The #MarkFishChallenge is the funniest thing on the internet right now
I nominated myself for a Darwin Award this week. My mom brought us some prickly pears and showed us how to peel them using a knife and fork. Frozen prickly pears are delicious so on Monday I decided to peel some. I started out using the correct technique, but after 3 prickly pears, I thought it would be much easier to just pull the skin off with my bare hands. By number 6 I had realised the error of my ways. My hands were on fire and filled with tiny thorns. I spent the rest of the evening removing the thorns using a torch and a pair of tweezers. As I type this I’m still finding thorns. What I’m getting at is that we all do dumb things and then hilarity ensues, just like the #MarkFishChallenge.
? The one chainmail WhatsApp message to end all chainmail
I am where long chainmail messages come to die. If I had a Bitcoin for every time someone sent me an urgent message and then 10 minutes later another to apologise and let me know that the previous message was a scam, I’d have a lot of Bitcoin.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
