Daily Musings 3/7

Posted by goldwriting on March 7, 2008

1 – If you think you can come up with a limerick better than “There once was a man from Nantucket…”, take your rhyming skills over to this online listing of voted on limericks. [thanks, Erin]

2 – I’m honestly frightened if this is what they are doing all day over in Russia. We are all doomed. [via Pandachute]

3 – Only a few more of these Touhou videos exist, so enjoy them slowly, like a nice tasty plate of chocolate chip cookie dough.

4 – Don’t call it a comeback! It’s official, the entire main cast of The Fast and the Furious is back for the fourth installment of the speed racing franchise. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were the first to sign back on, but quietly Jordanna Brewster attached herself to the project and now they have announced the triumphant return of Michelle Rodriguez, after her stint in the poke for drunk driving and various other offenses. My Friday just officially became AWESOME! [via FilmDrunk]

5 – As you all know I am on the Obamamania train, but I will say here and now that if this kid was running for President, I would vote for him in a heartbeat. This took major courage to do in front of his entire congregation and I only wish I had thought of it myself during that all-too-built-up ceremony. Why do people seem to get stupider as they get older? [via CollegeHumor]

6 – Last month I had a link in my Charity of the Month section to Autism Speaks, a wonderful charity that donates time, money and services to the growing number of people with this condition. One of the main issues for people who have the more intense forms of Autism is their lack of coherent communication with the outside world. Now, as shown in this news report from the UK, the internet has once again placed itself as a link between one group looking to be properly understood and the rest of the world. [via William Gibson]

7 – If you have about ten minutes, you can be led down on of the most hilarious trails of gun-toting fantasy to be found online. Please take a moment and learn the trials and tribulations of the Mall Ninja!

8 – Here’s the newest Iron Man poster. Is it just me or does Jeff Bridges look like really pissed off version of Patrick Stewart?

9 – Can someone please draw up a prescription for cartoon Prozac and send it to Jon Arbuckle c/o Garfield Minus Garfield. Thanks, I would feel much better about his personal safety.

10 – I think a bill should be passed requiring every customer service rep or cold calling operator to have a chart plastered over there phone detailing the difference in time zones. This measure will hopefully curb the prevalence of idiots who forget that even though they are at work at 9:45am in Washington DC, the person they are trying to reach in Los Angeles is still softly in bed at 6:45am, enjoying the last fleeting moments of a dream where he was going to go free climbing outside a broken down dorm building. Grrrr…(yes, you are right in thinking this actually happened to me this morning).
