My grandfather was a snitch for the Salazar police PIDE back in the 60/70's...
Probably some persons went missing because of him =/

My great grandfather died in Tarrafal, a concentration camp for political prisioners in Cabo Verde... He was a comunist and he was snitched.

....

There's only one creature worse than a Conjecture Nazi.

....


In this case there are competing hypotheses. I don't like people dumbing down science, or misrepresenting it (albeit an accidental misrepresentation). In the end you finish up with "the Bermuda Triangle" and spoonbending.

My humorous post was bringing attention to myself, acting as a Grammar Nazi.

Can we now get back on topic? All this talk about big, fat mammals is making me horny.

Today I watched an episode of "Southland" and learned what BBW means.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLOPS

Quote
As of October 2012, the Bitcoin Network had reached a cumulative network hash rate of 23.67 Terahashs/s which is estimated to be utilizing hardware capable of 300.59 petaFLOPS, making the network the largest in terms of computing power.[39] It is expected that the network will continue growing at faster than Moore's law in the near future,[40] primarily due to development of specialized ASIC hardware with highly disruptive performance and pricing.[41] Bitcoin FLOPS are estimates based on number of integer operations required to solve double round of SHA-256 (1 INTOP = 2 FLOP, 1 hash = 6.35K INTOP, 1 hash = 12.7K FLOP),[42] its has been suggested that this estimate may be an overestimate by 88%.,[43] yielding a current best estimate of 160 petaFLOPS.

Today I learned that high-performance DDR2 memory are still the most expensive and hardest to find compared to DDR1 or DDR3.

Today I learned that more than 1000 bitcointalk users want to look at someone elses' cock.
Or maybe there are just 100 users who want to look at someone elses' cock 10 times.
There's still more to learn about this, I see...

I have a felling I don't want to click on that.

Also, if that is the thread you are skewing your data since people might click it without wanting to look at a cock.  This is a bad rickroll.

Today I've learnt that in 1992, sewer system blew up in Guadalajara, killing and injuring hundreds in the streets and homes. The explanation is complicated, as it involves gasoline pipeline, electrochemistry/corrosion, gravity, incompetent engineers, and oblivious politicians.

They're there, in their room.
Your mining rig is on fire, yet you're very calm.

Today I learnt psy data mines cock threads. Must be a Portuguese thing.

Portuguese guy walks up to a Scotsmen.

Scotsmen: WTF, dude!
Portuguese: Data mining.
Scotsmen: In that case, I'll enter my Gaelic staff into your tracheal shaft.
Portuguese: Don't tease me!

How many fellings do you have under your belt? Just for information, mind, I'm not some weirdo that gets off on thinking about other people making sweet, sweet lumber.

Why is it that I can related to that?

While driving the countryside, when I see dilapidated barns, I calculated their worth if salvaged. At least once, I found myself leaving the road after turning my head back around from viewing such goldmines.

The word “February” is pronounced fe-broo-airy by some and feb-you-airy by others. That is interesting–I think it is a case of sound change, but I do not know (maybe it is dialectal thing?).
Also this is interesting:
OCTober oct means eight (octopus, octagon)
SEPTtember sept means seven in French
NOVember the nov represents nine (neuf is none in French)
DECember the dec represents ten
Read more at http://hotword.dictionary.com/february/#1Xho8F3E0DDLlgHc.99

JANuary is not named for God of Asics.
FEBruary, not to be mistaken for FAB, is a very special month.
MARCH is what some people may consider doing if FEB doesn't turn out special.
APRIL will consist of many storms if people MARCH.
MAY is when there will be a parade.
JUNE is the first part of a well-known insect, not to be mistake for another insect having a wider wingspan--and colorful.
JULY could consist of fireworks, depending if there's a drought or not.
AUGUST: au·gust  [aw-guhst] (MAY or MAY not apply)
adjective
1. inspiring reverence or admiration; of supreme dignity or grandeur; majestic: an august performance of a religious drama.

2. venerable; eminent: an august personage.

. Muscle anatomy, I'm actually tired from learning this because there's so much to remember Sad

. Almost completely learned how to make a basic Bezel setting for Jewellery which is a complete pain in the arse but definitely worth it

. Also learned that most open source shopping cart interfaces suck balls because they're all just clones of each other with frills attached, it looks like shelling out some Bitcoins is the best way to go especially if you want one that works with Bitcoin correctly

So is lake Titicaca. Sadly, no titi there, but there's plenty of fish caca.
