Boring job, Interesting Location 2

I have always loved the pictures of these guys at work on the great skyscrapers in the US, but I still cant figure out whether they are smart for choosing such amazing locations for work, or stupid, seeing as death on the job is surely more likely!

Silly Coins: Cool but too big

While at my friends house during the week I noticed that he had somehow become the proud owner of both €10 and €20 COINS.

The €10 coin is about the size of a regular five cent coin and the €20 euro coin is about the size of a 1 cent coin (aka teeny tiny), however is it extremely cool due to that fact its made of 99.99% pure gold!

I did actually find these coins pretty cool until I had a little gander on Wikipedia and found that Austria have beaten us to the "novelty coin crown", it seems that last year the Austrian mint unleashed fifteen €100,000 coins upon the world... The picture below displays its true absurdity.

Christian group to boycott... "Slutbucks"...

Seeing as I am short on time due to exams (last tomorrow!!!) and haven't talked about Starbucks for a while I thought I would copy and paste this press release from U.S. - based Christian group that call themselves "The Resistance".
Their little rant is in relation to the recent reintroduction of the old Starbucks logo on merchandise.

Starbucks has recently introduced a new version of their logo which features a topless mermaid with her legs spread, which has caused outrage from a nation wide Christian media watchdog organization. The Resistance, with has over 3000 members nationwide, is boycotting Starbucks across the country saying their new logo is inappropriate.

The Starbucks logo has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute, explains Mark Dice, founder of the group (Christian Watchdog). Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves, Slutbucks.

Do mermaids even have legs? These guys have too much time on their hands.

Just do it...

Reminded me of some advice given by Grand Master Rowan over at the fortify blog, discussing a particularly novel presentation style:

Borrow liberally. If you have seen a good way of presenting an idea using this medium, borrow it, adapt it, use it. Sure, over a million people have seen this clip of Demetri on YouTube, but that leaves 5,999,000,000 on planet Earth who haven't

Smart as a Fox

Despite what I said about studying in the last post, study got a little more interesting today when a fox decided it would be a novel idea to set up camp right outside my window. After alot of banging on the window the fox gave me a look (see above photo) and proceeded to go back asleep. With that procrastination over I will now return to studying

Study is...

So boring I made this slide in powerpoint, took a photo of it and uploaded it, ahhhh procrastination
