Want.

Would never wear it.

But still... Want.

No kidding. Think of the power you could call down with that little baby. :antipasta:
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Yes, it's nerdy and Beatles-obsessed. Much like me. Fank ye, ye welkum.

The Onion wrote:In today’s fast-paced world, it seems like just about any guy can accidentally kill his girlfriend at virtually any time. Here are some easy strategies to avoid inadvertently murdering your significant other:

Be sure to avoid firing a gun in the general direction of your girlfriend, regardless of the situation.
Shy away from doing anything that may cause your girlfriend a massive amount of blood loss, such as beating her, stabbing her, or shooting her multiple times.
Consider performing a task that has a low risk of accidentally murdering your girlfriend, like giving her flowers, taking her to dinner, or letting her continue living and breathing.
Remain generally cognizant of the fact that three gunshots to the head and torso will, in most situations, fatally wound a person, and that this fact will, therefore, likely apply to your girlfriend as well.
If there is a locked door in your home and there is even a remote possibility that the person you’re currently dating is behind that door and could be immediately killed by the bullets you fire at the door, try not to fire a gun directly at that door.
In general, if there is something that you think might cause your girlfriend to stop living, don’t do that thing.

As far as I can remember, I have never attempted (and I do not want to tempt fate here) to kill any of my girlfriends. Unless you include my predilection for buying my wife balloon flights for her birthdays...dammit they're so safety conscious these days!

However most of my girlfriends have attempted to kill me by: tripping, shouting, sending me to play Sunday League football with her mates 8 foot boyfriend, persuading me to get a dog and various other methods.

The Pitch Drop Experiment. And no, it's not about de-tuning a guitar.

I thought it was going to be about dubstep.

World's smallest guitar. About 10 microns long (the same size as as red blood cell), and plays notes in the 40MHz range, but still...

Apologies for the double postage:

The house across the road from the Westboro Baptist Church's compound is now... A GAY PRIDE CENTRE!

Have a look at the tasteful paint job:
