A story with a happy ending.

Wednesday, February 25th, 2004

July, 2k2, Swiss air traffic controller gives bad instructions to a Russian jet. Guidance system says up, ATC guy, apparently having a brainfart, says down. Oops, a DHL jet. Boom. Gore.

Onboard the Russian rustbucket: 45 prize Russian kids. These kids are the best the snowy shithole has to offer. Seriously, hope for the future, they won all kinds of prizes: best farmer, best furry hat, most original snowplow. Head of the Russian smart kids politsburo sends them to Spain to experience the sun for the first time plus anal sex with swarthies, drugs on the Ibizan sand and arroz con pollo.

Fast forward. 2004. Swiss air traffic controller sits around in his log house, freezing his norns off, eating a …

Being comforted by the weirdest things

Wednesday, February 25th, 2004

It scares me that some people find some measure of comfort in this site. It’s weird to go from causing trouble to being a place for people to vent in a therapeutic way.

Other facts that I was not alerted to

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

Did you know that Fraq elbowed a supermodel in the face while playing basketball with her a few months ago? She ran away bleeding from the mouth. HAHA. Deserved it of course.

Better: Telling the story while standing five feet from her and her aloof, arrogant, stick-thin friends.

DJ Touche essential mix

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

The badly named DJ Touche produced an excellent essential mix a few weeks ago. It’s totally diverse, random, and mixed perfectly. If I upload it, will anyone actually listen? It’s 140MB.

Technology irritation

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

I find not being on IM or answering my phone to be very comforting. Like I’m meditating. Tired of being pinged by randoms when I’m trying to get my pruno on.

Calendar update

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

Monday is the new Tuesday.

Backdoor Bamby is a fucking gem and why didn’t anyone tell me?

NBA players and models at Sports Cafe. That was weird. I didn’t have my digital camera of course so you’ll just have to make me sign an affidavit.

Shitty stories

Saturday, February 21st, 2004

Dan from SimpleBits has a discussion going on about computer buyer’s remorse and this one story really stuck out:

my buddy josh kept waiting and reading about how much cheaper his new laptop would be if he waited one more month when the new ones come out. the next month he would wait because the new ones would be old in a month and so he would get his cheaper. perfect plan? yeah i guess.

finally after 6 months of this madness *and me telling him to get the f%*&^* computer already* he gave in and bought a laptop which by the way was crap. anyway, they told him the laptop would get there …
