The EVERYTHING thread

I've been getting confused recently with conversations being held in several different threads at once. As Siu Blue Wind has fairly pointed out, I am partly to blame for this unfortunate trend. So, to atone for my sins, to clear up the cross-threads problem, and to celebrate the arrival of my pretty red star, I am starting the thread to end all threads. No matter what the topic is, it is on-topic here. This thread will transcend all threads by being all threads. There will never be a need to start another thread again! Now, fly! Fly! Bring me that girl and her slippers! Fly! Fly! Fly!

There now needs to be an Aliquid thread.


Aliquid = Something (in Latin)

*evil laughter* In addition to the above-mentioned reasons, it's also punishment for all of you being in inconvenient time zones and keeping me up past my bedtime.

And before I go to sleep, I will offer this link as a topic for discussion:
Swedish vs British Nightclubs (ctrl-click/right click to download -- short PowerPoint presentation).

Or, you can read an online book about a Briton's year in Pyongyang in the late '80s.

At first I felt bad about taking a dump in the handicap stall at work. I like it because the seat conforms to your butt, and it makes for a more comfortable prolonged reading experience. Plus you have all that space to yourself. The commode is a bit higher than the regular one. I'm not short, but I can dangle my feet and swing my legs when sitting on it; kinda makes you feel like a kid again. You can even recline if you want to. As a bonus, the sides have handles so you can ease your way off the commode. Sometimes sitting 9 hours a day makes your legs weak, you know?

So I'm reading my book, then I heard the door to the restroom open. I could tell from the feeble sound of his footsteps that he was in crutches. He walked up to the stall, the cast on his foot I saw beneath the door confirmed he was indeed handicapped.

The bastard turd burglared me.

"THERE'S SOMEBODY IN HERE! JESUS CHRIST!"

"Whoops, sorry"

I didn't feel so bad anymore.

1 for X = 1
10 ? "Hello world, I r teh sux"
20 ? "i said this crap",X,"times"
30 X = X + 1
40 when X = 200 goto 50, else goto 10
50 end

....this is probably the worst code I have ever written.....it's been almost 10 years since I done anything in basic...14 if you consider hw different VAX basic is from PC basic variants.

it's close except it seems you merged for and while statements together
for x = 1 to 200 step 1
? hello world"
? i said this " , x, "times"

I made raw lettuce wraps last night. And they were good.

There are a lot of envelopes in my office.

I have to use a key to go to the bathroom.

I did donuts on a gravel parking lot on the way home today. I also enjoyed drifting a corner in the rain during lunch. Oh wait, no I didn't, drifting is illegal in Michigan

I managed to go fast enough on my mountain bike (specialized numbus EX armadillo tires) that I could not hear jack over the tire noise when pushing around 75+rpm in my top gear (44-11). That was a fun ride.

Then I bought some tombstone pizzas (hey, I'm broke it's about rent time), and came home.

....and I'm having dizziness spells again...time to cook one. This has been a regular occurance for me....just a case of trying to do too much....too much bike training, too much work, too much housework, too much research...not enough sleep, and not enough carbs.
