I don't know, but I am glad it did. This is by far the funniest thing I have ever read on 2+2. The story ran out of steam somewhere on page three, but up until then it was 96% pure hilarity.

Re: Roommate from Hell

I have always heard reference to the "lathe in the living room" thread, but never saw the thread titled, "lathe in the living room" so was not sure what everyone was talking about. All is now right in my world.

The Source of the Lathe?

At work, browsing through some copies of Hansard (the transcript of the Australian Parliament) I came across this entry:

Quote:


QUESTIONS IN WRITING
Veterans’ Affairs: Missing Property


(Question No. 5149)


Question

Mr Kelvin Thomson (Wills) asked the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, in writing, on 7 December 2006:

(1) For each financial year from 1 July 2004, what was the total cost to the Minister’s department of departmental property reported missing.
(2) For the financial year 2005-06, what items of property were reported missing and what was the cost of each.

Answer

Mr Billson (Dunkley—Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence)—The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

(deleted some irrelevant stuff)

Memorial assets unaccounted for or reported as missing for 2005-06 stocktake were:

Re: Roommate from Hell

I really wasn't interested in this thread because it's a pretty standard scenario.

But then I read the 2nd post.

Very glad I reconsidered. That wiki picture is history.

Maybe I'm not the sharpest gouge in the lathe tool drawer, or maybe Wikipedia fixed something before I could see, but what's the joke here? I followed the link hoping to see our lathe pic in Wikipedia, but it wasn't there.

if you look at the history, you can see the last edit "undid" a photo named "lathelivingroom.jpg". Obviously that is our pic of a lathe that we all love.

It only took 15 minutes for someone to edit the pic out. Wikipedia is serious business.

Looks like someone on OOT is a stickler for wiki standards. I undid his change. If you see a non-living room version of the lathe, go to history, and undo the change. BBV4L took over drawball, lets take over wiki (at least the lathe article).

Talk to him, see if he's receptive. If so, give him a chance to shape up.

If that doesn't work, then pay the cancellation fee and sign a new lease with the other guy included. It's worth it to avoid locking [censored] in your room and dealing with a [censored] roommate for another year.
I agree! I couldn't live with someone like that at all!

Re: Roommate from Hell

i got a gothic emo roomate that i dont talk to. I give the occasional head nod, but nothing more. And his girlfriend is always over. I just stick to my corner and read 2p2 and all my problems are solved

I put a copyright on it. Hopefully that will shut them up. Keep checking on the threads.
