When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I’ve seen the same effect when the old lady removes her bra.

    Me so sad.

  2. LadyFitzgerald

    @ ches. Npot half as sad as your wife must be for being married to someone as insensitive as you.

  3. streetwolf

    @LadyFitzgerald. What part of joking don’t you understand?

  4. r

    I don’t know it seems like they used the wrong music for this or just didn’t cue it properly –makes it all kind of lame.

  5. LadyFitzgerald

    @ streetwolf. Depreciating “joking” like that is never appropriate.

  6. Sel

    It can be appropriate, that all depends on how you see it. Life is too serious as it is. It’s not words intended to hurt or harm. At the very least it lacks tact in humor as a bad joke.

    Cool!! Woulda like to have watched all three but Mr Blue took off… lol

    Remember you two, past a certain age, gender irrelevent, if it doesn’t sag, it hurts….. We’re there. Laugh and lighten up a little. Life’s too short.. Have more wine.

    Great video.
    ches’ joke is good too. Not in poor taste at all. I’ve heard and seen much more crass humor on prime time sit-coms.

    Loved that video ! I’m almost convinced that everything does indeed look better in slow motion….

    I would suggest those who are easily offended either leave and view pages more conducive to their happiness or simply complain to H-T Geek that they HAVE been horribly offended by a silly comment.

  12. r

    …or have a shot or two of Bourbon & just relax

  13. Ushindi

    @r: Or that.

    ches, streetwolf, sel, bedlamb.

    you’re all anuses. ches refers to his wife as “the old lady” and her breasts in a public venue -what does that make ches? it makes ches a narrow witted idiot. streetwolf, sel, and bedlamb seem to approve with ches -what does that make them?

    LadyFitzgerald is right, ches is an insensitive high school dropout still hanging at the corner drinking beer ten years after.

    Ushindi, get a real name.

    You all need to relax… Joke was a joke, no one knows ches personally and in all likelyhood you will never ever meet him or is SO in person… sooo Have a Coke and a Smile and stfu =) *cheers*
