@yodelmachine My urge to fix your spreadsheet problem is instantly overwhelmed by my urge to make a witty remark about nose-blowing.

@yodelmachine Oh you answered that. Python's sets, or a unix shell's comm will do this for you. That doesn't make your life easier, does it?

@yodelmachine This is doable in a few lines of code, but the question arises: what happens to items in lists 2 and 3, but not in 1?

What's so civil about engineering anyway?

Venkman, Stantz and Egon (Spengler). Never forget!

The first couple of minutes of Obama's State of the Union address is basically him pumping his fist in the air going "U! S! A! U! S! A!"...

Anybody else got anything on these rumours that Morgan Freeman still hasn't been discharged from Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg?

@alphabetania It is wrong. "A number of us" is a collective noun, and gets treated as a plural, with "want to go".

I think you and I can both agree that we gave this "conversation" thing a try, did our best, but it was just not meant to be. Let's move on.

I think the cashier at the liquor store has memorized my credit card number.

Aww, nuts. I'm a Virgo again. Back to high school. Damn you, Ophiuchus!

@swimparallel A suggestion for happy thoughts: Re-read your own blog post. You should be pretty proud of the Kat described therein.

@thebenbrooks THANK YOU. Just had that in Dexter 4x07,

How is this joke still being plagiarized, copied, stolen, filched, pirated, repeated, retweeted, reused after so long? http://is.gd/LUyKV4

My friend @MatthewGair wrote a song to help us get through 2011... http://is.gd/kuXfn - it's workin' so far!

@Jessabelle2o7 Oh god. I'm that guy, aren't I? I'm so sorry...

@Jessabelle2o7 Being in South Africa, I can't help any more than to point out that if it's Irish, it's "whiskey" (with an 'e')...

Sniveled like a little girl when Vincent van Gogh realized his legacy at the end of Doctor Who 5x10. Might need to watch Rambo a few times?

via YoruFukurou

Yes, we all realized back in 2001 that "resolution" had two meanings, and made that joke, albeit about a smaller resolution. Let's stop now!

@swimparallel You and your bunneh are awake too early for 2011. This does not set a good precedent.

via YoruFukurou in reply to swimparallel

Alright, 2011. Let's do this. My New Year's resolution: make sure it's *nothing* like 2010.
