Everything And All

The U.S. Air Force has a fleet of infected drones, the computer virus will track every keystroke the pilot makes as it flies sensitive missions over war zones.  They keep wiping it off, and it keeps reappearing, and is proving to be a pretty nasty computer bug.  Now here is the rub.  The Air Force says that they are not sure whether the virus was introduced intentionally or accidentally.

Uh … how was that.  Did I read that right?

The Westboro Baptist Church is not having a good week after they made the statement that Steve Jobs was going to hell.  They put out the message or tweet “via Twitter for iPhone” and then later when called on it (the use of the iPhone) the church explained that “God created the iPhone” not Steve Jobs.  Here is another one while we are at it.  A Dallas Texas Baptist preacher sued the city for damage done to his foreign car that was damaged when a light pole fell on it while legally parked in that city.  The preacher filed his claim with the city council for some $1,800 in damages which was promptly declined.  Why?

The council ruled that “it was an act of God” and therefore the city was not responsible.

Bad day for a Super Hero in Seattle.  
An amateur superhero was arrested for assault after he allegedly pepper-sprayed a group of people outside a nightclub.  The self styled vigilante who goes by the name “Phoenix Jones” claims he was breaking up a fight, but Seattle police say he started the scuffle.

Phoenix Jones is one of many dues paying members of the Rain City Superhero Movement who patrol the streets of the city like comic book characters.  Police have asked the crusaders to dial 911 when they run across something illegal or unusual.  Evidently he did not receive the memo?  So, it appears that it is alright to dress up in a goofy costume and parade around one of the largest cities in the Northwest, it is the pepper-spraying of the citizens that is frowned upon.

You ever wonder which Superhero you might be?  You can take the test here.  Which Superhero am I?

Here is something else that is bugging me.  Why is it when two superhero’s are in a fight on the big screen, why is it that both of them are good fighters?  It always turns out that both of them are really good at that (fighting).  Just once, wouldn’t you like to see a fight between two superhero’s where one of them gets the complete crap kicked out of him in about eight seconds?  Especially the #1 hero, that would be cool.

From the Maybe-The-Batteries-Are-Dead Department:

When his .38 revolver failed to fire during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot did something which can only inspire wonder: He peered down the barrel and pulled the trigger again.  That time, the gun worked.

So stupid, it’s brilliant:

After stopping for drinks at a bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the twenty mental patients he was transporting had escaped.  Not wanting to admit incompetence, the driver went on to the nearest crowded bus stop and offered a free ride to everyone waiting there.  He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff there that the “patients” were very excitable, and prone to bizarre fantasies.

The deception was not discovered for three days.

Remember this the next time you find yourself sitting on the bench, leaning forward and looking down the road for old #13 to come pick you up and cart you downtown.
