The man across from me on the train today was as unshaved as I am, in need of a haircut just like me and was reading the very book that made me an avid reader of whatever Terry Pratchett happens to write.

Should I freak out?
The two of you would probably get on really well.

The man I sat next to on the train though... Never before have I seen someone use a portable DVD player to listen to a CD. In fact I haven't even seen someone using a personal CD player for years.

Remember those things, CDs? Shiny round discs?

For graduating High School I received a portable CD player. It was pretty nice for 1994 technology, though it was prone to skipping.

A LOT.

I remember big black shiny flat but round 12" bits of vinyl with groves cut into it that used to play on record players - how quaint is that?

Would it make you feel better to know I own records, some of which I purchased myself in the music store? :p

I still had one in high school. It ate batteries rather quick so I would occasionally steal them from the TV remotes :lol:

I had the impression you should breathe smoothly to avoid skipping.

I engaged in a spot of coning this evening. And I have experienced the funniest reaction from a staff member I have ever experienced.

For the unintitiated, this is what it is:

Essentially, it is annoying/confusing the drive through staff of McDonald's by grabbing ice cream cones the wrong way round.

The person in question in our coning attempt was a 16 year old or so guy, who's response to the situation was yelling "fuck you!" in an upset sounding voice and slamming the window. Got some ice cream inside my mate's Magna, but it was worth it :lol:

Well at least you can't be run over while doing it.

I disagree.

It's Jackass for the Health & Safety generation.

They'll soon be doing other zany things like sticking parking permits on their cars upside down, and sneaking into motel bathrooms to unwrap bars of soap and leave them unused.

MTV will snap it up. And call it LameAss. Probably.

Where will such antisocialism end? :p

In effect, it's just IRL trolling of McDonald's workers. Which I find quite funny on a Friday night after a long week. It's not about the act, it's about the reaction. Usually you get a WTF type of look, as in the video. But the reaction we got was hilarious, and I'm sorry if you disagree. :)

Sorry for the double post, I can't edit on my phone. But I never liked Jackass, I found it stupid and unfunny. It was just stupid, and in many cases life threatening, or just plain antisocial acts for the sake of it. In my opinion, this is humourous. If, because it doesn't involve illegal or life threatening acts, it is 'lame', i happen to disagree.
