I hope in 52 more years it will be my face that makes you quit the interwebs, if we still have them around. If that's the last thing you see, we'll try to carry on without you.
You're younger than I thought Walt.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
According Sky news in the UK[^] a lion has been spotted in the peroxide blonde county of Essex.
The article says the animal roared. I've seen many lion in my time and apart from when they are confronted or at the scene of the kill, roaring is very seldom what they do; instead they emit a sort of vocal lowing sound. It's hard to describe but I never, ever heard any distant, solitary lion roaring. That leaves me to believe that, yes, they saw something, but a roaring lion it was most probably not. Perhaps the witnesses have seen too many Tarzan films where the stereotype lion was birthed.
Until something is found I'll choose to believe it was a cow dressed to look like one so that it could avoid the slaughterman's bolt gun. It were aliens; them told me it wuz so.
"I do not have to forgive my enemies, I have had them all shot." — Ramón Maria Narváez (1800-68).
"I don't need to shoot my enemies, I don't have any." - Me (2012).
Can't blame the police for being cautious though. Just imagine the carnage if a lion had wandered into one of those Essex towns at a busy time like a Friday night... Poor creature wouldn't have stood a chance!
Hi , I would like to discuss something that has become painfully apparent to me recently, I don't know if any of you experienced the same problem.
Sometimes while sitting in the huge spec meeting , usually when two managers discuss something arb like the submit button color and your thoughts drifts off and goes designing the software architecture and maybe some cool features while you might be missing some key information.
Any tips tricks one can use to stay on the ball and keep your mind on the game before your hear the chairman point a question at you having the only words your heard "So what are your thoughts on the matter ? ".
Also some funny moments from personal experience would also be interesting to hear.
I was in high-school when i was in a physics lecture when the teacher saw me dozing off and called me out to solve some problems on the board , lucky for me I was far head in my studies so was able to take it from there but lesson learned that if it was chemistry I would have been royally screwed.
