Islands in the stream, that is what we are

Last night on TV3 news the final feel good item was a fluff piece about how in Scotland 16 girls managed to fit into a phone box. I couldn't find anything about it to link to, but here is a small piece that announces the attempt.

In my opinion they're going about it all wrong.

If you really want to break that record and fit a lot of people into a phone box, you need to use dead bodies. Just imagine how many you could fit in if you didn't have to worry about the subject's breathing. It'd be no problem at all fitting body parts into all the little nooks and crannies.

I checked Sarah's Guinness Book of World Records (no link to their website, it is pure shit) and there is no rule around using live people for the record attempt.

On another subject, I had a nightmare last night that the RIAA was suing me for downloading music off the Internets.

They had brought a representative charge against me. The song they chose as the representative download was Islands in the Stream by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. Just imagine the world knowing you'd downloaded that piece of musical history!

I checked and I don't have the song anywhere on my hard drives, but I reckon I'd easily volunteer to be one of the dead bodies poked into a phone box if I did. The shame!

The Photo
I was showing someone last week how cool off camera flash is. When I saw the photo I quite liked it. All I did was straighten it (I took it without looking through the viewfinder) and crop it. Tada!
