If you thought you were fucked for buying Windows 8, you don’t know half of it…

Word has it that Windows XP, Vista, and 7 might be allowed to upgrade free of charge to Windows 9 in order to boost adoption of the new operating system and thus convince more users to upgrade. This would clearly help not only Microsoft, but also the PC industry, which is still struggling to boost sales despite the release of the Windows 8 modern operating system.

People who upgraded to windows 8 have been punished enough. Poor bastards.

‘Do not drink, do not boil’ water advisory issued for issued for Toledo

Posted on August 2nd, 2014 at 23:19 by John Sinteur in category: News

[Quote]:

The City of Toledo issued an urgent notice to residents of Toledo and Lucas County who receive water from the city of Toledo.

Customers are being asked to avoid drinking or boiling water.

Chemists testing water at Toledo’s Collins Park Water Treatment Plant had two sample readings for microcystin.

The health department says it is critical that residents know the following:

1. It is safe for healthy adults to bathe, wash their hands, and shower. While bathing, children should be under the supervision of an adult to prevent accidental drinking of the water.

2. Do not drink tap water until the all clear is given, this also includes pets.

3. Do not use tap water to cook until the all clear is given.

4. Do not boil tap water.

5. It is ok to use and flush your toilet.

Oregon is a ten minute drive away, with their own water supply. And can you guess what the super market shelves for water look like right now?

  1. Oh, the old blonde joke! Now you’ve done it:

    How do you drown a blonde?
    Put a mirror at the bottom of your pool.

    (I claim exemption from anti-minority hate legislation, because I are one.)

  2. What do you call it when a blonde dyes her hair brunette? Artificial intelligence.

  3. Can I just substitute “Congress” for “blonds” and still use the old jokes?

CIA director John Brennan lied to you and to the Senate. Fire him | Trevor Timm | Comment is free | theguardian.com

As reports emerged Thursday that an internal investigation by the Central Intelligence Agency’s inspector general found that the CIA “improperly” spied on US Senate staffers when researching the CIA’s dark history of torture, it was hard to conclude anything but the obvious: John Brennan blatantly lied to the American public. Again.

“The facts will come out,” Brennan told NBC News in March after Senator Dianne Feinstein issued a blistering condemnation of the CIA on the Senate floor, accusing his agency of hacking into the computers used by her intelligence committee’s staffers. “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on [the committee] or the Senate,” he said.

After the CIA inspector general’s report completely contradicted Brennan’s statements, it now appears Brennan was forced to privately apologize to intelligence committee chairs in a “tense” meeting earlier this week.

It wasn’t a lie, it was an enhanced public speaking technique.

  1. As with Alexander’s lies, as long as they’re lies that your boss approves of, you get to stay. Heckuvajob, Brennie!

The oceans are in trouble, and while marine biologists and conservationists and (God help us) politicians are the main advocates for the health of our planet, photographers can also play a role.

One photographer doing his part to help ensure future generations enjoy pristine oceans is Richard Salas, a talented underwater photographer with a decade of underwater photo experience who is currently crowdfunding the last of a trilogy of underwater photobooks that are helping both fund and inspire change.

A bribery trial against Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone that has been threatening his hold over the motor sport may end early with a settlement, a Munich court spokeswoman said on Friday, after Ecclestone’s lawyers held talks with prosecutors.

Munich newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung will report in its Saturday edition that the billionaire Ecclestone personally had negotiated a $100 million settlement with the state prosecutor on Friday.

Funny how you can bribe your way out of a prosecution for bribery.

‘Palestinian Genocide is Permissible’ Claims Israeli Writer

Posted on August 2nd, 2014 at 0:03 by John Sinteur in category: batshitinsane, Foyer of Ennui (just short of the Hall of Shame)

[Quote]:

A Jewish blogger has advocated genocide as a “permissible” way to achieve the goal of a sustainable peace in Israel.

Yochanan Gordon, who is from New York, posted on the Times of Israel an op-ed entitled “When Genocide is Permissible” in which he argues that the only way to deal with Hamas is using an extreme measure of punishment.

“We have already established that it is the responsibility of every government to ensure the safety and security of its people,” he wrote. “If political leaders and military experts determine that the only way to achieve its goal of sustaining quiet is through genocide is it then permissible to achieve those responsible goals?”

“He who forgets the past is doomed to repeat it.”

  1. Someone is figuring out an intellectual framework for this? Paint the politicians into a corner with blood? Not going to end well.

  2. Damn, they must have gotten Hitler’s play book.

  3. I read the post- others have saved the blog for posterity – and I’m guessing logic is not Yochanan Gordon’s strongest suit.
