Miss Nevada pictures? WTF?!?!

Over the last couple of weeks, there's been a bunch of media exposure of Miss USA Tara Conner about her drunken, cocaine-sniffing stuper. Now this morning, I saw some of this shock-and-awe "Breaking News" on CNN about Miss Nevada being stripped of her duties as well because of similiar actions.

As the phrase, "pictures posted on the internet", echoed into my living room, I just couldn't resist heading to Google. Now that I am reflecting on it, I really don't think I've ever supped this low to investigate such garbage, but when I found those pictures after about 2.5 minutes of googling, I really was... BLOWN AWAY! ...and not because she's a very gorgeous woman doing erotic poses and actions with other gorgeous women, but because you have to be a FUCKING idiot to do that!

I hope my two daughters don't ever get stuck in that type of whirlwind of shit when they get that old, then have me watch the news and see their to naked mugs all over CNN or Google images.

Anyrate, I'd be labeled gay if I didn't link to these pictures so every one of you could make your own judgement. If anything, it's pure amusement to see Miss USA give immitation head to an Eminem wanna-be. Ha, truly humorous!

So bored, I think I'll look at Teddybears?!

I'm in training this week at work (more Java programming, wahoo!) and if you've ever been in training before, the first day is usually a small waste of time set aside to all the people who haven't programmed since 1985, or who are OO-clueless asking what a class is, ect.

When my mind starts to wander during the overview sections of the class, I have a bad habit of looking at other people's computer monitors to see what they are doing. It really is a humorous adventure in itself. I've seen everything from offbeat news to horse purchasing (yes, the farm animal).

However, this was a new one to add to the list of things to look at when you're bored. A rather sharp gentleman to my 2 o'clock position was looking at the history of the TeddyBear (yes, the stuffed animal) and flipping through another website touting the text "Last Hug TeddyBear". I didn't see a wedding band on his hand, so it's safe to assume it's probably 'not for the kids'. If anything, that's just flat-out creepy, but outlandishly funny.

Now what did I do? I tried to look for that site he was looking at. So that tells you just how bored I was...

Windows 'Too Hot' for my laptop

I have this Dell Inspirion 1100 and it's been a good laptop for me. It was cheap, I was deploying to the motherland of Iraq for a year, what the hell, right? On top of this laptop being quite beefy when it comes to the size and weight of things, it's also got a very powerful, yet heat-intense Celeron processor in it.

On a side note of this, I'm a pretty big Linux fan. Always have, always will be (contrary to blokes out there who operate such vile blogs: I hate Linux Blog. Because I'm such a fan and devoted wifi wardriver amongst other things, I dualboot XP Home and whatever fancy flavor of Fedora core that is out there.

Well back to my laptop; it overheats and ALOT. There isn't a time while I am using my laptop, booted into XP Home, that after 30 minutes goes by, it starts; the heat and the buzzing of the outtake fan trying to cool things off. If I proceed to use, after an hour or so, the battery gets so hot that the battery indicator light starts to flash, warning me to shutdown and let the battery cool down for awhile.

Funny, I was doing some development while booted into Linux, laptop sitting on my kitchen table under a dinner placement (e.g. air intake not so good) and is this thing hot? nope. Is the battery about ready to spontaneously combust? nope.

It's safe to say that it's more than correlation: Windows is just 'too hot' for me to even use anymore.
