I Want To Print This Out On Cards And Keep It With Me When I’m In The Pub

This resonates with me or at least it resonates with a past me. I used to spend a lot of time in bars either reading or just taking in the ambiance. I didn’t necessarily go there for any social interaction just to people watch and to be around people.

And yet people have this insistence on singling out people who are alone and trying to encroach on the sanctity of their solitude, I wouldn’t mind but the people who have the balls to do this are normally either drunk out their skulls or really extroverted people, I don’t drink and I don’t get on well with extroverts…

One guy had the audacity to, having seen what I was reading, ask me what I thought about the death of one of the characters… I hadn’t gotten that far in the book, I could have murdered him.

I’d probably alter the text on the card to remove the romantic implications, I am not big headed enough to think that people come up to me to “Pick me up” but the general sentiment of “I’m alone because I want to be alone not because I have no friends.” is one that I wish I could pass onto people in such a succinct manner.

I Can’t Help But See It…

This cropped up on a friend’s Facebook wall because they had gained a badge on Fitocracy a social network for fitness buffs.

I can’t help but see that as the beginnings of a Goatse…

I’ve Joined Fitocracy  myself, but at the moment I have 0 points because their sign up form is retarded and created two accounts for me one for the login that I provided and another when I tried to connect it to Facebook to import my contacts…

That’s why I’ve not got any points, not because I’ve not been doing any exercise… Honest…

Shit Just Got Real!

I can’t resist a good maths joke…

Gah! The image seems to have disappeared for this post… and I can’t find the source.

FWIW the image was the square root of “i” squared. I’ll see if I can dig it up.

Update: This design on Redbubble is pretty much the same concept…

UPDATE:  Not that anyone has been following this but I’ve found the image. I saved it to my iPad and it popped up in Dropbox’s camera uploads when I plugged my iPad in! Woo! Still no idea where I found the image though.

It’s always irked me that when the whole world is in peril really powerful wizards have a tendency to send completely inexperienced youths out to do their dirty work while they sit in their castles drinking apple schnapps (That’s what wizards drink trust me).
