You could start a Defcon Fansite naming thread and see what people come up with. Might be interesting.

Yeah, but I thought my own was pretty clever. Since I will host it at Portal42 (my own site), and 42 can be seen as a DEFCON level. But who knows?

Anyways, I'll do that tomorrow. I need to find out where phpBB parses pages, because I want the rankings to show up in the profiles...

I love challenges!

DEFCON 42? Is that the alert level when all world militaries are only using sharpened flints and sticks?

That actually is the reason I named my site Portal42. The portal thingy just seemed nice to me.

Although 42 as a DEFCON level could mean the ultimate answer is total annihilation. Sounds great :D

Anyways, we're definitely off-topic now. Who's got a good counter-lyric to APP?

No, I meant as follows:

Q: The world is hopeless! What is the solution, oh Deep Thought?
A: Total annihilation. What else?

Nespresso?

Speaking of Deep Thought......

I am a database and that is all i'll ever be
I am a database straight from redundancy
I am a database and all I do is aim to please
Hey baby wanna happen, please press my primary keys

I am a database, I only speak in SQL
I am a database, communicating through this shell
I am a database and all I do is aim to please
Hey baby wanna happen, please press my primary keys

Huzaah for my collection of bizaare songs.

A database is unaffected by your mere French wines.

I recon I can trump that for sheer strangeness:

"The league of British bedstead men is marching though the night,
A desperate and dedicated crew,
Under cover of the hedges,
Always keeping out of sight,
For the precious load of bedsteads must get through."

"Oh, the lily ponds of Suffolk,
And the millponds of the west,
Are part of Britain's heritage,
The part we love the best."


-extracted from the League of British Bedstead Men, by Flanders and Swan. Brilliant song, if it had been more modern I bet you it would have been shopping trolleys.

Ok this is from the mind of Bill Bailey...

"I am Death
A Winged Beast
I am borne on the velvet wings of night
And I'm hungry for a feast
I am the nemesis of the vole
My heart is black as coal
You can kill me with a trowel

I am an owl..."

Uhh,

shinygerbil, a couple of pages ago, wrote:All our times have come

Come on baby... Don't fear the Reaper
Baby take my hand... Don't fear the Reaper
We'll be able to fly... Don't fear the Reaper

"You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better

And you can't get out of it"

Hehehe.
