Would you eat your chums in a blizzard ?

apparently I am a reasonably safe option for overnighting on the slopes : 54%


39%, but that is really just the thought of putting parts of my friends bodies in my mouth

41% - but I think the Sushi question was very misleading "Have you ever eaten Sushi or any other raw meat?" - Sushi is fish, not meat. Therefore I'm giving myself 40% discount.

1%

Sorted.

Now all we need is the "Would you shag your friend in a blizzard" quiz.

Make a vision-guided fireball-throwing catapult out of an ordinary industrial robot

I want one, with rockets.

Re: Cool websites

The Dead Letter Office

Write a letter & post it, or read a letter. Heres todays ..


When you're 13, spend a lot of time outside,
preferably on your bicycle. Make things, even
if they won't work. Blow something up. Launch
something into the air. Discover the photographic
process and use it.

When you're 15 run away from home, at least
once.

Use birth control until you're 40.

Take drugs, but only if you can spell the
clinical name, draw the chemical compound
and know all the side effects and
contraindications. An informed consumer is
a wise (and prepared) consumer. Do a search
on clinical uses of LSD for the year 1965.
Read all the papers submitted to conferences
that year.

Don't waste your 20's. You'll never have that
much energy again. The problem is that you
won't have the money you need. My advice is to
go heavily into debt.

Spend as much time as you can with the people
you love. Even if you don't think you love
them all the time. The problem is that they
will eventually go away and you won't be able
to get that time back.

The scariest things turn out to be the best.
This includes skydiving, marriage, children
and auto racing.

When I was 28 I knew everything. Now I don't
know a damn thing. Ignore everything I wrote.
Follow your own impulses, even if they get you
fired - you'll probably only get one chance to
act on them. But be smart - messing up other
people's lives is a waste of your precious energy.
God exists, and accepts everyone unconditionally.

Qtrax.com is a new and legal music downloading site, launching today. The tracks contain DRM (Digital Rights Mwahhhh) which means you can't burn to CD, but can export to your iPod - for now. Apple don't like it...

They're in the news today already. Seems it's not only Apple who don't like it.

Re: Cool websites

Still reading through this, never knew malls in the USA were so dangerous .

Mall Ninjas.

Lot of Acronyms to do with guns I just don't understand, but it still reads well as the insanity of the posters just shines through. Think Dale Gribble from King of the Hill.

Re: Cool websites

For those still mourning the loss of Pandora to non-US IPs, try musicovery

The interface is interesting and I and found that the songs in both the classics and discovery modes were pretty vaired and generally matched the mood diagram quite well. I didn't use the dance interface but it also looks like it has some potential.

No signup is required but with a free account it remembers which songs you like/don't like.

You can also pay and get better sound quality as well as be able to choose your favourite songs on demand. (I don't pay)
