  • Re: The things people do for money...

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"][quote user="blakeyrat"]some of those GPL projects (like Firefox)[/quote] Not GPL, MPL. But your point still stands.

  • Re: Ben L's been posting to Quora

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]well, no, I've never had to pay a dry cleaner to remove 'yiffing' stains...... a slightly-less-soiled kitsune outfit.[/quote] The fact that you know what a kitsune outfit is disqualifies you from being allowed to make furry jokes.

  • Re: Cash machine WTF

    One of the Cheezburger websites (There I Fixed It) has a picture of the opposite problem--an ATM that's mounted several feet too high. ATM Fail. ETA: stupid braindead software doesn't automatically format links if you're using Chrome.
