Joke of the day that is most likely a repost of the day
A salesman was visiting Silicon Valley during the tech boom of the 90's. After his last round of the day he stopped by a bar for a drink. Soon a nerd walked into the bar. The bartender took out a shotgun and shot the nerd dead. Looking on with horror the salesman asked:
"Why did you do that?"
The bartender replied, "Here in Silicon Valley we have so many of them it is open season"
A few days later the salesman was driving his route and so a horrible accident. A Best Buy truck flipped over on the highway. Soon nerds starting coming out from the hills and collecting the gear. The salesman got out of his car with his shotgun and starting blasting away. When the cops arrived the salesman was promptly arrested.
"What's wrong", he asked, "I thought it was legal to shoot nerds here?"
Girl: (staring) "Why do you need an icy cucumber?"
“I want to report a fraud. The government is lying to us all.”
I wouldn't let CG touch my Abacus!
When you're wrestling a gorilla, you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is.
Cogito ergo thumb - Sucking my thumb helps me to think.
The other day my wife received a letter from one of the state parks. (don't recall going there but not the point).
The letter basically said their data system was comprimised and usernames and passwords were retrieved my and unknown source.
They then went on to inform me that it is industry best practices to change passwords regularily.
Now while I agree I could help but think isn't it also indsustry best practices to not store your users usernames and passwords and use a thirdy party log in?
Now thats irony. Or maybe just hypocracy.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
The "from" bit is just bad proof-reading however "clients'" is correct in my opinion, being an avid fan of eats shoot and leaves, the apostrophe does not require a following S as there is an S preceding it.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Maybe you guys will appreciate this promo for the last of my shows:
We are the droids you are looking for. If you haven't seen us yet, don't Bantha sweat it. you have 2 more chances. Tomorrow, May 5th, we will enter the dungpit once again and destroy all nerfherders.

If we vape Sith ass on the 11th, we will need a drukload of our fans to come out on the 12th for the finals. For you jet juicers, there will be free Jawa Juice at the show.
I have much less Star Wars fan friends than I thought.
