If you get run over following Google’s walking directions, you deserve to die

A Utah woman used Google Maps’ walking directions on her Blackberry and was given directions to walk onto a highway. She got hit and is now suing Google for damages. –Fortune

People who sue Google because they get run over by a car while following walking directions deserve to die. Period. What you don’t do is live and then sue Google. Can’t this idiot see the HUGE warning disclaimer that the directions are in beta and to use caution? Apparently not. Besides, what pedestrian walks on a highway? I don’t care if Google told me to jump off a cliff – you need to pay attention to your surroundings. It’s like that fucking idiot who followed his GPS onto railroad tracks, then bitched when he got hit by a train. If Google loses this lawsuit, I’m going to kill a kitten.

Social Darwinism – if you are too stupid to pay attention, we don’t want your genes on this planet.

BP is Retarded, and so is Top Kill

I never use the word retarded. It is plain offensive. I would never use it to describe anyone with an intellectual disability. But in this case, BP is fucking retarded.

So Top Kill failed to plug this oil well. I decided to do a little research on the actual procedure and found this on Wikipedia:

BP tried to shut down the well completely using a technique called “top kill”. The process involves pumping heavy drilling fluids through two 3-inch (7.6 cm) lines into the blowout preventer that sits on top of the wellhead.

Please explain to me how pumping heavy mud and concrete through two 3-inch pipes would be enough to stop a well that is leaking 5,000 barrels (210,000 US gal) per day. No wonder it failed. The blowout preventor didn’t even work anyway, so you’re going to pump mud through it? Common sense here folks… I could have a three year old tell you that wouldn’t work.

The world will end by 2012 guaranteed. So start looting, doing whatever you want whenever you want and living it up. Enjoy.

Gaming Controllers Suck

You know what sucks? Gaming on a PS3 or Xbox 360. For the life of me, I cannot use the damn controllers for first person shooters. There are two knobs, it’s impossible to get the target where I need it to go. But when I’m using a mouse and keyboard – clutch. It just works.

Here is a clip from today’s Opie & Anthony show – they are arguing about it. And the dude who plays on keyboard makes 100% sense:
