On a nice note USA Today had this:

10 great places to study skylines of the world

Right at the top:

Duquesne Incline
One of the city's more interesting architectural elements is the plethora of bridges, which span the city's three rivers: the Allegheny and the Monongahela rivers, which meet to form the Ohio River. "They're not your usual flat-deck bridges, but these beautiful older bridges that have been rebuilt," Blakeway says. "There's a lot of ironwork to them." Take the Duquesne Incline up Mount Washington for a sweeping view of the city, rivers and bridges, he says. 412-381-1665;

Stupid People and Angry Angie

Today is a ranting kind of day.
So my portion of Stupid comes from the USAToday instead of MSNBC today. They are two stories I just have to voice my opinion on. But I will title the links to the story myself. I think its funnier. And its my blog

First up: Who REALLY gives a Shit what Michelle Obama is wearing as long as she doesn't look like a whore?

And I am not kidding. The economy is going to shit, unemployment is thru the roof, the government is bailing everyone out and there is really an article critiquing her DRESS.

Apparently, Obama's decision to go sleeveless again is stirring up a debate. The tribute to Wonder was the second time in as many days that the first lady bared her arms: She wore a plum Narciso Rodriguez dress when her husband addressed Congress on Tuesday night. She ap

pears on the latest issue of People magazine in a sleeveless magenta Tracy Reese frock and also went sans sleeves on her recent Vogue cover. But should people be up in arms about Obama baring hers?
The answer to the question is: NO! Jez. SHUT UP. Of all the damn things to be worried about. And she looks FINE. Its not like we see her privates like Britney or Lindsey. So shut up. Period.

Hello? I'm trying to be the stupidest mother alive besides "Miss 14 kids, no man, no job and no house."

This story speaks for itself. This woman is a MORON.

Police in Ohio say a woman(39-year-old Genine Compton) has been charged with child endangering after another motorist reported she was both breast-feeding a youngster and talking on a phone while driving.
Her defense:
He said the woman told officers she was breast-feeding and wouldn't let her child go hungry.
HELLO? PULL OVER you f*&%ing dumb ass. The car is allowed to STOP. You can't breast and drive AND talk on a cell phone!!! Give me that kid damn it. Your not intelligent enough to breathe let alone be a parent. Take her phone, take her car and take her kid. Please. I think my brain is going to explode.

I am sad to say the Police had to clarify WHY she was charged:

Burke said the legal concern is that Compton had a child in her lap while driving, not that she was breast-feeding in public. He said the child was under 2 years old. Police say the woman faces up to 180 days in jail and a $1,800 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor.
This reason should be plainly obvious to ANYONE with common sense.

Alas. I prove time and time again. We are a society of Morons.

Are you serious?

I just had to post about this. The article is from the USAToday...

Ryanair: You may soon have to 'pay to pee'

(European airline discount giant)Ryanair could begin charging passengers to use the toilet. That's direct from the mouth of Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary, who made the comments this morning to BBC television. "One thing we have looked at in the past and are looking at again is the possibility of maybe putting a coin slot on the toilet door so that people might actually have to spend a pound (about $1.43) to spend a penny in future," O'Leary told the BBC...

First off... WHAT!? $2.00 to use the bathroom? That is ridiculous. SouthWest doesn't do that shit and they make a profit here in the US. Then I looked further and apparently this airline is known for their crazy bullshit. Here are some other things I found in the USAToday about them:

Already known for bare-bones, no-frills service, European discount giant Ryanair is doing away with another service that has been synonymous with air travel. The airline hopes to eliminate all of its check-in counters by the end of the year
The airline already has recently increased fees for customers who choose to check their bags at the airport instead of online.
Ryanair customers "will now have to pay £28.50 (about $41) to take their duty-free shopping on the plane. The budget airline has introduced new on-the-spot charges which must be paid at the boarding gate if holidaymakers can't fit their shopping into their single bag of hand luggage.
Any additional bags, for example a bag of newspapers and snacks for the flight, could incur another fee of £28.50 (about $41)each way.
On another front, Ryanair last week became the first European airline to launch in-flight cell phone service . That service will cost £1.50 to £3 per minute (one pound is currently worth about $1.43), 40 pence per text sent (incoming ones are free) and £1 to £2 for limited e-mails use.
Oh the irony of being a LOW Fare carrier that offers that type of service. But thats not all. I discovered more. I think the CEO is a complete nut job now. I know he myst save a fortune in advertising since he likes to dress up so damn much:

Michael O'Leary's publicity campaigns (a photo gallery of this goofball)

and that led me to this:

Ryanair calls blogger lunatic

A blogger who claimed to have found a flaw in the Ryanair website allowing people to book free flights has been attacked as a "lunatic" and an "idiot" by the airline.

"Ryanair can confirm that a Ryanair staff member did engage in a blog discussion. It is Ryanair policy not to waste time and energy in corresponding with idiot bloggers and Ryanair can confirm that it won't be happening again," it told The Times.

"Lunatic bloggers can have the blog sphere all to themselves as our people are far too busy driving down the cost of air travel".

I have a feeling... Mr Dress-up was probably the "Ryanair staff member" in question here. Oh and it gets better, I promise. I am pretty sure this statement would never fly in the US:

When pressed by disgruntled Ryanair passengers for a refund, O'Leary's standard response is unconventional: "What part of No Refund do you not understand? You are not getting a refund, so f**k off."
And more from this article "How OLeary flies high on his unique form of alchemy":
O'Leary's genius is simplicity: strip out all possible costs, as long as they are not safety-related. Charge the lowest price per seat and then screw as much as you can out of customers for everything else. Be shameless. He has pursued cost-elimination with evangelical zeal: free newspapers, complimentary snacks, sick bags and customer-service departments are the devil's work, to be exorcised without mercy. Passengers are charged extra for luggage, for wheelchairs, even for checking in. If the plane is late, don't tell O'Leary: he's not listening. It's the brutalist school of PR
And the sad pathetic truth to this is: ( I personally, would never fly this airline no matter how cheap the base cost is)

As long as the airline's cost base remained significantly lower than all rivals', that simple formula would always be a winning one.

In short, punters might grumble and groan about lost bags and cancelled flights, but when return tickets cost less than a beer in the airport bar they would keep choosing Ryanair.
All I have to say is: Dumb asses. You can't bitch if you chose the shitty service cause we all know you pretty much get what you pay for. If you pay Dollar store prices for a flight, you better expect Dollar store service and don't bitch when that is what you get.

Stupid Hall of Fame

I guess I am in a ranting kind of mood today sine this is my 3rd post in 3 hours. As always, Thanks MSNBC.

My nomination for dumbest thieves ever:
Police: $1,000 bill foils teen safe-robbers

...they drove a stolen van to Birmingham, Alabama, where an 18-year-old tried to exchange the $1,000 bill Thursday at a Service First Bank branch. The U.S. Treasury stopped printing $1,000 bills in 1945, so the bank called police. Officers arrested the teen and two 15-year-old companions.
Need I say more?

My nomination for most uptight parents on the planet:

One-armed TV host scares kids, parents say

Burnell, who has a 4-month-old daughter, seems unfazed by the controversy. “Children come up to me in the street every day and say 'What's that?' I wouldn't say they're frightened but certainly they're inquisitive,” she told BBC magazine. "I would always take the time to explain to a child. All they want is an explanation. They want to know 'What's that?' and 'What's happened?' and 'Why are you different?' And then they will move on."
Sir Bert Massie of Great Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission told the BBC. "I think what's happening is a number of adults do have prejudices, do have very negative views about disabled people, and instead of admitting the views are their own, they're projecting them on to their children and saying the children are doing this,” he is quoted as saying.
I highly doubt that this lady is giving kids nightmares. Especially since the complaints were full of "might" and "maybe" language. Oh get over your self England. You people have Naked News, 14 year old fathers and shit. So, shut up.

My nomination for best way to give the middle finger to a thief:

Wash. burglary victim drives off in thieves' van

Patrick Rosario was in the basement of his Bellevue home on Tuesday when he heard the burglars upstairs.He saw a white van sitting in front of his house with the motor running and the keys in the ignition, and he got in and drove it to a friend's house.

Police say the burglars left the televisions, a laptop computer and a jewelry box by the door and took off on foot.

HA!HA! Maybe next time they will make sure the house is actually EMPTY. Also, leaving the van running? If that doesn't say dumb ass thief, I don't know what does. Running vehicles DRAW ATTENTION. Idiots.

And to finish this post:
The Winner for Most Inept Thief:
Car thief caught trapped in target vehicle

The man, while breaking into the car, had locked himself in the car and couldn't get out," South Australian police said, adding a second thief was found hiding in nearby bushes.
Are you f*&%ing kidding? In the car? What I want to know is: HOW do you lock yourself IN the car? What kind of car is this? Is it KITT? Where can I get one that will lock thieves in for me? That is *amazing* He LOCKED himself IN the car. The basic theory is that the car can be UNlocked from the INSIDE. At least that is how every car I have EVER been in works. If there is a car out there that locks you IN-- I expect someone to tell me what it is ,cause that damn article doesn't say what kid of car it is. I want a car that can lock the thief in damn it.

This Bitch and her 14 kids

Oh you just knew this would bring mt out of my silence right? Knew it, didn't you? My favorite Place: MSNBC had this article from yesterday. But I only saw it today.

Suleman and mom bicker over babies’ care

Her own father questions her sanity. Her mother thinks she has no grasp of reality. Her home is besieged day and night by an army of paparazzi. The home in which she lives is in the process of foreclosure. And Nadya Suleman, California’s notorious “Octomom,” navigates calmly through life, apparently uncomprehending of the chaos around her and the enormous difficulty of raising 14 kids.

What is important here is this:

Help has been offered. Linda West Conforti, a registered nurse who founded Angels in Waiting, a group offering to help care for the Suleman children, appeared on TODAY to repeat an offer of a house for Suleman and her 14 children and around-the-clock professional care worth $130,000 a month. Conforti and her attorney, Gloria Allred, told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira that Suleman has not responded to the offer.
She is the dumbest woman on the planet to not accept this offer. Not with a 3 bedroom house in foreclosure, 14 kids, no money, no man, and no job. I already think she is out of her f*&%ing mind for having all those kids.


After plowing thru 5 Stephenie Meyers novels (4 of them were the Twlight series) in the last 2 months... I need a break. I have been neglecting the blog because the last 2 books I read were borrowed and I was under a deadline to read them. So, on to random shit.

Julia has, by some minor miracle started sleeping thru the night again. For a while she was waking at 2-3am and coming down into our room. Sometimes crying, sometimes not. There is no room for a 3rd person in my bed. So, I was making her sleep on the sofa when she came down. I don't know if she decided that her bed was more comfortable or if the routine finally eased her fear that we had not run away... It doesn't matter. I just know that its nice not to tiptoe around the house when I am trying to get ready for work. And I am not so sleep deprived as I was.

I am pleased that the weather has warmed up. Even if it is for a few days. I really am sick to death of 14 degrees.

I am on Twitter now. See the feed on the left over there? Unlike some of the people I follow, I usually only update twitter once or twice a day. I just don't have time for more than that right now. So, don't be disappointed. K?

I have accepted that the Pens are not going to make the playoffs or will be eliminated in the first round. Our defense is just horridand our offense is not much better despite the wins. The players we lost could not be matched by the players we signed. It happens.

I Hate Snow. I Hate Winter.

That's right. I live in Pittsburgh and I hate snow. It doesn't start out that way. But it never fails, by February I hate the white shit. This year winter has been really cold an snow and ice have caused me to fall several times. I know, I know your thinking- Angie's middle name is klutz. However, if I fall of my own klutzy-ness... that is my fault. Slipping and falling hard on ice and having to spend the while day wondering if my legs are gonna give out- NOT FUN.

I hate people who are too fucking lazy to shovel their sidewalk, forcing me to risk my life walking to the f&%$ing bus stop by walking in the street or on their uncleared sidewalk. I shoveled MY walk 9 months pregnant. I shoveled my walk before I was even cleared to drive AFTER I had Julia. Rude lazy mother f&%$ers -- get out there and shovel. Bitches.

I am sick and tired of needing scarf, gloves, ear warmer, hood, 2 pair of shoes and a bulky ass coat just to leave the house. SICK of it. You will NEVER EVER hear me say I wish it was winter in the middle of summer. Never. I dont care if it's 90. I refuse to wish for cold.

I hate the static charge I have by the time I get to work. My clothes stick to me and I keep getting shocked. I have to keep a can of static guard in my damn drawer at work.

There is snow outside now and I am so pissed. I should get up early to shovel the walk before I leave for work so that I don't fall. Of course, this is moot because nobody will have shoveled theirs.
Here's hoping I make it to work with out killing myself.

House? Who Needs a House? I got 14 kids

The new stuff turning up in this story never ceases to amaze me. I was NOT surprised to read this story at my favorite place for all things crazy... MSNBC:

Home of octuplets' grandmother in default

Because in my last post about them, it was revealed that grandma is going broke taking care of her litter of grandkids... That was BEFORE her daughter had 8 more.

The default notice shows Angela Suleman is $23,225 behind in her mortgage payments and that the house could be sold at auction beginning May 5.
That didn't JUST happen. She has probably skipped payments for months because she is footing the bill for her daughter's mental disorder. Fox news states in their story that the phone is disconnected too. Probably for good reason. People are appalled. Soon they could be homeless on top of so broke its not funny and yet "mommy of the year" had to have more while grandma spent every penny she had.

Burgh Baby mentioned to me that Miss 14 kids, no man, no job and no house, is also vowing not to date until ALL the kids were grown up because she doesn't want to devote 1 minute to anything but her kids. Which is hilarious, cause she wants to go back to school. And then work. None of which I think will happen since she spent her student loan money on the kids she couldn't afford to have in the first place! I tried to find an article I could link too... but no luck. You will just have to believe Burgh Baby and I when we say it's true.

And I can't forget to mention this:

Octuplet mom got more than $165K in disability

The single mother gave birth to most of her six other children during the time she was on disability.

While she was getting the $165,000 for a back injury that she said was enough to keep her from working-- She was off having 6 kids in 6 years. Kids are WORK. She could produce a litter of chidren and be pregnant most of her time off but couldn't get a f&%$ing job?

I swear, my brain wants to explode when I try to wrap my mind around this insanity. That's what this is. INSANITY.

You have 1 new text message

Hmmm... I saw this today in the PG:

Planning a family? Text message service tells you when the time is right

And I thought to myself. If you need a text message to tell you to have sex... Your too f&%$ing busy to have kids.

When Tonya Whitfield's cell phone buzzes with a text message, it could be a few words from a friend, a note from work -- or a reminder that it's time to grab her husband.
That's a message from the folks at Give the Web site the details of your menstrual cycle and it will send you messages advising when it's, well, time.
The free service is called, appropriately, "Booty Caller." Its motto: "We tell you when, you decide where."

First... I am not putting that shit on a website. Second... Its easy to get pregnant if you want to. The first way is to just do it every day. :-) Oh that's right. I am the rare one of female species that is willing to DO IT every day. Ha! And just ask Miss 14 kids, no man, no job, no house. She has a damn litter of kids now. She knows how to pop out kids real good.

At 32, Mrs. need a text to remember to try to have kids, should have a fairly good idea of when a good time to get laid is by now.

In many ways, Booty Caller is an extension of natural family planning: charting
one's cycles to avoid or seek pregnancy.
So far, no user has informed the Web site that a Booty Caller baby is en route, but Ms. Murray is hopeful.

So... uh... It hasn't actually worked for ANYONE yet???

Married to husband Terrance for almost two years, Ms. Whitfield has miscarried
three times. She decided to try Booty Caller last month. She was excited by the

I really have to point out that this service will NOT prevent a miscarriage. I am sad that she has had them, and I understand there are people who need help getting pregnant. I am not insensitive to those who really do need help. But, you have to admit a text message reminder to get laid just seems absurd or at least hilarious. And I text alot. Maybe some of the grownups can take a que from the kids... Naked pics thru text messages. Text some boobs! Your over 18 so its legal! That should get you laid.

An expectant father in New York developed the Kickbee, a stretchable band with
embedded sensors that sends a message via the social networking site Twitter
when his unborn child kicks his wife -- essentially, chatting from the womb

OK... now that is insane.

Here hon, I know your carrying a baby and you are getting your insides stomped on, have to pee 300 times a day, cant walk right, cant sleep right, crave or severely hate certain foods, gained weight and need maternity clothes, but could you just wear this stretchy band so the baby can f&%$ing Twitter???

14 and counting... WTF

Just when I think that moron can't piss me off more... and I am referring to Miss 14 children, no man, no job an no house... I see another f*&%ing story about her!
This is in the USA Today

Octuplets' grandmother conciliatory in interview

Yes, she is sorry. I get it, babies are adorable. Here is what pisses me off:

Nadya Suleman's six older children have been living in Angela Suleman's three-bedroom home.

Angela Suleman said she won't have enough space for the octuplets, who were born last month, when they are released from the hospital, and that she will have to help her daughter move into another home.

She said she already spends her entire retirement income caring for the six grandchildren who live with her.

"My retirement check goes every month," she said. "It's just gone."

I am glad someone is caring for these kids. But for goodness sake. Why does grandma sacrificing her damn retirement money? Oh that's right cause mom can't GET A JOB because she is busy MAKING MORE BABIES. I think my head is going to explode. I can't stand it. 14 kids, no income and you HAD to have more. 6 wasn't enough?

"Sorry (kids 1-6) you were not enough to make mommy happy so, I needed some more. And grandma wasn't completely broke yet.... I am sorry you have wear name tags too... It's hard to remember the names of 14 children..."


Damn Penguins

Barely a month after I posted this:

Dumb Questions

I read this: Bylsma named coach as Pens fire Therrien

I am sad. I like Therrien and I dont think the coach was the problem. I think this a a player problem, a defense problem. Teams can have bad a bad year.... I think it was jumping the gun.

Stupid Hall of Fame: WTF Edition

So, I just couldn't resist posting these even if they have nothing to do with Pittsburgh or the US....

Man hoping to get fired allegedly trashes eatery
Police said the man told them he was trying to get fired and couldn't
collect unemployment if he simply quit

Hey Moron.... you can't get it for Employee Misconduct either. And vandalizing the place counts as misconduct you idiot.

UK: Birth of 13-year-old dad's child sparks outrage

Alfie Patten, who was only 12 when the baby was conceived with his girlfriend,
Chantelle Steadman, 15, was first pictured on the front of Friday's tabloid
Sun newspaper with his daughter, Maisie Roxanne, after her birth Monday.

Wait... did you say he was 12 and she is 15? WTF?

Tony Kerridge, of the sexual health specialist Marie Stopes International, told
PA that children needed better education.

Uh Tony.... They need PARENTAL SUPERVISION! Who the hell is in charge there? It sounds like that boy had too much time on his hands. At 12 years old where are his f*&%ing parents? Where did he find time to *score* with an older girl enough to knock her up?

London's The Times newspaper reported Saturday that in the past decade, more
than 40 other boys younger than 14 had fathered children

This is f*&%ing crazy! Younger than 14? Fully functionally that soon? damn. What pornos are they getting their hands over there to even know *how* and where, again, are the damn parents? I mean these kids (boys and girls) are getting naked somewhere right? At this rate I am gonna have to have the sex talk with Julia when she starts kindergarten in 3 years and have to put f*&%ing LoJack on her so she can't get naked with a boy until she is 18!!

See... I promised I would make fun of people... here it is. :-)


Man runs out of gas after robbing gas station

hahahahahahaha!!!!Dumbass! Anyway


From the file "You deserve to get caught you moron!!"

An Ohio teenager allegedly tried to pull off a sweet deal by ordering more than $37,000 of candy online and charging the bill to his former high school.

And of course... He had his house as his shipping address. dumbass

Things That Piss me off

Yes. I survived. A Miracle, I know. And to prove I am back... I am gonna bitch. And then make fun of some people. Good stuff. :-)

First up. UPMC. Greedy little Bastards that they are. They will pay a fortune to have offices at the top of USX and defile my building with their giant off center letters. But in the PG article today, they can't be bothered to take Military Insurance since its not profitable enough.

Woman fighting UPMC rejection of military health plan

She said she's been told UPMC doesn't accept Tricare, the military health plan, because of low reimbursement rates.

"...UPMC is the region's largest health-care provider, so its refusal to accept Tricare puts undue burden on military families."

Here is WHY this pisses me off soooooo much: I remember when UPMC started. They were all "We are about the patients and doctors. We aren't like Aetna and Highmark, we care about people and good health care. We aren't uncaring bureaucrats with red tape. " And its TOTAL Bullshit now. They are worse than the health insurance companies. Their insurance is crap. They treat their employees like shit. They ARE uncaring bureaucrats who only look at the bottom line. But they are everywhere cause deep pockets bought a lot of hospitals.

UPMC is more like the neighborhood SKANK. Nobody *likes* her. The only reason all the boys on the block slept with her was because nobody wanted to be the last virgin in highschool.

"I guess they don't think our soldiers and military families deserve the best in health care," she said."
And UPMC will yell all day long how they are the best.

Molly Tuttle, spokeswoman for Health Net Federal Services, which administers the Department of Defense's Tricare insurance program in the North region, also said it was "excellent news."(Frank Raczkiewicz, UPMC spokesman, said the health system now is considering joining the network.)

Ms. Tuttle said Health Net officials unsuccessfully contacted UPMC twice a year for the past five years to persuade it to join the network. While soldiers and their families can get treatment at any UPMC facility, there they would be assessed higher out-of-pocket expenses.

Someone should have told Ms. Tuttle to call the papers a long time ago.

And I haven't forgotten about Miss 14 children, no man, no job and no house.
And here is a smpling of why I am angry about people who procreate beyond their means and abilities to support their damn kids!

Taxpayers may be covering octuplet mom’s bills

... The hospital where the octuplets are expected to spend seven to 12 weeks has requested reimbursement from Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, for care of the premature babies, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The cost was estimated in another article to be close to $2 million. Also in this article:

Also, a Nadya Suleman Family Web Site has been set up to collect donations for the children. It features pictures of the mother and each octuplet and has instructions for making donations by check or credit card.
WHAT!!??? Are you serious? Why should I donate my hard earned money to pay for your 14 kids that you had on purpose through In-vitro?

In the NBC interview, Suleman said she will go back to California State University, Fullerton in the fall to complete her master’s degree in counseling, and will use student loans to support her children. She said she will rely on the school’s daycare center and volunteers.
Student loans are for SCHOOL. More taxpayer money going to her 14 kids. Does that mean that 14 kids from other students will be denied access to the daycare center because she filled it with her kids? How is she going to pay for school if she spends the money paying for the kids she cant afford? And how can she really emotionally bond and support all 14 kids by herself while going to school? And she wonders why people are having a problem with this.

So, I finally put these up... I have 3 today. That is why it is a Special Edition. :-)
And pretend you didn't notice the time I posted this.

I have a better suggestion. Put in a Doorbell. Maybe Opportunity is lazy, or you left the screen door locked. What about those of us who are not skilled enough to build a door? Can I go to Lowe's and buy one? :-)

Food? What kind of food? Cause if I am coming there on my lunch break, you better have some food cause I'll be hungry! Can we talk about cake? I love cake. Particularly... Spice cake with cream cheese icing. :-)

And I saved the Best for last: Submitted by Jamie-Lynn.

A WTF Kind of Day......

I woke up this morning and realized it was gonna be one of those days where I use the F-word frequently.

It was 2 degrees outside. WTF indeed. My legs were close to numb by the time I got to work and there were annoying little icicles on my eye lashes. I HATE 2 degrees. I hate anything under 35 degrees personally. Its 10 at the time I write this. 10!!! Damn it.

My contact hurts my eye today. Yes, I sleep in them all the time. Yes, I do almost everything they tell you NOT to do with contacts. I am probably legally blind with out them and I HATE HATE glasses for many reasons that I won't go into here. So I am sitting here, with 1 contact in and 1 in the spare lens case, soaking, with the hopes I will be able to put it in later without feeling the needles of death in my eyeball. So, don't laugh if you walk by my desk and I have 1 eye covered with my hand.

And the WTF continues in the news:

Woman jailed over $30,000 parking fine

An Austrian woman has begun a 500-day jail sentence for ignoring parking tickets and failing to pay a cumulative fine of around 24,000 euros ($30,860), police said Tuesday
They said the 38-year-old civil servant from the southern city of Graz was jailed after ignoring 700 attempts by local authorities to notify her of the fines over a 2-year period.
Um. Why stop at 700? reminders? Let's go for 1000, maybe then she will pay up. Again- After 50 reminders they should have realized that it was a waste of time and money. Bad on them for repeating the same action 700 times and expecting her to pay up (that is the definition of insanity) and bad on her for not paying her parking tickets.

771st Time Not Charm For Driver's Exam

A woman in South Korea who has taken the written exam required for a driver's license nearly every day since 2005 has failed again -- but is hoping attempt No. 772 will be the charm.
WTF? 700 times? Really?! At some point shouldn't she have the damn test memorized by now?? If after 10 times, you can't get it right- the answer is you don't get your license back. NO. Step away from the car and find a bus to ride.
You are NOT smart enough to drive.
This woman is the kind that give women drivers a bad reputation. She is never gonna get it right if it hasn't happened yet. moron.
I can't believe that they are still letting her take the test over and over.

Then I visited my Favorite. News. Site. Ever. MSNBC.
This is the WTF of The Day and it is only lunch time!

Ex-husband told to pay slain woman's rent

Broadcrest Foothill Apartment Homes claims Alicia Ortiz broke her lease and gave "insufficient notice to vacate."

Ortiz and her 17-year-old son were killed by her sister's disgruntled ex-husband.

Are you F*&%ing Serious? "Sorry. Next Time I plan to be murdered, I'll make sure to notify my leasing office 90 days in advance." That is some bullshit right there, and the leasing office should be ashamed of itself. The best part of this is that they are going after the EX. That's like a calling an old boyfriend. He was not her CURRENT Husband.

The ex-husband of one of the nine people killed at a Christmas Eve party has been asked by a landlord to pay the dead woman's rent. The landlord of her Upland apartment informed her former husband, Carlos Ortiz, that he owes $2,821 in rent and penalties.
Look. I am *sure* that if Alicia Ortiz knew how inconvenient it would be for her landlord, She would have skipped the party where she was gonna get killed. Come on! Some one needs to put the smackdown on Broadcrest Foothill Apartment Homes. Its not like she moved out. She DIED.

What assholes.

Stories of the day & other stuff

Coming soon, there will be a new "Love this Church" I have a reader submission and a few pics of my own to post. With blogger mobile still not working for T-mobile... It's a pain in the ass. But I will, I promise. :-)

Here is my WTF Stories of the day:

(From USA Today) Q&A: Octuplet birth raises questions

Here is the important part:

The Associated Press has reported that the mother is a single 33-year-old named Nadya Suleman who already had six children at home, and that all 14 of her children were conceived via in vitro fertilization, or IVF. How she could afford expensive IVF, and why a doctor would transfer enough embryos to result in octuplets, a rare, extremely risky "high-order multiples" pregnancy, is unknown.
OK? WTF? Is she rich? 14 kids??? This bitch (yes, I said bitch) better NOT be on ANY public assistance.

Ex-Illinois governor calls removal a 'hijacking' (also USA TODAY)

The WFT part:

The Illinois Senate unanimously convicted Blagojevich on Thursday of abuse of power, making him the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to be removed by impeachment.

Blagojevich still faces federal corruption charges including allegations he tried to profit from selling President Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat.

Blagojevich did not ask to call any witnesses, and did not participate in the trial other than delivering his own closing statement.
He didn't participate. AT ALL. He is a moron. He deserved to be kicked out. He suggested Oprah could be a replacement senator for goodness sake. Delusional idiot.

Other Stuff:

My favorite Superbowl Ads:
  • The Bridgestone ad where the astronauts get their tires jacked
  • The Bridgestone ad with Mr and Mrs Potato Head
  • The Doritos ad with the Snow globe.
  • The Budwiser ad with the Horse that was too big to lift pianos and pull carriages was cute.

They are the only ones I remember what the ad was for and made me laugh

Don't forget to stop over at Have a Good Sandwich so that you can have a good laugh at Pitt Girl's last awesome post.
For Radio highlights to give you chills all over again(cause real fans listen to the radio not the TV): Steelers radio Super Bowl Highlights over at the Blitzburgh Blog.

I'll be trying to get pic's of the parade from work today. Wooo!

Anti Social Steeler Fan

Yes... no posts recently. I have been antisocial. Got a new(used) D800 laptop from my dad this weekend and discovered that my wireless router is bad... Plus I wanted to play with my lap top. Then I had to recover all my gray from when:



ok. I feel better. There will be further posts today.

I have to complain that all I heard on ESPN and NFL network is Arizona that and Kurt Warner this. Who won?! We did. Why aren't they talking about the Steelers and James Harrison making history. Or all the stuff we overcame this season? Or how many times Gandy held Harrison, or had him by the face mask and it WASN'T CALLED. That's why they let Holmes celebration go. Because it would have been a BEAT DOWN if Gandy hadn't held ALL GAME. Kurt Warner would have spent the superbowl on his back.

And I am sick of hearing people complain. If you don't like the Steelers then MOVE OUT OF PITTSBURGH.
Yes, its all over the news.
Yes, there is a Parade.
Get over it.
This city has loved its Steelers for years so why are you morons acting like this coverage is all new. It was the same thing in 2005.

You get no sympathy from me. Shut up and get out of my cube.
