"may find the Holy Grail in the Castle of Aaargh."
"What?"
"The Castle of Aaargh."
"What is that? He must have died while carving it."
"Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't bother to carve 'Aaargh' - He'd just say it."

"I'm falling off a pie"?

How do you live in Sydney and not be able to swim?

CSB: if you replace 'pier' with 'dock', 'end' with 'missing boards', and 'checking facebook status' with 'looking the beautiful Hawaiian scenery' I pretty much did the same thing a couple weeks ago. Not fun.

Could have been worse, she could have been attacked by a shark.

Status a moment later: "I am so wet right now"

I once took a bollard to the bollocks while gawking at old buildings in St. Louis.

Not being able to swim is just weird. At an absolute minimum go and learn to tread water.
 
2013-12-18 01:00:55 PM
See, this is why all FB posts should require pier review.

In Montreal some chick walked between metro cars while checking her phone and got squooshed.

It just proves you can never have a true "smart phone" until they have the ability to kick their owner in the crotch.

Saw a girl almost knock herself out once by walking into a half open door while I was in high school. I laughed hard.


/and I wonder why I never had a girlfriend back then

What falling off a piers might look like...

We really need a Darwin tag.

I drove to work for decades. Then, I had a job where I took transit and found out why people's purses and phones get snatched all the time. Everyone's got their nose in their smartphone and are not looking around them. It's a small miracle that the train tracks were not littered with bodies. That's probably due to the braille-like tiling near the edge of the platform.

Darwin missed.

So it would a pier.

At an office I was at there was a automatic glass door and a glass wall. The summer intern they had was busy looking at his phone and walked right into the glass wall. It was a nice loud "THONK" sound followed by an "Ow".

I'm so looking forward to the carnage of google glass.

I'm sure Apple will have an iPier app soon.

Also, was she... "♪ ♫...going for a walk, not the after dinner kind... ♫ ♪"

1. I can't believe the Fark headline is actually straight from the article...
2. There's an Android app(Can't remember the name right now) that uses your camera to shoot a background(At least while you're texting), so that you can actually SEE where you're going on the phone screen. I think it's great for situations like this one.
