    I knew there was something I missed this Christmas: Be Bold With Bananas.

    I'll just cut right to the punchline:

    Scans and translations of a a children's 'how it works' book from Japan.

    About Super Mario 3.

    Have a go at 'spot the programmer' without reading the translations first...

    #twentythoughts My design teacher my first year at college used that exact same illustration in a powerpoint for a lecture. I don't remember what we were talking about, but I do remember him being confused as to why everyone was laughing so much.

    @celan Totally aposite, except for the requests bit... DJs that actually DO take requests tend to play fucking awful music, due to the fact that the people who request songs in night clubs invariably have terrible taste. If I had a penny for every time someone asked me for fucking Steps or Rhianna in a nightclub, I'd be a rich ex-DJ... The funniest one was when I last played a dubstep night, actually. I was playing stuff like Distance, Pinch and Ramadanman and got told to "play some fucking proper dubstep, like Chase & Status."

    -sigh-

    I no longer play out in clubs. Because they're full of dicks. Up here, at least.

    @texture
    Yeah, sounds awful...you'll never catch me in a club.
    We refer to the club down the block as "Stabby's"...it opens, someone gets stabbed, it closes, re-opens under another name, someone gets stabbed, etc.

    Hahaha - when I worked for a liquor delivery company, there was a bar called Stags, which everyone called Stabs. We couldn't deliver anything to them in glass bottles bcause of all the glassings they'd had in the past.
