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.
