Finally got myself a PlayStation 3 (I’d link to the official site, but it’s totally retarded), and bought a bunch of “pre-played” (i.e. what you and I would call “used”) games along with it. One of the games I picked up was Resistance: Fall of Man, but the guy at the store claimed that it wasn’t really all that good, and that if I really wanted to “experience the PS3” I should get Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune instead, and I vaguely recalled reading about it after seeing a Penny Arcade strip about the sequel, so I did.

There’s the little things, like the sheer inanity of reader comments, which I’ve stopped reading entirely, or referring to tortoiseshell cats using male pronouns, or the videos. Lolpics are funny because they take a single shot out of its context and make it out to be something it isn’t. Videos may be cute, but they aren’t funny, because they just show cats doing what cats do.
Then there’s pictures like this one. Yeah, yeah, the cat ate the pumpkin, very funny, except the gag only works because the cat is morbidly obese, and that’s not funny at all. We’re not talking “a little extra weight around the waist” we’re talking “will die an early death due to a series of complications which may culminate in major heart or liver failure”. For insert your favorite deity‘s sake, people, get a fucking clue. If you’re too thick to understand something unless it’s on YouTube, watch this video, and put your cat on a diet.
Statoil har fått ny logo. Nå er jeg plutselig usikker på om de driver med oljeutvinning, mobiltelefoni eller kunsthåndverk…
