[Profit of Doom] Blair Must Hang

Posted by Lex Fear on February 22, 2009

“In January 2008, J P Morgan Chase took him on as an advisor, plunging the bank into a crisis from which it may not recover. “Our firm will benefit greatly from his knowledge and experience”, they said. Over the next year the share price halved and profits plunged by more than 80%, much as I expected.

Now he’s helping to modernise Rwanda. Woe to that land that appoints Blair to modernise it! His normal way of expressing concern and trying to help is to send the RAF to destroy their infrastructure. I don’t know what precise form the catastrophe in Rwanda will take –could be genocide, could be a plague of frogs- but it will come. And if the Americans ever ask his advice on resolving the financial crisis he may yet succeed in ruining us all.”

[Heroes] Fax Off

Posted by Lex Fear on February 13, 2009

This has to be one of my favourite stories of 2008:

OK. Fine by me. One great advantage of my VOIP provider (Primus, for anyone who cares) is that their base package includes many interesting features, including the possibility to redirect any number to another. Thirty seconds later, I had the fax number redirected to the receptionist’s number.

From: The Consumerist.

[Fools And Their Money] Property Investor Mentality

Posted by Lex Fear on February 4, 2009

Bet this guy feels like a right tit now.

“The place is full with slightly mad people, to say the least. Not a dangerous kind of mad, just weird kind of mad. The fact that a crash might not occur is simply beyond their comprehension. It’s pretty odd how people can be so ignorant towards possibilities. I don’t think there will be a crash per’se, but I wouldn’t laugh or disrespect anyone who thinks there is going to be one.

How magnanimous of you. Heh. Here he is whinging about one of his tennants, something he is prone to do every now and then if you read through the archives.

Which reminds me, I just refused to pay rent rise to my landlord for the second time in 6 months. Ho hum, I guess we’ll be looking at a bigger place for the same amount of money anyway come summertime. The lettings agent is practically begging now (they’ve bolloxed all the paperwork, something tells me they stand to lose a large amount of money soon).

[Spam Poetry] Refuted

Posted by Lex Fear on March 30, 2008

Another edition for my new section capturing the evolving culture of spam, achieving in years, what a dozen monkeys and typewriter couldn’t do in 60 billion.

Salve,

Hohe hoholulu

Become of tranquil soul. When a person abstains of their
nuptialsong. The night fell, shrouded who had vanquished
all the celestials with the the money i had taken from it
to my father’s purse, productive of grief. When bonds are
severed or of the impotently dumb. Rescued in the nick of
sprinkler. Fortune placed the ring in the basin, that might
be said but perhaps it could be better expectant of loving
regards from all her husbands for joy to see thee after
long absence all the also are very much smaller than those
of good jambu. Here hath been described the great depression
wheel, making circles from right to left. The begets upon
a spouse taken from the one order my wife first taught me
the knowledge of god,.
Martinolli Swor

There’s something elegant in the way author describes the nuptialsong. I haven’t really heard anyone describe the nuptialsong in this way. You can see a lot of time went into this work of art. It’s as though Swor is trying to communicate something, using a mixture of old and contemporary english words, and failing.

America’s Most Smartest Model

Posted by Lex Fear on January 10, 2008

For those who found Celebrity Big Brother simply too high brow this year, America’s Most Smartest Modal is being broadcast on MTV from Sun 20th Jan and from the look of this clip promises plenty of cheap laughs at the expense of those who put image before smarts.

As always, viewer discretion is advised.

I Cannot Think of Anything Imaginative for the Title of this Post

Posted by Lex Fear on November 23, 2007

I didn’t do a meta post or anything but just so you know we finally completed our move to a new flat and I am impressed with the the unlimited (no throttle, no traffic shaping, upto 8mb) broadband service from Be There. I signed up on Friday last week and here I am this Friday back online (after a little trouble getting the line to our new flat fixed- I’ll tell you more later if I can find the time).

So I got a letter back from the appeals service against the Congestion Charge- the hearing in a couple of weeks time, I’m not attending as I think it’s a waste of time but I will be interested in seeing the decision of the adjudicator. I currently have 1 C-Charge and 2 parking tickets outstanding (1 ticket for being parked whilst I went to the post office to post my appeal for the first). I hope that after I’m done with these (for better or worse) I’ll be posting up the details for all to see in a new HIDI.

I have also finally managed to get TalkTalk to drop a final bill they were demanding of me for 6 months. I will definitely post a HIDI on that, it involves a complaint to Otello and emailing a few dozen TalkTalk email addresses.

Here’s a video for a retro text-based adventure (with a new twist) using an MSN Messaging window to interact with the character. It’s kind of fun if you have some time to spare and have read everything else there is to read on the tubes.

 

Please Note: It seems to me there is no objectionable content in this video but nevertheless, viewer discretion is advised.
