~*~ Pet Island ~*~
Are you a pet fan? A fan of pets? Do you kiss your pets more than you kiss people? Have you ever given a cat CPR? Do you sometimes wish you could have pot-bellied pig babies? You disgust me.
My new little buddy - If you're a GBS regular, you might want to skip this thread. That's right! Surt's new buddy is a SPIDER.
I may have to rehome my corgi. At the end of my rope. - We all know that Corgis are the official dog of Pet Island and Something Awful, but when your little pal is pissing and shitting everywhere he might not seem as cuddly. The Dregs is asking for advice, but the thread turns into a big debate about crating.
my cat eats fruit, your dog eats chapstick - are they retarded? - Animals eat some retarded crap, and this thread started by omoshiroi is all about sharing some of these strange culinary habits.
Catnip. That's right, I'm not dead yet. - If you haven't bought some of d8's fine kitty weed for your cats yet, you're a bad pet owner.
Adopting a stray kitten - good / bad idea? This would be my first cat. - This is the best time of year to adopt a random homeless kitty. But is there anything TheDude42 should be worried about by taking in a stray?

So you think your iPhone is all that? Well, check out this cell phone that I've installed Linux on! Sure, it was made in 2001... and it can't really make calls, BUT LOOK IT CAN DISPLAY A PENGUIN!
The Firefox extension thread - Get some tips on what addons are out there and which are really helpful. Let me sum up this thread in what you will see. REALLY KICKASS ADDONS -> Those same addons yet again -> Really specific and useless addons to 90% of the people out there -> Addon that turns any link or text containing the word "Bush" so it plays a fart sound when you click on it (not really, but I will give someone an account if you can make me this).
Hotline: A piece of software I wish hadn't died - (NOTE: No warez in this thread) Hotline was a really smooth almost OS in an OS system that let you download from other peoples' servers. Back then, they didn't have torrents or whatever and you had to bug the server owner's to let you in, which turned into a battle of who could such the owner's penis the hardest to get that incomplete porn and corrupted files.
Request a tiny custom app again Complaints may be given on why I include this as an awesome thread when I made fun of Firefox addons that have no purpose of exisiting for the majority of the userbase. To explain this I have to explain how this thread idea started. People wanted something made to make their very specific task easier and people wanted programming experience and where tired of sorting lists and making sierpinski triangles. So these two people came together and now we get applications that do what the requester asks for and programmers are now putting these programs under their belt as experience. The programmers make such apps as one that shuts your computer down after a specific amount of time to converting any file into the letters A through Q to deleting every single file on your system if you post a simple web page on your server in case someone stole it. They even made a website that lists all the requested programs for download. Neat!
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
