It's always funny until someone gets hurt

Heard this on the radio this morning...

Seems a school district in Virginia had a brilliant idea: "Let's sell our used Apple PowerBooks for $50 each!" Now, they had about 1,000 of these things, so you'd expect a pretty good turn out, right? I mean, wouldn't like to get a working Mac laptop for $50?

So, the big day comes along and something like 5,000 people are standing outside the gates. One woman pissed herself rather than get out of line - that's dedication, not to mention a good repellent for those around you. Instead of doing something logical, like, oh, say, maybe, calling the police to handle crowd control, the officials in charge of the sale throw open the gates.

What do you think happened? Yep; stampede. Old people knocked to the ground, kids separated from their moms, total fucking chaos. One guy even proudly proclaimed that he used a folding chair to beat back people who were trying to cut in front of him. Unbelievable what some people will do.

And people claim Detroit's a bad place. (sigh)

That story sounds all to familiar today. My problem is I would like more than 3 minutes of news that was good. And not when they are rolloing the ending credits

the classic rotten Apple that spoils the good ones in a basket.

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience
