Belly Button Lint

What is belly button lint?

"A mixture of clothing fibers and dead skin is "surfed" into the typical belly button by mid-weight happy trails", suggests Karl Kruszelnicki of the University of Sydney. According to Wired, Mena Suvari and Britney Spears were spared this indignity, as were our Cro-Magnon ancestors. Why? Mena's outie doesn't collect it, Brit's piercing blocks it, and Ogg's thick body hair stopped fuzz migration.

Destroy a meeting - How To Mini-Series

We were about 9 people in the conference room, meeting to discuss a new web portal. About 20 minutes into the meeting, I just had to message (SMS) another colleague across the table.

Me: This is sooo, boring.
He: I don't care, as long as I get my salary. Do you think this will lead to a physical fight?
Me: Let hope so, at least a cat-fight...
He: I hope there is a fight. There are a couple of others here I want to beat up.

Well, that was the end of the meeting, as far as I was concerned. Choking, I had to leave the room, before everyone ended up with coffee sprayed from my nose...
