Minor pony/bug relating to profile-page links to facebook. I'm on facebook but I don't have one of those fancy-dancy no-longer-so-new fb-specific usernames; my fb page is still index.php?profile=number. If I enter that on my user page as my facebook "name", the link doesn't work—the punctuation is encoded.

Is there something preventing you from getting one?

Punctuation? I just have my Facebook ID number entered in my profile, and it all just works. Are you trying to put the whole "?profile=number" in there or just the number?

haha zachlipton, I'm an idiot.

And chrisamiller: yes, there is, namely, the absence of any desire to get one. It is, at any rate, beside the point.

I'm still glad you asked the question, since I've now updated my profile to include my name, and not my number. I also added flickr pics, so thanks!

So, a technical solution to a personality problem is what you were hoping for?

No, he was hoping for a technical solution to a technical problem (that he thought the system would not accept his Facebook ID number). Turns out, there was no problem that wasn't solved by self-improvement.

Continued from here.

481. Dash in, check inbox, see that the lobster sent you an email about how to rend the fat without dirtying traditional Tyrolean outfits, reply that lederhosen were made for hard work and easy cleaning and that lightly-soiled lederhosen are the price to pay.

482. WHen you squint just so, the lobster's lederhosen appear to be lightly stained. DO NOT BELIEVE THE SPIN! 3rd Lobsterian Highland Grenadiers FTW!!

483. When the lobster stampede don't let the panic rule. Just hike up your lightly-soiled lederhosen and book it.

484. No, he was hoping for a lobster solution to a lobster problem (that he thought the system would not accept his Lederhosen ID number). Turns out, there was no problem that wasn't solved by light soiling.

486. For a refreshing take on Thanksgiving why not try stuffing a lobster with lightly-soiled lederhosen and baking until the popper pops all over the shop?

488. The lobster won't tell you why you woke up, but simply glance meaningfully at your lightly soiled lederhosen.

489. Wrapping the lobster in lederhosen to avoid getting pinched while you bashed it dead against the concrete wall may have seemed smart at the time but now all you have is a dead lobster and lightly-soiled lederhosen.

Goddammit, you lost your lobster again. Catching up to it when you lose it always takes a few days.

491. HURRY UP LOBSTER, ITS LEDERHOSEN ARE LIGHTLY-SOILED
posted by Kattullus at 11:00 AM on November 30, 2009


492. If you are tired then count the lobster. There is only one lobster. That is okay. Don't worry too much about it and don't think about the stain on your lederhosen. You're thinking about your lightly-soiled lederhosen, aren't you? Stop it and count the lobster. There is only one lobster. There is only one lobster. There is only one lobster.

OH NO.

When your pulse quickens and you feel an anxiety attack coming on, follow these simple steps to return to a state of calm:
  1. Put on your lederhosen (lightly soiled ones are fine, don't stress if they aren't clean).
  2. Grab the nearest lobster to hand.
  3. Sit down in an easy chair.
  4. Breathe deeply (yogic breathing).
  5. As you stroke the lobster, press the big red button.
  6. Relax and say "Ahhhhhhhh."

494. The lobster is a cubicle. The tick and the tock of the clock is a pair of lederhosen. The tiredness smeared across your eyes is the light stain.

495. The lobster can't fall asleep and it can't wake up. That's why it ends up going to work in lightly-soiled lederhosen. Be not like the lobster.

496. Take this lobster and shove it! I'm tired of ending up with lightly-soiled lederhosen night after night.

500.

New Rule: padding out the list is strictly forbidden. Posters not making a token effort to mention both lobster and stained lederhosen will be disbarred. Posters not deemed sufficiently surreal will be disbarred. Posters deemed to be "phoning it in" will be disbarred.

The panel's decisions will be final, and you can put that in your pipe and smoke it while leading the charge of the third lobsterian mounted highlanders in their battle against (ice planet hoth outfit) Luke Skywalker and the IOC AT-AT Giant Mushroom Forest defence league. That's right, you hreard right, I was finger fucking your mom just now and the whole Hoth thing was her idea.

501. André Breton died friendless and was buried in lightly-soiled lederhosen, surrounded only by family and his chosen lobsters.

502. The lobster vanishes, leaving you only a pair of lightly soiled lederhosen to remember it by. Cherish what you have but do not forget what is lost.

504. The number 503 is not a number profane to The Lobster, but merely a testament to the apophenia of humanity which sees the number in the happenstance of shape taken by the light stain on the lederhosen.
