Someone is going to hell for this sandwich. That’s all I’m saying.

I don’t know if you remember the news story about a London boy, who became a father at age 12. Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end there. Oh no, Marge, sit down and let me tell ya; it gets better. Apparently, the boy, (whom the media has identified in the article, but out of courtesy, I won’t identify here), made a discovery that I’m sure will not settle well with him at all. His girlfriend is the town pincushion, and he’s not the father after all. So, now this boy has had three harsh lessons with this experience:
- He found out his girlfriend is a major slut.
- He’s been outed by the media for having underaged, pre-marital sex.
- His noble act of taking care of his and his girlfriend’s child, even at such a young age, is no longer for the reasons he thought. The child is not his.
So, for saying that he was the father of this kid, he is rewarded by losing is anonymity. His fidelity to his girlfriend is rewarded by his girlfriend’s act of infidelity. His mistake is magnified under the lens of the media, and now weeks later we learn the awful truth, and hungrily lap up the sordid details of every last kernel.
This poor boy has been through too much already. It’s time for the news story to conclude, no matter what else happens. This kid needs his life back.
And just to end it o a ligher note, here’s a comic that perfectly explains the science news cycle.
I predict utter, dismal failure for CBS. It’s nice to know there’s no place for musical diversity on the radio, but plenty of room for a 24 hour psychic station. Maybe it can garner the same dismal ratings as 97.1 “The Ticket”, which is proof positive that 24 hours of sports doesn’t sell either.
Closest we have to a weather-celebrity here is Chuck. I’m not sure I could make it through a weathercast from Jim Kosek.
Not sure if I should file this in brilliant or silly, but it definitely is something to consider. I remember looking at the Verbatim Vinyl CD-Rs (that looked like vinyl, but are not playable) and wondered if it might be possible. Interesting concept.
James Randi has put the million dollar prize on the line against a set of $7,250 Pear Anjou speaker cables. Honestly, I don’t quite understand why people pay this kind of money for some proverbial electron superhighway. That’s why modern components are designed for 8 ohm loads. If anything, I wonder if cables like this would cause damage to your components (as if they do anything at all… I’d love to see what oxygen-free cotton looks like. )
