Overnight Open Thread – Payback - (genghis)

You knew this day was coming. You were warned. You didn’t listen. You weren’t prepared.

So let’s examine the ways in which your life sucks.

Exhibit #1: You are not this guy, and never will be:

”MUKILTEO, Wash. (AP) - Boy-faced and grinning wide, Yevgeniy Timoshenko celebrated the richest victory of his short poker career in April by grabbing four thick bricks of cash, holding them high over his head. The money was just part of his $2.1 million jackpot. The 21-year-old, who lived in Mukilteo with his parents at the time, smiled as the cameras covering the Five Star World Poker Classic at the Bellagio in Las Vegas beamed his image around the globe.”

However, at least you have this in common with Yevgeniy: You live with your parents. Though he did actually move out at some point. Dream over.

Exhibit #2: You’re reading a popular and edgy political blog at the moment, yet looking at a picture of a kitten. Yeah, that’s really gonna’ put you on the fast track for some kind of project manager position when the boss walks by and sees this on your screen. Never mind those nervous glances he throws your way when you two are at adjacent urinals. Those don’t mean anything.

”I WUV’S YOU!!!”

Tonight’s sponsor below the fold…


Oh holy shit. It’s another kitten. Don’t be surprised if a doily-shaped mouse pad shows up on your desk tomorrow.

”I WUV’S YOU EVEN MORE!!!”

But the worst part of all (for you): See the people in the commercial below? (It was mentioned last night). They’re getting paid to do that. Not you.

And no one seems to have solved the problem of the missing musical instrument last night either (unless someone did and I missed it). Look to the FAQ for the answer my friends…

"NO! Damn you, no! Please make it stop!" you scream as yet another kitten appears on your screen.
but this time with the added benefit/humiliating effect of being both an LOLcat and having a geeky Dune reference. Want more? At last count I have approximately 73 kitten photos along with assorted pics of rainbows, unicorns, Skittles and so forth. And those are just the ones I have saved and resized. Had enough? We can keep this up all night....
