Not sure how I came across it, but I found it amusing. Its about 5 minutes long, but I thought it was worth it.

Thats right, a hammer with a bottle opener on the tail. Nice little "tool" for the "relaxation unit".

I didn’t think this was really funny until Kelsi commented on it. Her comment?
sacrelicious. eh? eh?
That made it worth blogging.
Saw this on Jason Calacanis‘ site and was cracking up through the whole thing. Check it out.
I got this reminder in my inbox the other day from 43 things:
Dear future self,
I’m reminding you about your stated goal on 43 things, to
“decide what the hell I would like to do with the rest of my
How’s it going?

Another humorous link, this one being a video of a Topless Car Wash. This is, at the time of this writing, the #1 most popular video on Google Video.
Our son Jacob has been reading this list of Chuck Norris Facts over the last few days. I have to admit, they’re pretty damn funny. My favorite: If you Google search "Chuck Norris getting his ass kicked" you will generate zero results. It just doesn’t happen.
A friend referred me to the site for Waterfall 2006 – International Conference on Sequential Development. Damn funny.
I got home from work last night ready to start my two week vacation away from the office when Jake gave me the announcement that the “network was down”. I ignored it, because our SBC DSL connection tends to fade in and out lately, just disconnecting randomly and then coming back after a bit.
After we went to dinner, we came home and Jake asked me if the network was back up, as he wanted to check his MySpace to see if anyone had listened to his and Kelsi’s experiment in spoken word music that they have put up on their account.
What I found is that the UPS on our main Linux server in the labs had died and the machine had turned off. Since this runs our primary caching DNS server that the DHCP server in our router points all of our machines to, no one could get to the internet. I brought the server back up and our online lives continued, though now I have no battery backup if a power outage occurs (we’ll be picking up a new one today). Right now the unit is serving only as a surge protector.
Periodically, the battery backup unit begins to beep, because the battery is essentially dead. Luckily I have my headphones on listening to music so I only notice it periodically. However, it still begins to bug me.
I switch over to Google to do a search for the artist I’ve found to see if he has a web site. I use a customized Google home page, and my latest mail appears at the top and I see a few messages from my darling wife who is sitting in the family room watching TV and surfing the web. Following are the texts of the messages that she has sent me during the time I was oblivious to the world.
Message 1 (7:36a):
your microwave dinner is done
Message 2 (7:41a):
you’re mini-doorbell is ringing
Message 3 (7:44a):
a big truck is backing up in the living room!
Message 4 (7:54a):
your Morse code message is coming in!
Message 5 (8:01a):
your heartbeat monitor is going off!!
Message 6 (8:14a):
school hearing testing in progress….which ear to you hear the beeping?
We definitely have to get a UPS today. Its disappointing that this one only lasted for a couple of years. Its encouraging, however, that I have a wife with a sense of humor.
The HUAR command center site is now up and running. HUAR stands for “Humans United Against Robots”. This organization, started by Keith Malley of the Keith and the Girl podcast, “was designed to educate and aware the citizenry of the world the impending attack that computers and robots will put into affect against humans”.
