ISO 9001 Illuminati Flag
Topic: Humor 6:05 pm EDT, Jun  9, 2005

This is a picture of an ISO 9001 compliance flag. Large companies might hang these around their office when doing an ISO 9001 initiative. Their employes will then feel like they are characters in Dilbert or Office Space. Either that, or they might feel like pawns of The Conspiracy.

Rattle's Conspiracy Theory of The Day
Topic: Humor 4:39 pm EDT, May 27, 2005

] Saudi Arabia declared a state of alert and canceled all
] leave of its security forces on Friday after ailing King
] Fahd was taken to hospital, an Interior Ministry
] official said.

] "The authorities declared a state of alert, canceled all
] leave of the security forces and put forces on standby
] after the king was admitted to hospital," the official
] told Reuters.

So, as it turns out, the reason Bush and Fahd were holding hands is because the CIA gave Bush a poison (which we have an antidote for) that requires several minutes to dissolve through the skin. Its slow acting, so as not appear like an assassination attempt, and completely undetectable. The reason Bush was the one to deliver the poison is due to the fact that only the President can get around the past executive orders against political assassination.

This conspiracy theory was brought to you by Pepsi, the choice of a new generation.

Mr. Marbles
Topic: Humor 3:42 pm EDT, May 15, 2005

] Mr. Marbles is a cat who turns up dead, floating in a
] swimming pool. The prop is a jointed cloth construction,
] with pieces of plastic tubing to keep the limbs rigid,
] and filled with small air bladders to make it buoyant.
] The skull was cast in insulation foam in a silicone mold
] of an actual cat skull. The eyes and teeth are from a
] taxidermy supply company.

Everyone should have Mr. Marbles floating in their pool.

Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization?
Topic: Humor 3:32 pm EDT, Apr 26, 2005

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: How come?

Answer: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines!And this is sent to you by an American, using Bill Gates' technology Which he enjoyed stealing from the Japanese. And you are probably reading this on one of the IBM clones that use Taiwanese-made chips, and Korean-made monitors, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by lorries driven by Indians, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, trucked by Mexican illegal aliens, and finally sold to you.

That, my friend, is Globalization! Finally, an explanation in English.

Pointed out via someone on the SE2600 mailing list. I'm pretty sure this is old, but its still relevant and funny.

Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization? - MIT students pull prank on conference - Apr 14, 2005
Topic: Humor 12:34 am EDT, Apr 16, 2005

] In a victory for pranksters at the Massachusetts
] Institute of Technology, a bunch of computer-generated
] gibberish masquerading as an academic paper has been
] accepted at a scientific conference.

] "Rooter" features such mind-bending gems as: "the model
] for our heuristic consists of four independent components:
] simulated annealing, active networks, flexible modalities,
] and the study of reinforcement learning" and "We implemented
] our scatter/gather I/O server in Simula-67, augmented with
] opportunistically pipelined extensions."

] The students were soliciting cash donations so they could
] attend the conference and give what Stribling billed as a
] "completely randomly-generated talk, delivered entirely
] with a straight face."
] They exceeded their goal, with $2,311.09 cents from 165 donors.

The State of the Union Address Drinking Game 2005

Here are the rules you will follow on Feb 2nd.

This is will be the point in time it becomes clear the only reason Bush is pushing the doomed to fail effort to privatize Social Security is so he will have something to talk about other then Iraq and Terror. He is so comfortable saying the word "security" that it was natural.
