shift+delete

For the 99.9% of you, this post won't matter.

But I've never been happier in my life to know the shortcut key to permanently* deleting a file from my HDD.

What file? Topgear Australia Season 3 EP00. Even with the regular TG cast, it was uninteresting - and I put that mildly. I had to watch it 3 times to get through the whole show once. And the whole time I was thinking to myself, "I now know what Hell will be like - my eyelids stapled open in front of a 100 foot screen of Australian Top Gear on endless loop."

I will never download another episode of TG Australia in my life.

The End.

*Yes, I know that delete in Windows isn't really gone, be safe in the knowledge that I will never try to recover that data.

manual-tune

Can a voice be surgically deepened? Because I seriously sound like a hyperactive pubescent chinaman when I talk.

I recorded myself the other day, and when I heard what I sounded like on the phone, I was aghast with just how stupid I sound in real life.

I've always known I had a "higher" voice, but I never thought I sounded like that. And I have a really bad Chinese accent when I talk. I totally sound like Jackie Chan.

Sigh.
