DMCA + Viacom = Bullshit

I've mentioned it before, and I'll probably do so again. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act sucks donkey balls. And so do most of the people that use it. It's poorly designed, vaguely written, and grotesquely overpowered. I offer up as evidence,… more »

Office Hypocrites

I and a couple other co-workers are "temporarily" relocated to another part of my building - away from our office mates. Usually it is fine. Relatively peaceful, in fact. However, the group who we are sitting near frequently has conference calls, out in… more »

There's a lot of things we take for granted until they're absent. Standing on a long line will make you wish for something to sit on. At a certain point we're willing to compromise and anything, even a fire hydrant will look good. After that initial… more »

He's still got it

Seen this morning on the commute to work: Mork and Mindy era glitter-blue Trans Am complete with ram, firebird decal and tinted T-top. Behind the wheel, white polo, avaitors and grecian formula. Buddy it may be almost thirty years late but you still got… more »

Dominant

Stop it. Please for the love of all that is sacred... stop it. Everything is not dominant. In the past month, you've said that this program was dominant, that band is dominant, those cars are dominant, and the headphones you wear are all dominant. And… more »

Word.

If you ask me to solve a problem, be prepared to hear an answer you don't like. If you ask for my help, be prepared to have the work done on my schedule – which is now rather than later. If you have received my help, don't be surprised if I turn you… more »

A State of Excess

Remember the Ren and Stimpy episode with Billy the Beef-Tallow Boy? The one that makes the statement that “if it's fried then Dad will eat it”? The cartoon goes on from there to fry all sorts of items, including non-edible things and Dad eats it and in… more »

Britney and her Brats

At least in England the "tabloids" are unabashed dens of inequity. That's what they are and no one, much less the publishers, maintain a false pretense to the contrary. Here in the US, however, with the exception of the oddly formatted, garishly colored… more »

If you bid up an item on ebay to a dollar within the suggested retail price of said item, not including the jacked up shipping, you deserve to be poor. Now stop bidding on my shit. Quit it. Retards. more »

In some cases, if someone is really stupid, I can see the point of this bit of advice. A good example are games like FEAR and Half-Life whose primary concept is single player. But on an MMO that can *only* be played online? You think people just sit and… more »

Sometimes you see something once and you think "huh, I must have been mistaken." Then as you begin to see it more and more you realize that things just aren't so right. Current case in point - jackass supercycle types wearing shorts, t-shirt, helmet and… more »

Jackanape

Dirt caked. A rough powder under rubber and canvas - the daily chore of dressing. The one pair of shoes. The one pair of jeans and sometimes a shirt. Work? Is there any? The tires of the blue Dodge sag under the weight of refuse. Garbage. Tools. Trade.… more »
