Happy Super Bowl Sunday — go Giants!

Here in Tampa, we’ve been listening (a lot) to the “Oops, I didn’t know the microphone was on!” Britney Spears audio clip, and laughing our asses off. The clear group favorite part: when she freaks out and screams “Oh, my pants are too short! I grew!”

Do me a favor, will you? Remind me to re-read the top ten SSH FAQs this week, when I set up my newest Linux box.

Cool — it appears that I made it onto Yahoo, in the Online Journals and Diaries > Web Logs category. (I took a screenshot, in case they realize how lame this site is and renege my membership.)

What a piece of shit decision by NBC, yanking this past week’s Law & Order episode from the air forever. I saw the episode, and it both didn’t seem to have much offensive potential and was based, in part, on the reality of the 2000 Puerto Rican parade. My TiVo, back in NYC, dutifully recorded the episode for me; if anyone wants a copy, I’d probably be willing to make a tape for you.

Today is the 15th anniversary of the loss of STS-51-L, known to most of the world as the Challenger space shuttle. Seventy-three seconds after liftoff, with a good deal of the U.S. watching on television, Challenger exploded, taking seven lives with it, including Christa McAuliffe, the first civilian passenger on the then-new space vehicle.

O.J. Simpson continues to appeal the verdict against him, and he continues to lose. What a joke he has become.


I listened to that Britney Spears MP3. I heard about the incident, but that wasn’t REALLY her was it? That sounded so pathetic, it had to be made up. (I think that MP3 is a fake)

If that’s real… well, it’s not like I had any respect for her to begin with, but still.
