What does Ooolongftangftangbank stand for, anyway?

I strongly suspect I'm not the only halfbaker in Cambridge (UK) so if anyone would like to meet up for a pint, drop me an email.

Blatant self-promotion: We can all say stupid things at times. But have you ever heard someone say something so overwhelmingly, mind-numbingly, face-palmingly stupid that you felt the urge to share it with the whole world? If you have, let us know: http://www.whoinventedfoxes.com/

Some extra notes on some of my ideas:

Random Moth Dispensers for Cash Machines: The first idea I posted, which rapidly shot up to the coveted 2.5 croissant status, putting the lie to any claims that it's impossible for a newbie to post a well received idea.

Personalised Cat: Admittedly a bit trollish, but it was mainly an attempt to post a GM related idea that wasn't ridiculously handwavey and wasn't obviously utter nonsense, at least as far as my amateurish knowledge of the subject goes. Since [MaxwellBuchanan] didn't tell me that I was talking crap, I assume it must have at least some chance of working in practice, though I'm not sure I'd like to see anyone actually try it.

Hajjmanay, Squolf, Vibrella, Shoulder Mounted Periscope: All originally invented in the pub. It'd be interesting to know what proportion of bakery ideas were originally invented in the pub. I imagine it's a sizeable percentage.

Ultimate Bass: I'm of the slightly controversial opinion that there is no lower limit to human sonic frequency perception, given a signal of sufficient amplitude. At the extreme, DC is a steady breeze. (I suppose strictly, given sufficient amplitude, there's no upper limit either, but I don't think this would make for a particularly enjoyable performance.)
