Holy Hell the Lights Are Still On

It's been 4 years and this thing is this active. Well, by tonight, we'll see if there will be a need to resurrect the blog.

Techie Tuesday: Can't Tase Me Bro

Groundbreaking technology as reported by Gizmodo, the Thor Shield:
The "Thor Shield" was designed for police officers but sure to be more popular amongst protesters and other people who piss off police officers. It uses a layer of foil in the vest to draw the current of the taser, keeping your body nice and jolt-free.

Or as it says at it's own site:

Thor Shield (TS) is a protective fabric lining that provides protection from non-lethal energy weapons such as TASER(TM)*, Stun Guns and animal control devices such as cattle prods. The product has been tested with stun products up to 900,000 volts.

I wrote about Taser company over 4 years ago. They are still using the same Matrix, "be agent Smith" animation. Either they are cheap in the online marketing, or they still think that message still resonates.

Exhaling into Palin

Gotta love the American knack for making a buck. As Topco Sales says in their press release:
The sexy 'This is Not Sarah Palin Inflatable Love Doll' won't debate you—and that's a good thing. Her wide-open mouth doesn't spew political bipartisanism because she's just waiting for you to 'drill baby, drill.' Two other openings offer alternate ways to lay a pipeline in this Alaskan MILF.

Reminds of the old song by the Police, Be My Girl

And so I sit her in the corner
And sometimes stroke her hair
And when Im feeling naughty
I blow her up with air

Shes cuddly and shes bouncy,
Shes like a rubber ball,
I bounce her in the kitchen
And I bounce her in the hall

Dastardly Joe Cassano - Culprit

Tonight Anderson Cooper led with the story that Joseph Cassano is the face responsible behind the failure of AIG.

Countdown until we find out that Cassano contributed to Obama's campaign: 3...2...1...

At first blush, he left the company a while ago. However he could not have operated in a vacuum to drive the company to ruin. Without the deregulation, repeal of the Glass-Steagull Act, AIG could never have over extended themselves to the point of ruin.

He is most likely another asshole who gamed the system, but who the hell wrote the rules of the game? Does Phil Graham, the GOP, John McCain and all those other champions of reduce-taxes-free-market-deregulation ring a bell?

That said, I think Obama's campaign should forward a check equal to that of this asshole's campaign donation to the US treasury.

Just sayin'...

Winkers for Wankers

That's right, Winkers for Wankers.

Sad, but true...

Dow Goes South

Remember 10 years ago when this was a concern that rivaled the Y2K glitch:

Programmers in the stock and securities industries, never anticipating the meteoric rise of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, have written some applications that support only four digits, experts said. If the Dow hits 10,000, and it was hovering at around 9,200 last week, certain automated trading operations might not work properly, they said.

"Trading organizations face massive exposure if the [Dow] passes 10,000 and their systems interpret it as 1,000 or 0,000," said analyst Andy Kyte in a Gartner Group report. "Computer-based trading systems could interpret the '10,000' event as a catastrophic crash."

Thank god we have nothing to worry about...
