I was watching the trailer for Primeval (movie actually looks quite horrible), and it had these 3 screens near the end:
For some reason I thought the there was going to be more to that sentence and came up with this quote:
The hunt for a killer begins by being hunted.
I thought the quote was rather clever and Google had no results for that query. Even if I broke it down into “the hunt for” “by being hunted”, it found one result that didn’t match up the quotes.
So this is a Krunk-Original 🙂
Oh yah, I didn’t know what primeval meant either. According to Dictionary.com:
- of or pertaining to the first age or ages, esp. of the world: primeval forms of life.
Sounds like primitive, but even more ancient.
VerizonMath (from /.) – I can’t believe how illogical Verizon customer service representatives can be. Maybe illogical isn’t the correct word. Other words that were floating in my head include irrational, unreasonable, and stupid. While you read this, you should start listening to his conversation with 2 Verizon reps (a supervisor and the supervisor’s boss). So how hard is it to understand that “.002 cents” does not equal “.002 dollars”. I mean he even went from something like 2 dollars does not equal 2 cent (rep agrees); .2 dollars doesn’t equal .2 cents (rep agrees); .02 dollars doesn’t equal .02 cents (rep agrees). .002 dollars doesn’t equal .002 cents (rep argues they’re the same). Haha. The Consumerist.com has labeled it as the “vcent“. DO note the audio recording isn’t really almost 2 hours long. They must’ve had a problem creating the mp3. It’s really only a little short of 27 minutes. His problem is still unresolved as even corporate can’t seem to see the difference. He now begs Verizon reps to at least go to their accountants for help with “math”, but I wouldn’t find it shocking that even the Verizon accountants would screw this math up.
Winterbells (from Digg) – a new game from Orisinal.com. The little critters are still as cute as ever. My high score was 16550, but I didn’t really play that long. Those birdies give a lot of bonus points.
After the show, I get a call from NBC Standards. It happens from time to time, usually when I just go off on a foul mouth tirade on the program. This time, I got a call from Standards, true story, they told me if I mention a web address that does not exist, even if I’m kidding around, if I mention a web address that does not exist, we legally have to buy the rights to that website. I had no idea! Sounds crazy, but that is 100% true. If you’re on television, I didn’t know this, if you’re on television, and you’re in a position of authority, which I didn’t know I was, and you mention a website, it has to exist, or you’re in a lot of trouble. So last night after the show, for $159, NBC became the proud owner for 10 years of www.HornyManatee.com
He’s the Computer Man (from Digg) – Hilarious music video. What song is this based from. The “bip bip bip bip bip bop” chorus sounds really familiar.
This Is Why We Dive (from Digg) – really cool pictures from under the sea!
Meet Thumbelina, the world’s smallest horse (from Digg) – Standing just 17 inches tall, she is never going to be a champion show-jumper. Wow! A horse mid*cough*, I mean a little horsie.
Super Mario Bros. 3 LEGO (from Digg) – Stop Motion Animation recreating a scene from Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES using Lego Blocks. See more at www.bitflicks.com This is so awesome! At first I was wondering when the LEGOs would show up, but apparently what I thought was a TV screen WAS the LEGOs!!! They have more at the website: www.bitflicks.com. They have one on Metroid, Donkey Kong, a couple more. Now that I actually some of its entries, this is actually CGI. Guess I’m somewhat disappointed now. Still neat, just not as neat as I originally thought.
CGSphere The Gallery (from Digg) – Interesting renderings of based on a original image of a sphere.

Sex worker stabs client in condom fight – A Cambodian man has been stabbed by a sex worker in a brawl, after he refused her request to wear a condom, police said Friday. Suon Da, 25, was knifed twice in the abdominal area by Sa Rida, a 24-year-old sex worker, during the fight at a brothel in Battambang province Wednesday, said Koam Roeuy, a deputy police chief from the area. What idiot doesn’t wear a condom with a prostitute?
Overloaded pants end shoplifter’s escape – Cheyanne E. Dwiggins, 18, is accused of trying to steal several pieces of candy, kitchen utensils and a 15-ounce box of strawberry Nestle’s Nesquik from Bauer’s Market in Lapel, about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis. I find his selection of stolen goods amusing.
Bush’s dog Barney is back with new video – Just in time for the holidays, America’s best-known Scottish terrier is back with a new video on the White House Web site. View the cute puppies at: Barney Cam V: “Barney’s Holiday Extravaganza” The puppies are so cute!!!
“The Last Photo I Ever Took” Contest (from Digg) – People’s last moment captured on camera.
PuzzleLand (from Digg) – A fun flash game where you try to figure the correct order of things to do. Even the Tab that highlights all the clickable items isn’t much use. I finally got stuck on level 4 and called in and used the walkthrough.
Brazil plans to sell 30-year-old coffee beans – A cup of coffee can turn too bitter to drink in hours, but unroasted, well stored coffee beans can last up to 30 years, and Brazil’s government is capitalizing on this fact. Are coffee beans suppose to taste better, the longer they’re kept, like wine?
Woman gives birth mid-flight – This was one baby who couldn’t wait to land. A 42-year-old woman gave birth to a healthy girl late Wednesday aboard a plane destined for O’Hare International Airport from Mexico, officials said Thursday. Story wasn’t too interesting, but I thought there was a rule where a woman who’s within a month of her due date is not allowed to board a plane…
Holiday shoppers keep buying during fire – An electrical fire that filled a department store with thick smoke didn’t deter holiday shoppers, and firefighters had to block the doors to keep customers from coming in, authorities said. … “It was amazing,” said Mentor fire Battalion Chief Joe Busher. “Even though there was heavy smoke in there, they all wanted to stay and shop. We even had to put people at the door to keep people from coming in.” Haha! Maybe a PS3 or Wii was involved.
Blue Dragon, Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi’s first major work in over five years, is finally out in Japan. To commemorate the release (and uh, to try and sell some Xbox 360s), Microsoft put together a special limited edition “Blue Dragon Core System Premium Pack,” which consists of an Xbox 360 Core System, a Blue Dragon faceplate, a set of five miniature figures and a mini-calendar. Oh, and a copy of Blue Dragon, of course. The amazing thing is that all of this only costs 29,800 yen–roughly $259 US dollars. Incredibly cheap, yes, but considering most Japanese gamers wouldn’t go within 50 feet of an Xbox 360 if you paid them, this kind of drastic pricing seems necessary.
Drools… Interestingly enough, demand for the Xbox 360 has actually increased quite a bit in Japan due to the release of this game. You can check out the lines for the release of this package: 『ブルードラゴン』本日発売！「ヨドバシカメラ Akiba」でカウントダウンイベント (Opening day sale of Blue Dragon! With “Yodoshi Camera Akiba” countdown event).
Speaking of which, the Xbox 360 can be picked up at Overstock.com for $325 shipped with the new 20% off coupon the just released. More details at BargainShare.com.
