Rory and I and a guy with a camera filmed some videos about TechEd, conferences, architecture, technology, Don Box, underwear, whiteboarding, love, life and Exchange installs. Here's one. There may be more - watch for them! Actually, I'd love it if so many people watch this video of Rory and I in the bathroom that the server hosting it goes down! :)

Please spread it around and Trackback/Pingback it. If you can't view it below, you can download it here.

Nice. I wanna know what Rory did with that phone afterward. It had to be bad.

Awesome, guys.

I especially like the fact that Scott had to flush Rory's urinal for him. Very true-to-life.

Cool! I immediately filed it under x:\home\Microsoft\Porn.....

(The production values ALMOST exceed those of the Return of the Sith trailer I just saw! Except I didn't see any light sabers in this trailer...)

Now, don't let these praises go to your heads...

"Rory doesn't flush? Eww... LOL"

I do, but it's...

...complicated.

I usually need a lot of space so that I can do this waist-high karate-kick thing so that I don't have to touch the flusher-thingy, and there just wasn't enough room with the camera there.

Hence Scott's help.

But I *totally* flush.

I swear.

I love flushing.

"...waist-high karate-kick thing" ?

Would that be Jedi-style? or just normal David Carradine style? (Jean-Claude Van Damme style looks like it would hurt...)

Reminds me of years ago whilst occupying a "workspace", a co-worker came in and decided to do the pee-pee-shy thing and whiz into one of the toilets instead. I heard him do his usual karate-kick of the handle...quickly followed by the sound of keys sliding off his belt hitting the ceramic while the water was going 60MPH.....soon followed by a lot of colorful language that can't be repeated in this unmixed company. To make things worse, he had his (only) safe deposit keys and car alarm key on that ring, which cost him a bundle to get drilled out. (He also lost the exterior door keys to the data center in which we worked, which was the world's largest. Our Italian Boss-Man was NOT impressed...)

There's a moral in that story somewhere...like, beware of swirling water if you raise your leg with your pants undone.

Of course, this is the same dumbass that lost no less than 3 pagers out in the middle of Lake Erie (er, The Great Swamp Erie) when on call over weekends one summer... He certainly had a thing with water!

Ah man, Scott pulls Rory's phone out of his pocket while they are both pissing. Dude wash your hands.

Awesome guys. I can't wait to see more.

HILARIOUS! Although I couldn't hear the dialogs too well...had to turn the vol all the way up. But it was totally messed up. "Nice unit" :-) Thats "toilet" humour right there! :-)

Very cool! Both Tiffany find your antics to be most amusing. :)
