Martha Mandela

Martha: I cheated no one

Stewart, in a pre-recorded interview aired Friday night on ABC’s 20/20, was asked by Barbara Walters how she would cope with prison life, including strip searches, if she loses her appeal.

“I could do it,” Stewart said. “I’m a really good camper. I can sleep on the ground. … There are many, many good people who have gone to prison … look at Nelson Mandela.”

Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years before emerging to lead the African National Congress, the liberation party he led to victory in South Africa’s first all-race elections in 1994.

Stewart, who has been steadfast in proclaiming her innocence, told Walters, “I didn’t cheat the little people. … We’re all little people. I didn’t cheat anybody out of anything.”

…is it okay if i call her a “stupid bitch”? just wondering… likening herself to Nelson Mandela is beyond retarded, it’s something you might expect from an introverted crackhead with a rabid case of herpes *shakes head*

No Scripting in IE

this is really bizarre… i’m not sure how it happened, but Javascript is broken in my IE browser at work Eeek!

i didnt change any settings, edit the Registry, install any software (that i know of)… but suddenly, i notice that all scripts dont work in IE… WTF?!? i first noticed something was wrong when i hop’d into Hotmail and selected a couple emails and clicked on the Delete button/link and nothing happened. then i switched back over to a page i was working on which has some onmouseover events and…. they don’t work anymore.

how the fuck does javascript suddenly stop working in IE? i’ve never had this happen to me outta nowhere… really f’d up, and has me scratching my head in wonder…. though the temptation to go on an IE-rant right now is pretty effin strong, i’ll refrain myself…. remember, i need IE when working on a site, no two-ways about it…. hell, it’s one of the most important apps on my XP system, if you ask me.

Windows broke my IE, and i’m not happy about it.

The Fix

well, looks like we figured out the problem… looks like a network based Norton Antivirus was pushed out to the clients on the network and it conflicted (eg. “fucked up”) my computer, which had a standalone copy installed… somehow a “scripting” service was disabled or error’d out on startup. looks like it’s all working now, though… thank gawd.

funny how much scripting is online that you don’t realize or pay attention to until it all of a sudden stops working on ya…. the only kewl thing about it? no banners, no popups! seems like it’s almost worth it… *sigh*

The “Duh” Factor

Childless couple told to try sex

A German couple who went to a fertility clinic after eight years of marriage have found out why they are still childless – they weren’t having sex.

The University Clinic of Lubek said they had never heard of a case like it after examining the couple who went to see them last month for fertility tests.

Doctors subjected them to a series of examinations and found they were both apparently fertile, and should have had no trouble conceiving.

A clinic spokesman said: “When we asked them how often they had had sex, they looked blank, and said: “What do you mean?”.

in today’s world, this is just bizarre, y’know? wonder who hit them both upside the head with the Clueless Stick… geeeeesh.

“X” Marks the Spot

OPERATION: PAINT THE CAMPUS WHITE

Operation: Paint the Campus White, or PTCW for short, was casually mentioned by a few members of our home as a joke. This joke quickly proliferated into a movement of epic proportions with serious members numbering upwards of 4 (exact number 5). Our goal… to masturbate in every building on campus during the spring quarter of 2004.

Below is a link to the map of the campus with X’s marked over buildings that have been successfully taken care of.

This Totally SUCKS!

What the #%@& is off-limits now?

“So, can we say ‘suck’?”

That’s what Fresh Air co-executive producer Danny Miller asked attorney Steve Schaffer. Miller was calling because emerging star Nellie McKay uses the word in a song excerpted in the program’s review of her album Get Away From Me.

No, said Schaffer. No “suck.” Though McKay was insulting somebody and not talking about sex, the word’s sexual connections make it a no-no in the new landscape of media regulation. Miller cut out the offending word and spliced it in backwards, leaving alert Fresh Air listeners to wonder why McKay would think something “skcus.”

Schaffer, like many communications lawyers, was wary of the FCC’s rapidly shifting use of indecency and profanity rules, signaled by its March 18 decision on an NBC broadcast of the 2003 Golden Globes.

is it just me, or when you read shit like this you suddenly have the impulse to get “militant” on these jackasses at the FCC? if the FCC were a person, i’d luv to stick a red-hot pocker up it’s ass right about now….. i mean, dropping the f-bomb on the air is one thing, but “sucks”?!?!?! is this a sick joke? how effin retarded…

i’d luv to see at least 5,000 500,000 people on the Mall in Washington DC all holding hands and solemnly saying “fuck suck fuck suck fuck suck fuck” in cadence, and have it air’d on the tv in a loop for 24 hours while being spoon-fed to the cumbuckets at the almight FCC.

just a thought…. *shrugs*
