Whenever someone complains about having a song stuck in their head, I help them out by singing the Facts of Life theme song.

If you don't know what song I'm talking about....GET OFF MY LAWN!

Ok I think I get it. The best I can do it in is 8 so here's hoping 7 other people know where I'm going with it.

Danny DeVito was in Batman Returns with Michael Keaton

I'm confused. So it's not my job to connect the actors, just to provide one step in the connection? Then who gets the points? What if you know of a shorter connection, but someone already threw in one that will be alot more difficult to complete?

Jumpin' Salmon seems like he likes to live on the edge. I don't do anything crazy while sober. But sometimes when there's beer involved, I guess I think alot less.

Once after our white water rafting trip, we were having some beers with the river guides. I decided I wanted to get on top of the cabin so I climbed up the side of it, grabbed a power line to pull myself up. Stupid. Then once I was up there everyone got the "oh crap" look on their faces because they couldn't figure out how to get me back down. It was about 10 feet at the lowest point, but 6 feet at the lowest point of the next cabin over, so they had me jump from one roof to the next. That was scary, but I somehow made it and got down.

This is my masterpiece of a website. It's done entirely with MS Paint and Notepad, with the exception of the current fake banner ad that was sent to me by a friend. It was drawn in MS Paint, but obviously animated using something else.

I get my hosting free because my friend owns Triptychos. Even if you have to pay though, the prices are good.

Very strange indeed.

I do, however, love the use of the MS Paint drawing.

A lot of ISP's will give you some webspace with your internet connection. Is that not in your deal?

I don't care who knows what city I live in.

Birthday Present in General
Warrior

Last year I got a cute boy for my birthday. Unfortunately, we've since broken up, but that was a really good present.

Happy Birthday Bain. I hope it was a good one.

As for Thin Air's question, something personal is always good. If they're close friends, you should know their likes and dislikes. Listen closely to them.

For example, at my birthday party last year, a friend broke one of my wine glasses. The cute boy that I got for my birthday bought me new wine glasses for Christmas because he saw how upset I was about it.

Good luck on finding the perfect gift.

It was a clever play on words...which according to dictionary.com, is the definition of "pun".

Native speakers of what? :confused:

Yes, Thuryl looks like he's grown a bit. Still too cute and too young for me though.

Salmon, we've got a lot of Oak trees in Richmond. All that wood came from trees that fell down all over the city. We split it up and deliver it to elderly and handicapped people who can't afford to heat their homes.

Thanks spy.there. It's good to see you too. Bill's doing great. He's still a cranky cat, but he's MY cranky cat!

One last thing. If you have to explain it, it becomes way less punny.

Detta is short for Bernadette. Bernadette Van Bergen is my "fake name". I was almost named Bernadette, but my mom changed her mind when she got to the hospital. So I'm a little sad about that.

Where did you hear that? I read it from a book called Count Down by Steve Olson. Pretty good book, actually.
A guy on another board I frequent was posting a bunch of math jokes yesterday. He knows I love the math talk.

Here's the rest:

Do you know why the mathematician was so unhappy?

His life was full of problems.

***

Why did the cube cross from the second to the third dimension?

The second dimension was too square.

***

A mathematician and a physicist agree to a psychological experiment. The (hungry) mathematician is put in a chair in a large empty room and his favorite meal, perfectly prepared, is placed at the other end of the room. The psychologist explains, "You are to remain in your chair. Every minute, I will move your chair to a position halfway between its current location and the meal." The mathematician looks at the psychologist in disgust. "What? I'm not going to go through this. You know I'll never reach the food!" And he gets up and storms out. The psychologist ushers the physicist in. He explains the situation, and the physicist's eyes light up and he starts drooling. The psychologist is a bit confused. "Don't you realize that you'll never reach the food?" The physicist smiles and replies: "Of course! But I'll get close enough for all practical purposes!"

I just read this one over at another site and loved it...

Two male mathematicians are in a restaurant.

The first one says to the second that the average person knows very little about basic mathematics.
The second one disagrees, and claims that most people can cope with a reasonable amount of math.

The first mathematician goes off to the washroom, and in his absence the second calls over the waitress and tells her that after a few minutes when his friend returns, he will call her over and ask her a question. All she has to do is answer one third x cubed.

She repeats 'one thir -- dex cue'? He repeats 'one third x cubed'.
She: 'one thir dex cuebd'? Yes, that's right, he says. So she agrees, and goes off mumbling to herself, 'one thir dex cubed...'.

The first guy returns and the second proposes a bet to prove his point, that most people do know something about basic math. He says he will ask the blonde waitress an integral calculus question, and the first laughingly agrees.

The second man calls over the waitress and asks "what is the integral of x squared?" The waitress says 'one third x cubed' and while walking away, turns back and says over her shoulder "plus a constant"!

A man went to his psychiatrist wearing nothing but seran wrap underpants. His doctor said "CLEARLY, I can see yer nuts".

Hello all. Long time no see.

I'm in the Spider Cave in Exile II and there's a path blocked by webs that I can't get past. I'm supposed to rub the milky white stuff on me to get past that right?

I go to 33,23 and touch the pool of stuff, and go back and I still can't get through the web. I tried drinking it, that didn't work either. Is there another pool or something? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.
