Burning Safari is a (brief) short worth enjoying, despite the nihilistic humor. ^_^; An excellent demonstration of the art of animation, regardless of the medium - in this case, CG.

From wolff_slaven, Playboy cited as the source: "British couples cause $612 million in damage each year while having sex. During the act, 33% of couples break something, and 10% even file insurance claims, citing smashed lamps, ripped curtains and, of course, busted beds. It's not just objects taking the brunt of the rambunctious sex: 41% of couples report carpet burns, 33% pulled backs and 12% twisted ankles or wrists." Ow.. yes, a carpet burn would put a bit of a kink in the action, and not the fun kind. O.o;;

And I thought I'd post the final episode (28m, 43MB) of this season of Have I Got News For You, which turned out to be an especially good example of the show, endowed with rich ribbons of snark.

The Satan Pit: d'ood!

Channel 4 in the UK has long had a strong sense of graphic design, and their new theme of composing the logo "coincidentally" is held through in this new ident, set in Tokyo. (45s, 5MB)

On fruits of the rose family (including cherries, apples, plums, almonds, peaches, apricots, and crabapples), Cecil Adams has this to note regarding their toxicity: "If you've been munching on seeds for years and have never felt any ill effects, you can safely continue to eat them in similar quantities without worrying. Keep in mind, however, that one gluttonous binge will put you away forever. Sub-lethal doses of cyanide gas are detoxified and passed out of the body rapidly, so it's impossible to slowly poison yourself over a period of time. Symptoms of cyanide poisoning are excitement, convulsions, respiratory distress, and spasms. Another warning sign is death, which can occur without any of the other symptoms."

.. which led to this usenet exchange ..

BB: But he's worried about the apple cores. It's rather easy to eat the core and not eat the seeds.

CI: But the seds are the best part of the core!

GG: Does that make awk the best part of the kernel?

JH: Only if you eat sedless greps.

Ow, ow, ow. ^.^

*grin* Sorry about that. =:)

(See, where on TV would you find that level of punnery?)
Nowhere, I think... :)

I love the timing at the end especially, wrapping it all up so tightly. Don Martin would've been proud. ^_^

Got a spare time machine? I'd like to pick up an HD-DVD of Ratatouille.
Hahah Playboy is weird like that....you open up the magazine and inbetween nudie photos of chicks with big fake knockers, you have random articles and facts ....it's a weird reading experiance.
Heh! I've heard about that odd blend.. never actually read an issue, though. But I recall there've been some outstanding short stories and articles of political discourse therein.

Now, if there were a furry version of that.. say, combine Genus Male with articles by Jon Stewart and Al Gore.. :-9

Okay, I have another thing to do when I make my billions. ^_^ That, and find out what a certain fur looks like in a sleek latex catsuit..
O_O

Wow... whatever happened to "No Sex, Please: We're British?"!!!
I suspect, like much of British life, it's to do with the weather - got to have something to do in those cold winter nights. ^_^

Hmm.

Which presumably means Canadians must be veritable wild rabbits..
Yeah, I was about to say you're talking to the wrong person about cold winter nights :P

Though right now we're happily enjoying our three months out of twelve of warm weather :P
British couples cause $612 million in damage each year while having sex

But that's $10 per person per year! (whether they have sex or not ;-)

Canadians must be veritable wild rabbits

Well, let's just say that not much is going to happen if it's too hot inside. Mind you, that's what A/C is for. ;-)

sedless greps

LOL, puns! :-) BTW, Seeed called. They have your other 'e'. ;-)
One of my most burning questions about The Satan Pit was: Where did the Doctor get a tow rope to attach to the rocket ship the escaping crew was on?
The AA, of course. =:)
The Auton Association? :P

I think you Brits need to stop using The Klingon Kamasutra as a lovemaking guide.

Hee! Now that has to count as a bit of a faux pas. ^_^ Did you explain how it happened? =:)
Um... that would have been a mildly complex story involving myself and the semi-gf of the bed's owner. ;)

I stacked a bunch of books underneath to reinforce it and got the heck outta Dodge. ;)

(Actually, I think I did confess some years later, but it was a spare bed anyway, and I left out some details... ;) )
British couples... lol.. the only time I ever broke anything having sex was a bed in England. Are beds just weaker there?
