Celebrating 10 years of TSP

In the grand traditions of this blog I planned a massively self indulgent spectacular and then completely forgot about it.

So instead of a 5000 word essay on why the world should revolve around me let's celebrate the wonderful decade (or parts thereof) which we've spent together with this picture.

Wild scenes

Happy anniversary (last Monday) you magnificent bastards!

P.S - If you haven't been around the whole time and are looking at the archives the reason that there's a big fat gap in 2004 isn't that I gave up, it's because I entrusted all my archives to some old mate who I'd never met and then he disappeared off the face of the earth before I had the chance to back it all up. NEVER AGAIN. Until Blogger implodes, I lose absolutely everything and end up in a mental home.

20 to 1: More poorly named terrorists

I think we determined in the original post on this topic (November 2010) that I was well against the activities and shenanigans of the groups listed and that there was no need for a knock on the door from ASIO, so instead let the disclaimer this time show that I'm not judging the activities of the bad shits organisations in the list so there's no need for them to send me exploding mail.

So, with that in mind we turn to the question of what you decide to name your group after deciding on a spot of revolutionary action, extortion or just plain mischief. Much like sporting team nicknames all the good ones are already taken and newcomers to the field are lumped with forced, terrible names that deserve no respect like Heart, Blaze, Power etc.. etc..

At least one thing you can see for the evil shits below is that at least they came up with the names themselves and if they did end up sounding like an MLS team it wasn't because the marketing department told them to.

Also as a special treat I've thrown in the name of a Toto song. See if you can pick it without hovering over the links.

Twitpic Shenanigans (Part Two)

UPDATE 2: Now with working pictures. Well worth the wait said nobody.

UPDATE 1: New Blogger has stuffed this up for EVERYONE. Disregard and I'll upload the pictures somewhere else eventually. Meanwhile enjoy the captions and attempt to picture what would have been shown.

Last time we left the story somewhere in 2009. Now none of those images work any more, so get into these ones instead. Meanwhile it seems that since the last post they've implemented the god awful, shitbox new version of Blogger. Not entirely sure what was wrong with the old one, but it made writing this a pain in the clacker. Again the number in brackets denotes how many days ago it was posted, which as before must be absolutely fascinating for absolutely nobody but me.
