|03:01 pm - Work? What is this work thing of which you speak?|
Some moron with a Ferrari Enzo went racing on PCH in Malibu, crashes into a power pole, and shears it in half. There's three things that annoy me about this story:
1) The moron did it while drunk.
2) The other guy was racing a Mercedes, so it couldn't have been much of a challenge.
3) Why don't I have a car like that? I could actually drive it worth a damn!
The almost certainly ignorant authorities think he might've been going as high as 100 mph. I guarantee you it was faster than that. I'm betting at least 150 to do that sort of damage.
Microsoft crash on Times Square -- Say kalisphoenix -- I remember you posting one of these before, albeit a blue screen. Was that Times Square as well?
Site of "broken" signs -- This kinda reminds me of Not Fooling Anybody website of silly/bad remodels.

everyone has a right to be weird - even buildings
I couldn't possibly agree more -- especially with those results!
In fact, if there is ever oppression against buildings of abnormal or unusual construction before my eyes, I shall make it my charge to defend and restore the reputations of those buildings so poorly treated by mundane standards.

Yep. Daresay the bluescreen was more amusing :-)
I'm not entirely inclined to disagree, though one must admit there's some humor to a commercial stopping and having that exception message appear.
It makes one wonder how long it took them to notice and how much it cost them to have it advertising for Linux, FreeBSD, OS X, &c.

So, you're in a high speed race, you total your car, but survive. By the damage you were obviously going over 100mph. So, what do you do?? Move over to the passenger's seat, and tell people the "driver" ran in to the hills! Ofcourse! "No officer, I was NOT racing this vehicle. That was somebody ELSE!" heehee
Yeah, that was the weird part of the article -- It seemed pretty clear to me that the driver was right there, but the article goes on with some weird presumption of innocence thing.
"And I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for that darn airbag..."

Actually, I'm assuming that the police found some compelling evidence for there having been somebody else in the driver's seat. Like blood that didn't match the guy, or something like that. Maybe I put too much confidence in the LAPD...
