    (Cliff Clavin voice) Okay, so what you're gonna want to do here is, first you're gonna want to look for stray points. They're tricky things and not very obedient. It's a little known fact - they will actually wander way of your work area and try to hide.

    Right, no more messing about. Here's what you need.

    1. a facetube account
    2. a reeeeaaaallly high MP digital camera
    3. a very, very tall building


    1. organise a flash mob (min 10,000 people)
    2. hand each of them an album cover.
    3. Run to the top of the very, very tall building.
    4. Lean over the edge and take photo (don't lean too far...)
    5. Run back down and ask flash mob to turn album covers over
    6. repeat step 3.

    After that, it's a simple matter of cropping in photoshop.

    In short you cremate a loved one - have a diamond created from some of the ashes. Gems retail from $2,700 to $20,000. very cool, but kinda creepy.

    lol @ the classics...

    Thanks for the quotage Kool, always a great start to my Friday.

    Anyone have cool plans this weekend? I'm fending off a head cold, so not much exciting for me. Hubby's playing a gig tonight, so I'm going to take advantage of his absence to FINALLY take down the Christmas tree. Then work at the restaurant all day tomorrow, and I picked up a shift Sunday too. Not much relaxing, but, hell, I'll at least have the tree put away and a few bucks in my pocket.

      No plans this weekend. I was in Germany last week, so taking it easy. I easily drank enough booze to <insert funny>.

      Anyway. Have terrific weekend.

        lol @ nanbots. Great quotes, thanks Kool.

        Weather permitting (we may get a wee bit of ice this afternoon) I need to run some errands, grocery shop, make soap, make cookies, do laundry and do a little shopping with mom this weekend.

        Anyone know if there's a significant difference in taste between creme de menthe and peppermint schnopps? Wondering if I can substitute schnopps for the menthe in a recipe.
        Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

          LMAO @ the Classics!! Holy shit that's some funny stuff right there!!

          Thanks for the quotes Kool. Much appreciated. I've missed out on some great stuff this week! Where the hell have I been?!?!

          I think this is going to be a pretty chill weekend. Might be heading over to a buddy's place for some brews and heavy metal tonight or tomorrow, and that's about the extent of our plans I believe! lol. And we're finally thawing out around here! all week our high temps have been in the -28C to -30C range, without the wind chill factored in. (that's -18F to -22F for you guys south of the border) With the wind we've been sitting around -35C/-33F (as the highs....don't even ASK about our low temps!). This weekend it's supposed to get slightly above freezing, meaning I can put the winter coat away and go back to just a sweater and my jacket Huzzah!

          Whatever the rest of you get up to, have a great weekend!! And Virgo...feel better, eh!

                    Sir, I joined this week so I missed out on Loads of stuff. I basically try to learn by search through the threads. I came across the pirate thread and that's my fav. ;-)

                          Not till Monday PD. That's when in a single day I go from being "in my 40s" to being "in my 50s" :Gulp:

                            It doesn't hurt. Did it myself last August.
                            What hurts is all the over-the-hill stuff.
                            My sister gave me a gift wrapped in paper that said, "In dog years, you'd be dead" all over it. Complete with a cartoon dog with X's for eyes.
                            Hope yours is fun too!

                              Car Talk had a great bit recently about aging. It was epic. As was this post.

                              Thanks again, Koolio.
