What I’ve been up to, week ending 2010-06-20

  • Off to the Belgian Beer Cafe. Belgian beer FTW. #
  • No Belgian beer available, so drank Australian beer as well. Which is nearly as good. Now #ebz o'clock http://fallenlondon.com/c/115119 #
  • RT @feral_pigeon peck at rob green's humble pie #
  • Amusing spammers are OK by me: RT @diamondauction But for my lawyer, I’d still be in prison. It went a lot faster with two people digging. #
  • Part of why I quit > RT @adambanksdotcom Dear media. When you advertise for an "experienced intern", you are now taking the piss @karasimsek #
  • Did anyone really think 'dumb Yanks' at 'USA wins 1-1'? Background v/@qwghlm is interesting http://bit.ly/aCKblg but joke is obvious anyway #
  • Cross about Tim Cahill's completely undeserved red card, having realised he'll miss #gha and so #aus will probably lose group. #hangtheref #
  • Most interesting match to watch so far, and the only one where the two teams abbreviate to palindromes #ned #den #
  • Punchline follows: RT @amyvernon How do you measure the ROI with geolocation. #twtrconure #
  • RT @johnb78 @AmyVernon with geolocation from 51.43ºN to 55.38ºN north-south, and 6.01°W to 10.27°W east-west. Hope this helps… #
  • If we're applying transitivity, and excluding hari-kiri, then based on #eng-#Jpn friendly and #jpn-#cmr fail, #eng have no chance. #
  • See also, my last tweet about Japan's insipid play. Maybe #eng have a chance > RT @thejimsmith Well, that'll show *me*, won't it? #worldcup #
  • Have any other transport geeks ever accidentally inspired pub confusion by asking for a pint of Bom-Bar-Di-Eh? #
  • "Honda and Matsui need to dominate". Luckily, Kawasaki and Sony are happy to play second fiddle. #worldcup #
  • The Japanese did win. According to my voodoo science, that implies England will get to the quarter-finals. #
  • So Google Calendar is broken in Chrome – I've had to fire up Safari to use it. #epicgooglefail #
  • RT @mpesce Apparently teh Fail Whale is one of the official logos of teh Whurled Cup… #
  • This is a masterpiece of the 'shorter' genre – Melanie Phillips' latest book, digested: http://is.gd/cPl7h (via @dnotice) #
  • Android sales now level with iPhone: http://bit.ly/9W68qi – also analysts *still* saying 'mcommerce works in Japan so will work elsewhere'. #
  • Coincidentally, this is exactly what they were saying when I worked in technology news in 2000-2002… #
  • RT @wallaceme: Ironically, people complaining about Vuvuzelas has now become an endless drone in the background. (via @mrpower) #
  • I don't want to be a neo-colonial dick, but why does every country apart from Ivory Coast say its name in either local or English? #
  • I mean, if the residents of said venue were to call it by its African name, then fair play, but why on earth do they insist on #civ? #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #thomashardy #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #charlesdickens #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #kingleyamis #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #martinamis #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #everyRussianauthor #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #everyIrishauthor #exceptFlannOBrienwhosgreatfun #
  • People are bastards and life is shit #sixwordnovels #ohandsamuelbeckett #not #
  • #allnightfreeboozefail – and other seven word Twitter taglines. #
  • Nearly bed, but #ebz first, obviously. http://fallenlondon.com/c/116869 #
  • Ignorant Brit alert: I'm actually shocked that it's only now we've admitted that #bloodysunday was a horrific, sick massacre of civilians #
  • Is news basically like Premiership football and professionally valuable information, or is it basically not? #isrupertmurdochanidiot #
  • Hehe: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/monologues/15comicsans.html #
  • Best Student Activity Ever: http://bit.ly/dlROCH (via @iamtef) #
  • Enjoying the #Tooheys adverts. "Changing a lightbulb for your nan, while she's in the bath, with her boyfriend", indeed… #
  • So today I didn't play any #ebz until 3pm, how restrained of me… http://fallenlondon.com/c/119501 #
  • My hopes for tonight: #ger (for #aus's sake), #svk (both generally, and for #eng's sake), and #eng (duh). #
  • If #ger can beat #srb 5-0 or more, that'd be particularly good. #
  • You misspelt 'funniest' -> RT @jgrindal http://imdb.to/aB7D1 – Saddest IMDB page ever (via @BigGibb) #
  • I've got a friend whose only listed IMDB role is as a dead child; sadly their character had a name so the entry doesn't work quite so well. #
  • I hope they upgrade #ebz soon, I've almost reached the level cap… http://fallenlondon.com/c/120933 #
  • Just put a bet on for #alg win or draw tonight – so either #eng win, or I get a wodge of cash to drown my sorrows… #
  • I should also point out that the bet in question is from a bookies' "One Free Bet On World Cup!" email, rather than my own cash money… #
  • I'm anti-death-penalty, but if people are going to have it, firing squads are both relatively painless and appropriately savage. #
  • Lethal injection's a cop-out – you're pretending that ending someone's life is a medical procedure, not a brutal-but-necessary (IYO) act. #
  • Anyone ever notice that you can't spell 'crucifiction' without 'fiction'? Well, as long as you spell the first word a bit incorrectly. #
  • This is a good, obvious, & *shouldn't be necessary*, & *one cries that it is in 2010* piece from Laurie re abortion – http://bit.ly/d3Q3m0 #
  • Specifically, you forget as middle-class educated grownup that whilst abortion is available on demand for you, that isn't what the law says. #
  • So my mum killed herself from post-natal depression: http://bit.ly/drtGlv – and even she would have given this lady a kick in the fanny. #
  • Bigoted moron of the week: http://is.gd/cUO41 (via @anattendantlord) #
  • Anyone know why #usa are listed above #eng in Group C, even though we've the same points and the same goal difference? #
  • Halfway up the mountains. No hillbilly action as yet… #
  • Thanks to @mudlarklives @mjturner1975 @griefoftwats @jonniemarbles for alleviating my footy ignorance. Although @pchallinor made me laugh. #
  • RT @siwhite0: England team visit orphanage in Soweto. "It's good to put a smile on the faces of people with no hope" said Mbutto aged 6. #
  • Loving the idiots abusing @dianainheaven. Do follow. #
  • Horne & Corden #horrorsketchshows #
  • A delightful weekend in the country. Now, RSS catchup and #ebz http://fallenlondon.com/c/123571 #
  • This is some fun, semi-pointful number-crunching: http://bit.ly/d7g5SR #
  • GO #NZL! Aces. Yes, I know it won't last, etc. #
  • This is brilliant – BP and the Axis of Evil http://ht.ly/20QCB (saw on RSS, reminded to Tweet by @thabet1979) #
  • Unsurprising but disappointing equaliser. #nzl 2-1 would be lovely but unlikely; do prove me wrong, the All-Whites… #
  • 1x offside goal, 1x dodgy penalty. I hope #nzl at least hold #ita to a draw, since that's what's deserved so far… #
  • Helen Keller -> RT @manipillai Who is the ref in this game? #nzl #ITA #
  • While England may be very very tenuously gripping to the off-chance of qualifying, nonetheless haha France hahahahahaha! #lagreve #
  • Oh fuck. I was following @sarahpalinusa as a @dianainheaven jolly parody. Clicked link, and realised was her verified account. #theendtimes #
  • Just found out Dermot O'Leary is on Twitter. For 2 seconds, I thought "yay, D O'L is on Twitter". Then I thought, "oh wait, D O'L is a dick" #
  • OK, so nearly everyone non-Maori in NZ is of British descent, right? So we could hire their keeper…? #
  • CLUE: don't. RT @LDN How to queue for Wimbledon tickets http://bit.ly/cdTPFR #
  • GO NZ! Absolutely best result of the World Cup so far. #
  • On #eng: @herring1967's point "the team were all playing like they'd all found out they were fucking each other's wives" has some relevance #
  • OK, so 'Toby Young is a dick' aside (TRUE), is there any difference between ConDem 'Free Schools' and Labour's 'Academies'? #
