Ingredient list for post mix
Ingredient list for post mix Diet Coke
Thanks McDonalds for being so open with your findings. Why isn't this put on the plastic cups as I think it's a pretty important piece of information.
Also thanks Ashadi for pointing out that HiC don't sound that appealing also when you read the ingredients.
McDonalds: Taking advantage of kids and slowly killing people with shitty food and cancer causing drinks.
Life tastes good

As discuessed at lunch today here are our sure fire methods of spicing up Bigbrother to make it more interesting
1: Make the walls close in slowly while they are all locked in a room (ala Star Wars)

MMM linked and nothing to show.
Justin posted me in the news of AIF and all I have done lately is talk shit :)
Sorry no 45 angles, super dooper design and stuff. No huge ego's either.
Check out the Happy Snaps and Desktops if you want to see anything visual.

A shock finding that people
A shock finding that people actually look at banner ads.
Wow, and to think it comes from a site (or group of sites) that seem to put banner ads everywhere. This new finding would really help these sites sell space for the ads or at least make the companies paying for those banners a little happier about the decision.
This would be the same as a tobacco company releasing reports that smoking is not harmful. Oh wait they have.
Ok, the wine industry releasing info that wine is good for the blood and help prolong long life. Ahh shit they already did
Allright, the police releasing reports showing no corruption.
Macromedia showing that 97% of people have the flash plugin.
I could go on for ages here
Why are there so many
Why are there so many award things.
Wether it be internet, advertising, design or gardening. It seems there is an award competition nearly every month.
Oh yeah it costs up to $3000 to enter. Ahhh money now I understand.
Look out for next months 'Truffle Award of Excellence In the Use of Green'
Send in your entries to email@example.com along with your $900 entry fee.
The winner will get an ugly glass thing to put on their desk and the runners up get a Taco Bell voucher.
I wish I could get
I wish I could get a Buffy Sex bot :(
But alas I don't even have a PS2

Online Jam is an interesting way to display lots of work from different artists.
Housten is one of those places I would love to visit but never will. Much like Easter Island. This is the coolest art gallery ever.
The general perception of me
The general perception of me from this site seems to be one of total and complete nerdness.
Oh that and being a complete wacko when it comes to neighbours :)

If you live in an apartment block you have to realise that there are other people living within the block.
If you come home after 2am you shut the fuck up while entering your unit.

It's the far little corners
It's the far little corners of web design that you find the most interesting people little monkey is a classic
Peepshow is another project by him and again it's awesome.
Just imagine how many great sites we are all missing out on because the creators are not ego driven assholes. They just continue along happy to be expressing themselves, while others feel the need to be linked by every design site they see even if they stuff looks like everyones else's. The most original sites I have seen I have happened upon purely by chance.
Animal Logic have made a
Animal Logic have made a small ezine for the movie industry. Don't look at this unless on fast connection as it os mostly quicktimes. Trailer
I like the retro trailer they have very funky.

Seems onetel expect me to pay my phone bill even when the company is in administration.
Let me get this right. Companies expect you to pay them but they don't have to pay people they owe money too??
Hehehe and the company doing the administration is, in part, the same company that owes me $10k and a good friend another $10k
So I say fuck that!

Today was D day for
Today was D day for my wisdom teeth. I had the right hand side set out.
While it didn't hurt, thanks to drugs, I was still able to hear them crack my tooth in half to get it out.
I got to keep them so I'll post photos soon. Mmmmm chucky bits and all
I am so hungry as it's hard to eat and my shirt is covered in dribbled blood.
Hehe I'm not good at being sick
I posted 2 new images
I posted 2 new images on photographica So those wanting a happy snap fix should check them out.
Our very own Rob is featured in one photo, I hope he doesn't mind. Even if he does, he can only punch so hard.
noah takes awesome photos. He
noah takes awesome photos.
He does a shit load of other stuff but I just looked at his photos. I am looking at his greysoft software and I think I may use it. What does that mean to you?? Jack shit :)

We just purchased an orgasmatron and I have to say I'm addicted to using it.
The perfect gift for the person with everything or even for someone with very little.
I'll bring it into work as a stress reliever, conversation starter & egg wisk.
And hey it's an Aussie invention. Better put that in my book of grouse aussie facts I'm compiling

I saw a man urinating
I saw a man urinating at QVB tonight. This is a major shopping centre and he was pissing on a firedoor right on the main walkway.
What made me most feel that people just didn't give a shit was this guy wasn't a bum, junkie or what ever he was talking on a mobile phone while pissing.
Not that a mobile phone instantly take you up a status level it's just I wouldn't even imagine anyone pissing so close to other people, in such a public spot, at peak hour.
I still remember pissing from a foot bridge onto parked cars but that was late at night, I was young and it's more funny to your pissed mates than pissing in a shopping centre.
I posted my first photo

I thought I better start with a fav of mine

What do people think of
What do people think of the new desktops. Or for that matter any of the desktops. I know this isn't a design site or anything but I still like to feel as if I can still swing it a little.
Note there are no Attik inspired 600MB photoshop desktops at 1600x1200 that are over 1MB an still look to compressed as I like my desktops to be small. 15k desktop are the best.
Less is more unless you are Thomas from Surfsation then you can do what ever you want.

Let me help you to do what I said I would do anyway.

BMW films is one of
BMW films is one of the best ideas I have seen. I would not dare go near it without a broadband connection. As 70MB quicktimes are no fun at home on a 56k.
Even the player you need to download is 7MB but if you do then you are in for a treat. World famous directors (Ang Lee, Guy Ricthie, John Frankensomone) all making short films featuring BMW cars.
Original concept and great execution. The whole thing oozes class. A shit load better than a choose your colour thing on a car website.
My last "Flash Beyond the
My last "Flash Beyond the Basics" class is over.
We made a simple game of dodge the asteroids.
Next week I won't be teaching I'll be drooling over myself after I get my wisdom tooth out on friday :(
What worse is I have a birthday to go to on Saturday and all i'll be doing is sitting in the corner, goofed up on pain killers.

Nothing beats a great meal at one of your favourite resturants.
Rambutan Bush on King St in Newtown, has to be the best Indonesian resturant in Sydney.
Can anyone else recommend good (not expensive) place to eat in Sydney.

Two NZ guys board the wrong plane and end up in China when they were destined for Aukland. New article here
Reminds me of the time a friend mentioned what it would be like for a fly if they flew into a plane.
Do fly's need visa's or more seriuosly could a fly adapt in a new country or would it die.??

It seems I forgot to upload the last 5 days of May Happy Snaps. I kept looking at my version of the hard drive and thought yep all is cool then I check the site live and.... shit what's that.
The only questions is: Why haven't I started Happy Snaps for June??

object is amazing and I think the guy who desined this designed the entire renewal site which I think looks great. No small type, no 45 degrees, just nice clean layouts.

Who would you rather see
Who would you rather see if it came down to one or the other??
A T-Rex or Jesus christ
Note: there is no doubt dinosaurs exsisted and we just have to 'imagine' that Jesus Christ did too.
Now I would go see any old dinosaur over JC anyday.
Watching the T-Rex run around breaking shit or breaking bread with some bearded dude??
