From a Craigslist posting:
IF ITS POSTED DONT ASK IF ITS AVAILABLE STUPID ASS
Amen, sir, amen.
Because no one has ever left their craigslist post up after they sold their item?
Yeah, I know. It does happen a lot. (Although listings also expire, so...) But it's amusing to see somebody making a point of saying that they do the right thing.

But they're also calling me a stupid ass. My opening inquiry is either "I'm interested in your hookers and blow." or "Are the hookers and blow still available?" I consider those two statements interchangeable. I'm unconvinced that makes me a stupid ass.
*sigh* I'm overthinking this. It's just a light laugh. Sorry.

Yeah, I've seen posts where people say "If this posting is still up the item is still available" and I appreciate that. If you're going to call me a stupid ass in the process, ehhhh, fuck off. :lol:

The US Embassy in Canberra, Australia, sent out an invitation to a "cat pyjama-jam", featuring a photo of a tabby cat wearing a blue Cookie Monster outfit. The mission was forced to disappoint everyone, saying it had been a test of an email newsletter platform that wasn't actually supposed to go live.

I'm probably just way overtired, but I can't stop giggling at this.

(from an Ask Reddit thread about awesome things found while dumpster diving)
Another time, found a perfectly good Schwinn world sport circa 1979 bicycle. It had a rusted chain and cracked tires. gears needed adjusting, new seat new cables, fixed it up for $60 in parts. It served me for 5 years I was in college until a heavy friend borrowed it and cracked the frame.
Man, I'm fat. But I sure am glad I'm not "crack the frame of a bike" fat.

In the 1890s, the German cities of Bonn and Beuel agreed to build a bridge between them over the Rhine. Apparently Beuel backed out of the deal partway through, leaving Bonn to finance the entire thing itself. As a result, the completed bridge included a small statue of a man sticking his butt out at Beuel. Later, when Bonn and Frankfurt were in a dispute about which of them would get to be the new capital, Bonn turned the statue so the butt was facing Frankfurt.
