Not much happening

Here’s a little amusing something to do just to while away a few minutes.

Go to Google. And enter ... “Where is Chuck Norris” (without the speech marks) and then press the ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ button.

Good huh??

Quiz Question.

If you were standing at the top of The Empire State Building, at midday, on a nice clear day, what would be the furthest thing you could see with the naked eye??

(Answer to be revealed over the weekend unless someone gets it right inbetween.)

Thought of the Day

Treat every day as if it was your last, cause one day, it will be.

  1. How about we get together and protest Chuck Norris?

    Although, the idea of a flash mob isn't necessarily to protest something. It's more to get a group of strangers together so you aren't the only dumbass wearing the green-striped Dr. Suess hat.

    You remember the old practical joke, where you and your friends got together in a shopping mall and just looked *up*, like you're looking AT something? and see how many other people came to see what you were looking at? I guess this is what you'd call the modern day version of this.
