more random stuff

This comes to you via Screenhead: if you want to know how to swear in multiple (and occasionally relatively obscure) languages, you should visit Swearsaurus. I am particularly fond of the Yiddish saying "Er zol kakn mit blit un mit ayter," which means, "He should crap blood and pus." or "Got zol im bentshn mit dray mentshn: eyner zol im haltn, der tsveyter zol im shpaltn un der driter zol im ba’haltn," which means "G-d should bless him with three people: one should grab him, the second should stab him and the third should hide him."

As you can tell, I like my insults to be VERY SPECIFIC.

By the way, the folks in New York came out a few days later and said that whoever said it was going to take three to five years to fix the A and C trains was smoking crack. More like a few months. Just in case you were worried. As Mayor Bloomberg pointed out, it only took a year to build the Empire State Building (really?), so why the hell would it take five years to rebuild a switch room?
