Ok, you win the crown jewels of Youtube with that post. I still need to finish the take down of F&F, but the Tested was spot on for an excuse, the memes did a fair job, JO's obsession with wanking executives was funny, the Legos™ were surprisingly good, and ClF3 is utterly terrifying.

So, I'm going to dig in to the rest of the F&F video... and deal with my ClF3 nightmares later.

Speaking of F&F, here's an interview with the screenwriter.

I know! Which is why I didn't just post a link. I took the time to inform you what you were clicking through to see.

My whole thought on the issue is this: If you love those parts so much why'd you have someone hack them off you? WTF?

Apparently you didn't read the description of the video. Which also makes the "jewelry" the tiniest of amounts less weird. (FYI, had nothing to do with loving "those parts so much.")

Gotcha, maybe I'll go back and check that part out. I don't often read the descriptions. Most videos are self-evident in my experience.

Cool.

Sounds like an awesome job, as in the kind that isn't really a job. At least until the TPS reports are due.

I've seen the movie once. I was in a new position and the manager sent out an email. At the end, it said something to the effect of "Remember, TPS reports are due by Friday morning" or something like that. To make it worse, the guy I was working with had been there for a while and didn't know what those were, so he too was like WTF is that?

Cool manager. I like Mike Judge's work, it's never Oscar worthy, but it's nearly always funny.

Interesting.
If I hadn't started to familiarize myself to (although m68k) asm last week, I would have propably skipped this.

Also I wonder if his technique would allow to help "dump" CPU instructions for emulators for example.

Pretty funny. Seems difficult to sustain as a comedic trademark.

Also, never troll people you live with. It's just bad form.

Cool. The things I wish I learned. :(

Seems like Nintendo had done an excellent job until the spectacular failure. I think this is the first real world example I've seen of don't roll your own crypto.

I'll check out the other videos over time.

I like how it was the fugly one who buzzed her. Thing is, at least the US version is about getting a show if you win. She already has the show, and obviously people would pay to see it.

Seems standard practice. I wonder if his donors got tired of it or why he's targeted and not others.
