The lust of the media to make make up myths about kids’ getting high on weird stuff that no one is actually getting high on mystifies many.

Heh.

A Michigan man who thought he was having a stroke was hospitalized this week after eating several pot brownies that were baked by his teenage daughter, police report.

(snip)

The victim’s 17-year-old daughter told cops that she left the brownies out because she did not think anyone in her family would touch them (the girl was apparently unaware of the deep affinity middle-age men have to such unattended sweets).

Back in my younger days, I had one guiding principle: Don’t do something stupid and you won’t get caught.

Kids.

It’s this: The political media have no idea how the “whois” coomand works (let alone DNS or the whole damn internet, for that matter).

Once in a while, I toy with the notion of becoming a twit on Twitter, then Twitter convinces me to slowly back away.

I have no interest in watching Hollywood play with itself.

Indeed, that goes for all the entertainment “awards” shows. They are wankery of the highest order.

In my local rag, Bernadette Kinlaw takes on corporate doublespeak. A snippet:

CNN provided us with a wonderful yet horrifying example of gobbledygook.

Management had plans “to leverage internal efficiencies by enlisting external resources, thus driving a reduction in operating costs, thereby enhancing shareholder value.”

How would you interpret that?

We’re laying off people to save money and please our stockholders.

I worked in corporate America for a long time and I learned that long words and convoluted language meant one or both of two things: emptiness and treachery.

Do read the rest.

Afterthought:

You can rephrase the title of this post loosely as “git ‘r done.”

The National Transportation Safety Board said a GoPro video camera was found near the plane’s wreckage in Watkins, about 25 miles east of Denver. Recordings on the device showed the pilot and a passenger were taking “self-photographs” with their cellphones, using the flash during the plane’s takeoff roll, intitial climb and flight, the NTSB said.
