Simon: "Grocery stores would adamantly NOT like that. But they really couldn't do anything about it."

Me: "I'm going to hell."

Why do we always come here?

I guess we'll never know.

Jim: hey, my job is using a sign company to design a sign for the outside of a building... So i sent our logo over in illustrator format. So the guy opens the file (in Photoshop for some reason) then calls up and asks "are those checkerboards are part of the logo"

Jim: I'm recommending we switch sign guys...

NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.

Okay, so I was watching SG-1 this morning/evening and I got curious about some of the hand signals that O-neill uses, so I googled. I found This which is NOT a listing of the real signals, but still, rather amusing.
