Grave Danger

There is something seriously creepy about watching people get buried alive, maybe it’s a underlying fear of mine that hasn’t come to the surface.

It was mildly comical in Kill Bill Volume 2 when Uma Thurman got buried, mainly because she dug her way to the surface within minutes, but in the 2 part finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s season 5, directed by Quentin Tarantino (hence the Kill Bill reference) it’s much more real and scary.

Nick Stokes is the unlucky CSI who gets buried in a perspex box with nothing but a gun and some glowsticks. George Eads who plays him does a very good job of portraying someone in that situation, a little too well really. When he first realises the severity of his predicament he starts to scream… a scream that chills me to the bone.

Grave Danger parts I and II are probably the best episodes of CSI ever made, and probably the scariest too. Very tough watching, even for a diehard CSI fan such as myself.

At The Office

Ten Top Things That Sound Dirty At The Office, But Aren’t

10. I need to whip it out by 5.

9. Mind if I use your laptop?

8. Put it in my box before you leave.

7. If I have to lick one more, I’ll gag!

6. I want it on my desk, NOW!

5. HMMMMMMMMMM, I think it’s out of fluid.

4. My equipment is so old it takes forever to finish.

3. It’s an entry level position.

2. When do you think you’ll be getting off today?

1. It’s not fair… I do all the work while he just sits there.

Migrating The Easy Way

I decided to upgrade the hard drives in my server last night. Probably should’ve waited till the weekend but at least it’s done!

I started out with 3 drives…

0 – C: – 20GB Seagate

1 – D:/E: – 60GB Western Digital split into 2 partitions (45GB and 10GB)

2 – H: – 160GB Western Digital

And I had 2 80GB Western Digitals to go in there.

What I wanted to do was to transfer everything off disk 1 onto one of the new 80GB drives, then wipe disk 1 and transfer disk 0 onto it. This would increase the free space on D: and E: from 45/10 to 60/15, and more than double my C: drive which now has a lot more room for expansion (going from 9GB free to over 40GB!). The existing 20GB Seagate would be removed from the computer and left spare.

I took all the hard drives out and worked out where I wanted them all to go, then plugged everything back in again. Then I started Acronis MigrateEasy.

Next Tory Leader?

So now we’re down to David Cameron and David Davis.

I really hope Cameron wins, from what I’ve heard from him he sounds like a much better leader and a good candidate for Prime Minister.

I didn’t bother voting for any party at the last election as I really didn’t feel like any of them would do a good job, and I really didn’t want Michael Howard as Prime Minister… the guy looks like something out of a horror movie!

If David Cameron wins the leadership contest, and if he can pull the Conservative party together, then we may actually have a party worth voting for.

A Fuck For A Duck

A farmer sent his 18 year old son to town and, as a birthday present, handed him a duck. “See if you can get a girl in exchange for this,” he said.

In town, the lad met a prostitute and said, “It’s my birthday and all I’ve got is this duck. Would you be willing to…” “Sure,” she said. “I’m sentimental about birthdays. And besides, I’ve never owned a duck.”

Afterwards, she said, “Do you know, for a 18 year old, you’re quite a lay. If you do it again, I’ll give you back your duck.”

“Sure,” said the boy.

When his pleasurable work was through, the lad started on his way home. While he was crossing the main street in the village, the duck suddenly flew out of his hands and was hit by a passing beer truck. The driver of the truck felt sorry for the boy and gave him $2.

When the lad returned home, his father asked, “Well, how did you make out?” His son replied, “Heck, I got a fuck for a duck, a duck for a fuck, and two bucks for a fucked-up duck!”
