I was enjoying the jiggling when I saw a message hectoring me to "SHAKE VIGOROUSLY" so I bailed because I don't need anyone nagging me about my jiggling.

So, this is the new RickRoll?

If so, I prefer the old one.

I was let down because I thought for sure that I was candyflipping but nope.

HuronBob: 32-year-old checking in, I looked up "candyflipping" as well.

"Candyflipping" sure gives a whole new meaning to the lyrics of "I want candy".
posted by tilde at 11:26 AM on August 15, 2012


It's not doing it for me know, but the first time I tried it I got an ear-piercing electonica soundtrack to go with the psychedelia. Nearly had a heart attack.

That is the most seizure-y thing I've ever seen!

The fun thing about 'candyflipping' is that it's been an outdated term for nearly 20 years. Not to make you feel even older or anything.

Well I know where the staggering part is anyways, and I'd point it out to you, but my eyes are no longer working properly.

....it wasn't like that. At all.

The coffee. yeah, I was going for another cup of coffee.

Maybe it was like that. I won't be back very soon.

What is the new updated term?

The new updated term is "nobody sells LSD any more, but I can still sell you some ecstasy. No, of course it doesn't have any MDMA in it, but these are the good ones. Three quarters meth and only a quarter PCP."

I know, it doesn't roll off the tongue quite so well.

there really does appear to be a babby forming inside that thing

So first, I nearly crapped myself, and did that panicky, flailey thing with my hands that you see other people do when something happens with their computers. Then I made it dance (gently) to Staying Alive for about 5 minutes. I strongly recommend everyone to do this.
It hasn't brought my pulse down significantly, but it was very nice all the same.

What is the new updated term? "Where the fuck did you get acid and why didn't you tell me you were getting acid?" --- There's still acid these days? I figured once the Dead stopped touring when Jerry died, the whole distribution network died along with him.

Had a peaceful purring kitty on my lap reading the catnip thread. I think that link was a bad trip for her, because she went from half asleep to attack mode in 0.05 seconds

I know. It's an exact simulation of the brain zaps you get during Paroxetine withdrawal.

i was curious and read the source... the state variable for the 'tripping balls' mode is called 'peaking'. so, yeah. too much LDS in the 60's.

An ex sent me a link to this earlier with the note, "This is what it's like to spend a night between the sheets with you."

Compliment? Insult?

That seems an inappropriate email from an ex, objectively speaking.

You should probably not click that link directly after reading the slenderman thread.
