It used to be that "computer games" required a "computer". You know in the classical sense, like one with a keyboard and maybe some sort of pointing device. Something you could pop the hood on and add maybe update your RAM or video card. Basically none… more »

I would really like to see the following question asked of all the pathetic . . . I mean presidential candidates: "What job(s) did you have that didn't require a suit?" I do not currently work at a job that is physically demanding for crap pay, but I… more »

Stuff like this leaves me conflicted: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=504784&in_page_id=1770 On one hand - the couple gambled and it looks like they beat the odds. On the other, they have likely racked up… more »

I've been having problems with my internet connection. Through trial and error I realized that it likely had something to do with my wireless adapter. I figured it has a 3 yr warranty and I've had it little more than one year, so lets talk to the… more »

This is probably more in the "irk" class of woes than in the "rant" class. It has to do with a lack of consistency in how states are ordered in a drop-down list. So why is this a problem for anyone? It's a problem for me because I do most of my shopping… more »

A while back, I pointed out that Britney's Mom is writing a book on parenting. Link: http://www.worldofsuck.net/index.php/Odessa/2007/11/03/move_over_dr_spock#comments I just wonder what the news of her little 16 yr old darling becoming a Mommy herself… more »

While he is pointing fingers at Romney and his religion, the Baptist minister has a skeleton or two in his closet. His son was suspected of hanging a stray. The animal was sick, so I guess it was all right to kill it by hanging. Then Daddy helped make… more »

http://gothamist.com/2007/12/21/stiffer_penalti.php Once while I was eating dinner at TGIFs in Time Square this guy flashed a chick through the window between the lobby and the bar, then went outside and did it again. I almost went out and told him that… more »

and the city wants delis to "fire" them. They complain very little, don't demand vacation time or O/T pay, and may even put a smile on a few customers' faces. They are the deli cats. http://gothamist.com/2007/12/21/cats_in_delis.php I have been in delis… more »

Is Saudi Arabia getting liberal?

The Qatif girl was pardoned - she is the 19yr old gang rape victim who was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 20 lashes. The King pardoned her after much of the world criticized the sentence. Although some human rights critics think it isn't enough, it… more »

I think we can all agree that he obviously has little regard for the lives of the dogs he had, raised and fought. Now all of a sudden, a black author equates outrage over his crimes to racism.… more »

So, Verizon ran a traffic service you could dial with "*1". It was a good service, a really good one. You entered a major route and then the number 1 for north or 2 for south (same with east or west) and they told you if there were any delays, how long,… more »

This Will Suck For Some

http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/ Propaganda? Unveiling truth? Biased? It's just as believable as an invisible monster in the sky. Be patient. It's two hours long. more »

If you *miss* your exit, just fucking get off at the next one and turn around mmm'k? Ripping over three lanes and slamming on your brakes, bringing a moving lane of traffic to a jacking halt... while you force your way into the the exit ramp is *not*… more »

You know there's really no damn excuse for not cleaning off the top of your car when there's a foot of snow on it. None. The best possible ending is when the idiot stops suddenly and gets his windshield covered with snow as it all slops onto his hood.… more »

A few days ago someone had a gripe about Romney. I have a gripe about Huckabee. This former Baptist minister asked Romney if Mormons (by the way, it is actually LDS) believe that the devil (Lucifer) and Jesus are brothers. It would be so nice if these… more »

Look, I appreciate when people give me a break when I'm trying to merge but honestly there are people with no damn common sense on the road. These are the people with only one person behind them and then a fifty mile open gap. Listen Buddy, I know you… more »

This little slogan has the panties of a few feminists in a bunch. Why? Because it was printed on the front of undies for pre-pubescent girls - "When you have Santa" was printed on the back. They thought it sent a message to young girl that they could… more »

I know what you're thinking when you see that title. Here he goes again. Another rant blasting the faithful for believing something. Perhaps in part. Really, I'm blasting one faithful. Normally I try not to narrow it down so much, but this one is… more »

I really dislike the whole celebrity worship mentality and I typically pay it no attention. I never realized that the budding fashionistas, the Olsen twins, were shamelessly bringing fur to a whole new generation. A generation that doesn't know the… more »

We have a history making presidential race here in the US - a white woman and a black man are strong candidates for the democratic party. The closest we had come previously was Mondale/Farraro - and that would have been a woman vice-president. We also… more »

To Catch a Predator

To catch a predator is a set of 'investigative reports' run by NBC Dateline. Basically, they film an incident where a sting operation is run on someone online in the hopes of catching pedophiles trying to find kids to have sex with. In a sad statement… more »

I appreciate when the doctor's office calls to remind me of an appointment. However, calling and leaving a message on my answering machine at home about an appointment that is the next business day is stupid, especially with that little caveat that if I… more »

I hate The View

I don't watch it. I try to ignore it. This panel of women no doubt says a million things that are perfectly reasonable. I don't know or care. But then every so often, the show gives is a segment so amazingly stupid, one can not help being aware of it.… more »

I am really getting sick of seeing those little dancing people, real or animated, on the mortgage ads. I get it - your rates are so wonderful they make people want to dance. I just want to whack those little people over the head to make them stop doing… more »
