Perhaps the most beautiful music video I've seen: Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You into the Dark (FLV). So deeply sad, hopeful, wistful, melancholic, and loving.

mycroftb just introduced me to the I Can Eat Glass Project: 'The Project is based on the idea that people in a foreign country have an irresistable urge to try to say something in the indigenous tongue. In most cases, however, the best a person can do is "Where is the bathroom?" a phrase that marks them as a tourist. But, if one says "I can eat glass, it doesn't hurt me," you will be viewed as an insane native, and treated with dignity and respect.'

Make random Sam & Max stuff, win stuff! And there are new S&M goodies to peruse in Telltale's store, including a spiffy b&w sketchbook, "The Age of S&M", and a Max skull & crossbones shirt.

'This is Steve's first Sam & Max book in about 10 years, and it's full of never before seen concepts, doodles, and other Freelance Police-related works of art. Some of our favorite parts are the inside-cover sketches of Sam & Max, along with notations, that Steve made as guidelines for the people doing the animated series, and the list of lines and scenarios that the censors cut from the episodes. (Example: "Please do NOT show Max biting down on a battery while standing in water.")'

In the US government's tireless efforts to protect the American populace from foreign threats, its citizens are now free from the risk of Vegemite.
A former coworker of mine collected odd phrases in foreign languages. One which I remember in Russian, translated phonetically to the best of my memory, was

"Ya val shabeek.
Schneemie schvoi leefcheek."

Which translated to, "I am a magical being. Take off your bra."

He successfully used it as a pick-up line with a Russian girl, too. He was quite the character.
*giggle* Definitely a better line than "was your father in the military?" ^_^ I wonder if opening lines like that are another casualty of the age of IMs and virtual realities? Difficult to tell - I've never really gone dating, and never out somewhere randomly hoping to *cough* meet someone.

Have you heard any particularly bad lines? ^_^
Back in my college days, I was chatting with a woman who, at a local bar, was approached by three people over the course of an evening who stated they were FBI as part of their pick-up line.

If you want more bad pick-up lines, look no further.
