2002-01-08 09:50:34 PM  
what the hell, tad poles don't even have eyes.
2002-01-08 09:50:44 PM  
I mean, they reported this thing in BBC Sci-Tech three days ago: Scientists 'create artificial eyeball'
2002-01-08 09:50:53 PM  
Eye had something to say...nevermind.
2002-01-08 09:51:04 PM

2002-01-08 09:51:49 PM  
Five years ago, my wife tore me another asshole.
2002-01-08 09:52:16 PM  
and if they did make an eye for a tad pole how would a 1 mm eyeball help us? that would look pretty creepy.
2002-01-08 09:53:24 PM  
Looking forward to them growing me a new brain...
2002-01-08 09:54:48 PM

On the subject of eyeballs, can anyone tell me how the furry piece of poop with teeth is that everyone uses in photoshopping? The brown guy with big teeth and arms and legs. TIA
2002-01-08 09:56:08 PM  
Why do you need two assholes, Grivas?
2002-01-08 09:56:09 PM  
I mean, WHO, not how.
2002-01-08 09:56:51 PM  
Isn't that just like progress, growing eyeballs years after Jarts are made illegal.

short for "Thanks in Advance". Can you tell me who the furry poop dude is? He appears in every photoshop thread.
2002-01-08 09:59:49 PM  
has anyone told Sammy Davis Jr?

oh. too late.
2002-01-08 10:00:40 PM  
That wierd brown freaky thing I think is called "domo kun" or something like that.
2002-01-08 10:01:14 PM  
I had a telepathic conversation with a cow once. Moo was the only word we had to use.

Private Eyes
they're watching you
they see your every move
2002-01-08 10:03:44 PM  
No it's not too late! Sammy Davis Jr. is still living as an outgrowth on Bigfoot's Ass. Thanks to the same kinda crap that's making these scary little eyeballs.

Tampa International Airport! WAFI

Who could ever forget Parts: The Clonus Horror?
2002-01-08 10:05:32 PM  
Eyes? Where?

That is truly weird, AeroSquid.
2002-01-08 10:05:47 PM  
Thanks Aerosquid.
I was just about to give up and go to bed.
There's hope for my Farkin around after all.

<not related story

actually <b>Hytes</b>..your telepathy thing reminded me that a long time ago, Johnny Carson had a lady who claimed she could talk to cows on the Tonight Show. The cows werent on the show...she was..the lady...(ahem)...(ok) she says that the cows told her they didnt mind us eating them, but could we kill them in a nicer way. I think she later founded Peta.

2002-01-08 10:09:35 PM  
I shoulda known it was Japanese! That domo kun is some farked up shiat!
2002-01-08 10:11:36 PM  
TPA is the code for Tampa airport, actually.

Good thing all those Bible-thumpers are so opposed to stem cell research, cloning, and what-not. It may actually help discover treatments allowing blind children to see, help heal massively burned children, etc.

Yep, good thing.

Now where's my checkbook - I heard Jerry Falwell needs more money for prostitutes.

Eugenics is the future. Gattaca was right.
2002-01-08 10:15:17 PM  
Thank You Japanese Science! GREAT JUSTICE!

Astrocat: What the hell was that drivel about?
2002-01-08 10:20:02 PM  
One of my favorite halfway house memories is of three of us taking a new kid to Taqueria Tapatia. We convinced him that sesos was a type of scrambled egg. Once he had his mouth full......

Ouro, I can't remember Clonus cause I never saw it.
2002-01-08 10:20:04 PM  
Wow, brand new eyeballs and hookers in disneyland. What will the Japanese think of next?
2002-01-08 10:22:27 PM  
From Astrocat's bio: The more I learn the more I realize how little I know - and most of it is wrong!
2002-01-08 10:24:34 PM  
Wow, AeroSquid. I'm in a transom!
2002-01-08 10:25:56 PM  

Can you send me some of that thru the mail?

Well. A bloody eyeball with pulsating nerves, a throbbing severed ear, an amputated finger that extends itself and a rotating bloody heart.
2002-01-08 10:38:37 PM  
Oh, this is going to be a fun thread
2002-01-08 10:40:29 PM  
Sounds like a good time to me...

2002-01-08 10:42:50 PM  
Oh, for crying out loud, why are the organs getting felched from the thread?

Dick Fitzwell: I just noticed that. What in the hell is going on? Either the offending moderator is a big fan of Caverns of Blood and doesn't like you hotlinking their images, or she's just a big wuss.
