Ohhhh man, I have a lot so I'll say my top three?
The final season of Chuck, the third season of Reaper (which may or may not happen), and young justice.

ogi: My worst habit would be procrastination.

Elicius: Steampunk Spaceboat, of course.

reptail: I play some games, yea. I'm waiting for the game that will really make me want to buy a next-gen system like Kingdom Hearts 3.

ogi: I wish alchemy had stayed in style.

Elicius: Dexter, The Walking Dead, Family Guy, Chuck, Sons of Anarchy, White Collar, Warehouse 13, Community, Parks and Recreation, The Office (US), Fringe, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Law & Order: UK. Merlin,Transformers Prime, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Thundercats (2011), Young Justice, and Grimm. The only movies I'm really waiting on are Sherlock Holmes 2 and The Avengers.

ogi: The last thing I listened to was 3 Miles by The Answering Machine....wasn't that impressed.

The bit when Blackberry finally update the web-browser which has been becoming less and less useful, and more obsolete....and it's actually worse. The bit, after years, when Ubi announce that BG&E2, if ever made, will be on the next gen of consoles. I worry that I'm far too forgiving of my friends for there to ever be a final straw when it comes to them. The moment when, having been filing the same piece of metal for the last fourteen hours, with a deadline in an hour, you slip.

The bit immediately preceding the deep breathing, the calm thoughts, and the sound of rain.

A little bit too much thought I think, 'cause this question really interested me, but I'd probably go with Ægirsday (for Poseidon and Neptune) or Lokisday (for Caelus and Uranus) something along those lines anyway. More work probably needed on that. Poseiday and Caelusday sound better, but don't really fit with the theme I see. I guess there's a mix with the translation to English. Thursday sounds quite a lot more like Thor'sday, of the Norse, than Thunor of the Old English, whereas you can't deny Tuesdays similarity to Tiw'sday, where the Old English rune's use is more than clear.

I think considering all that, my best choice, personal choice, would be "Caelusday" just 'cause it fits the easiest with the present set of days we have. Would probably come betwixt Sunday and Monday. Damnit I put wayyy too much thought into that. Great question.

I'm not really sure, if I'm honest. I've nothing that I link in my mind with a huge surprised feeling but, as usual, I can assuage my irritation at being unable to recall an answer....with a list! Surprises of sorts:

My mother moved to Turkmenistan,
My grandmother got cancer,
My sister got pregnant,
I got a job at Cartier,

Most terrifying of all, I moved to London, my most hated city in the UK....and love it here.

Humm. I have to admit I don't really listen to music to relax. I find it really hard to zone-out, I always end up either singing along or tapping out the beat. If I had to put on something, fun to my head, I'd probably loop one of the two Turin Brakes albums I have from college.

ogihci wrote:What are you watching at the moment?

Depending on how literal you're being the answer is either A video of my ex-housemate, dancing to the song "Poison", taped secretly by my other ex-housemate Or another list which is easy to populate from a list of links I have:

House,
How I Met Your Mother,
New Girl,
The Big Bang Theory,
Grey's Anatomy,
Community,
Suburgatory,
Fringe,
Once Upon A Time.

UK shows: Misfits, Merlin & My Transsexual Summer.

I watch Wayyyyyyy too much TV.


The mobile phone network has been subverted by the government! They can hear each and every word, read each and evry prly splt txt, reach into your pocket and snuff out your web-connectivity! Thankfully, the rebellion is hard at work! They have created a new underspace transmitter with which you can communicate instantly - your only problem is that you must camel-flage it into something to carry it around with you! What do you choose...?

If you could go back in time and give your 5 year old self one physical object from present day that would have no effect on the rest of the world (no explicit foreknowledge for the sole intent of manipulating factors for personal gain, ex. stock information, smart phone schematics) what would it be?

Locate Anyone With Mobile Phone Tracking Systems

Postby zanethresher on Mon Jan 02, 2012 2:48 am

In this article, I will be talking about mobile phone tracking systems. Like the name goes, it can track and locate anyone from anywhere. All you need to do is install the phone tracking software in your computer system. With it, you can locate anyone from anywhere through their mobile phone.

A crate full of Avamys (Veramyst in the US). Fluticasone furoate is the only reason I can function as a human, and 'though my allergic rhinitis didn't really kick into full force until I was about 13, I subsequently felt like I had Manfluenza from then until I was about 22. So yeah. That!


Of the (non-food) products you use on a daily basis, which do you think is the best, and why?

Well I'd have to say maybe the computer?
It let's me browse the internet, do art, and just derp around in general, but it's a major double edged sword...or at least for me. It sucks up all of my time, and I spend more time on it than I should.

It's actually pretty empty today, so I'd say it's probably 8 empty egg shells in a 9-egg-carton - but yesterday it was a week-old cheesecake that had just started to go mouldy, which was nice =)

ogi: My fridge is kept pretty much clean so at worst it would be an apple that's a little too soft.

E-G: I'd interview Mr. Fantastic and ask him why he doesn't just devote a year to solving all of society's problems (global warming, world hunger, exhaustible energies, etc.)

ragna: I don't listen to dance music that much anymore, but every now and then some song comes along that just gets me dancing in my mind. This time it's Studio Killers: Ode to the Bouncer.. I know the Q wasn't specifically of dance music, but that's the song that's been in my head lately anyways.

Q: If you suddenly started hearing a narrator, that narrates everything you do, in your head, what would you do? (i.e. Reptail is sitting at his desk at work, writing to internet forums even though he knows that he really should be doing his job. He is furiously trying to think of a question to ask on a boredom game thread on Everything Jake online comic forums.)

I'm not sure why, but my previous posts seem to have gone AWOL. Apologies if these are repeated.

SSJRagnarok wrote:What new (to you) song have you been really into lately?

At the time it was Shiny Toy Guns - "When They Came." Great song and really boosted my productivity at work for some reason. (Although the version on YouTube really irritated me, so I didn't link it. Grrr. Passive-Aggressive. Grr.)

reptail wrote:If you suddenly started hearing a narrator, that narrates everything you do, in your head, what would you do?

If it was Emma Thompson, but she wasn't predicting my death, I'd probably just live with it. It would be interesting to see what she said was going on in my head and in my life. Sort'f like if I were actually observant, but without the effort of having to go around observing stuff all day. Cool beans.

SSJRagnarok wrote:Who is the last person you ever want to see again?

Can't remember my reply to this one, so can I say Jedwood? Do they have enough brain cells to technically even class as a single person?

reptail wrote:Are you regular or goofy?

While I don't skate any more, when I did I was goofy, but since I've started boxing, I can't imagine not leading with my left foot instead, so I'm regular, I guess.

Having just received a bespoke ring in the post today, I can't help but wonder;
If you were to commission an item of jewellery; what would it be? What'd it look like? Why?

E-G: I can't think of anything. Perhaps the One Ring, the kind of non-evil version of it.

ragna: Around 11:00 pm. But that's just because I've been living without tv, computer and internet the past almost three months. Once I get everything setup again it'll probably slip towards 1 am again.

E-G: Well I don't actually have that much experience on dying. Usually it tends to be one time deal, though I guess some just turn back when they see the bright white light. But I would think that suffocating might be pretty bad, or drowning.

Q: Have you ever done half-silent-hello-thingy? Meaning that when you see someone you perhaps give sort of nod, and perhaps mouth the word hello without actually saying it. I've noticed that I sometimes do that at work with persons that I don't know, but who happen to be working in the same building. I'm just wondering whether that's just me or do others do that as well.
