You call that funny!?

A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator:
"My friend is dead! What can I do?"
The operator, in a calm soothing voice says:
"Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead."
There is a silence, then a shot is heard.
The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says:
"OK, now what?"


I'm not certain how many of you follow the news in any serious way, but those of you who do have no doubt picked up on one of the most important and revealing research of the last few years. I am, of course, refering to the LaughLab experiment. This experiment, in which, if I recall correctly, 2 million people took part, was set up to determine that holy grail: the funniest joke in the world.
The startling results can be found above.

But this is not all. Research has been done in the field of what people in various parts of the world find funny, with some remarkable results (and amusing examples, of course). Furthermore, favourite jokes for several countries have been determined and posted. You may find them all at www.laughlab.co.uk/home.html.

Now, is it me or is that American top joke not funny at all? As opposed to the Belgian one...;)

Logs, Logs, Logs

Yes, I know, I know, not many new quotes again this update. But, on the upside, at least it didn't take me so long to put them up. ;)
But seeing as there are so few, I thought I would endulge myself in something I wanted to do for a while now and show what I consider a golden oldie. I came accross this one while messing about with a search program I wrote for Windows XP (because, frankly, the inbuilt search program could use a guide dog, and I don't mean the annoying little puppy 'helper'). It certainly takes me back a few years. More than two and a half, in fact. These logs chronicle the downfall of one 'Rabano'.

Now, Rabano was a newbie, and a rather annoying one at that. I was actually there when he first entered, along with some friends of his. In fact, I found them so utterly lacking in entertainment value that I left. It was at this point that Rabano proclaimed "Good riddence" and sent me off with a virtual kick in the rear. Since I had not said a word to any of them, I assumed this to be a misplaced joke and responded acvcordingly with a flung tomato, a smiley and the announcement that I was now really gone.

It is generally my policy not to quote fights, or anything that I feel might make other people look bad. In this case, though, I guess I can make an exception, as what happened a few weeks later truly was exceptional. Exceptionally stupid, and remarkably humorous in hindsight. I present to you... The Rabano Logs.


It started with spam. Rabano's spam.

The sun has set in all parts of the world,
One annoying quibble started three,
Controversy from the three burned like fire throughout the woods,
Near all have spoken,

One tried vainly for peace,
The war is not won yet,

I'm not even sure if I should respond to this, but...
I always say I'm gone. Then I look around for a few minutes to see if there were any late posts for me, to which I then reply before going for real, signified by "*REALLY GONE*". I was being NICE to you. I responded to your remark cause I didn't want to leave you without a response.
If that's an insult I'm sorry I bothered.

Rabano> First of all, what reason DO you have to annoy me. Second of all, for some odd little reason annoying everyone ELSE in the process is not taken very well here... Odd, no?

I wasn't gone for long. I'm very sorry Hud, if I annoyed you in any way. I was trying to annoy Arno(with good reason). And then Big city shows up, so I lurked a bit before really leaving. Those two don't have a brain cell between them.

Now, you have to remember that I only exchanged ONE post with this guy. Looking back, I particularly love the words "I think a truce is long overdue. It is only second to the concept of starting a fight, and then valiantly ending it because you forgot what it was about. It almost goes without saying that Rabano returned an hour later under a different name, insisting that he was someone else. That was when he learned that one can be identified by IP.

I also have some logs of two days later, when he tried to convince someone that a friend of his was masquerading as him and being 'very annoying'. We just had to keep a close eye on his IP to make sure it was him. And yes, it was the same IP.
But enough about my self-indulgence. What I remember most about this is actually how terrified I was that people would see me as a troublemaker. After all, To most of them I was new, because I had only recently changed my online times rather radically, was a newbie for the second time, and I was the one with a fued, right? Only later on I noticed that these logs were actually rather funny.
It's hard being a newbie. I'll tell you that. ;)
