Time for a new expression. Roommate Annoying.

By Andrew Pollack on 01/09/2006 at 09:26 AM EST

Ok, we all have heard of "Coyote Ugly" -- someone so ugly that if you were to wake up with them after going clubbing you'd gnaw off your own arm to avoid waking them as you got out of there. Its now time for a new expression.

"Roommate Annoying" will now officially mean someone who annoys you so completely that they no longer have to actually DO anything to be an annoyance. You're pissed off by their simple presence. You're pissed off even though you've let the other stuff they've already done go by. There's an important distinction here - you can't still be angry about something specific. No, to be considered "Roommate Annoying" the person has to be completely gone from your mind most of the time, but when they enter your senses by entering a room, calling you, or leaving evidence of their having been present you're set off on a simmering rage. That's "Roommate Annoying".

For those guessing, no, this has nothing to do with my wife or anyone else in my house. :-)

I was once offered 300 bucks to inform a co-worker that he really really smelt
bad - and this was in a very hot and crowded office.. Odd how I get all these

And then there's "Double Coyote Ugly" - you'd gnaw both arms off so she
wouldn't find you looking for a guy with one arm.....

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......

This piece of garbage is supposed to be a bearing. It carries the shaft which drives both stages of the auger. The shaft passes through the bearing (which is what bearings do) after the auger drive pulley as the shaft goes through the back (engine ......
