Out of the Blue

I'm on my backup DSL connection, as something is amiss this morning on the BlueTower's super-fat cable modem, which does not seem happy with the prospect of uploading anything. This backup connection is only needed a few times a year, but it certainly is nice to have when problems occur.

Play: Super Mind Dungeon.

Dear Blue,

Your site is faster on the back-up line.

Ps
That is unless you have returned to the main pipe.
Pps
Anyway things have never loaded faster.

Good evening.

You should have had the cellular peptide cake, with mint frosting, instead.

Well in that case we're done here. Warp me to halifax. And get me four glasses of apple juice.

Are you for Panda rape?

Statue of Liberty picture seems to have the lightning striking behind it and not on itself, as stated. Seems pretty clear.

Also, I just got to see that mystical update where only the OOTB shows and the rest of the page is blank! I feel like I've found the Ark of the Covenant or something!

You didn't see what you saw. The Ark of the Covenant doesn't exist. It's best to put it out of your mind and move on...

No! Nooooo! I know what I saw! I'm not crazy!!!! It exists! I'm telling you all, it exists! YOU CAN'T SUPPRESS KNOWLEDGE FOREVER! THE GENIE IS OUT OF THE BOTTLE!!!!
