Hijack this, bitches

The First Annual International Hijack™ Day has arrived!


According to Nathan, this is International Hijack Day. According to Nathan the rules are as follows:

-Do not respond to me in my own thread. Go to one of the other participant's blogs and respond there.
-Do not respond to other participants in their own threads. Go to one of the other participant's blogs and respond there.
-If you're responding to a comment in a thread, do it somewhere else.
-If one of the participants has failed to put up a Hijack™ Day post, Hijack their most recent thread with your non-sequiter comments. Serves 'em right, I say.
-Post the rules so your readers know what the hell is going on. If you feel like operating by a different set of rules, fine. Just include them in your starting Post.
-You should either include all the links of participating blogs in your post or you can just link my post so that everyone knows who is playing.
- After posting all of this crap, make sure you include the "audience participation" part so that there's something to respond to. (Duh!)
- Creative flaming and name-calling are hereby deemed most welcome during the 24-hour playing period. I think being pissy out of context could be most excellent!
-Lastly, if I've included your blog and you didn't really mean to sign on, email me [Nathan, not Jim] and I'll remove you from the list.

What's the point of all this. Nothing whatsoever. As someone pointed out, its difficult to organize chaos. So, the hell with organization. Chaos for its own sake. I expect the resulting threads to look like a meeting of Bipolar Disorder meets Tourette's Syndrome suffers.

The players (in no particular order) are:

Who am I to say?

Random (but not really)
Smug Puppies
The Blog of Siram
Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men
Stonekettle Station
Anne's Public Storage Space
The Brain of Shawn
Snavely's Web Log
Polyboggimous - the guy who started this nonsense, really go here and hijack something

Audience Participation Portion:

Me, I'm a grits kind of guy, with butter, salt, and pepper. Cheese, American.

Oatmeal weirds me out.

  2. Although he was nowhere as horrible as I was expected him to be, Tom Criuse just wasn't right for Interview with a Vampire.

    He's not thin enough, and he's too short.

  3. Tania,

    what do you think about your IBM/Lenovo T60?

    I love my IBM T41, but I really don't like my IBM/Lenovo Z60. They changed most of the things I love about my T41, and I got stuck with a stupid widescreen (Hello? One of my primary jobs is word processing. This is DUMB.) So I'm curious about what Lenovo has done with the T series.

  4. The Blues is more than music, whether it's ethnic or not. I've lived the blues, but I can't sing the blues. "Got to sing the blues if you want to pay your dues, and you know it don't come easy." There's harsh blues and mellow blues, and they can be different people's interpretation of the same song.

  5. I think Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter is the worst casting ever. They nailed it with Hermione and Ron, but Harry was crap.

  6. Christ, I'm getting dizzy here.

    Attention: Keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. Not responsible for lost limbs....

  7. The biggest nutjob in the presidential race, in my opinion, is Ron Paul. The more I read his ideas, the more out-in-left-field he seems. It's too bad, because in theory I should be really enthusiastic about the most libertarian candidate in the race. There's just no compensating for some character flaws, though.

  8. This is getting kind of interesting but I forgot what I was about to respond to while deciding where to respond to it. I'm just kind of endlessly checking everyone's blog to see what's happening.

    I'm nominating Tania to stay up late and watch for any Asian or European players. I did specifically invite someone from Islamabad who posted a comment earlier today.

    First person to get a non-American to post (and give you credit) wins...something. Probably a hardy round of applause.

  9. Keanu Reeves was only perfect in Matrix because they gave him as few lines as possible. :p Did you ever watch Johnny Mnemonic? Talk about singlehanded deepsixing of what would've otherwise been a very good movie.

  10. I'm with Tom, Huckabee is easily the most Deadzone crazy in the bunch. The guy scares me more than the current asstard. I'll vote for Cannibal Hilter's Head in a Jar before I vote for Huckleberry.

  11. You people...

    Creative! I mean really creative.

    And time wasting. I really mean time wasting.

    Lets hear it for Nathan. Hip, hip... No wait. I'm going to Hijack Michelle.

    Ra, Ra, Ra!

  12. John, cool that you're playing along! I'm not sure I want to post random junk to your awesome discourse on entropy (although, in a twisted way, it might be appropriate) - do you want us to send some chaos your way?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Actually Nathan, it was because there was no edit button, no preview, and < and > got misinterpreted as being code markers. So I had to fudge it in by writing &lt; and &gt;.

    Also his online name is bakho, which is the Croatian spelling of "Bacchus". ;)

  14. Jeri,

    If you're having a superbowl party (I really don't care that much, since I'm not interested in either team, though I would like to see the Patriots lose, because I think their way is not very sportsman like) one of the food blogs I peruse has a fantastic looking recipe for seven layer dip.

  15. I haven't got the slightest idea what Kate was talking about over at Janiece's place.

    FTW!

  16. (grabs whipped cream pie, throws it in Nathan's face)

  17. I think Huckabee should win the Whack-Job contest because he holds the YEC Trump Card.

  18. I've had visitors from England, Croatia, Pakistan, New Zealand, and Australia. Only Pakistan has commented.

    Here's a Shout Out for Pakistan. C'mon Saqib. Join the train wreck.

  19. Michelle,


    A raspberry, as you have demonstrated has F's in it, not just P's, B's and T's. The lack of F's removes a significant portion of the slobberiness, and causes a lack of efficacy.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nathan, PPPPBBBBBBBTTTTTT :P is an emphatic raspberry. Come on, get with the program!

  21. With just under six hours remaining of The First Annual International Hijack™ Day, we have a few unrealized goals.

    1. We still need a furiner. C'mon guys and gals. Step up to the wicket (or whatever the hell you step up to over there).

    2. We haven't had anyone join the insanity who wasn't here from the beginning. A new player would be good. Somebody out there needs to Man-Up. (Girl-Up would be OK too. Is that an actual term?)

    3. We've had one or two non-participants make comments. Excellent. Let's have more of that.

    4. Shawn is still MIA. Wake up Shawn. We need you. How about a video-Hijack?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Paging Shawn - oh Shawn, your spam filter is going to kick in and start blocking our comments if you don't start playing Calvin-ball with us!

  23. Who else knows that today is Lego's 50th Anniversary?

    See Google's logo. It's a Lego logo.

  24. USians often ask interesting questions like: "Do you have cell phones in Eastern Europe?" or, even better: "You even have TVs there?!" To break the usual mystique the proud peoples of the US have about the people living outside their borders, here's an information for you...

    ...

    ...we do have pine cones in Croatia.

    (you're free to check my IP or whatever. HR usually means Croatia, not Hungary).

    ReplyDelete
  25. //Jim Wright - breaking into the Hijack for a moment//

    Confirmed: bakho's IP address is Zagreb, Croatia. Coolness.

    And bakho, I'm with you, kolega, I live in Alaska - I often get asked if we have cell phone service, what type of money we use, what language we speak, if I live in an igloo, etc.

    //returning to hijack mode //carry on//

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks, Jeri. Now I have "Blame Canada" stuck in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  27. MWT.

    Pine cones are emphatically not lame. I just don't discuss them in polite company.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anne, that's 'cause MWT is made of teh Awesome, and this really is pretty retarded.

    And where the heck's Shawn???

    ReplyDelete
  29. Shawn, the responsible one!?!?!?! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    He's got tropical dots stuck in his teeth. Which, yes, are just as sticky as a decade ago...

    (Not the ones actually stuck in his teeth, just in general)

  30. What I'd really like to know is whether an onscreen display of male buttocks is also considered an FCC indecency violation. Equal rights and all!
