3000 Hits, UCAS Return, Snakes on YouTube, Army Mishaps and Joining Al-Qaeda

Lots of things happened today; I passed the 3000 hit milestone, my UCAS application was sent back to me, I played Snake on YouTube, I found out the Microsoft Word recognises YouTube as a word, I have reason to believe that removing the army’s don’t ask don’t tell policy was a bad idea and I read that we are all one click away from joining Al-Qaeda.

I’m going to start with the 3000 hits.  Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to read my blog.  I hope that you find it interesting and useful.  Two new categories will be introduced over the next few days in an attempt to clean up the, not entirely well thought out, categories that I currently use.  These categories are Movies and Seasonal.  I will not be getting rid of the genre categories (Horror, Action, etc), but all movies, regardless of genre, will be in the Movies category.  Seasonal is being made to reduce the amount of articles that needlessly end up in the Random section.  I noticed, over the Christmas period, that I had no other place for holiday related articles, other than the random page.  It seems strange as holidays are on fixed dates and are therefore one of the least random things I can think of.

Not much to say about my application, there was a problem I hope it’s fixed now.

Now for Snake, I’m not sure how many people already now this, but if you pause a YouTube video at 0:00, hold down the left arrow and then hit the up arrow you can play Snake.  You can even play the video in the background if you want and are fast enough to click play.  It works on every video on YouTube, but it won’t work on embedded videos.  This basically means that you won’t be able to play it on site, like this blog, that feature YouTube videos.  It can be a distraction, but it’s a fun little Easter egg.  Funny thing is no one seems to know how long it’s been there; maybe it has been around since the creation of YouTube.

I read an article today about an incident that happened at an army base in the UK.  An army office, that was in charge of 20 soldiers in Oman (relatively funny pun that I won’t be using ‘OH MAN what was I thinking’, says the drunken soldier), got drunk kissed one of the soldiers and put his face between the ass cheeks of another, who is only 19 I might add.  Basically all of them got drunk and he end up being dared to lick the 19 year olds arse, it was the 19 year old that dared him.  He then proceeded to vomit and urinate in view of shoppers.  Needless to say his military career is over.  Captain Alex Johnston will no doubt be missed by all 20 of the soldiers, especially the 19 year old.

The last part of this multi-topic article is about accidently joining Al- Qaeda.  According to actress Winona Ryder we are all just one wrong click away from joining the terrorist group.  She says that she does not use her computer because ‘googling is a terrifying thing’ for her.  She fears that she might unintentionally join Al- Qaeda.  A lot of reporters seem to be taking her serious, and maybe she was, but to me it sounds like she was making a joke.  Plus you never know this Al- Qaeda button may be right in front of you and you don’t even know it.

Happy 3000 hits.  Thank you all for reading and don’t be afraid to leave comments, I love comments, even if you just want to complain about something I’ve written.
