Haven't heard? - Viacom opened up The Daily Show archive!
What that means is, that the about 9 years (is it 9?) of awesomeness is available to you, on-line, for free ...
You can read the full article here, and check out the cool timetable with videos there:
http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtmlI'm so proud I've posted a somewhat related to the site content news, I can cry.
We had about 72 comments, and almost as many opinions :)
My understanding was, that "couple of days" is never a fixed time frame, and it got a bit backed up by your comments (I counted more comments in favour of "not fixed" than the ones that meant exactly 2).
In all fairness - I should mention, that most of the natively-speaking-English countries seem to understand it as a fixed number. I guess that means something. (something different than that I was wrong tho) :D

Ok, I'm in this argument right now, and I need your help.
How do you understand "Santah will fix it in a couple of days".
Is it "... in 2 days" or is it "... in a few days".
I know, that in this case - its more like "never" or "at some point in the
unforeseeable future", but seriously - does "a couple of" mean exactly 2, or a small number - more than 1?

So, it's Tuesday. The day the new episode of Heroes comes up and the day I stay away from forums, irc, 4chan or whatever I would normally do to distract myself while at work. It's even been known for me to do some work on a Tuesday. And that's saying something.
Anyway, I came in, sat down and wondered exactly how boring would today be. And someone linked me to this game. It's a pirate game, where you control a ship and shoot down or board other ships for booty. It's repetitive, grindy and ugly, but hell it lost me the whole day - that's a winner in my book. Plus you can upgrade your ship after battles. It's really crap at the beginning but give it a shot.
The festivities are now over. The week-long-party in celebration of the second birthday of next-episode is now but a fond memory. We're sober (not that we ever got drunk, 'cause Santah is like married now and he never goes out) and it's time to go back to our regular programming. On that note, here's a cool Japanese flash game. It's much fun and I, being awesome and all that jazz, beat it at the hardest level yesterday. So... yeah, beat that. HAHA YOU CAN'T YOU CAN ONLY TIE ME!
