    When you go to the trouble to print screen, paste and save someone else`s work to post, at least put in a watermark to the original website instead of being lame and not.

    David Thorne is a talented comic asset on the internets, and I`m sure you`ve already read a lot of his work uncredited. Now read it all on his own website! He even has 2 books published off his webste.

    Never post David Thorne`s fake attempts at humor ever again. He had us going for a while but then we figured out that they were fake and he was writing both sides of the exchange after three or four of these. THEY`RE NOT REAL

    SubstanceD did you check the credits link? I always give credit when I know who it is and his credit was there the whole time. I am a big fan of his.

    Yeah, security. He walked right in, works great. Least he could try is an automatic light. I have the same kind of neighbors with outside lights too bright and dim bulbs inside the house. Sorry to have to take the Aussie`s side, but some dumb ass `merikans deserve it.

    This person is just a douche. Normally the people that are getting the dose of sarcasm are wrong and deserve it, but you really can`t just take someone`s lamp if it`s on their property..and no need to be a dick about it if the person was cooperating.

    The correct way to do things: Talk to your neighbor. Ask him to adjust the angle, take it down, or let me put a blinder on it to block the light that does reach my house.

    The fun way: This.

    @ TKD Master,
    You`re right but an even more correct way to do things is to consider whether you`re causing a problem with your lighting, etc., to start with. Adjusting the angle as you suggest, of course, is a sensible solution since security probably doesn`t require, in the vast majority of cases, lighting up someone else`s house.
    This was more fun, though. You`re right about that, too!

    STFU you job stealing alien and deal with our big, energy wasting floodlights that don`t let you sleep at night. If you survived the dangerous poisonous species from your country, then you`re tough and can handle radiation. Or go back to Austria with the kangaroos and Koalas.
