I’m so happy someone already made this photoset
Fence-jumping, as done by Mr Simon Pegg, with varying levels of success.
Simple, but clever.
Johnny Galecki, regarding rumors about him being gay.
This is one of the best statements given by an actor.
Wow. That’s a really good way of putting it.
All of these are good, but this one in particular is a work of genius.
To his friend…

This is what I’ve been getting out of Derby for the last couple of years.
Marina Abramovic meets Ulay
“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”
“En los años 70, Marina Abramovic mantuvo una intensa historia de amor con Ulay. Pasaron 5 años viviendo en una furgoneta realizando toda clase de performances. En 1988, cuando su relación ya no daba para más, decidieron recorrer la Gran Muralla China, empezando cada uno de un lado, para encontrarse en el medio, abrazarse y no volver a verse nunca más. En 2010 el MoMa de Nueva York dedicó una retrospectiva a su obra. Dentro de la misma, Marina compartía un minuto en silencio con cada extraño que se sentaba frente a ella. Ulay llegó sin que ella lo supiera, y esto fue lo que pasó”
I’d love for people to watch the gifs and then hear the explanation of what just happened. I love this, this simple, unexpected and quite wonderful connection between two people.
Stephen Colbert is so wise.
Can’t find a source, but I saw this on Reddit.
Took me a moment, but very clever.
Post with 9 notes
In the latter part of 2012 I spotted a tweet from @CAH stating that one of the team would be in London early this year, and would anyone like to do a playtest of a possible UK expansion? I replied in the affirmative and thought no more of it.
Come beginning of January, I receive an email follow-up and it’s on. This all lead to me and several friends spending last night in a pub discussing whether “corgi-on-a-stick” or “The bloody Welsh” was a funnier white card.
It’s fascinating talking to an American games designer who’d spent a bunch of time researching British history and thinking about what to put in the game. He’d included a few cards (particularly one to do with a historical massacre) that no one round the table had more than a passing knowledge of, yet had completely missed out pantomime and Doctor Who. Clearly this needed to be rectified.
Without giving too much away (and who knows what’ll actually make it into the finished product?) we managed to get Stephen Fry’s brain, Morris dancing, Jeremy Clarkson and several mentions of the Royals in. We also, as a group, explained at great length the importance of all of these things. I did catch Eli once or twice looking faintly overwhelmed by seven UK residents all talking at once.
It was a hilarious, and very worthwhile evening, and I look forward to the expansion coming out later this year. I presume more playtesting is taking place but if you play CAH with me and I get terribly, terribly excited over a particular card then this is why.
Neil Gaiman’s new years wish.
Bravery and joy. I can go with that.
“soft dalek, warm dalek
little ball of hate
happy dalek, sleepy dalek
