You learn something new every day : LUSENET : I Wasn't Built to Get Up at this Time : One Thread

So what *did* you learn today?

-- Tim (, October 26, 2000


That it is possible to short out a computer by plugging something into your sound card.

That it is not wise to nearly cause a wreck on the way to the License Bureau.

That when Edgar Allan Poe was 26 he married a 12 year old girl.

Money can't buy forgiveness, but Mountain Blue Powerade can.

That today (10/26) begins the festival of Diwali.

Though I still have no idea what the hell a "goat panel" is....

-- Lauren (, October 26, 2000.

That I am still desperately in love with the person I was in love with five months ago and the thought of him being depressed and not telling me why is making me want to strangle myself with my mouse cord.

-- Ras (, October 26, 2000.

It's only 10.41am, and I haven't had any lectures yet. Not that I usually learn anything in those. Anyway, let's see:

That there's a new Jim Carrey film coming out at Christmas. I know everyone else has probably known this for years, but I'm living without TV.

That Bryn owns a sleeping bag, an inflatable pillow and an inflatable mattress. (Regardless of this, he offered Louise the chance to share the bed. She said no, which was good because I did too.) (Never mind, don't ask.)

That there is a bin in Bryn's bathroom.

That I either don't have any post or that someone has hidden it.

That the shower in corridor N3E works again, and well at that.

That, six days after the flood, my room still really smells.

That Tim has finally acknowledged that "joing" is not a word. (I have similar doubts about "con(squiggle)a", but that's another thread.)

-- Zed (, October 27, 2000.

What I'd really like to learn is what is The Bryn. Where did he come from? What does he do? What colour underpants does he wear?

-- Tim (, October 27, 2000.

How the f***p (fleep) did you respond to this so quickly? Have you nothing to do but spend all day on the Internet, young Tim?

Anyway. He comes from Sittingbourne, Kent. He does . . . um . . . me? No, Biology, that's right. And red, black or green, depending on his mood.

Lecture time!

-- Zed (, October 27, 2000.

How the *fleep* did you resond to THAT so quickly. Do you have nothing better to do than spend all day on the internet.


This amuses me too much...

How about a new cateogory, 'Topics involving Zed's not very subtly hinted at sex life'.

-- Tim (, October 27, 2000.

While I was waiting for greenspun to do its funchie stuff with my last message, I wrote an e-mail or went surfing in another window or something. When I looked back at the thread, your addition was present.

Oi, don't knock Bryn. He's armed and dangerous. As well as his impressive collection of weaponry as described on my updates page, he owns a helmet and two sets of chain mail. (Cue dodgy jokes. "When I get bored, I polish my helmet" etc.)

Much as I would like a whole category devoted to myself, I think "Threads in which we declare how wonderful Zed is" would be better. How about it?
