Post your favourite poem :)

String is a wonderful thing
Rope is thicker
But string is quicker

-- St. Spike of Milligan

Reckon that means I like 'em short and absurd, and the LOLcat haiku "Nom" scores highly too:

Nom nom nom nom nom
Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom
Nom nom nom nom nom.
...third would be Paradise Lost, which is epic and awesome, and full of truly powerful images, and a deep influence on Anglophone culture to this day, but is a bit too long to quote here.

Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair - just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with the picture.

Mmm, macro-licious.

Viked from [profile] esran: Bold the things you've done in this very long and very arbitrary list (are all of the items from Heinlein's "specialization is for insects" rant here?)  Might use this as a checklist!
200! )

I hereby declare this a Gary Gygax Memorial Meme.  No, I never knew him either, but he was instrumental in laying the framework for a whole load of stuff that certainly defined a lot of my leisure time and approach to life, and by extension, meant that I met most of you lot. 

Post your best D&D moment, no matter how daft or nerdy, and DMs, don't hold back :)

You know what would be best?  If his remains were interred in a huge lucite gelatinous cube in a subterranean tomb.

It had to happen: Lolcats and PostSecret got together one night over too much tequila.  They didn't respect each other in the morning.  And their bastard offspring is Lolsecretz.  Triple-meme scores abound.

Here's a quirky number.  Empty your pockets (or bag) onto a scanner, get your face in there too, and send the result to faceyourpockets.com.  Weirdly beautiful in a Bjork kinda way, though the kid with a gun scares me.  Russian / English language too...

Meme from ythrykythyr: raiding Wikipedia for three events, two births and a death on your birthday. On January 18:

1) Henry Morgan captures Panama in a feat of piratical brilliance and brutality (arr!)
2) The siege of Leningrad is broken by Soviet forces.
3) Monica Lewinsky's dodgy laundry gets Republicans in a tizz in the States.

1) Thomas Sopwith, inventor of the Sopwith Camel, is born.
2) Kevin Costner flops from his mother's womb. I feel like I should apologise.

1) Rudyard Kipling, maythegodsblesshimandkeephimsafe.
