Singles Dish Up The Dirt

In today’s mx newspaper there is a completely pointless, but laughable, article titled Singles Dish Up The Dirt which talks about A US matchmaking service (It’s Just Lunch) being sued by its clients because they were sent on bad dates. Most of the cases seem to be what you would expect from a blind date, i.e. the person turns out not to be who you were lead to believe they are. While some of them are bad, such as a lady being matched up with an alcoholic (surely these people should be screened out of the service?), there was one mention which seems like It’s Just Lunch were deliberately matching people up with the “wrong” kind of partner.

“Dating nightmares included women matched with married men, and a Minnesota woman who requested no Republicans or religious types only to be set up with a Catholic Republicans and and (sic) Seventh Day Adventist” 

Funny Spam Comments

I was just reading through my filtered spam comments, when I came across a few funny ones, so I thought I’d share them (minus the links in them).

WATER…… It has been scientifically proven that if we drink one liter of
water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1
kilo of Escherichia coli bacteria. Escherichia coli bacteria is found in feces,
in other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop!

However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, vodka, beer
or other liquors) because alcohol has to go through a distillation process of boiling,
filtering and fermenting.

WATER = POOP
WINE = HEALTH

Free yourself of Poop, drink WINE!!!

Therefore: It is better to drink wine and talk like crap than to drink water and be
full of sh it.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information, I am doing it as a public service.

Have a nice day…

and another…

A beautiful young lady decided she wanted to get rich quick, so she proceeded to find herself a rich 75-year-old man, planning to screw him to death on their wedding night.

The courtship and wedding went off without any problem, in spite of the half-century age difference. The first night of her honeymoon, she got undressed, and waited for him to come out of the bathroom to come to bed.

When he emerged, however, he had nothing on except a condom to cover a twelve-inch erection, and was carrying a pair of earplugs and a pair of nose plugs. Fearing her plan had gone desperately amiss, she asked, “What are those for?”

The elderly groom replied, “There are two things I can’t stand: the sound of a woman screaming, and the smell of burning rubber.”

What they had to do with the links that they were actually promoting… I have no idea.

Ridiculous Tech Obsessions

A recent article – Ten Signs You’re Tech Obsessed – on the Sydney Morning Herald website lists ten signs which may indicate that you are “too close to your technology”. The ten signs include:

  1. You forget basic bodily functions
  2. You collect ridiculous accessories
  3. You check your email on Sunday … at 3am
  4. You know your mates by their online ‘handles’ rather than their real names
  5. Your favourite song goes “beep”
  6. Instead of laughing, you say ‘LOL’
  7. You answer your mobile phone when you’re on a date
  8. You change their ‘outfits’ depending on their ‘mood’
  9. You own a BlackBerry
  10. You speak in a secret language

Now I don’t own a BlackBerry, but I’m pretty sure that I can relate to more than one of those signs. Ok, so maybe I might be highly “involved” with my technology but I just can’t understand what the people in their real-life example were thinking to go as far as losing their life or taking the life of another. Some of the more ludicrous examples included:

  • A 24-year-old South Korean man dies after an 86-hour gaming session.
  • An Alabama man who killed a policeman blames his addiction to Grand Theft Auto for the crime. A jury later dismisses the excuse and finds him guilty.
  • Conscripts in Finland use internet addiction to avoid military service.
  • A South Korean man dies after 50 hours of non-stop computer gaming.
  • China opens its first internet addiction clinic; and
  • An English bus driver is sacked for playing games on his handheld device while driving.

The Hundredth Man + The Death Collectors

If you’re looking for a good read I suggest two books by Jack Kerley, The Hundredth Man and The Death Collectors. Jack Kerley debuted as an author with The Hundredth Man and then continued his epic tale with the sequel The Death Collectors, living up to his first novel.

The Hundredth Man is a “psychotic-killer-with-a-horrendous-childhood thriller” (Publishers Weekly) which follows the story of lead character Carson Ryder, a young detective who has a troubled past and is part of the newly formed two-man PSIT (Psychopathological and Sociopathological Investigative Team) unit, or referred to as Piss-it by fellow detectives, partnered with Harry Nautilus. The story follows the two through Piss-its very first case, finding a killer who leaves his victims headless, and also follows Ryder through his past and his confrontations with his brother who gives Ryder clues from an asylum which he resides.

The Death Collectors continues the epic tale of Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus. This time the Piss-its team are investigating the bizarre murder of a naked female buried beneath flowers and surrounded by candles in a cheap motel. Even more dauntingly as the case progresses they end up chasing after a dead serial killer Marsden Hex Camp, who had been killed many years before in a courtroom, and on their investigation, they are involved in the collection and selling of murder memorabilia.
