Out of the Blue

Okay, moving day is upon us. The latest understanding of the schedule is that we will be offline as of about 5:30 PM EST today, and will suffer with what's expected to be about "24 hours or less" of downtime. Of course, as Frans points out, these types of things tend to take longer than planned, so we should probably just hope the downtime will be close to what they are anticipating. As I mentioned yesterday, the mail server is being moved along with the whole shebang (apparently there are regulations against moving half a shebang, which is why you never hear about that happening), so mail sent here will probably make like a bad check and bounce, so feel free to send hate mail and other complaints during the downtime.

Link of the Day: Laid-Off: A No Nothing Production. Flash required. Contains adult language. Thanks Brann Mitchell.
Story of the Day: Pope to give Net his blessing. Thanks EvilToast.
Bonus Story: Man Eats His 18,000th Big Mac. Over 30 years he's consumed the equivalent of 14 beef cattle, 560 pounds of cheese and 100 gallons of Special Sauce, but does not suffer from high cholesterol. Thanks Chris Robbers.
Bonus Story II: Ronald McDonald statue recovered. Thanks Farch. Hopefully he didn't try to hang himself just because the guy in the previous story has actually missed eight Big Macs over the years.
Weird Science: Honda Unibox. Thanks .f00Dave and the ShanMonster.
Wild Science: Largest fossil cockroach found. Thanks Chris Thomas.

first!

oh no. let us all bow down to your great mastery of the first post. you are da man/woman/other. wow. the skill demonstrated would shame even the most devout Shack visitor. golly-gee-whillikers, if only everyone dead were alive to see this.

anyways, how 'bout that big mac guy - I bet the frozen ones heat up real tasty-like.

Well, the Shack is moving today too and appears to be offline... And bashing Shackers? Come on buddy. No one would be caught dead on the shack using the term "golly-gee-whillikers"...

Ugh
How the hell can anyone eat 18,000 big macs. Granted it's over 30 years but thats a hell of alot of bad food. He could have spent his money alot better. Lets see 18,000 value meals * 5 bucks (Can) hmmm 90000. Of course thats just a wild guess as 30 years ago it wouldn't have cost him 5 bucks. If he invested/saved that money instead of giving it to McDicks he probably could be a millionare when he retires (and it sounds like he may be soon)

I love that first picture of the stolen Ronald McDonald story where it looks Ronald is trying to break free of the police and run.

The pictures are funny, but the story pisses me off. Ronnie wasn't stolen from a restaurant or restaurant playground, they took it from a Ronald McDonald House. What kind of <deleted> piece of <deleted> vandalizes a Rondald McDonald House. What's next tagging in cancer wards?

Wow, 18,000th big macs. Now there's a man whose done something with his life. I thought perhaps he was inspired by that episode where Homer is trying to get fat to collect disabilities (if it rubs clear, its your window to oppurtunity), but then I realized that episode did not come out over 30 years ago.
