Well, you could spin the cat hair and make a jumper. It would be exactly the same colour as the cat-fluff. So the fluff wouldn't show up. What more could you want?

now *that* is actually a good idea. and since i mostly dress in black and grey anyway, it would even match the rest of my clothes.

The full t-shirt hasn't been posted yet. pshrynk did post some close-ups: #600 and in another thread.

How did he do that? (attachment search for zelda... and/or too much time on my hands )

That's excellent, Nick. I'm now never going to look for anything ever again. I'm just going to post that I couldn't be stuffed, and wait for you to find it for me. Incidentally, I'm looking for a Roger Whittaker album containing the song Daisy a Day. Oh, yeah, and I've been looking for it since...about June 2003, and I've had search-alerts set up on Google and Ebay all that time. Off you go, there's a good chap...

Cheers,
Marc (You say "lazy" like it's a bad thing)

Hey, I remember seeing TV (info)commercial about his albums along with those of Zamfir many moons ago; don't recall any specific songs though.

I've got your back covered, so "chill" on the searching...

Spooky...

...was talking to OH at lunch about the 'Google: A Decade On' article I read this morning. He said that Google's plan for world domination would be greatly advanced if they had subliminal messaging pop up every time someone clicked a link.
Thanks to LS, I was able to advise him that (if I understand it correctly) I would be immune to such tactics because of my longstanding exposure to Eurovision (Terry Wogan ftw - it must be about time for the Eurovision Dance Contest again, launched last year) but that he might have cause to be concerned.
I think he is, in fact, now very concerned, but probably not about Google.....

On re-read, I guess there isn't a contest. Still, they're taking submissions, so there could be 15 minutes of fame in it for someone.

That list is quite a fun read, but this stuck out, only because I know some here are vegetarians:

1986: Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality (Brunner/Mazel)

I've tried, and tried, but cannot even begin to fathom what this would be about.

It's a spoof book about psychotherapy. Hilariously funny if you're in the field. No idea what effect it has on normal people.
