Threaded discussion board for inane chatter.
Lunch Penguin time!
I had a panini and some chips, because I’m boring and predictable. Yourselves?
I had a lamb jalfrezi and a samosa. Usually I have sandwiches on a Wednesday, but Sprog ate all my bread. Every cloud etc..
I don’t normally post click bait links, but this Buzzfeed article of mesmerizing gifs is sublime. The ferrofluid on the screw is ace:
That helmet is pretty cool, the youtube video was even cooler!
One of those number 1 when you were born things just fell into my awareness, this time with movies.
I got Pale rider (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzQ7D_pJYwk), which is most notable for having the Channel 4 news theme as the music.
It was Coming Home for me. Disappointingly for a year that brought us The Deer Hunter and Dawn of the Dead.
I got Stakeout. I don’t know what that is but I am wondering why it isn’t Robocop. It should always be Robocop.
I got mutherfuckin’ Robocop! Yeah!
Looking at the Top 100 Song’s for that year is basically just a list of awesome classic songs, except for Star Trekkin’ by The Firm: http://playback.fm/year/1987/
The BeeGees dominated the top of mine. Bizarrely, the Smurfs also get a look in.
Signs I either married a psychopath, or am a great influence on those around me:
Wifey: Did you know Lettuce has a chemical in it that makes you sleep?
Me: Do you know what else has a chemical in that makes you sleep?
I prefer to think it of it as you simply married another 5punker, as that or chloroform is the exact answer one of us would give
Werd up monkey huffers! Friday today!
We’re not using this fancy board enough so today’s thread is now here.
Legendary character actor Mark Strong has send me a fax asking me if I have any hat advice for him. I told him I’d need to talk it over with my creative team. So go on, draw a hat on the man. He’d also probably appreciate a new body.
Beautiful. He will be pleased.
Now then, hamster felchers!
I trust you are all well. Didn’t we have a fred for giving away Steams? I’ve got Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition looking for a home. Also got all the DLC’s, if anyone wants those.
We did, it is here http://www.5punk.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=54005
Managed to become a camp northern radiation related superhero yet?
I continue to attempt massive radiation doses, however the Health & Safety types thwart me at every turn. I did manage to sneak into one of the stores recently, which sent my electronic dosimeter into a bit of a tizz. Beyond that, I remain disappointingly free of any mutation or super power.
To be fair, I’m not entirely convinced that becoming Gay Man! as a superhero is ever going to be particularly effective.
You mock, sir! However, there will come a day when your eyebrows become slightly bushy, or you might need advice as to what curtains go with *THAT* carpet, and I shall be there; in a lavender-scented, pink flash! “Moderately Radioactive, Bummer Man, to the rescue!”
I live in fear of your Polonium Quiche!
Sun-nings! How am you all?
Missed Saturgames as I was out doing a WRESTLE. How was it? Much get played?
We did a bit of BACON, a bit of sharking and a bit of HOTS. We beat real people in HOTS!
That HotS game was so close too. We were behind the curve all game then ninjad their core.
I’ve been keeping the lunch penguin tradition going at work by having a daily competition with the web developer sitting opposite me. He invariably wins ’cause I’m eating healthy stuff at lunch nowadays. Salad, sweet potato wedges, grapes and a yoghurt. What did you chaps have?
I had an américain prepare (like steak tartare but as a spread) sandwich, a salmon with dill yoghurt sandwich and some mysterious pineapple bits I found in the back of the fridge.
Nothing yet. DAMN YOU TESCO MAN!
I had pastrami sandwiches and a custard donut. Both hurt because my whole oesophagus feels like it’s swollen up for some reason. It’s very distracting, but the donut was still worth it.
I had Pad Thai Green Chicken courtesy of Mr Tesco. Was OK if a little small considering the size of the box. Tasty enough though
Hello Monday. Hello.
It’s cold and wet, and I’m the only member of the webteam in the office. How do?
‘Ning! Bug fix day today in aid of an internal show and tell today, followed by client demos tomorrow and Weds. Little bit if stress but it’s all good.
Today I am turning my garage from a carefully planned delight, and an utter mess, into a compact, packed up act of cleanliness.
Werd! Today was hot and sunny here, but less hot and sunny then the past few days. So I went back to the animal park I like so much and finally found that damn tapir.
I also watched a turtle enjoying a wash (hope they used TURTLE WAX LOL) and a clever chicken.
(spot the chicken)
Jesus christ that’s a big turtle!
Something’s wrong. I blame buzz.
Don’t worry, just use plenty of lube and ease it out slowly, and next time use something with a flanged base.
I didn’t do anything. No body saw me do anything. You can’t prove a thing!
Werd up bummers. Also sky up and sun up
I am sweating my fucking tits off.
It’s like tatooine out there. I’m sure I saw one of the hutts passing by earlier with their baby carriage.
Has Belgium got an obesity problem similar to the UK then?
To be fair, it could very well have been a melting person.
Werd. I just had a walk through the park to Sainsbury’s. It was nice, but now I’m sweating and covered in bugs.
Air con up and blinds up in my office. I don’t have a problem with this. Hopefully later cold beer up.
Polytunnel murder resume. Unfortunately some dickheads concreted the thing in, and randomly tied opposing legs together.
It is again very hot today so try not to move too much. What is your favourite summer tune? I’m currently liking this one:
Aww, media tag doesn’t work here.
I think the html embed code does
Today it is wet, and I am waiting for a nice man from the council to observe my stairs falling down.
Alas, he’s not turned up yet, and I’m bored.
But I have been watching Guy Martin take his accent to visit other accents around the country, and hit things with hammers.
That looks fun, but dirty forrens can’t watch it. He certainly seems to have very 1800’s facial hair.
I suggest youtubing him, he’s rather pleasing.
No good youtube links, but I found an alternative.
Oh no it’s Wednesday. Oh. No.
What are you guys up to?
ono. Im going in to work today to have yet another meeting about how fucking silly it is that they still havent found us a new office. 7 months now. 7 MONTHS.
Also, I shall be mostly being hot and sweaty.
Today, I will apparently be melting, so that’ll be fun.
I have now melted in a car a bit.
For my next trick I hall melt while in the loft. yay.
I discovered yesterday that my car’s aircon needs regassing, so I have shared in your meltyness.
Protip: Run your aircon occasionally even when you don’t need to. it lubricates the system (so it dies slower) and you know when it goes to shit, so you don’t die like a police dog.
I will brave the heat and buy things for I must eat. Then I might make a monkey in photoshop.
I went outside.
Oh, the smilies are different!
Woo! I made them the same!
Do tags work here?
I will be attempting to stay still and remain under my air con unit for as long as possible.
First day of the month means I have a bunch of reports to write. I haven’t started them yet.
Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It’s the only way to live
Werd! No idea about if this is doable but would a ticker affair for the disco that sat underneath the other forums not be a good way of integrating this??
It would! It’d probably more coding skills than I have, but I’ll look into it. Might be possible to flag new WP comments on the forum with the integration.
Alright cunts? Up to owt interesting today?
No, but I did buy mead. Mead is a bit disappointing.
Mead always reminds me of other crap wines, like sherry, whose only redeeming feature is that they contain alcohol.
It’s quite allright with some spices in since the spiciness offsets the sweetness, but this one is not as spicy as advertised.
There’s a pretty nice one around here, they use heather honey, so it’s got a nice sharp finish.
But it’s still mead, and mead isn’t as good as it should be.
I am doing nothing interesting today. This weekend I helped Sprog with a project though. She had to make a model of a London land mark, and she chose one of the lions at the bottom of Nelson’s column. It’s no trebuchet, but I’m impressed with her handiwork.
Awesome! Lions are fun.
I have to decommission the trebuchet in the not too distant future, mainly because moving that thing ~20 miles is rather inconvenient.
Took a few days off work to enjoy the sunshine. Bought some new troos (old ones had a crotch-hole in them from cycling too much), sunglasses (old ones fell apart) and had a haircut (old one was too long).
Now I might have a lovely little cycle down the canal and enjoy the weather some more. Woo!
But I’m FJ!
Can’t seem to sign in as anyone else.
Even signing in with my credentials, it logs me in as DP
Erk. Looks like by setting forum admins to WP admins it logs all admins in as the admin account. Which is linked to my account. I should be able to fix it by removing the link, but it won’t let me drag the blue line with my phone.
Should hopefully work now. Apparently admins are like Highlander in WP.
Wonder how much we can break this…
Welcome to the all new and… degraded 5punk discussion board. Go forth and talk bollocks!
E-GADS. It did not work!
Testing this battlestations Chevron capability, Sir.
Aim the CHEVCANON! FIRE!
