SASF v.8.12

Erg. It's been a busy week at work. Derned work, keeping me too busy to get my blog on. *grumble*

So, here I am, almost noon and I'm finally getting this up.

My apologies to those on dial-up – there are a LOT of pictures in this post.

What Do You See?

Take a look at this picture:


Did you see a couple in an intimate pose?

Apparently, research has shown that young children cannot identify the intimate couple because they do not have prior memory associated with such a scenario. What they WILL see, however, is the nine dolphins in the picture!

So, I guess we've already proven you're not a young innocent child...heh heh. If it's hard for you to find the dolphins within 6 seconds, your mind is indeed corrupted and you are probably a pervert! LOL

Here's help... look at the space between her right arm and her head (the tail is on her neck) and follow it up. Look at her left hip and follow the shaded part down - it's another one. There's another oneon his shoulder..... see them now?

By the way, in case you're wondering, I couldn't see them without help. *snicker*

Busted!

This is a simple but funny little game. You have to see how long you can get away with staring at this girls rack without being busted. It's called "Lust for Bust." A bit tasteless, but amusing nonetheless.

Farktastic

Fark.com is a great place to find links to funny and interesting stories, pictures and such. One of the things I enjoy most there, however, is the Fark Photoshop contests – there is at least one each day.

Contestants are given an original picture (and sometimes a theme) and they use their creativity and mad photoshop skillz to manipulate the picture. Some of the results can be absolutely hilarious. I participate in these some times under the Fark name celticcross13.

Here is the original and some of my faves from a recent contest:
Original:


Depending on the person’s photoshop skills, the entry can be anything from a very simple change, such as these...




getting a little more complicated…



Holy shit! It’s Christopher Walken!






...to a complete turtle extravaganza! A tribute to Cootera, perhaps? hee hee

I think my favorite, based on skills and creativity, is the Blues Brothers one...although I really like the ebay one, too, just because the concept is so funny. Which one is your fave?

From the HOLY SHIT Files

6 year olds in Japan taking subway to school – these people are INSANE. One little boy, referred to in the article, takes two trains in a 90 minute trip to school every day by himself. He is only 6! I can’t believe people do this. There is NO way my 6 year old would be going anywhere by himself, much less in a public transport system with who knows how many preditors and thieves who could prey on him. What if he gets lost? ...takes the wrong train? My answer to the question they pose – "are they too young?" YES!

Spamming the Spammer

Seems Mango has taken up vigilante style and is giving a spammer a dose of his own medicine. heh

"I hate Spam. Now, I’ve never had chopped, processed ham pressed into rectangular metal boxes. It’s probably ok. Anything with that much salt will no doubt taste acceptable.

I meant the other kind of spam. No, not the email kind. Worse. Comment spam.

Comment spam sucks. I am convinced it’s worse than regular spam. You don’t even get to laugh at how people spell v14gr4, or p.e.n.i.l.e e.n.h.a.n.c.e.m.e.n.t, or even pron. No. Just an email from movable type telling me I need to moderate a suspected spam comment.

So, not only do I get a BORING spam email, I then have to LOG IN to my other blog, then manually delete the offending comments and insert some new blacklist string so they leave me alone. It’s annoying.

I decided to do something about it.

This fuck decided to spam my blog with stupid gibberish and an html link. Now, I don’t allow links in comments without my approval, so I got a flurry of spam notification emails. Great.

I looked the fool up. I sent the following email (using my Hotmail account that just collects spam).

"Stop sending comment spam to my blog. I have a comment moderator, so your stupid litte script is not working. Sending 10 comments a day seems excessive, not to mention annoying. Knock the shit off. Consider this a friendly warning."

15 minutes later, I received a huge pile of comment spam.

So, I did what any good Christian would do. I signed him up for every bible quote, email porn of the day, weather channel and traffic update I could find.

I look in my inbox, and find 10 more spam comments from the same IP. But, with a twist.

Instead of HIS website, he sent comment spam to EVERY post listed with the following URL www.dontevercallmyname.com. Invalid, unregistered, but it seems as though I touched a nerve. So, I sent another email. It involved significantly more swearing.
I instantly received 128 comments in reply. The URLs (all still bogus) getting more and more threatening.

It’s go time.

Mango is not going out like that."

Attack!

Feel free to spam the shit out of him, if you’re so inclined. I hope he chokes on all of it. lol

Polically Correct Bullshit

You know, it drives me crazy when some band of idiots decides it would be a good idea to make a movie based on a book, but they change the story so drastically that it completely screws it up!

Well, here we go again...

Da Vinci Plot May Get New Twist to Placate Catholics

(From The Times)
So, if they take out religion, the Magdalene, the sacred feminine, Opus Dei, the sex ritual, the Priory of Sion... then, I guess they'll be left with a great car chase movie...

The film version of The Da Vinci Code is attempting to reduce the offence that the best-selling book caused to Roman Catholics.

Sony Pictures, the studio behind the film starring Tom Hanks and Sir Ian McKellen, is reported to have been so concerned that it has consulted Catholic and other Christian specialists on how it might alter the plot of the novel to avoid offending the devout.

Film officials have held talks with Catholic groups and other organisations despite Dan Brown, the author, insisting that “it’s only a novel and therefore a work of fiction”, The New York Times reported yesterday.

The Catholic League is calling for Ron Howard, the film’s Oscar-winning director, to include a disclaimer acknowledging that the movie is fiction.

The Da Vinci Code, which is being filmed this summer with locations including Winchester Cathedral and Rosslyn Chapel, near Edinburgh, is based on a novel that has sold 25 million copies worldwide. Among its more controversial claims is that Jesus married Mary Magdalene, a former prostitute, and that she bore him a child. This has been denounced as virulently anti-Catholic and a risible hoax.

The studio has been asked to consider whether the central premise — that Jesus had a child with Mary Magdalene — could be more ambiguous and whether the name of Opus Dei could be removed.

Condemnation of the book has been widespread. Last month the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales denounced it as logically and historically flawed. In March the Vatican appointed a top cardinal to rebut what it dismissed as lies, distortions and errors.

Sony declined to comment.


IDIOTS! Oh, jeebus, I’m not even going to go off on this one. I think I’ll just leave it at that. *grumble grumble*

100 Scariest

Along the same lines as yesterday’s post, my buddy Archmage pointed us to Retrocrush’s 100 scariest movie moments of all time. This is cool – click on the thumbnails and it will give you the details of the scene & what movie it’s from. …and yes, there is at least one moment from Silence of the Lambs in there.

man...

I hate to admit it, but I probably would've seen the naked chick before any dolphins. Even when I was a kid.

Don't ask.

Oh G-d, I saw dolphins. I need more porn in my life.

I had to really squint to see the dolphins.

Re: the Japanese kids taking subways to school...having lived over there for three years, and spending probably another 2 years of my life on trips to Japan, I'd like to respond. The rate of violent crime in Japan is so microscopic that it wouldn't even register on most Americans' sense of values. The subways there are also very well-kept, generally patrolled by local police forces, and kept sanitary. Lastly, most Japanese that I know are part of a cultural heritage that would assist a child in danger; although they have a lot of problems over there, there is a sense of communal responsibility. I'd let my kids take a subway over there, if I had any. The subways in America aren't the problem- it's the people on them. Cheers!

I could see the dolphins but they kept fading back to erotic couple. Bless my perverted mind.

Derek - we're doomed. heh

Brighton - you sweet innocent, you. *cough* lol

ESC - heh - I signed him up for several impotence & ED newsletters

Omega - thank you! I wondered if that was the case & suspected it might be. I know it's the people & it makes me sad, just like the 6 yr. olds mother said.

Boo - hee hee. :)

Omg - i saw dolphins having sex!

"Your father kept this turtle the only place he knew it would safe - up his ass." Christopher Walken from Pulp Fiction. Brilliant!

I keep losing the "Busted" game, but somehow I keep going back.

I'm gonna save the rest of the post for later!

Another great SASF! hehe you rule! we drool... =)

I saw both the dolphins and the sexy couple, but I saw the latter first hehe

the Bible itself has a few weird ideas in it, some would even say it fosters a belief in the occult and magick, not to mention how far it asks you to let your imagination run wild with unbelievable stories, who the hell censors that? If you're going to let religious beliefs rule the contents of your story, why even write the damn story in the first place!!

Oh, man, re-envisioning that scene from Pulp Fiction with a turtle...ew.

I'm loving the rack game though - albinoblacksheep has the best stuff.

One of my friends (whom I have long since lost touch with) had developed this automatic spammer to deal with Spammers. You would just type in that person's email, a fake email of your own, and it would crawl the web and sign the Spammer up for every mailing list it could find. That was back in 98, two hard drives ago. Wish I still had that program, it rocked.

Not only did I see a couple getting it on, hat busted game took up way more of my time than it should have :D

For what it's worth, regardless of it's "controversial claims" (which were stolen) I just think that "The DaVinci Code" is a terrible book. So, although film studios are hardly well known for artistic bravery and often do sell out beautiful books and stories in the pursuit of mass appeal, and that's a shameful and aggravating thing to do, the loss of the DaVinci Code's integrity isn't too big a deal for me. It's not that I find the subject matter offensive, I must stress. It's just that I think Dan Brown is an absolutely dreadful author.

They started off on totally the wrong foot when they decided to cast Tom Hanks in the lead role - the part was clearly written for Harrison Ford. As far as removing potentially offensive references (its fiction people!) - that's just about not losing the target audience in latin america, italy and so on - shame on the producers (but what d'ya expect).
Who's playing the part of Sophie or whatever her name was?

Damn... I only see SEVEN dolphins! Guess I'm pseudo-perv, eh?

And, um... well, I like the two-headed terrapin. Cuz, you know... two heads're better'n one.

Excellent SASF as usual!

I knew the dolphins were there but had to squint anyway :)

Celti girl apparently the researchers would be wrong. I couldn't see the dolphins so I asked the boys, and D man giggled and said "it's a naked lady mom!" Cam said "yep you can see her boobs" and he pointed them out to me! I don't think they asked any children they just assumed that they would see dolphins or maybe my kids are just little pervs!

Cali - you did? Now that's a creative imagination. lol
HA HA HA about the turtle & Walken. The Busted game can be habit forming.

Se7en - thanks! hee hee
No surprise on the dolphins. ;)

Julz - Pulp Fiction's another good one. You're right about albinoblacksheep. Oooh, that spammer thing could be SO handy!

Mike - thanks!

Owl - hee hee! Honestly, I haven't read the DaVince Code, I just hate it when they screw with books to make a film like that.

Cali - who cares about target audiences - what about the integrity of the story? meh.

Cootera - hmmm...I can see all 9. Pseudo? yeaaaah. I thought the two header was pretty damned cute, too.

Seamus - welcome back, beach bum. I'm surprised you could see the dolphins at all. LOL
