Reconciling assholes for nearly a decade.

Trying to find a website I used to visit often

Can't find it on Google because I don't remember specifics.

The guy used to pull all sorts of subtle pranks in public places like replacing "hot coffee" warning signs in restaurants with a nearly identical sign with rephrased language full of subtle sexual innuendo.

For another one he replaced a golden fish on a foodcourt sign with a big golden banana, or something similiar.

That site was great, but I can't remember the URL, the name of the guy, or enough details to make Google find it for me. Anybody recognize any of this?

I had a lucid dream where Professor Colin Pillinger commented on the recent proof of an intelligence in some nearby star system and spent half the morning on and off trying to find a news item to confirm that I'd heard the radio right.

Sometimes the alternate universe I inhabit is remarkably more interesting than the existing one and I'm considerably more intelligent within it.

Ah, ain't it the truth.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I just finished reading the "Credit Card Prank II", where he tries all kinds of things to get somebody to verify his signature.

Hilarious. Brilliant. Even well written.

Thanks, guys.

I just read the Kenny Rogers prank. Excellent! Even the fake TV station site they made for it looks real!
