What I’ve been up to, week ending 2010-06-27

  • Snaptu is much uglier than Nokia Communities, but has the massive advantage that, erm, it works. #nokiafail #
  • Blimey. The Penrith result doesn't look good for the whole 'avoiding PM Abbott' thing. *prepares to be deported as undesirable alien* #
  • Half-relatedly, only realised today that Tony's originally a Pom. Sorry about that, guys. #
  • Even by XKCD standards, today's is exceptionally good: http://xkcd.com/756/ #
  • Wow, the US version of Inbetweeners will surely be terrible… http://bit.ly/d8JHg3 #
  • Make Your Own Cuts! – http://www.noshockdoctrine.org.uk/?page_id=185 #
  • RT @MrKimHambley WORLD CUP BREAKING NEWS England have been appointed a new coach.. it arrives Thursday to bring them home (via @lesanto) #
  • Brilliant. LGW's new owners are going to drop 'London' and adopt a new logo that looks like a low-rent hotel: http://bit.ly/b8YWU2 #
  • Tomorrow is my first day at work, so #ebz and bed is definitely a better call than footy. We'll see. http://fallenlondon.com/c/124748 #
  • In general, this is good advice for Yoofs – but I'm sceptical of 9.iv http://bit.ly/brFPaW #
  • Rep Ed Markey in "is prick" shock – 'worst internal estimate' != 'what you tell the press': http://tinyurl.com/24nhkxz #
  • Fucking hell. Outrageous fail. Pls can FIFA sack all refs, and hire some blind lunatics to randomly scatter cards about like confetti? #
  • Srsly, does anyone think that the World Cup would be worse, rather than better, if the refs were told to halve the number of cards awarded? #
  • Fuck, I get annoyed by people who think that Gary McKinnon did any harm (as opposed to 'breaking the law', which he certainly did do). #
  • He exposed that US military IT security was run by assclowns, and briefly interrupted some of said assclowns' timewasting. That is all. #
  • It's disappointing to see @libcon republishing shitty pro-US propaganda on the McKinnon case: http://bit.ly/bsxs88 #
  • I get irate when people slate airports for being big malls with runways. YES, OF COURSE THEY ARE. This makes a 5-hour connection bearable. #
  • 3rd world airports (except the newish Indian PFI ones) on the other hand, are not big malls with runways. This makes them utterly shit. #
  • Best thing ever: http://i.imgur.com/17Kkt.jpg – well, if you like MUDs. #
  • After last big Gulf of Mex oil spill, all rapidly went back to normal apart from a few angry hippies: http://bit.ly/dBJanL (via @thabet1979) #
  • Sad about Frank Sidebottom – his recent public statements seemed to imply he wasn't about to cark it. But he has :-( http://bit.ly/bQ3Tts #
  • First day of real work in six months. To my surprise, am still alive. #
  • Tickets booked to Melbourne and Brisbane – next up, Isle of Man and Manchester. Carbon footprinty woo. #
  • RT @unslugged: #budget update: Tax on Burberry increased to 85%, tweed reduced to 2%. #
  • Bedtime. #ebz http://fallenlondon.com/c/126117 #
  • Cocaine mixed with PCP and LSD #linesthatgetmemad #
  • Shame; I preferred it when he was floating -> RT @MrDavidOcelot Just trying out Gravity #
  • My football predictions so far have been disastrous, but tipping ENG 2 – SVN 1 (I've got my winnings from ALG game on SVN win or draw, tho') #
  • Christ. My friend's dad has just been remanded in prison for arson, after setting fire to the local courthouse. Fail, indeed. #
  • I'm running out of appendages to cross. C'mon England, don't fuck it up. #
  • Thank fuck for that. #
  • End of USA-ALG game is kinda sad – would've been aces to see ALG holding on, and sending off the captain was academic-but-unfair. #
  • W00t – my ISP has just doubled my quota gratis. Thanks, iiNet! #
  • Dispelling footy adrenaline with a spot of #ebz. Next, BED. http://fallenlondon.com/c/127667 #
  • NL, UK, Australia have best health systems; US worst. People who aren't mouth-breathing right-wing nutters unsurprised: http://bit.ly/bnUn4d #
  • So the next Federal election will be between two Poms for PM, then? Maybe I'll stand next time round… #
  • "Australians are disturbed when they see boats come to our shore unannounced" – senior citizens who live north of the Brisbane Line, maybe? #
  • Haha, this is aces: http://www.b3ta.com/board/10097448 #socialmediaexperts #
  • Overheard bloke "…is 6 times the speed of sound". American girl: "wow, that's almost the speed of light!" *fetches cluebat* #
  • Quick #ebz before going out… http://fallenlondon.com/c/130814 #
  • #ebz We can't get enough gas down here, see. So you know what we burn for heat? … sinners. http://fallenlondon.com/c/131982 #
  • Bemused by opposition to English tests for immigrants. We should let in everyone who speaks English – but nobody who can't be bothered to. #
  • Dear the next person to post a bit.ly-ed Times link without warning that clicking it is useless: you're a cunt. #
  • #Worldcup prediction: #eng 1-0 #ger #
  • When the ref gets death threats from England fans, he'll fucking deserve them. #
  • Craig Foster: "before you call for video ref, how about a 2nd ref who can see?" <- yes, or you could not allow blind people to be refs. #
  • To 'could've been 3-0 types' – yes, *if James hadn't saved a goal and Lampard scored one*. But they did. Ref fail is different from ENG fail #
  • FAIL. Oh well. Go #ENG. More realistically, go #MEX so I don't have to support Germany in the next game… #
  • I think we can all agree, a well-deserved 4-2 victory to Germany. #
  • Also, that was a sodding good game, one of the best in the tournament so far. Unlike the #bra-#por dullfest. #
  • Go #mex. #asif #itdbenicethoughwouldntit #
  • #ger played very well; #eng played far better than #usa or #gha. But for utter #alg fail, we'd be in last eight. And then out, I'll grant. #
  • RT @timjana: Let's challenge the Germans in Cricket then! #

    From the Gatwick story: So what are the sheeples to think when Baa Baa disappears?

    that would be number 1 on the scale of "pointless general-purpose news site comments stupidity".
