My printer just tried to kill me!
I had to print some stuff for a meeting, so I changed it to Fast Draft, the printer is right above my head on the upper shelf of my computer desk and the paper came flying out and damn near took my head off! :crazy:

8. It's 119% classic.
It would be 120+% but that clip is missing the scene that follows where Samir does a windmill. My favourite part of that whole movie.

5. You think I should call a priest and have it blessed?!
of course once he got a load of the sin cloud hanging over my head he'd probably refuse to enter the premises :P

9. Nah, just put it in a B-29 and drop it on Niigata
They'll get the message. :evilgrin:



Ooooh! Is it wireless-capable? You could have it printin' on the way down, and that way they'd think it's a propaganda bomb! :D

12. Death by Papercut...
They really shoot the pages out on those types of settings. Next time, duck! Glad you were able to dodge that attempt on your life. Could it be gremlins?

13. The paper
They say the pen is mightier then the sword.

But only the paper knows
that without its existence,
the pen is but a bundle of color.

Beware the paper,
for it holds the color,
it disperses the thought and
it retains the memory.


and yes, I went out drinking tonight.
