What’s this nonsense about a four day work week, huh? I shan’t hear none of it! Back, back into the furnace with all of you or I’ll break out my whip normally reserved for union negotiations! There’ll be none of this human rights nonsense under my watch, I tell you!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    International Hobbit Day? Who comes up with this nonsense?

    • HvR

      Those dirty hobitses

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Is it just me or does her left hand & arm look disproportionate?

    • Jack

      Geez dude, way to point out her birth defect. She had such a hard childhood because of the claw.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        lol. It’s a terrible compulsion I have.

    • Damn. You went there.

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Your depth perception really fucks with your mind… doesn’t it?

    Read the Bastard of the Old republic link if you have ever played a bioware game. It is quite long, but well worth it.

    I identified very much with the sentiments in that article.

  • Was wondering about the headers…

    • Hammersteyn

      I know right, where’s the food 😛

  • Jean-Pierre Jp Matthee

    Work avoidance Wednesday wont be the same this week :/

    • Hammersteyn

      kinda the same, play games earlier and get drunk even more earlier. But that’s me.

      • Skyblue

        Sounds good to me!

        • Hammersteyn

          It was good, all good 😀

  • Her Highness the Hipster

    man hands! or is it just me? 😛

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff

    So did I mention I booked leave for Thursday and Friday. 😀
    I should probably check to see if it’s been approved yet.

  • Skyblue

    Sigh, so I get home with a new Xbone and I get to… wait for an update. Serves me right I guess.
