As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

4-21-08  Archives
Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

you know they can make dead people into diamonds now? I don't have a link, but I'm pretty sure...anyone else can find a link?

I want to be made into diamonds and have my kids wear me!


Just checked my tire pressure...lets see how this next tank of gas goes....


I remember that diamond thing. Meh. That fails because it's kind of creepy, but not overtly so.

Have you heard about how you can scrape a bone sample from your partner and grow a bone ring in a dish? That succeeds because it is completely creepy.


I like the vile of blood necklace thing. That's pretty creepy and cool.


Not too long ago I expressed my funerary wishes on this website, and I'd like to update them. Previously, I had decided that my cremated remains should be split into three equal parts, and a) shot into space, b) sprinkled over the pacific coast, and c) thrown in the face of mine enemies.

Currently, I'd like my body (after whatever appropriate organs have been recovered for transplanting) to be dipped into a vat of cryogenic nitrogen, and then shattered into ground-chuck sized pieces, freeze dried, mixed with the appropriate bacteria, and composted. (It's Swedish.) Please plant a nice shrubbery on top of me. Ooh, or perhaps a fruit-bearing tree, maybe apple. Then you can make pie and throw it in the face of mine enemies.

peeingdog: I think that's the strongest case against creationism or intelligent design or whatever they're calling it these days
peeingdog: If there was a infallible creator, don't you think he would've... you know, done a better job?
sunkist: If you really do believe in God...
sunkist: then you would know that yes, God did make us perfect, in his own image...but sin started making it worse and worse
peeingdog: how can you look into some guy's mouth who needs total reconstruction and tell me god exists
peeingdog: WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW??
sunkist: Sin has done it, not God.
peeingdog: sin, and caramel corn, no doubt
sunkist: Well...
sunkist: for that particular guy...
sunkist: he has severe acid reflux disease.
sunkist: Wiped away his teeth.
peeingdog: So you're telling me the reason I need to floss is because I have original sin?
sunkist: yup, in a sense.

This weekend I found the only IKEA product that I think is worth owning: JONISK. What's neat about the lamp is that the base isn't flat; it curves along with the rest of the orb, so it can rock (RAWK!) gently. Also, the bottom is made of machined aluminum, which is unusually substantial for IKEA.
