ThatNiceMan asks: Have you ever been talking with people down the pub when somebody throws such a complete curveball (Sample WTF moment: "I wonder what it's like to get bummed") that all talk is stopped dead? Tell us!

What the...
So you're 'heading up' a meeting and you need to borrow a laptop off one of the attendees to be able to show everyone a website you've been working on. Now let's say the person whose laptop you borrowed has set google up to automatically display a list of the six most visited sites when they open their browser.

Imagine everyone's surprise when, on the 60-inch LCD display, the 15 or so attendees are suddenly presented with most visited sites including Gaydar and others around the same genre. Basically large penises everywhere.

Cue the silence and then the horror of then having to fumble around the thumbpad in an attempt to click a tiny little cross in a javascript popup window which appeared just above one of the large penises.

In an attempt to break the deafening silence someone speaks up. "GAYDAR???", at which point the aforementioned owner of the laptop lunges forward, grabs the computer and frantically announces "Yes, but not in work time". More silence and bemusement then follows.

Absolutely the weirdest meeting I've ever attended.
