Internet goodness

The intertron can give you many feelings. Some wrong1 and some good.

Talking to people overseas for free using skype gives you that good "the world is so small, everything is so connected, I am skynet" feeling. It's been a while since I've felt that feeling, but using this and this have given it back to me.

Hey kidlets, what is wrong with the proposed logo for the UK Office of Governement Commerce?

Read about this marketing folly and bungled logo attempt here.

Thanks go to b3ta since I pinched all these links from their newsletter.

1Don't ever do an image search for "that's wrong"...bad things appear.


Before committing oneself to Andrew's call to arms you must prepare yourself for the foul beasts that lay within the Gate.

Unfortunate address

Is this where all the bogans originated from? Unleashed from Bogan Gate, NSW?

I can't work out if this was staged or not.

Transcript for those without sound:

Reporter: Brian is 1990 graduate of Northern and he is going to tell us a little bit about this amazing structure.

Brian: As you can see it's the leaning tower of Pisa. It's about 12000 blocks, it took over 2 weekends to build, and I'm really excited because next week the Guinness book of world records team are going to come to evaluate it. I'm really looking forward to that.

Brian: Oh! oh!
Reporter: Geez Brian, I don't know what to say.

Interest Rates

Everyone wants to save money to pay for the latest rate rises and saving that spare change is boring. I'm sick of stapling my $5 notes to the cat and I need to put coffee in that mug that currently has all the shrapnel from the wallet. So I need somewhere to store my spare change. Lucky for me, some fancy pants inventor in Japan came up with a new awesome money box.

Pure Pwnage

Andrew's spelling of "ownage" reminds me of something I used to watch a few years back. It's still funny. Welcome to the funny videos of Pure Pwnage. Here is first episode of the first season.

As an aside, as I linked to in my comment "ownage" can have many spellings. My spelling is the old school spelling, Wikipedia explains it:

Owned has now spread beyond computer and gaming contexts and become part of standard slang, where it typically entails defeat or humiliation, usually in an amusing way or through the dominance of an opposing party.[7] Other variations of the word owned include own3d, 0wn3d and oaned,[7] terms which incorporate elements of leetspeak.

At some point, the variant term "pwned" appeared in the same subculture (generally thought to have been invented by Paul Semenets; this alteration originated from typos that occurred when hasty gamers tried typing too fast on the keyboard, thus missing the "o" and typing "p" instead).
