The exultant ones are boring, and the agonized ones far more fun.

Reminds me of the time in Grade 10 business class (definitely in the top 3 stupidest classes in my school experience) when we, on the last day, watched Wall Street, as to learn about business ethics, but we ran out of time and the class was dismissed only just as Charlie Sheen was about to get arrested.

mehlt, Sunday, 12 August 2007 17:30 (twelve years ago) link

Alright, maybe I lied, and we watched until he encountered the police, and was obviously about to get arrested, but still it's a funny scenario to think about.

i didn't see it behind the photobucket watermark!

but i like it :)

you should use imgur to post images! photobucket is an internet wasteland these days, bought out a dozen times and eventually sold to whatever company the agonized stock traders are mad about now

wait, weird! now your image you posted above does NOT have the watermark on it!

i wonder if they keep a watermark on it unless a certain amount of people view the original link or something? i swear, just a few minutes ago i scrolled up and it had a giant watermark plastered all over it and the underlying image was blurry
