In the interest of keeping the other threads tubelike, I have created this thread to serve as a dump truck. Post funny links here rather than starting new threads for them. By doing so, you will resist the temptation to make link posts in your blog instead, which is a good way to post frequently but a bad way to post memorably.

FIRST!

Okay, how about Strange Candy?

http://www.strangecandy.net/

A must-read webcomic for any fan of the cultural benefits we've recieved from Japan.

Or the Standard Galactic Alphabet?

http://www.ultrazone.org/sga/?msg=fiver

I even input the word "fiver" in there so you can all see how a Vorticon would spell it.

Okay, I found the site, but I'm still lost.

Yeah, I must not be hitting the magic keys, because I'm not seeing anything that amazing. Let's move on, shall we?

More like a contrarian.

He'll probably disagree.

I have to thank you once again for including my goat-people quote in your sig. It makes me smile every time.

Hey Nate, do you remember the Strange Candy reference I once made at this site?

Not before you die for passing it on. Fortunately, the MegaMan Battle Network games have given me good practice with quizzes that pointlessly force you to start over again and again.

Seriously, while it's very annoying, it's also just the kind of humour I like. It reminds me of the classic adventure games like Space Quest. (In fact, the same method of solution is applicable: you can eventually win by trying every possible click.)

Mathematicians and geeks in general love this sort of trickery, so I've been making good speed through the questions. Do you know how many there are? I'm calling it quits for tonight at 63 or so.

(Two points for anyone else trying the quiz. One, a little knowledge of 4chan running jokes will serve you well. Two, don't try to cheat with Tab. The game boots you if you do, sorta like how adventure games would punish you for swearing into the interpreter or using information your character doesn't have yet.)

Only 63? Quitter!
Oh, and there is 110. I know this because I cheated, and looked it up. By the way, DON'T USE ANY SKIPS! You need them all to pass the last question.

Merely trying trial and error won't work forever, either. This I know from experience (stupid horseshoes).

I particularly like their candy sushi. Pity they only ship in the USA.

I don't know if this has ever been pointed out here, but there's a guy who essentially does five-minute video parodies of Yu-gi-oh that he calls Yu-gi-oh the Abridged Series. I've never read or watched or whatevered Yugioh, but I've found these to be hilarious.

Has anyone else seen the (various) 404 page(s) for livejournal? They're quite good for wasting about 2 minutes...

The Surrealist I found after the dungeon fad on LJ. It's good for wasting time.

I particularly like This
