What the hell is wrong with you? I don't need an exhaustive list, I just need to know WHY installing Sametime causes my machine to use THREE HUNDRED MEGABYTES of additional memory. That's before I even start it. It's a fucking IM client. Please explain to me why I shouldn't firebomb whatever part of your organization is responsible for this travesty with extreme prejudice. Soon. This Enya track won't last for much longer, and them I'm going to start getting really pissed.

So...if I order a Supreme Court, that comes with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream, right?

Either way, [livejournal.com profile] kate_nepveu posted a link to a poll by another lawyer type which is related to a meme that's also making the rounds:

As was demonstrated in an interview with Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun.


Now, I'm not going to do the meme as it's written, I just wanted a jumping off point to rant about something that's bugging me.

The original bailout Paulson asked for was a seven hundred billion dollar blank check that had verbiage in it that excluded it from oversight or review by the courts or congress.

Okay, congress excluding themselves, while stupid, is within their power.

My real question here though, is where the fuck do they get off telling the Judiciary that it's not allowed to review the law? Last time I read the Constitution, the Judiciary was an equal and independent branch and congress had no right to tell it what cases it can and can't hear.

How the fuck exactly do they justify this hubris, and more importantly, why the fuck does the Judiciary put up with it?

If one of you lawyer types can explain this to me, well, I'll still think it's complete and total bullshit, but I might be a little less likely to get incoherent and stop seeing red every time it comes up.

Please die!

I'm once again drowning in back scatter as I get thousands of mailer daemon reports of delivery failures to non-existent addresses from MTA's that are too stupid to reject the message in the first place, as it didn't come from the domain claimed by the From: line, thanks to some dick head spammer having scraped my address off of some list and used it as the sender.

Dear stupid systems admins, please quit your jobs and kill yourselves, you're just as responsible as the slime who abuse your misconfigured systems.

I don't give a fuck that you make multiple millions of dollars, have the title of President of our division, and can theoretically fire me. If you don't quit fucking spamming my mailbox about the corporate PAC? I'll filter your worthless ass right the fuck out of my box just like any other dickhead spammer.

Important News Regarding Netflix Profiles

Dear Jamie,

We wanted to let you know we will be eliminating Profiles, the feature that allowed you to set up separate DVD Queues under one account, effective September 1, 2008.

Each additional Profile Queue will be unavailable after September 1, 2008. Before then, we recommend you consolidate any of your Profile Queues to your main account Queue or print them out.

While it may be disappointing to see Profiles go away, this change will help us continue to improve the Netflix website for all our customers.

If you have any questions, please go to http://www.netflix.com/Help?p_faqid=3962 or call us anytime at 1 (888) 638-3549. We apologize for any inconvenience.

- The Netflix Team


How the fuck is this an improvement? I'm losing functionality and convenience.

It used to be that seeing a Mercedes or BMW marque on a car was a sign that you've probably got a huge asshole of a driver in front of you. Lately, that role seems to have been taken over by Lexus drivers.

What is it with these people in their overpriced Toyotas that makes them thoughtless, reckless, and uncaring?

Acura and Infinity drivers don't seem to be any worse than the general population, and maybe the other drivers of German cars have just stopped being assholes to me, since I'm in the club, but Lexus? Nope, it's almost guaranteed that the power suit wearing man or woman behind the wheel drives like they're doing you a favor by magnanimously allowing you on their road.
