2003-03-31 09:41:38 PM

2003-04-01 01:21:48 AM  
Damn. I feel so left out. No virus, no funny font...
2003-04-01 01:23:13 AM  
I think I'm going to be a useless waste of bandwidth and post just to see if it'll filter me in jive or anything. Yawn. Yeah.

The Haxoring was funny at first, now it's just annoying.

2003-04-01 01:25:44 AM  
How the hell do you get "hamsters" from "guinea p1g5"?
2003-04-01 01:26:11 AM  
"Giant virus" reminds me of saying "jumbo shrimp".
2003-04-01 01:26:24 AM

2003-04-01 01:45:50 AM  
I loved Muppets From Space Disco13. Watched it W my daughter and expected it to suck but I loved it.

And Guinea Pigs and Hampsters were mentioned if you bothered to read through the whole stupid 1337 sp34k p4g3.
2003-04-01 01:46:10 AM  
I got the Hamster Haxxor page too! But I haven't gotten filtered yet.
2003-04-01 01:47:07 AM  
Confabulat, I've seen very relatively large bacteria (visible size. almost of their cell a sort of sack containing chemical food) referred to as "giant microbes". Analyze that one.
2003-04-01 01:47:16 AM  
This is kinda like the dialectizer.
2003-04-01 01:49:23 AM  
I think whoever posted this article accidentally hit "Cool" when he meant to click on "Scary", unless he's some psychopath.

The old muppet show episodes were hilarious, they were actually written to be pretty entertaining to adults too. I mean, can you imagine having Alice Cooper (at the beginning of his career, back before shock rock became commonplace) singing Welcome To My Nightmare on a kids show today?
2003-04-01 02:10:01 AM  
Anyone see the link on the sidebar?
