Microsoft can kiss my hairy yellow butt!

I just got a new computer for work, and Wordpad will not open all of my old Wordperfect files. I'm having to download Open Office in hopes that it will read them. What kind of a lame word processing program can't convert files? banghead

I just went through the same thing with the new computer! NOOOOOOOO!

And I love your shark post, TT! I just realized they were fish. I didn't understand it at first.

Actually, I love Wordperfect. That's why I've held onto it for so long. It's Wordpad that I hate.

I'm cryptic like that. Most people call it "weird" and avoid me like I'm the shark and they's the fish.

It's funny and kind of charmingly heartbreaking at the same time. Poor shark. But it kind of looks like it's blurred out, so it took me a while.

Haha, that's awesome.

There's not enough costumes in live music nowadays. Me and a friend were trying to start a band called Dangerous Crustaceans. We were basically a halfway point between Weezer and Slayer, but all we wanted was to wear Hawaiian shirts and sandals and get in a fight with someone in a lobster costume on-stage. Would have been a musical revolution, I tell ye.

We could never find a bassist and second guitarist who were up for such a ridiculous band. Massive loss to the music industry, as far as I'm concerned ;D

That was absolutely beautiful, TT. Sort of made my day. Suddenly I can't remember the term used for when you rub them on the nose like that. Apparently they can even tag the sharks when they're in that sort of state.

Me, I'd just get eaten.

Great white sharks rock out to AC/DC

IF YOU THOUGHT that AC/DC was simply rock made for
leather-jacket-wearing old folks, you’d be wrong – because it appears
the long-haired Aussies are extremely popular with great white sharks.

Okay, that was one of the coolest things that I've ever read. Our school song was Back in Black.



So Shark Week started last night at 9:30 pm! Suddenly I'm going to buddy up with anybody who has the Discovery Channel.

Cool story, with video:


Surfers Rescue Injured Great White Shark

While most people quickly flee from a Great White Shark, some brave California surfers rescued one over the weekend.

On Venice Beach, a baby shark washed ashore just a few feet from the world famous Venice Pier.

With the shark fighting for its life, a pack of surfers took a fish hook from its mouth, then dragged it back into the Pacific Ocean.

Bad-ASS!!! headbang

Surfer stood on great white shark's back off Oregon coast

Doug Niblack was trying to catch another wave before going to work, when his longboard hit something hard as rock off the Oregon Coast and he suddenly found himself standing on the back of a thrashing great white shark.

Looking down, he could see a dorsal fin in front of his feet as he stood on what he described as 10 feet of back as wide as his surfboard and as black as his own Neoprene wetsuit. A tail thrashed back and forth and the water churned around him like a depth charge went off.

"It was pretty terrifying just seeing the shape emerge out of nothing and just being under me," he told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "And the fin coming out of the water. It was just like the movies."

It's all downhill from here for that dood. What else in his life is ever going to compare to surfing on the back of a GREAT WHITE SHARK?!? You can't beat that!
