I feel like boycotting any theater that does NOT have these.

Just...ah, Hell, you know what I'm doing.

You, sir, are the one who insisted on using the phrase. Do it!

I'm hoping that he'll release the full image. Either that or someone else will go ahead and set up a script to grab all the images and stitch them together.

Amp, aren't you on the programming pathway? Why don't you use that as a little real-world project?

If you check his forums there's a few ways to get better views of the whole thing.

I used a torrent of all the images (most are actually non-existent sky/ground) and knocked up a quick html page to load them up: though even zoomed out to 20% in Opera still makes for a big image.

The full image is 165888 x 79872. As a general rule you're not going to see images with those dimensions. Any image editors that opens it is probably more lucky than specifically coded for such stress.

I adore that. Scots are both fainting lilies and sausage-hurling menaces, apparently.

He is alleged to have behaved "in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear and alarm in that you did act in an aggressive manner, shout and throw a black pudding across the room".

Neither John Cleese nor Stephen Fry could have made that any more delicious and hilarious than it is in the official record.

There's just something surreally incongruous about life's dirty little realities being described in legalese. Even funnier when you hear them being described by a plummy lawyer.

The butterfly in Britkid TV show Tree Fu Tom seems to be called 'Areola'.

Just heard there was a 3.4 earthquake in Dallas of all places. Did that giant TV out at Cowboys stadium fall?

Heh, maybe?

I don't know what I ever did without a smartphone, but I never want to go back. Just throwing that out there.

I'd like to welcome this girl to all of your nightmares. Also, possibly FireAza's dreams. In both cases, she's sure to stick around.

It's true, there was one. I had to do a little TLC on some old mostly unimportant boxes that got hit with a power surge because of it. No big. I had to be told it happened when I was commenting on the fact that we'd had a brief outage of some sort over the weekend.

At least the Corgi isn't disappointed with the reader.
