Thanks to CompuServe and their animated Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), watching fails has never been more satisfying, or educational. So, as you skim through these fail GIFS you may want to take some mental notes, like always check the wall for a door before kicking it down, don’t punch grinning street signs, and whatever you do, stay in school! <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1817" title="penguin fail" src="http://cdn.list25.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/penguifall.gif" alt="penguin fail" width="320" height="240" /> credit – attinet <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1819" title="mugger fail" src="http://cdn.list25.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/muggingfail.gif" alt="mugger fail" width="360" height="272" />
You two girls were amped up about the 4 free patio chairs that I posted on CL. You came over, wafting the aroma of the sticky-icky as you walked by, and sat in the chairs and decided that they were the chairs for you. My husband and I proceeded to pick them up to carry them out front when we were informed that you were driving a Honda Civic. Insisting that you could fit one chair in and then come back for the rest, you squeezed about 4 inches of the chair into the car as the passenger held on tight to the 90% of the chair that was dangling on the outside. Many months have since passed and we have yet to see you stoners again. In my mind, there are 4 likely reasons as to why we have not seen you girls again:
At Duke University, there were four sophomores taking Organic Chemistry. They did so well on all the quizzes, midterms and labs, etc., that each had an "A" so far for the semester. These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to go up to the University of Virginia and party with some friends there. They had a great time - however, after all the hardy-partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it.
The Cat's Diary Day 983 of My Captivity My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets.

I was biking down the bike path near my house, on my way to visit my girlfriend, when I happen to overhear a pair of ducks loudly arguing about something duck-related. First one would quack, then immediately the other, then the first one again. Because I was moving slow and they were loud, I managed to hear a good 30 seconds of duck banter. Now, experience tells me that if an animal is making noise and you yell "SHUT UP!" at it, it'll usually comply.
