YES! Among all the other Super Bowl moments (tough break there, Seahawks fans) I have to thank Katy Perry and the NFL for finally giving Selachian-Americans representation on television.

They even got one that dances about as well as I do!

iTunes told me that there was a software update for the iPod classic, and as these things do, popped up a clickwrap license with the End User License Agreement.

For the vast majority of you who are never bored/paranoid enough to read these, please note:

(Screaming all-caps in original.)

So don't try to fly your 787 or control your heart-lung machine with the scrollwheel.

Okay, people worship some odd deities at times, but Prince Philip?
'We want him to spend the last years of his life here, because we believe that when he returns as our god, his powers will make our wrinkles disappear and we will have many wives to attend to our every need. He won't have to hunt for pigs or anything. He can just sit in the sun and have a nice time.'

Get perpendicular! (Work-safe, as long as audio and laughter are okay.)

Derek Zumsteg of USS Mariner has way too much time on his hands.

I mean it. Way, way too much time.

How do I know this? He's done a long statistical analysis of a baseball game in a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

This is absolutely hysterical. Imagine a baseball game report written by the Mythbusters teamed up with Bill James. Add Bugs Bunny. Stir.
We open to see "a screaming liner" hit by the home team. The outcome of the hit is not defined, and the hit itself seems an indicator that the game was not official: the ball appears to be a shade of grey, and makes an almost-human screaming noise as it travels. Since the balls used in the remainder of the game are white, and since we also see that the Teatotallers are a horrible offensive team, it is reasonable to conclude that this footage is from some kind of pre-game exhibition, or perhaps an entirely different game entirely.
How do I know I have a good boss? First thing Monday morning, he stuck his head in my office and asked me if I'd seen this yet. When I said that I hadn't had a chance to catch up on my RSS reader, he emailed me the permalink to that post.

Hey, if you're trying to fool me, you need to decide which of the many banks I don't have an account with you'll claim to be.

Please pick just one, though. It's just so pathetic when you don't even do a good search & replace job.
We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your Bank Of America Internet Banking account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the Washington Mutual network is our primary concern.

From one of today's advance fee scam letters, this one from a dying widower in Kuwait who wants to donate his "huge cash deposit of Ten Million Seven Hundred Thousand American dollars (U.S.$10,700,000)" to charity, but is willing to give me 20% for my time and an additional 5% for miscellaneous expenses:

"I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment [...]"

What, it went down to St. Elizabeth's Hospital and knocked over the statue of Mary?

Via BoingBoing: the backstroke of the west, which gives examples of badly translated English to Chinese to English in the subtitles from a bootleg DVD of Revenge of the Sith.

Unfortunately, none of the examples given were of the Anakin/Padme dialogue; I suspect that would only be improved by this process. (After all, how could it get worse?)

Normally I don't bother posting "your friends list as a Star Trek crew" type memes, because randomly assigning roles is generally boring and irrelevant. This one was more amusing than most, especially given some of the casting choices.

don't click if you hate these )
