A certain amount of copycat behavior is to be expected within a group. Church members adopt doctrines, street gang members favor certain colors, and the left wingers continue to wear their sunglasses at night (apparently). Even among the iconoclasts and libertarians in the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers (MOB) you’ll find a degree of synchronicity.
While I don’t know that I’ll jump in with all ten fingers on the Nick Coleman “Fiskwah” (because it would mean having to pay attention to him), I’ve noticed a couple of fun interactive items being passed around the MOB that I’ve decided to try out here (each can be found individually in several places, but I picked up both in one place on Eckernet).
I blame the Minfidel
The Gematriculator has devised a way – perhaps a nefarious one – to evaluate the words on a blog or in a document to determine its percentage of “good” and “evil”. Being pure of heart, I had no qualms about running this blog through the process. Egad! Only 53% “good”? It’s gotta be the Minfidel’s postings that are bringing down the average!
Shall We Play a Game?
Name the first five movie or television quotes that come into your head (must be from different movies/shows). The first five things that come into my head really depend on what’s happening around my head at that moment, and since it turns out I’m one of the MOST EVIL blogs in the MOB (HT Sisyphus) I’ll go with these for now:
“Nee!” From…oh, do I really need to write it out for you?
“You gotta ask yourself…do I feel lucky. Well, do you, punk?” From “Dirty Harry.”
“Don’t tug on that. You never know what it might be attached to.” From “Buckaroo Banzai.”
“Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word “safe” I wasn’t previously aware of.” From “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” From “The Princess Bride.”
