Prime numbers are the best. You totally get laid more on prime number years.*

Happby Pbirthday!

omg there is someone else who thinks prime number birthdays are special - were you on the Math Team, too, boss?
posted by jtron at 8:42 AM on August 30, 2010


pb, I know what you mean about the birthday math. I'm about the same age, and I'm getting to the point where I genuinely forget how old I am, usually by a year or so. Fortunately, I've been pleasantly surprised that it's not older than I initially fear before I do the calculation. I don't know if that will last forever, though.

Happy birthday! August 30th birthdays are the best birthdays.

(It's my birthday today too.)

You know, it's funny how you never see pb and robocop is bleeding in a room together...

Happy Birthday young man!1

At this point, I think it's more like "the place wouldn't be without you".

1: I am 38 myself so I get to say this to someone who's 37, don't I?

If I can jump on this pony request, I'd also like to see the site reconfigured to more accurately reflect pb's awesomeness. Maybe make it more scripty? I hear a lot about these 'scripts.' Also, make everything bigger so I can see the logo.

I have actually seen that! And here is where pb took a photo of the back of rib's head. Happy birthday robocop!

At 40, you get a lawn. Have you stated planning yet? It might take a couple years to get all the electric fences and super-soakers together -- start now!

No no no, the whole thing's gotta "pop"! You know? And add some of this social networking stuff, the kids love that.

Here, I have some mockups that my eight-year-old cousin drew, she's a whiz with computers. Can you get this done by tomorrow? I'll decide whether to pay you after I see the finished product.

Can't someone write a greasemonkey script to do this instead?

(Happy birthday, pb)

pb is hopefully old enough to recognize the Altered Images tune playing in my head. If they were me, if they were me, and I was you, and I was you ...

Happy birthday, pb!

Since we're redesigning the site here: as the mods grow older, the default font size should increase. Also, I hear Comic Sans is pretty good for poor eyesight.

Happy days of birth to both pb and robocop is bleeding! The site wouldn't be the same without either of you.

That's actually just a promo shot for Portal 2.

I know what you mean; every time I bitch about being 40, I have to be reminded that I'm not actually 40 yet (it just feels like it *sob*)
