus You’re over-thinking it. Try this: “Should someone use their skills to help in an emergency if no-one else can?” Clearer?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TomDaveyAus

RT @PointZeroOne: yesterday wasn’t the 31st…. [This detail is irrelevant to the narrative. Stop trying to stroganoff me, oppressor!]

via Janetter for Mac

Yesterday, 31 March, was World Backup Day. So if you backed up your data yesterday, you’re good for another year.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @expectproblems: Change your avatar to an equals sign over red first, though. [Which means what? “No through traffic permitted”?]

via Janetter for Mac

No. I’d be OK with that, given that there’s still newspaper ledes to go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and fucking on about.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I’ll make a joke about rape. That’ll cheer everyone up.

I think I’ll spend the rest of the day sitting in a dark room muttering “Stroganoff. Stroganoff. Stroganoff. Stroganoff. Stroganoff…”

@leoniedoyle @paulcarr It’s a “social media story now? Please kill me. @nytimes was spineless, whatever the route taken by the pitchforkers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leoniedoyle

Story filed for @technologyspec. The day’s sense of urgency subsides.

@prestontowers @greenat17 One school is one demographic, and usage spreads by social connections, so you can get wide variations.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@prestontowers @greenat17 Sure, gender-based differences (and others) run right through these tool choices. Now I’m curious.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to prestontowers

@greenat17 @prestontowers Is that a feelpinion or have you seen some stats somewhere? (Polite question, not a challenge.)

CHRIST DID NOT DIE ON THE CROSS AND GIVE US A LONG WEEKEND SO YOU COULD ALL BE SUCH FUCKTARDS ON THE INTERNET. @paulcarr OK, finished now.

via Janetter for Mac

Now there’s a storm of outrage from editors who disagree with @paulcarr, as if all editors are meant to think and write the same. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

Thing is, critics of @nytimes, sometimes to make a point you DON’T write in the bland, obvious way the proles imagine. @paulcarr

via Janetter for Mac

FFS, the school of feral goldfish du jour is no reason to overturn a perfectly good editorial decision. @paulcarr @nytimes

TumblrTXT I think the reason why so few ladies approach me is because I’m so fucking awesome, that I intimidate them.
