Does This Page Use Cookies?

No, it doesn’t. I just needed a place to rant about the European Cookie law. I mean, come on, did the politicians even understand how Cookies work? I hope they feel ashamed of how they introduced Cookie-popups to every single website, just when we figured out how to block ad popups. So, no, there are no Cookies used here – I just wanted to write that text above. What do you say? The privacy policy is exactly the one text nobody ever reads, so this rant is absolutely misplaced? Well, YOU are reading it right now, aren’t you?

Here’s the Problem

Light blogging for the past few days — okay, honestly, I’m just a light blogger.

So, here’s something to help get back in the swing of things: a heartwarming tale of a poor, oppressed woman who’s just a victim of the system — she’s 37, has 15 kids, and expects somebody to be held accountable for, uh, I’m not sure what exactly.

As far as I’m concerned, she needs to be handed a mirror.

Watch the whole thing and don’t forget to take your blood pressure medication.

Overreaction, Line One

From The Smoking Gun, via Borepatch, comes a tale of a fellow — Michael Alan Skopec — who, well, has difficulty with thinking. Turns out that Michael had some trouble with his iPhone. So, instead of heading to Google or, even better, Apple, he decided it would be best to just call 911 repeatedly.

He was arrested for Disorderly Conduct. That makes sense. I mean, after all, they don’t have a charge for Felony Stupid.

The police report describe the nature of his broken iPhone, but I imagine that it was something like, “Oh, you need to type your password to download When Harry Met Sally and Thelma & Louise from the iTunes store,” so he probably lost his mind and started calling 911 while his mother was yelling down to the basement to calm down.

That guy is one of those people who needs a handler to keep him from drowning in his soup. And, because he has demonstrated such incredibly poor judgement, I’d strongly recommend that he be restrained from operating any complex machinery, like, for example, nuclear missiles, automobiles, cordless drills, and forks.

Google Reader – At It Again

Looks like Google’s at it again with a few more modifications to the Google Reader. I’m seeing site icons for followed feeds and sites, a little red thumper when refreshing feeds, and now a G+Share button.

Are they going to update keyboard commands for efficiency, too? Maybe bring back my shared items so I could at least harvest the data?

Nope, not yet.
