jewel on line at last

This is my personal weblog where I get to be as crabby as I want to be.

Idiocy

So, I'm going to start keeping track of stupid headlines. Like this one I just saw:

Flu Pandemic could hurt US Economy



Well, duh!! Think about the word pandemic Yes, that might well be disruptive, and to more than the economy, too. How about a headline that's actually news, you idiots. You know, something we don't already know (because if it's glaringly obvious, then it's not news.)

General crabbiness level: extremely high.

Count Up

So, the unofficial count of unsolicitied merchandise on its way to me:

  1. IPod NANO: 10,534

  2. IPod Shuffle: 5,463

  3. Xbox 360: 9,503



For crying out loud. Even though my emails have Postini (it's the primary reason I stick with my web host)this is just ridiculous. If this were anything but the crabby blog, I would be singing the praises of Postini. But it's not, so I won't.

Please, stop the madness! Are there really that many idiots thinking they'll get anything but ripped off?
