I saw this online somewhere and just wanted to say that I am really surprised we don’t see it happen more often now that Dell sells Ubuntu computers. The woman in the article ordered a dell laptop with Ubuntu installed for the operating system and when she got it she couldn’t use it because she needed windows to set up her Verizon internet. I could probably find a way around that and she probably could have too but didn’t.
Wow… I don’t know if it woke me up or I was awake but I heard a deep rumbling and thought that sounds like an earthquake. Well I got up and went on the computer and checked Millersville’s real time seismic data.. Something showed up.. So maybe it wasn’t my imagination. Checked USGS’s earthquake site and they showed a confirmed 3.3 earthquake just north of Mountville, pa Pretty cool! Here’s info for the [“Magnitude 3.
Yesterday afternoon and evening there was a fire in Conshohocken that went to 8 alarms according to the news. It has displaced over 300 people the news said earlier. It started in a 5 story building that was under construction. It seems like it quickly spread through the entire building and then the radiant heat caused it to spread to more buildings. The one video I saw of it just looked totally insane.
What is it with people in Lancaster county and being really stupid around railroad equipment? I heard this on the news last night and thought it couldn’t be true but the newspaper’s website said it is. They said they believe he climbed a metal tower and was trying to cut the copper to steal it. Didn’t he have enough common sense to realize that the wires are up so high for a reason?
Just thought this was an interesting event. CNN had reports of four million with out power then the power company said 800 thousand. Either way it reminded me of the blackout in the summer a few years ago that occurred in the Northeast. Having electricity is one of those things we take for granted but there may come a time when it’s not there. People don’t think of the other effects of an outage besides their lights going out.
A bill was introduced in Mississippi to ban obese people from restaurants. I can’t imagine this would pass. It seems too much like discrimination to me. Some people are overweight due to health problems they can’t control and it just seems unfair to not let them enjoy dining out. I don’t feel the state has the right to tell people where they can eat or tell the establishment that they can’t serve those people and lose the money.
Teen Girls Accused Of Setting Kitten Ablaze What the hell is it with people who burn or otherwise torture animals? The worst part is when they think it’s funny. It’s not funny to set a kitten on fire. What would be funny is if these dumb asses burned each other then that would be more fair. I hope they get the maximum sentence because I hate cruelty to animals. These girls can burn in hell.
Scientists Find Water on Extra-solar Planet This was pretty interesting. it really doesn’t surprise me at all since Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and Oxygen is the third most abundant element. Pretty cool that they found signs of water outside of the solar system. It’s things like this that make me really believe there is other life in the universe besides Earth. I’d be surprised if there were forms of life on Earth that we never thought were possible.
I over heard President Bush on the TV this morning. I sorta. I heard him talk about embryonic stem cell research. I’m not at all surprised he vetoed the bill that would allow research. I had to sort of laugh to my self when I heard him say something about moral values. I am not sure he even knows what that means considering some of his ideas. It’s sad to know that he’s unwilling to do something that has the potential to help so many people.
Double lives There was an article in the Sunday paper about Long’s Park in Lancaster. It was funny in that it mentioned “pickle parks” and men backing into parking spots. I really have no problem with gay men picking up other gay men even in parks but I don’t think it’s quite right for them to do it in a park, especially one like this park where people bring their kids to play.
How many times can you rob the same place and get away with it? For two stupid people 3 times in a week was too many. The robbed Cyber Warehouse last Tuesday and Wednesday. I heard about it on the news last night and couldn’t help but to laugh. Why would someone go back to the same place three times in a week. Wouldn’t they think the police might be watching?
The other day at Virginia Tech. A few people are already trying to blame video games. It’s ridiculous to try to blame someone on doing something like killing 30 people on something totally unrelated like video games. People will blame it on anything they can. I’m surprised I haven’t heard anything from the anti gun people yet. Nothing or no one but the shooter himself should be blamed. Other factors could have driven him to do it but in the end he’s the one that made the decision and went through with it.
Chinese Woman Falls 6 Stories, saved by pile of excrement I’m not sure how true this is but according to this article a woman was hanging laundry from the sixth story of a building in China and fell. They happened to be cleaning the building’s septic system when she fell so she landed in the crap. I wonder if she was thinking “oh shit!” when she hit the pile of shit.
Stupid Teenagers I just had to comment on this. If I were to do something illegal like break into someone’s house I would do everything I could to not leave any evidence. I wouldn’t want to get caught. Not everyone is so smart though. In Kentucky four teenagers broke into a house and then posted video clips of it on My space. I should know by not that that site tends to bring out the stupid in people but this is pretty bad.
A Driver who is legally blind (yes a legally blind driver) entered a pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle. He ran over a Penn State professor who was riding a bike. Anyways what the hell was this guy doing driving? I don’t know what how it effected him but Fry’s eye doctor said his left eye had 20/200 vision and with the other eye he could just count fingers and that eye was 3/200.
Police: Man swiped 1,500 women’s undies This guy stole all this women’s underwear from apartment complex laundry rooms. He had it at his house. The police said it they got 5 garbage bags full and 94 pounds of it. The good thing is the guy admits he has a problem. It’s surprising he got away with it so much.
Community Suggests Gun Possession Is Illegal For Residents I just saw this and thought it was pretty interesting and bullshit at the same time. It seems this Home owners association thought they should not allow residents to have guns on their property. This is a good example of why I’d never want to have to deal with one of these HOA. I really wouldn’t want someone else telling me what I can and cannot do on my own property.
Teen ‘sport killings' of homeless on the rise It supposedly started off as a game. The started throwing sticks and leaves at a homeless man after having a couple of beers with him. Then they started punching and kicking the homeless man. They also threw rocks and bricks at him and pounded him with a pipe and baseball bat. After that one of them smeared his own shit on the man’s face and cut him with a knife to see if he’s dead…
Mummified body found in front of blaring TV A mummified body was found sitting sitting in front of a blaring TV. He had been dead for over a year. It’s just strange that someone can be dead for over a year and no one noticed. He was only noticed because of a broken water pipe. The other weird thing is the electricity wasn’t turned off.
teens get 10 years for cooking puppy in oven Damaging computers, splattering paint on the walls and breaking glass of a newly refurbished community center wasn’t enough for these asses. They had to take a puppy and cook it and kill it in the oven. I hope a rabid dog chews off their balls in the future but then again even that would be too nice.
No Charges Filed After Accidental Car Theft Oops.. A woman accidentally stole a car in Ohio. She used her daughter’s key in a car that wasn’t hers. She must have been embarrassed. This is something I’d do. I actually did try to get into the wrong car in a parking lot more than once. Molly’s car is black. Their are a lot of black cars out there.
Barbaro the Kentucky Derby winning horse died today. It was breaking news.. I like animals but why was a horse dying so important? I assumed he was going to die sooner or later? Why was it even important enough to be newsworthy all this time? I am just surprised that he became such big news when there’s so many other more important things going on.
Saw on the news last night that thieves stole copper pipes from a vacant house. They took water and gas lines from the basement. What grabbed my attention is the fact that neighbors smelled the gas from the leak. I’m hoping the people who stole the pipes are working on becoming a Darwin award winner.
I just read about a dog being buried alive at Dog Buried Alive. The article says that neighbors heard the whimpers at 10:45 on Saturday night and thought it was just a whiny dog. The next day while working in the yard the heard it and looked over the fence and saw the dogs nose poking out of the ground. How the hell can anyone do this to any animal? I can’t believe the animal would’ve done something to deserve being buried alive.
Last night on the news they talked about an email scam where it claims to be from the FBI London office. They say that you are the target of a hit man and need to click a link so send them personal information to help them with the investigation. The fact that they showed that must mean people have fallen for it. I can’t believe how gullible people can be.
This “mother” was arguing with the child’s father and picked the kid up and threw him out in the street. I guess it’s fair to the kid to throw him.. What I find disturbing is that she’s not being charged with child abuse. I don’t think she should be allowed near any child and certainly not be able to have any more of her own. Some people just aren’t fit to have children.
