Law

The current UK Chief Justice had a perfect name for the role - Igor Judge (known as Lord Judge)


..he'll now be replaced by the less fortunately named John Thomas.


Those not familiar with English literature or slang may not realise that this name became slang for male genitalia as a result of the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence, published in 1927/8

a) Someone thought this incredibly funny and submitted it
b) I had a keyboard malfunction when I posted it.

I'm not sure enough people actually read Husi to get anything to the front page, so it'll be an interesting experiment

srsly, this has got to be the worst voting system by the mariner (4.00 / 1) #9 Wed Jul 17, 2013 at 04:04:36 PM EST
ever implemented in software. this is what really killed kuro5hin. as your userbase shrinks, it becomes harder and harder to get anything to post, so authors are driven off and users depart for lack of content. meanwhile, the most important thing in building and maintaining blog readership is frequent and regular posting of new stuff.

it's a system that kills itself at the first sign of a downturn.

...in total. I know its not the most fascinating story in the world, but I think the thresholds should come down a lot at the moment...

Hell by kwsNI (4.00 / 2) #13 Fri Jul 19, 2013 at 08:27:22 AM EST
We could just make the diaries page the front page and it'd still be nearly static. We don't get that many posts in general and much of that is cellared/holed.

+1 FP, John Thomas content by jimgon (2.00 / 0) #11 Wed Jul 17, 2013 at 07:03:23 PM EST
Five years ago the company I was at hired a contractor named John Thomas.  One of the guys I worked with was originally from England.  We enjoyed it greatly.
