The Week Of The 29th To The 4th

Wow, today I only woke up to four emails, and two of them were two separate comments for here that didn't get grouped together for some reason. That's the lowest I've woken up to in a while. But I am used to waking up a little later than this, after most of the spam. Anyway, here's your weekly round up of well, last week. Enjoy!

Tuesday Was about how there had been a victory for the internet as the EU declared that an ISP was NOT responsible for what it's users did with their connection and were not allowed to filter copyrighted material. This was a very good day in the fight against the evil dickery that is internet censorship. Seriously, you complain that other countries, like China, have it, don't let it happen to your country too.

Wednesday I asked for some help with one of my cats who insists staying out in the cold weather. In the end I got her a cat bed, she seems to like it. Now I just need to sort out my own bedroom window so I don't wake up with pneumonia.

Thursday I talked about the comedian Jimmy Carr, and how he has landed himself into trouble by making a joke that's implied to be about disabled children. He defended his actions, saying that disabled people are normal like everyone else. I wholeheartedly agree. In comedy, nothing is sacred, and everything is permitted. This is how it should be at least. Read the post for the full rant, I'll spare you from having to read it here.

Friday I tried to talk about the "evil" of internet piracy, and how it's actually not that evil, but seeing how Generally Disgruntled made a more reasoned out argument than I did, I'm not sure how well I did at that.

Saturday Was pictures of, or related to, Skyrim. I'm cosidering trying to extend the width of the blog post area to accommodate pictures. Please note if I do, the posts aren't getting smaller they just look it. I'm totally not overcompensating.

Sunday I posted a video of Jimmy Carr's most offensive joke routine, in which he hoped to find the most offensive joke. Most, if not all commenters agreed it's not that offensive really.

Well, there you have it. Another week down, another to go.

  2. @R.gers I still wouldn't go as far as to say I'm a brony despite watching every episode and having a poni folder on my computer. But I'm glad you liked it, hope it went well for DWei when he shared it with his GF. I just couldn't resist posting it lol.

  5. Four is your lowest? What's your highest? I usually wake up to at least one unread email, but sometimes as much as seven.

  6. I seem to have less emails too. Or maybe it's just coz I'm online more now that I get them there and then and so there's less to answer in the morning lol

  7. @Fang I once woke up to over 20, and my highest is over 50 but that was a few days.

    @Hazel That sometimes happens with me too :)

  8. A lot of comedy is really funny because it speaks the truth. There are no limits!

  9. @Electric Addict that is why nearly all comedy is funny lol, but thanks to some people comedians are less willing to be risky and edgy and really prove that nothing is off limits.

  10. The Evil of internet piracy stuck with me the most. Oh and the cats as well. Actually reverse that. Cats first. Then piracy. hmmm...no that's my final answer.

  11. @MRantrhope Here here!

    @My 2 Pesos It was indeed, both for me, the internet, and pretty much everyone.

    @Copyboy I can't decide between the two either, but I think if I absolutely had to, I would say cats.

  12. As always, I have to side with the 'offensive' joker. It's just how I roll.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @ABFTS Well then keep on rolling! I feel kinda dirty now.

  14. @Interwebs Fails Not least because I was gracing it with my presence.

  15. Oh yeah. I barely remember watching that Jimmy Carr clip. Good god I was drunk...

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Generally Disgruntled Really? Would never have guessed.

  17. The Jimmy Carr one was my favorite I think.

    And yeah, my comment count really died during the weekend but my view count skyrocketed. Odd.

  18. Somewhat a diary of your daily musings..

  20. @DWei That is kinda odd O_O My views have been diminishing but most of my traffic isn't coming from a site reloader anymore, maybe someone has started using one with you.

    @Heaven I know, right?

    @Tim That's what this place has slowly turned in to.

    @PhilO Yes she did, but she does know to come in if she should, so it's kind of okay.
