If @QandA broadcast from @OrkneyLibrary I might take them seriously. But Geelong? Geelong doesn’t even have bubblers.

@jeremysear But in re being on that TV show, I don’t understand why anyone would demean themselves like that. It’s a no-win arsehatfest.

TumblrTXT I just kind of grew up a little more, got a little life experience, heard some more words, and eventually determined that I am a dragon.

@KarlskiB A transcontinental plague. How excellent*.

via Plume for Android in reply to KarlskiB

People actually watch QandA, that’s so cute.

Judging by the coughing and the sore throat, Sydney has already given me the plague. Sydney is such a bullshit city.

PCI DSS only exists because it has to exist.

via Plume for Android

Now I’m thinking about a new reality TV series, “Sex Lives of the Middle Managers”. It has failure written all over it.

via Plume for Android

Look, PCI DSS is basically a sex toy without the sex or the toy. But I suppose it keeps middle management happy.

via Plume for Android

So should I visualise @swearyanthony masturbating over PCI DSS v3 standards documentation? Should you? Yes, I think you should.

@timb07 Cool, thanks, I’ll look it up. Obviously we both trawled Freesound for theme music.
