Today's LJ post requires some work on your part.

Necessary Materials:
  • 1 Slurpee, any flavor
  • 1 Slurpee straw
  • 1 handful birdshot (whatever gauge you have handy will be fine)
  • 1 saucepan, medium
  • 1 tape recorder
  • 2 cassette tapes

  1. put Slurpee out on the counter
  2. allow it to begin melting
  3. put birdshot in saucepan
  4. roll it around, in a circular motion
  5. develop a good consistent sound
  6. record this sound onto the first tape
  7. label this tape "TAPE A"
  8. if the slurpee hasn't become soft and at least partially liquid, go back and repeat the birdshot steps
  9. eat/drink the Slurpee, leaving 1/4" (roughly .6 cm) of liquid at the bottom of the cup
  10. wait for the brain freeze to pass
  11. insert the other tape into the tape recorder
  12. record the sound of sucking the last bit of the Slurpee out of the cup. This should sound wet and, um, slurp-y.
  13. if not, buy another Slurpee and try again
  14. watch out for brain freeze
  15. maybe just a big cup of Coke would work, too
  16. when you have a satisfying straw-slurp sound recorded, label the tape "TAPE B"
  17. play back TAPE A and TAPE B simultaneously

That's the sound that my desktop computer at home is making off and on. I think I need a new fan.

Remember to bring a handful of marbles and a vacuum cleaner tomorrow.

That may be the funniest thing I've ever read.

Or at least pretty funny.

Here's mine


  1. Get a bicycle

  2. Also procure a hammer and nail (any size) and a 2" x 2" X 2" block of wood

  3. Drive nail through bicycle tire and wheel into block of wood positioned between spokes.

  4. Ride bicycle down hill

That's my laptop hard drive right now.

Re: Here's mine

I've got to think that's bad for the wheel, the pavement, and possibly the laptop.
