Vomiting, Barfing, Puking, …

I found this comment on a Facebook post:

I wish there was a barfing emoticon…

I wish there was a barfing emoticon…

It got me thinking, somewhere there needs to be a collection of barfing images you can paste into the comments section on Facebook and other places, even here if you want to.

So I went to Google Images and did a search. Here are a few that I found, cleaned up, edited, and resized, and some that I made myself.

Cool Characters for Facebook, Etc.

I can make fancy characters to put in Facebook posts and other places where I’m limited to characters with no formatting options.

This is your basic set of alphanumeric characters: the capital letters A–Z, the lower-case letters a–z, and the digits 0–9. The conversions only work on alphanumeric characters.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 0123456789

Most of the double struck letters are mathematical symbols, but they look cool.

With the conversion to small caps letters, only the lower-case letters get converted to small capital letters.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ ᴀʙᴄᴅᴇғɢʜɪᴊᴋʟᴍɴᴏᴘǫʀsᴛᴜᴠᴡxʏᴢ 0123456789

The fake Cyrillic writing is just what it says: fake Cyrillic writing. It doesn’t really mean anything in Russian, Ukrainian, or any other language.

The Nintendo Glock and the Glocktendo

Precision Syndicate, LLC, a custom gun manufacturer in Odessa, Texas, modified a Glock to resemble the famous “Nintendo Zapper” gun that came with the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view of guns), it’s a one-off build and will not be produced for other people.

They posted a couple of photos of the Nintendo Glock on Facebook and received so many hate comments that they issued a press release that said:

In light of the “Nintendo Glock” drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please… keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.

Precision Syndicate isn’t the first gun maker to make a real Nintendo Zapper gun, but this is the best one I’ve seen. Just don’t use it to play Duck Hunt.

If you need a Glocktendo, Retro Armory will do a full build to turn your Glock into a Glocktendo for $600.00. It’s not quite a realistic-looking as the Nintendo Glock, though. On their website they say, “All accessories will be Cerakoted in Glocktendo Red, the lower receiver will be Cerakoted in an 80’s Gray and the upper finished in a lighter gray.” You can also get a Glocktendo Slide Only.

Wow! She really did love me with all her heart.
