Capital One hates Deaf People

11/30/06
Did you know that deaf people can use the phone? It's called a relay service. They type into a special keyboard and the relay operator speaks for them. Well, apparently Capital One customer service didn't know either and thus violates the Americans with Disabilities Act by telling this girl that she is shit out of luck with her card.

Although this is probably to protect against fraud, by law, they need to have alternatives for the Deaf.

Scientist wants to send a particle BACK TO THE FUTURE!

A mad scientist who will probably soon tell the world that we will "rue the day," is planning to test a theory in quantum physics in which a particle will change before he changes it. Eh? Yeah...Quantum Physics is weird.

The story of a Star Wars Virgin

Can I get this cheaper?

11/24/06
Today when you go shopping with the rest of the fools braving Black Friday malls, you should remember the following phone number: 1-888-DO-FRUCALL. If you call that number, it will let you know if the item you have in your hand is available cheaper online...and for what price. Perhaps I should have posted this yesterday.

PS3 line waiters prefer video games to sex

11/22/06
Adam Carolla, formerly of the Man Show, sent Ron Jeremy to a crowd of losers waiting in line for days for the possibility of buying a PS3. Ron offered anyone who left the line an all expenses paid trip to the Bunny Ranch(a legal whorehouse) in Nevada. No takers. I guess the nerds like their games more than losing their virginity.

Thinking you can get smarter will make you get smarter

11/21/06
Not sure they can be helped

Turns out positive thinking really does work. Several recent studies (the first one and the others that we able to verify it) have shown that if you believe you can get smarter, you will. So you better convince that discouraged son or little sister that they need to believe they can get smarter (and do better in school) before they can actually do it.

Yes, yes...all the PS3 hoopla has had people robbed, shot with bb guns and smashing their new cutting edge PS3's. A lot of people took to the internet to try and buy theirs. Like this guy, who bought 3 Sony Playstations instead of the Playstation 3. That's right. He paid $900 for 3 consoles that cost less than $100 each.

UCLA student tasered by campus police

11/17/06


This is a very, very disturbing video. Unfortunately it is easy to jump to a judgement on this one. A student, who's name is ironically Mostafa Tabatabainejad, failed to show id at the campus library and was asked to leave. He refused. The id checker (who is probably another student or an old lady) called campus police and by the time they got there, he had his backpack on and was trying to leave the library. They officers tried to grab his arm (perhaps to escort him out?) at which he yelled, rather girlishly, "GET OFF OF ME!" (I say girlishly because they didn't really do anything to him so far). At that point they tasered him. Personally I think that taser was WAY out of line. But then they tried to get him to stand up and walk out and he refused. So they tasered him again and again until finally he walks out with them. All during this, students are yelling at the cops who were probably scared there would be some sort of riot (unfounded fear...college students of today are pussies compared to the college students of the 60s).

Well, UCLA students are going ape-shit about this. But lets balance the equation a bit.

Bad Student:
He didn't have ID.
He refused to leave at first.
He refused to stand up and walk out.

Bad Cops:
They stopped him from leaving.
They tasered him at the first sign of trouble.
They threatened people asking for their names with tasering.

Bad Crowd:
Asking the cops for their names while they are trying to deal with a situtation (asking a cop for his name while he is tasering someone? shut the fuck up and ask after the situation is dealt with)

That makes it even, right? Here is a link to the UCLA student paper. Here is a link to the local news station's coverage which, I think does a better job.

Bank of America falsely arrests customer...loses $50,000,000

11/16/06
How often will YOUR bank arrest you?

Boingboing has been covering this story for quite a while. Here is a quick summary:

- Bank of America Customer receives a suspicious check and asks a teller to investigate it.
- Teller shows check to manager who calls the cops.
- Customer is arrested and spends $14,000 in his defense.
- BoA decides not to reimburse him
- Customer tells the world and lots of people pull their money out of BoA
- Estimated lost - $50,000,000 ($70,000 just from BoingBoing readers alone - as of this writing)

Paul assures me that Citizen's Bank would NEVER be so careless with its customer service.

If you aren't voting today, you might as well be a fucking terrorist bent on the destruction of America. Go exercise your right to vote(in electronic voting machines that can be hacked with any smart card).

BTW - Here is an interesting website that analyzes the State of the Union addresses of all presidents since John Adams. Just move the slider above the word bank to view older presidents analysis. What's neat is that it increases the font size of words in proportion to the number of times they were repeated.

Example: One of FDR's big words was "unemployment"
