The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy.
Porno for appliances or is that porno for wheats and grains? I’m so confused. Or is it a murder mystery. The anime featured of each character make me dislike this comic, but the humor wins me over.
Well put and well said. October doesn’t know and doesn’t care. But is the Asker any better off than before he asked the question? Probably not. So he should have showed more apathy and let his ignorance reign supreme.

I could hardly love this staircase using classic literature as a motif anymore, but if they had included The Hobbit I would have been even more impressed. I guess it isn’t really a children’s classic, but to me it is. How about Winnie the Pooh? Regardless, this is way cool and I think climbing these stairs would refresh your mind even as it tired your legs.
“Goth vs Gay – Even in the animal kingdom it is a cold war.” Wait…what? I’m sure the gay bird and the goth bird will get along swimmingly at some point. My question is where is the emo bird.
Oh, wait. Here is is.
Internet Memes are usually annoying, sometimes funny and infrequently poignant. This new Internet Meme is a little of both and I’ll throw in a pinch of thoughtful wisdom to this meme recipe. What do you think? Does the Lamenting Lemur have what it takes to become the the stuff of meme legend?
Don’t be so humble, you are not that great
Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
The lonely become either thoughtful or empty
Lost my mood ring. Not sure how I feel about it.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain
Happiness would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness

Zing! Take that, men. The mood swings, changing hormones, and mastery over worldly affairs of the rolling pin obviously make women much better suited to make decisions of national importance. This is what happens when you let your wife take the typewriter into the kitchen.
Why didn’t I think of this? And, how many more of these can we do? Did somebody make a picture for Apple Martin? Audio Science Sossamon? 50 Cent? Eminem? Where are all those pictures, you crazy Photoshop wizards?
He looks so sad. But all the little Ice Cubes look pretty happy. What’s up with that? Don’t they know they’re going to melt?
I have nothing snarky to say about this. If i found this tea set, I would buy it. No hesitation.

Also, “Fitter, happier, more productive. Comfortable. Not drinking too much. Regular exercise at the gym (3 days a week), getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries. At ease. Eating well (no more microwave dinners and saturated fats). A patient better driver. A safer car (baby smiling in back seat). Sleeping well (no bad dreams), no paranoia. Careful to all animals (never washing spiders down the plughole)….”

“What do you want from me?” “We want Beggin Strips.” “Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?” Banana technology abused by dogs with jowls. Stay tuned for your local weather.
Have I mentioned how much I love allaboutchuba?
First off, how amazing is this photo?
At first I thought it would be fun to find the origin of the phrase “burst my bubble” but it’s not readily available in the fifteen minutes I’ve allotted for this post. Plus, the stuff I found on a random search was SO much better. Since I can’t find the photographer to give him or her some credit, I submit this answer to the question “What does the phrase ‘burst my bubble’ mean?” The answer was given by General Smashingtor on yahoo answers. Thank you, General.
So much soap spilled over the soil of earth, and finally when the last bubble floated above the puddles of his comrades and enemies, he just though…. I won… I WON!
Then some random human came up and popped him, completely destroying him and ruining any good feelings he had, because he was now dead.
So when you burst someone’s bubble, you ruin their fun, or something similar. You ruin/stop/impede on something they are doing that is fun, exciting, or you could even be correcting them.
BUT DON’T FORGET THE HISTORY!
Every now and then, you come across something on the internet that makes you smile, laugh, or simply scratch your head and go, “wha?” Recently, we ran across this wildly fun infographic at the Fifth Gear fulfillment services website, and just felt like we had to share. This infographic talks a little bit about online shopping and a whole lot about people with more money than sense…
A few things smack you in the face, and a few things make you wonder…would I buy that, if I had the money? For instance, $3.26 for The Meaning of Life (not the movie, mind you, but the actual meaning of life) seems pretty reasonable. Sure, the author/creator/designer of this infographic puts that online purchase in the category of “most ridiculous,” but if you actually learned the meaning of life after paying that $3.26, how ridiculous would that be? Not very, that’s how much. There are websites that offer hints on figuring out the meaning of life, like one (now available in Spanish!) that gives you some advice on your “pre-meaning of life” journey, and then attempts to explain the meaning of life, telling you explicitly what joy there can be in uncertainty. Thanks, guys. Thanks for helping me try to figure out what MY life means to ME, but what about what LIFE means?
Another guy named Bill wrote a whole different website on how you will soon understand the meaning of life…if you buy his book. It’s now available in Russian. Thanks, Bill. Most of his material is available on his website. Maybe the meaning of life can be found by reading what other people tell you what the meaning of life is. Or maybe you can buy it for $3.26. And it’s straight up downloaded into your brain like the Matrix.
Also in the “Most Ridiculous” category is Justin Bieber’s hair. I’m going to go ahead and have to agree on this one. It is sort of ridiculous to buy someone’s hair on eBay. How do you know it’s really theirs? If it really is, what do you want with it? The story goes that the Biebs gave a lock of his hair to Ellen, and Ellen put it up on eBay, and all the proceeds will go to charity. But somebody still spent $40,688 on a lock of Bieber’s hair. You KNOW a teenybopper doesn’t have that kind of scratch, so what creepy Bieber Stalker bought that?
The only other thing I’ll say about this is, Play-Doh cologne? Are you serious? All that would accomplish is making the entire second grade hungry. What? Didn’t your second grade class get the Play-Doh taken away because they kept eating it? No? Nevermind…
Oh yeah. And moon real estate. Honestly. I think they’ve sold every square inch of the moon about a hundred times over, haven’t they? At least it’s cheaper than naming a star. The funniest thing about buying real estate on the moon to me is the website’s tagline. “Nothing Could Be Greater Than to Own Your Own Crater!” I can think of about a million things that could be greater. Knowing the meaning of life would be one of them.
Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.
Sometimes mistakes are the best things that can happen.
