In which eeknight lists the reasons he could own a BMW Z4 M Class Coupe:

1. I could get out of it at a con dressed as Darth Vader and the car would totally match.
2. Answers the question "What would Cthulhu drive?"
3. 330 hp that can rev seamlessly to 7,900 rpm is sufficient to crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of their women.
4. Watching it drive past, even James Bond would say "killer wheels, dude."
5. Germany needs a reward for not starting any wars in the last 67 years.
6. Elvis might rise from his grave for a friendly test drive.
7. With the THX certified sound system I won't be able to hear women shout "sorry about your dick."
8. I've been a really good boy this year.
9. Driving to Sarasota to visit parents at holidays will take less time than the check-in and security wait at O'Hare.
10. The hood looks like it's at a really comfortable angle, Chats.

Extreme Caroling?

scirocco is feeling the holiday spirit:


In the northern Europe of the late Middle Ages, gangs of young men would engage in ''wassailing,'' a cross between Christmas caroling and home invasion. The gangs would visit wealthy homes, often in disguise, and sing songs that threatened violence if they were not invited in for food and drink.

In agrarian societies, practices such as wassailing served as a critical safety valve, giving people at the bottom of the social ladder a release that would keep them in line during the rest of the year.


WHY DID THIS STOP?! I WOULD SO DO THIS.

JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS, GIVE US BEER AND MEAT

In response to my hating on Coldplay among others...

mencc1701:
The secret to writing a new Coldplay hit:

1) Pick out four or five notes on the piano, put them in order so they sound cool, then repeat them for 3.5 minutes.

2) Go though your U2 collection until you find a tune that fits. Sing it over the piano line, only at half the original tempo.

3) Write some lyrics that rhyme, and sound like they might be thoughtful. Be sure to include at least one word you can stretch out as long as possible.

4) Give it a title. Preferably something thoughtful, yet easy to understand. Do not use words that are more than 1 or 2 sylables long, so as not to confuse any music executives who may be nearby.

There! You're now on your way to your first Top 40 hit!
