The Panic Button, Sunday, April 24, 2016

The whole point of the panic button is the comfort of knowing it is there and

that you know you could have pressed it but did not.

Keeping People Stupid:2/11/16

Keeping People Stupid, Thursday, Februay 11th, 2016

Where to begin?… Ok, how about the date, with the year in 2 digits, e.g, 2/11/16?

Who told us we had to use the 4 digits- the same people behind the requirement to add the area code to each local call?

No.  But essentially the same.

Everyone tweeting and facebooking and buying new cell phones? Even if the old phones work fine and you are behind in your text messages and emails?


How about you; have you seen anything?

Is the heart considered one of the “private parts”?


Facebook is still just for Idiots

Facebook is for Idiots, Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Part 1

Just for the record, OMG, wtf, get a life, really.

It’s 2016 people!  Why not just post your credit card and bank account and insurance information and click “autobuy”.

Websites are really inexpensive now.  Get one.

And, while on the subject of “there is no free _____”,

dump the gmail/hotmail/msn/yahoo email AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

Oh, wait… are you the people worried about “The Government” spying on you but in Google you trust?


omg, really

and I really debated about capitalizing the word Idiots

Part 2

Someone posted an insulting comment on Christmas Eve to the effect that I needed help decorating my tree.  It was a wise crack / prank, but to facebook users IT MUST BE TRUE!

Yes, weirdos showed up at my door, interrupting the festive occasion with puzzling comments / questions until I heard the word “facebook”.

I found it (the “post” on the facebookpage today, and there is no way to see who posted it or to comment on it without JOINING facebook, because that’s what facebook is.

I’m not going to be a prisoner of this company. I’m not interested.

Are you?

Part 3

Commercializing technology that was free (i.e. “Finger” in unix) is bad enough.  Complete lack of regulation is awful.

Big Brother  –  Big Brother

The old ones were good enough.

I guess we have to make do with that.



Oh no, not me, I never lost control

It’s only juke box music, right?
