You holder of Love chalice

Please

Speak but do not kill me

With it

Your mean grace of this

You are all I can see in movies, in this

Reality

Of cold whoes

Of alloty of strange

Cruel then

When it is

Only

You can I ever think of

And you magical piano

That

Kills

No, he successfully got himself banned, jokes after a while stop being funny!

Seems fair, but can't help to wonder if this apparently nonsense ultimately would lead to something incredibly funny.

Likely not, but who knows.  :-//

Those are a 3rd or 4th round of rubbish that he posted, pages worth from before were deleted. A joke stops being funny when you overdo it. Humor is an unexpected thing, when it becomes so damn predictable its not humor anymore.

Dude!  That butane bottle in your workshop is leaking, and affecting you!
Take it outside, and go see a doc; your health is in danger.

(No, I'm not kidding.)

That is what happens when you get high on solder fumes.

At first I was thinking necktie too tight, perhaps, but chemically fueled seems more likely.   

What the heck was that?!  Wow...  :phew:

I agree with you totally. There's a difference between being genuinely funny, or just an absolute clown whom you can't wait to exit stage left  ;D

That second picture is completely consistent with control theory.  In controls language men are observable and controllable (One switch, one indicator, indicator is consistent with switch).  Women are neither observable or controllable.  (Not all controls have indicators.  Indicators only indicate binary states, though controls are analog, and there are more controls than there are indicators.)

To me it looks like the control panel to all the sales executives I have to deal with when trialling “enterprise software”. I have to carefully twiddle them until the rip off LED goes out.

That second one made gave me a sorely needed laugh this morning...  :)

Does anyone have a higher resolution version of that pic? 

I'd like to make myself a T-shirt...   :-DD

That controls pic used to be part some sort of screensaver/idle screen on the que display at a small restauraunt here (they rarely had enough business to warrent using so I guess they just put that along with a few other cycling pics). Though I think there's was a scope control panel for the second image.

I haven't found a higher resolution version of the control panel picture, but here are some sources to try.

The artist is Miller Levy.
A picture of the panel is used in the book: Diversity and Design: Understanding Hidden Consequences edited by Beth Tauke, Korydon Smith, Charles Davis
The picture in the book is credited to Barend Jan de Jong.

I saw that photo probably 20 years ago for the first time (just give me time to come to terms with that). I doubt there is any better version to be found.

That kind of reminds me of a parody about HP and their tablets and a singer that promoted it.
