Exposing Stupidity Around The World...
FFS this is just getting plain STUPID. Wired News is reporting a young man had his Diploma witheld because he wore a BOLO instead of a TIE. What in the hell is this country coming to when assholes like this have control over our children. I can understand if he wore something OBSCENE or distracting like a strobe light, but FFS he wore a BOLO. It's a type of tie, dont agree, take a look at the wikipedia definition.
Well some good news. Some of the cast (the most importaint ones IMNSHO) of The Screen Savers have created a new show called This Week in Tech. The Screen Savers was one of the few true tech shows on telvision. When G4, a gaming network run by comcast bought out ailiing TechTv it sounded the death knell for for the show as sure as a back alley coathanger abortion. G4 (now G4TechTv) mangled the show into a teen targeted game and T & A show with hardly any worthwhile technical content. Then then even dumped the show name in favor of "Attack Of The Show". This was probably some soon to be in the unemployment lines middle management idea of trying to escape any stigmata left in The Screen Savers name.

Well yet again a TV network has canceled one of the few shows my wife and I enjoyed. So here is a big finger to you FOX I hope you accidentally sit on it. Only an asshole network would constantly pull and reinsert shows like FOX. Lord knows we really need another season of the Family Guy or some shit like that. If you care to write here you go;
Contact FOX about Tru Calling

Ok, big pet peeve here, and the title sums it up nicely. I used to have a sign that said just that over my desk at my work. My single biggest bitch in the world is wasting MY time doing something for SOMEONE ELSE and then having them piss all over it.
News out of Columbus, a student was suspended recently after using his cell phone during his lunch. The school (Spencer High School in Columbus) evidently has a zero tolerence policy to using cell phones during school hours. They say they only even let them possess them on campus for students to use for cordinating with parents for after academic events. The student in question was talking to his mother, who is currently serving this country in Iraq.....
From the stupid side of things for the week, Apple computer is being sued by Tiger Direct for trademark infringement. Allegedly consumers are confusing a computer/component retailer with the upcoming Apple OS. In a move to protect the abjectly stupid...., Tiger Direct is suing over what is most likely people too stupid to use Google to find their way to Tiger's web site in the first place. Anyone stupid enough to confuse a retailer with an OS is also likely to climb into a cage with a real tiger.
