theghostofallexander: zodiacbaby: prominent-nipple: oh my gOD LMFAOOLL WHAAATT oh my god : Paris Hilton KA PA D.O.B. 1981-02-17 Soclalite Actor TV Personality MEAN 33% OK 10% NICE 67% Best known for: The Simple Life Hilton sex tape Paris Hilton's My New BFF SHARE YOUR STORY Stories Random Things My Step Sister Told Me Some random things told to me by my step sister who used to work for Paris: Paris has a room full of vintage radios from ww2 aircraft and the like. She restores them. There is always a smell of burning coming from the room. Nobody is allowed in. She has a telescope on a platform. My sister was often required to climb onto the roof with beef sandwiches and a flask of tea as Paris was up there looking at the sky. She also has 100's of notebooks full of numbers which somehow relate to what she sees through the telescope Behind closed doors Paris only wears pajamas which she gets delivered from the British store Marks and Spencers She doesn't come across as dim like she does when the cameras are around. She's very quiet. She bought my sister a playstation and some reindeer socks for Christmas Saved Me In Germany And Towed Me To A Garage My car broke down on an autobahn in Germany. Managed to coast to sort of layby thing with a burger van and toilets in it. I was in a bad state because I can't speak any German, my phone had no credit and I didn't have my breakdown details with me so I had no idea what to do. I unsuccessfully asked the guy in the burger van for help and he apparently didn't speak English so rather pathetically I started to cry. Then this big old American guy appeared and offered me a cup of tea in his motor home (it wasn't proper tea but that's besides the point). In the van was another guy and friggin Paris Hilton! I kid ye not. She was sweet and made me a sandwich and gave me a hug then proceeded to talk to me for 30mins about some old radio bits she'd bought in some show in Freidrichshafen. I didn't understand most of it. She said that when she wasn't working she liked to drive about Europe going to radio and air shows as if she put a hat on nobody ever recognised her. Then they towed me to a garage at about 40km per hour (scarey stuff on the autobahn). Oh yeah and she sat in my car and asked if it was ok before she smoked. theghostofallexander: zodiacbaby: prominent-nipple: oh my gOD LMFAOOLL WHAAATT oh my god

browsedankmemes: Men talking about the women they love via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2ZuCMd2: GrizFyrFyter1 102d My wife never finished a cup of coffee or a cup of tea if didn't make it for her. . I asked about it t once and her response was "it just taste better when you make it". Always makes me feel better seeing an empty cup. the_dapper_minion 102d I often come to bed after her, and she's a pretty heavy sleeper. Without fail, I'll get settled in to bed and she does what I call the reach. Where she'll start swatting around to find me. Once a body part is located she attempts to crawl into my skin. All while asleep. Lol most nights I just lay there and kinda chuckle. It's the little things. Mitz_Fitz 103d Destroyed my knee a couple years ago in a dirt bike accident. On the bad days she will rub balm on it and lightly sing to me. Soothes all the anger and pain I have. God I'm lucky. Thanks for reminding me wardog1066 102d 3 1 Award Not so grand as some of the gestures noted here, but when my wife and I go shopping and get separated we will find each other again and she always smiles when she sees me. Sometimes I'll wander off just so we can bump into each other and I get to see that smile. I've never told her this for fear she will become aware of it and stop.28 years and she still smiles when she sees me. I get misty if I think too hard about it. browsedankmemes: Men talking about the women they love via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2ZuCMd2

Wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit by MightHaveMisreadThat MORE MEMES: 71% 3:21 X r/cats Posted by u/AlAboard BS Express 20m How do you bathe a cat? I moved into a new house and I'm having some new challenges. Discussion Aww I used to bathe my cat in my old appartment without issue, because we had a soaker tub and the high walls made it much easier for me to keep him in with minimal struggling. At my new house the walls of the tub are very shallow, and he is constantly struggling/clawing/ trying to escape. I read that cats prefer hotter water, so I've been adding a cup of Sriracha to the water, but that only seems to have further upset him. Suggestions? t Vote Share Award 11 BEST COMMENTS williwcally 12m Why are you bathing him so much??? MarkimusPrime89 8m You never need to bathe a cat. In fact, it's recommended that you don't. So basically.... Just don't do it and you're good! Lol But in all seriousness, only bathe them if they get filthy or need a flea treatment or somethi smell, consider a better diet. The only help they need grooming is a brush every now and then. Good luck! Glad I could save you so much work... Hahaha If they t 3 Reply AllAboard BS Express.6m He goes outside and literally rolls in the dirt/overripe cherry mess in our backyard. So he gets pretty filthy. He has even come in with a used condom stuck to him. t-1 woahitscaleb : 2m Add a comment Wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit by MightHaveMisreadThat MORE MEMES

A true programmer: Hacker Scripts Based on a true story: build engineer has left for another company. The dude was literally living inside the terminal. You know, Xxx: OK, so, our that type of a guy who loves Vim, creates diagrams in Dot and writes wiki-posts in Markdown... If something anything - requires more than 90 seconds of his time, he writes a script to automate that. xxx: So we're sitting here, looking through his, uhm, "legacy" xxx: You're gonna love this xxx: smack-my-bitch-up.sh - sends a text message "late at work" to his wife (apparently). Automatically picks reasons from an array of strings, randomly. Runs inside a cron-job. The job fires if there are active SSH-sessions on the server after 9pm with his login. xxx: kumar-asshole.sh scans the inbox for emails from "Kumar" (a DBA at our clients). Looks for keywords like "help" "trouble", "sorry" etc. If keywords are found - the script SSHes into the clients server and rolls back the staging database to the latest backup. Then sends a reply "no worries mate, be careful next time". xxx: hangover.sh another cron-job that is set to specific dates. Sends automated emails like "not feeling well/gonna work from home" etc. Adds a random "reason" from another predefined array of strings. Fires if there are no interactive sessions on the server at 8:45am. xxx: (and the oscar goes to) fucking-coffee.sh - this one waits exactly 17 seconds (!), then opens a telnet session to our coffee-machine (we had no frikin idea the coffee machine is on the network, runs linux and has a TCP socket up and running) and sends something like sys brew. Turns out this thing starts brewing a mid-sized half-caf latte and waits another 24 () seconds before pouring it into a cup. The timing is exactly how long it takes to walk to the machine from the dudes desk. xxx: holy sh*t I'm keeping those XX: A true programmer
