Hey.

Hey.

You.

You.

I don't like your girlfriend.

Roscoe said...

... I was singing the theme to One Piece earlier...

only I replaced all the syllables w/ pork and or bbq related words.

Roscoe said...

Responding to the end of the last chat thread...

Man, the State WAS awesome.. but.. the new release.. I am to understand that not all the music rights were cleared? so.. some sketches.. are bollocksed?

_J_ said...

Bombay Sapphire makes truth come out of my pores.

Truth and David Bowie.

perhaps a doctor needs to inspect this.

Mike Lewis said...

re: MTV did not get all of the music back. It does not take away from the comedy itself

Mike Lewis said...

Guitar hero? Your doing it wrong.

_J_ said...

Oh that is fucking stupid.

Mike Lewis said...

to not have DLC work between games is a big "fuck you" to everyone.

_J_ said...

I just won the WoW fishing tournament!

Oh boy.

Mike Lewis said...

@jay - thats sad

Caleb said...

Is there really money being made by our advertisements?

Because I could write us a check for $100 to not have them anymore.

_J_ said...

If they are annoying and needless we can remove them quite easily.

I dunno. Mikey is the one who knows how to check on how much phat loots we are raking in through advertising.

Mike Lewis said...

we've made $5 from two clicks...

_J_ said...

Holy shit. That's like...ZOMG!

That's a bag of peppermints from two clicks. Imagine how many peppermints we could get from 30,000 clicks!

kylebrown said...

You sir are correct. Now we just need interesting content, such that we can get enough daily visitors to click our ads 30,000 times.

Roscoe said...

WOAAAAAAH, there Kyle.

don't put the cart before the horse.

I for one would be MUCH more likely to click on things more often, if it's the alternative to creating interesting content.

Just playing to my strengths and all.

Mike Lewis said...

xkcd, yes.

Roscoe said...

Did anyone tell Caleb to print out today's XKCD? If not, someone should.

I'm not saying I'm going to. I'm just saying someone should.

Caleb said...

2 clicks = $5? Doesn't that mean we need to write vb script that navigates through the ads and back to EOiaS on a loop and run it while we sleep?

And another one to copy/paste content from online articles to make new posts, so that we get new ads to click through to?

And another which uses a small portion of the funds which adsense pays us to make purchases to legitimize our browsing?

And another which hawks our purchases on ebay to recoup their costs?

One more to take do some short-selling over at Scottrade?

Caleb said...

I hadn't gotten around to reading xkcd today. That's a pretty good one, but I'm afraid of insulting the stupid people who ask me questions.

Caleb said...

I just checked. We have 350 labels.

Roscoe said...

..... Caleb just puzzled out the kernal of what is to become Skynet.

Only problem... is I'm fairly certain it's allready been started. Elsewhere. We'd at best be creating the subpar knock off that's sure to be in T2ON.... only w/ the neat font that makes the 2 look vaguely R-ish.

Caleb, since you use firefox, you can download an add on called Adblock Plus that will make that stop. I don't even really know what you're talking about, because I have it and there are no ads on the blog for me. It rocks hardcore. You can feel free to mail me the hundred dollars. :-P

Mike Lewis said...

google would figure out we are using a script and i would get my account suspected. That would be bad.

we've only been running the ads for three weeks. I am going to let it run for another week and see what happens.

Caleb said...

Works fine by me. I was just curious.

Roscoe said...

Hear that, Mikey? Christina is taking money out of YOUR pocket.

I, obviously, am offended on your behalf.

That's MY job, dammnit. By the way.. can you drive me to Fort Wayne? I swear I'll pay you back.

Mike Lewis said...

who is Christina?

_J_ said...

A friend of both Young House and small mammals. You met her at that Guster concert and then, apparently, promptly forgot.

Roscoe said...

... Is Mikey in favor of small mammals?

I remain unconvinced.

Caleb said...

Huuuume!!!

Roscoe said...

I contend Hume might well be animatronic.

Ain't no such thing as a climbin' dog.

_J_ said...

This evening i killed a bug. Usually I just leave bugs to their own devices. As far as I can tell no soul left the bug. It just stopped moving.

So, if we're like bugs, and eventually we stop moving, what the hell are we doing?

Roscoe said...

Answering the call of Captain Falcon?

_J_ said...

Getting undergrads to talk is akin to getting something impossible to happen.

Though, i did learn that if one says something contentious enough one will piss off the fundy in the class, and then words are said.

Caleb said...

*JOY*

_J_ said...

Why the god damned fuck am I awake at 6 in the morning?

Mike Lewis said...

jay: your prayers have been answered. The Raccoon may be getting divorced.

kylebrown said...

Oh dear. They did it. I begged them not but they did it anyways. PA has switched to their new modern look. All the kids say it's hip but I hate it with a passion.

Mike Lewis said...

This may be the cheapest XKCD joke ever.

_J_ said...

Leibniz totally invented calculus.

Avril is a delicate woman who requires both a subtle tongue and three firm fingers.

This is how I started my classes:

"So, I am your TA for this section of ethics. May name is Jay. You can either call me Jay or, if you feel me deserving of far more reverence and respect, 'oh captain my captain'."

So it begins.

kylebrown said...

See you missed the joke within the joke. It was a spoof of CSI: Miami on top of a Calculus joke.

kylebrown said...

If I were in your class I would address you as 'Oh Captain My Captain'.

_J_ said...

My hope is that one day while walking back to my office after class a student will yell "Oh Captain, My Captain!" to get my attention.

Or, better, some night when I am out at the bars perhaps a student will drunkenly yell "Oh cap'n mah cap'n" and collapse in awe and admiration.

That will have made it all worth it. And if they do it in front of a professor or collegue of mine? So much the better.

kylebrown said...

Or, better, some night when I am out at the bars perhaps a student will drunkenly yell "Oh cap'n mah cap'n" and collapse in awe and admiration.

Better yet, the student will drunkenly stand on their chair before yelling "Oh cap'n mah cap'n" and collapsing in awe and admiration.

Roscoe said...

Just don't let them press a Cap. Morgan into your hands.

Stay Strong, W/ British Dry.

_J_ said...

Grading papers takes far too long.

_J_ said...

One of my students quoted Ben Parker in her answer to a question on the ethics homework.

I'm not sure what to do with this.

Roscoe said...

wait..
Which Ben Parker?

Uncle Ben? or.. Ben Reilly-Parker?

Grades weigh on this commentary.
