My commenters abused by 1938 media

Heheh.

“I didn’t call him fat, lazy, or stupid,” Loren Feldman says on his video show before telling my commenters to relax. Among other things. Proves that if one insult is worth a link, two insults are worth two. He says he doesn’t care about links. Yeah, me neither. I just search Technorati for all the classic insults and I find stuff like this.

Made Maryam and her brother crack up.

“Who is that guy,” Maryam’s brother asked.

He’s funny, but I’m more partial to Robert Gale’s blog (I spent the afternoon today with Robert). Why? Because instead of posting long, boring videos telling me my videos are long and boring Robert posts videos of ships driving into bridges and other weird and stupid things. My favorite is a video of cars being driven behind a fully-powered 747. Robert says the one that got the most traffic is a video of someone eating a 6-lb burger.

We watched part of the Chelsea/Manchester United game at a local pub (they tied, it seemed everyone was interested in this game, which was billed as one of the biggest soccer, er, football games since the World Cup), while sampling Australian beers, and he told me that his Google ads are bringing in a really good addition to his income (he runs a Web design firm in Newport, Wales).

Gale was wearing a shirt from Threadless, which impressed Maryam (they are having a sale right now and have a bunch of different shirt designs).

  1. Talking about Cricket, while you’re over here you can catch up on some your cricket education if jet lag is still hurting. Starting at midnight tonight you can see England try and not lose to Australia. Cricket’s kind of like baseball but better and lasts 5 days!!

  3. I’m really embarassed you showed your wife. ;)

    My videos are not long and boring
    They are short and stupid.

    The abused word is a bit over the top. It’s not like I touched their keyboards inappropriately, or smacked their monitors around.
