Twit-idiot (affectionate term).

Web: LOLCat Bible Translation Project

Genesis 1 - LOLCat Bible Translation Project:

"1 Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem.

2 Da Urfs no had shapez An haded dark face, An Ceiling Cat rode invisible bike over teh waterz.

3 At start, no has lyte. An Ceiling Cat sayz, i can haz lite? An lite wuz. 4 An Ceiling Cat sawed teh lite, to seez stuffs, An splitted teh lite from dark but taht wuz ok cuz kittehs can see in teh dark An not tripz over nethin. 5 An Ceiling Cat sayed light Day An dark no Day. It were FURST!!!"

(All right, now isn't this going a bit too far? Don't you have the feeling that the human race could make more significant progress on the grander scale if so many twidjits weren't piddling around with stuff like this on the Internet?)

Language: feck, fecking

Feck can mean the entirely innocent "to steal" or "to throw" in Ireland.

Peeves: Tim and Eric on Adult Swim

I hate these guys. Everything they do is soooo stupid and soooo obnoxious!

Trivia: Netflix's Robowriter of Houston

As Robowriter of Houston on Netflix, I post the same movie reviews that appear on Moviette. In the most-influential member rankings (that run from a high of 1 to a low of around 2,700,000), I began at around 1,200 a couple of months ago and am currently at 233.

[Dec. 6: Netflix eventually succeeded in posting my new avatar, an LOLcat who says "I can has movies!"]

Press: 'Twelve Days of Christmas' gets costly - AP

"While the origins of the Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' may be a mystery, one thing is certain: It's getting more costly to buy your true love all the items mentioned.

"It would cost $78,100 to buy the 364 items, from a single partridge in a pear tree to the 12 drummers drumming, repeatedly on each day as the song suggests, according to the annual PNC Christmas Price Index compiled by PNC Wealth Management. The cost is up 4 percent from $75,122 last year."

(The kicker is that milkmaids, who experienced a salary boost this year, now make more than I do!)
