Playing video games on Xbox Live is all well and good. Arguing with your mom about chocolate milk? Sometimes OK. But if you're going to do both, remember to turn off your headset, lest you become an internet meme.

FLOMATON, Ala. -- Edmond Knowles started out saving pennies in a 5-gallon can. Thirty-eight years later, he was storing them in four 55-gallon drums and three 20-gallon drums - nearly 1.4 million in all. Knowles, who runs a gas station, cashed them in Wednesday, pocketing $13,804.59 after they were counted at a bank. "It's just something that happened," he said. "I started so long ago that I don't even remember why." He got some help along the way from customers at Ed's Service Station. "Customers would come by and say: 'Ed, throw these in your drum,'" he said. Coinstar Inc., a company that maintains coin-counting machines in banks and supermarkets, said Knowles' 1,380,459 pennies breaks the record of 1,048,013 held by Eugene J. Sukie of Barberton, Ohio.

Your strange grandfather is a great source of female attractiveness. Only because it makes for some interesting entertainment. You'll be telling stories. Like how grandpa got drunk once, and decided to make love to the right sub-woofer of your stereo.
Also, check out the freakish arms on the guy in number six.

i was drunk googling trying to find that insane site Mani found years ago with the terrifying dog outfits.
When drunk, please search the Minimalist Weblog (yes, I'm bracing for a cockpunch) for the object of your desire.
In this case, it would have taken you to a dead link, but they did leave a forwarding address. It's not quite how I remember it, but you know what they say: you can't step into the same river twice.

So anyway, the Bangles are being driven down to Liverpool by Leonard Nimoy and you wouldn't believe this, but when he clicks on the radio it's a Bangles song! One of the Bangles who is not the hot one starts to sing the song, and Spock ignores this because he and Susanna Hoffs are giving each other the come hither. She's not so good at it because the director told her to only look out of the corners of her eyes, which everyone thought was unbearably sexy in Walk Like an Egyptian. However, this time around, she's sporting an unfortunate poodle haircut. Spock's sexual frustration causes him to turn off the crap song, but that situation is quickly rectified by a different Bangle who is not the hot one. They arrive at their destination, a dank tunnel with spinny purple and red lights, and rock out. Their instruments are all there, excepting the drummer's cymbals.

I've read only 17. I've started some others (Gravity's Rainbow, Sound And The Fury, Naked Lunch, White Teeth), prolly own over half, have had one on my bedside table for the last year (Atonement), and my bookclub is reading another next (Under The Net).
Would it be considered a waste of time to have read one more than once (Infinite Jest)?

Sweet, sweet jesus.
"On Friday night I hooked up a PS2 controller to a sturdy wooden chair with some string so it is immobile. I then taped the left analog stick in the forward direction. Then I put an oscilating fan in front of the controler-chair setup. To the fan, I attached a string with a loop on the end of it. I put this loop around the other analog controller so that when the fan oscilates, it pulls the stick in different directions.
The purpose of this setup is to collect one million roses in We Love Katamari."
"When I left for work today it was still on, rolling away, and had collected around 430,000 roses so far."

The following are the first and last few sentences of a message that just arrived in my own personal inbox:
Just a reminder, that the deadline for registration for the Putnam exam is tomorrow. If you haven't heard about Putnam before, we apologize for the extremely late notice... All you have to do to register is send Freida Bloggs your full name, and if you want sex (there's a special award for women).
Columbia Math Club
I wonder what the English Club (or, for that matter, the College Republicans) would have to say about this.
I can think of at least one Triumph quote to describe the "special award for women."
Thus, I am a jerk. Q.E.D.
(For what it's worth, I "opted in" to this particular list.)

I just received a bunch of these spam comments at my other blog (which I won't link because I'm tired of being punched in the cock). I removed the links from the comment, but left the shoddy grammar:
Your blog is great If your a writer and print alot, I'm sure you'd be interested in inkjet media inkjet cartridge inkjet media
My question: Why bother with Your blog is great in what is obviously a spam? Bullshitting on the web is basically free, so, if you're going to, why not bring the dumptruck?
P.S. It would seem that the word verification for blogger comments has been compromised.

I know not everyone is using all the features of iTunes, namely podcasting and its ability to play video content. BUT, if you do have iTunes > 4.9 hit this link and subscribe. Its kind of cool. Its a video postcast. Actually, its a Quicktime TVR spherical view of cool places filmed across the globe (like cool shots of the Parthenon, etc...). All the downloads are rather large (like around 11 MB) but its free. I like it, you may not.

I've had a few people comment recently that Anchorbutt seems to be very active, and it looks like it's going to stick around. In light of this new, optimistic outlook, I figured it might be time to think about Anchorbutt 2.0. Here are the thoughts I have had, in order from least work to the most.
1. Leave it alone. It's not worth any effort.
2. Register the domain name anchorbutt.com and have blogger publish the blog to that web site. Everything will remain as it is now, except that you'd load www.anchorbutt.com to view the blog. (Still update it from blogger.com.).
3. Foresake anchorbutt and start a new blogger blog with a less embarassing name.
4. Combination of 2 and 3: register a name besides anchorbutt.com to publish the blog to.
5. Register some domain name and throw out blogger altogether. Install some content management system and become uber-cool.
To help decide what to do, I've created a poll! Everyone loves polls, right? But also post comments with other suggestions, alternate names, content managements systems we could use, and whatever else you think of.
Speak up people!
