a stand up comedian came into work today and ...bought one of his own dvds lol???

Similar but very different story. Worked in a auto supplier factory and had temporary workers who would be there a few weeks at a time. So at break time people are in the cafeteria/break room looking at a tv that was in there (for meetings and such)...well playing on that tv was a home made sex tape dvd of two of the temps that were working there! They brought some DVD's in to sell to people and the woman played it on the screen as a sample! 

Needless to say they were escorted off the property!

I am sure that their life choices led them to temporary jobs. I never saw the action so I can't say whether it was worth the $$$ though!  This was almost 20 years ago, way before it has become as "common" as it is now, not long after the Pam and Tommy Lee one was released. Definitely caused a stir in the plant!

As if the world didn't despise them enough already. No respect at all.

OMG! A student did the funniest thing! I had to pretend to be cross, but I was trying so hard not to laugh!

He commandeered his friend's computer for a while and changed the auto-correct settings in Word so that every time he wrote the word "gatsby" it was replaced with, "ya mum."

So he kept going, "What the HELL?! My computer is buggered, what is going on?"

And he tried changing it to "Jay" the character's first name, and it would say, "ya sister"

"I think I've got a virus! What's going on, how come I've got a virus?!"

And his mate just sat there with a concerned look on his face. He only gave the game away when he asked stuff like, "Why have you said my mum is selling bootleg alcohol?"

:lol:

The Disney Concert Hall is the most beautiful Frank Gehry designed building. 

The Experience Music Project is the ugliest.

How old are the kids you teach?

We played a really funny prank on our buddy in college. Four of us were in a lecture hall together, and one had to go to the bathroom. One of my friends took his laptop, put on a hardcore adult film on pause, turned the sound up to the max, set it to play when the laptop was opened again and then shrunk the window so it was hard to see and thus closed. Our buddy had the most panicked 15 seconds of his life after he opened his laptop as the entire class stared at him.

That's pretty funny! :lol: 

That class was 16-17 year olds. So about what you'd expect.

Oh I’m sure he does, don’t get me wrong. But the idea of being embarrassed like that or indeed of embarrassing another like that makes me squirm inside

I think that’s just a difference between men and women. Most guys will tell you that one of the highest levels of intimacy between male friends is the ability to make fun of one another. I really can’t see a group of women doing that to one of their friends. When I tell this story to other male friends, the typical response is laughter followed by someone saying, “I should do that to friend X.”

Lets say our hero has done a fair amount of day drinking.  At home hero makes a vodka tonic, being out of gin and whisky.

If a couple of days later, hero finds less than half a lime on the cutting board and discovers an ice cube tray in the fridge, is it possible hero had more than one vodka tonic the night in question?

This has always been my understanding (although I really don't remember where it came from).  I've always thought one should hang the horseshoe above the door (or wherever) with the open side up to "catch" the luck or, as you say, not let the luck fall out:dunno:

I thought the opposite. If its open side up the luck escapes into the sky, if its open side down its sort of pointing at you as you go in and out a doorway.

The CO2 shortage here is possibly going to affect crumpet production and I don't think I'm okay with that. 

It also greatly bothers me that cider production may be impacted. I've been partial to a cider of an evening lately. 

Boo you unfortunate coincide of factory closures/reduced production

A CO2 shortage?? How can that be? Has global warming been stopped in its tracks? Please elucidate me.

A lot of the plants that manufacture it (for use in things like beer and soft drinks) are closed for maintenance. Apparently this often happens in the summer, but this year an unusually large number have closed at the same time.

Huh. And here I was thinking plants produce oxygen, not CO2.
