Well that's one way to increase your auction views...

TEXT of an actual eBay auction....


The auction is for a Dell Latitude D600. 60GB HD, 1 GB memory, Dual Band Wi-Fi, Very light scratches on the top, Screen is scratch free and shows up crystal clear. She took good care of the laptop. It has all the newest updates, and comes with office, Roxio and other programs. Just an all around good laptop to have. I bought this as a gift for my ex.

What is included in winning this auction is not only the laptop, but also everything else she left. Right now it is the laptop, the bag some cables, the power supply, some personal items, sunglasses, clothes and a book "the story of O". I will be cleaning my place this weekend so the bounty will grow.

This is the last of the crap my ex girlfriend has left at my place. She left me for an older guy she met on dumm dum duuu...my space. A 30 year old guy on MySpace hitting on 21 yr old woman. Whatever, hey props to him for being able to pull it off.
I figure what more fitting way to totally get rid of her then online.

I met this wonderful pain in my ass from a friend of mine (who I haven’t talked to since). It was his niece, and she had just moved out here from Kansas. At first glance she seemed perfect. She played guitar, was gorgeous, and was a monster in the sac.

The only glaring issue is that she smoked weed. A LOT. Every day.

She could cause her uncle, my friend, was pretty well off and paid for her. She had a hell of a deal, go out with me, get treated, go back to her uncle’s house, and get treated.

As time went on I found myself spending more and more on this chick and getting less and less, umm "return". After a month long dry spell I figured something was up and began paying more attention to what she was doing.

One day she said she was going shipping then out with some friends and would be home late, probably getting baked. As soon as she left, I spent the next ten minutes going over her computer looking for emails and passwords. She left all her info in a notepad in her my docs. I started rummaging around her yahoo account and came upon some emails from "Jeff". I knew most of her friends and this one was new.

Reading them it came clear this was the dick doing my girl.

So I signed in as her to yahoo and no joke within 30 seconds I got an IM from Dick.... I mean Jeff, asking if she was still up to meet at the mall.

I went red with anger, but then calmed down and thought this is her screw up not his. So I made a deal with the devil.

Seeing that sex had gone out the window a month ago (seriously from once or twice a day to nothing) I figured if I could get any neither should he. I started chatting with him but at the end I said "I would love to do anal tonight, but I don't like it slow, when you have me doggy style, just go for it. I will be ready all night" He replied with a simple OK. I then said, as her, I am heading out the door now.

No surprise, she came home early, around midnight slamming the door on her way in. I hear some noise in the living room, the laptop slamming shut, and zippers opening. I came out from my bedroom and asked her what’s wrong?

Her rant consisted of maybe 3 non obscene words, so I don't think eBay would let me print them. I did catch "you told him to butt **** me! How dare you invade my privacy?" She was so pissed she grabbed her overnight bag, leaving her laptop.

That was 2 months ago and she hasn't been back since. So that is why I am selling her laptop.

I would like to get at least 400 buck to recoup all the money I spent on her. Women should come with a refund option...

Duncan Hunter < / 3 Columbia



THIS just in from the Department of Overreactions.

It seems that Duncan Hunter, a congressman from Californa, was so upset that Ahmadinejad was allowed to speak at Columbia University that he actually is trying to pass legislation to prohibit Federal grants to or contracts with Columbia University.

The bill is ludicrously called... drum roll.... the "Restore Patriotism to University Campuses Act".

I really have to wonder, given that Columbia University is located in New York, and Mr Hunter presumably represents the 52nd Congressional District of California, how exactly is this in the best interests of the constituents he was elected to serve.

Feel free to write Mr. Hunter, and tell him how you feel.

Ecuador



THIS could get interesting.

The US maintains a base in Ecuador. The lease for the land expires in 2009. The Ecuadoran president has vowed that he will not renew it, unless Ecuador is given the right to open a base in Miami.

And so it begins

In the interest of compliance with the 2006 voter initiative on marijuana ... we are asking law enforcement officers to stop arresting individuals or writing and submitting tickets (with mandatory appearance dates) where the offense committed is solely possession of marijuana in misdemeanor amounts or possession of drug paraphernalia intended for use of marijuana

Gra$$

MORE and more I'm beginning to think that drugs will become legal for the sake of tax revenue, because the numbers are becoming entirely too large to ignore. I just read an article about Marijuana harvesting in Californa, and the numbers are absolutely staggering.

Since April the state's annual “Campaign against Marijuana Planting” has pulled 2.9m plants worth some $10 billion from back gardens, timber forests and state lands (see chart). Marijuana is now by far California's most valuable agricultural crop. Assuming, very optimistically, that the cops are finding every other plant, it is worth even more than the state's famous wine industry.


That is a huge amount of money for a state that is perpetually broke. My prediction is that California will be the first state in which Marijuana production will be legal, and it will be for the sake of collecting tax revenue on the crop.

The only problem is that the Federal government is ignoring the fact that California has legalized medical Marijuana, and continues to send agents in to raid "legal" growers. I expect the conflict between the Feds and the State to escalate on this issue, and it is only a matter of time before there is a legal showdown regarding states' rights.

Thugs: Incident 3064



SO it no appears that the definition of "Disorderly Conduct", according to the cops, is "standing around".

...the officer “observed defendant along with a number of other individuals standing around” on a public sidewalk in June 2004. Mr. Jones was “not moving, and that as a result of defendants’ behavior, numerous pedestrians in the area had to walk around defendants.”


That's right. This poor bastard was arrested for standing on the sidewalk.

Crack



FOUND an interesting article on Alternet today, talking about the disparity between sentences served for possession of crack cocaine vs. other crimes. Here is the money quote:

People caught with the drug in 2004, the last year for which data is available, served an average of ten years in federal penitentiaries, while the average convict served 2.9 years for manslaughter, 3.1 years for assault and 5.4 years for sexual abuse.


Now lets just put aside for the moment the fact that there is no logic whatsoever to why it is perfectly acceptable to poison yourself with Alcohol and Cigarettes, but doing it with a Colombian plant extract is a crime.

What I want to know is why is it that killing someone, as in ending their life, gets you less than three years, but having the materials on hand to get yourself fucked up gets you ten.

Radiohead: In Rainbows



Radiohead has just released their new album. It is being sold directly by them (no pricks at the record label taking a cut) and it sold in two versions. One is in a box with some vinyl, a book and some other crap, and the other is the digital version.

The box is cool, but the real zinger is the digital version. First and foremost, it is a DRM-free digital download. None of that iTunes "locked in to your computer" crap. Even more amazing - the MP3 version does not have a price. You can enter any price that you are willing to pay for the album, minimum is 1 L, max is 100.

In a final fuck you to the record labels, the album will initially be available only from their website. The regular retail version of the CD will not be out until 2008.

Can't buy me love




SO theres a company that keeps track of what rich people do. And when I say rich, I don't mean Paris Hilton, I mean people that have a net worth of between 1 and 10 million. It turns out that they cheat. A lot.

Of those confessing to an affair, more were women (61%) than men (43%). The reason cited most frequently by both sexes: variety.


You would think that maybe they should get divorces?

Most men responding to the Prince & Associates survey (75%) said cost is their main obstacle to getting a divorce, and 61.5% said they feared it would hurt business dealings and opportunities. Just 7.7% of men cited harm to the kids.


Money > kids it seems. What about a woman's perspective?

financially independent women were no less practical in their answers. The biggest obstacle cited was interference with business dealings (51%), followed by cost (42.8%). Just 14% said they feared divorce because it would hurt the kids.


Turns out that rich do know how to do one thing - hedge their bets. Unsurprisingly, women are better planners than men.

About 56% of women in the survey said they had hidden or protected assets, while 36% of the men said they had done so. Those with more than $10 million were three times as likely to have hidden or protected assets.

Thugs, Incident #7490




SO some dude is a victim of a hit and run. He calls the cops, gives them a description and the make of the car. The cops then proceed to grab some dude in a different car, beat the shit out of him until he suffers a heart attack. When the hit and run victim shows up and tells them they have the wrong guy, they let the guy they just beat up go, compliment him on his "acting", and leave him in the street.

Turns out the guy had heart surgery four months ago, and he actually did have a heart attack.

Guess he wasn't acting.

Cops patrolling the internet?

THIS just in from the "give me a fucking break" department.

police officers have begun patrolling the Internet sites where guilty parties sometimes freely admit to committing various crimes without apparent fear of reprisal.


I still haven't heard anything back from when my apartment was broken into, but these morons have time to surf social networking sites?

Can someone tell me

what is so wrong about this?

In the news today..

Why do I read this crap, I really don't know.

President Bush, in a sharp confrontation with Congress, on Wednesday vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have dramatically expanded children's health insurance. It was only the fourth veto of Bush's presidency

The Pentagon insists it has enough C-17 Globemaster jets, which are partly manufactured in Texas and used by the Air Force to ferry troops and weapons to hot spots around the globe. Nevertheless, lawmakers from the Lone Star State and elsewhere recently inserted in a defense authorization bill a requirement that the military buy 10 more aircraft at a cost of $2.4 billion.

Seriously. WTF?

Taylor Jo Doherty

18 March, 1992 - 8 March, 2007

Taylor Jo Doherty was 10 days from turning 15. Confused about being bi-sexual, she turned to the people that she trusted the most, her parents, for help.

They kicked her out.

She killed herself.

Encrypt? NO WAI!



THERE is a scene in the movie The Fifth Element in which the cops come to Bruce Willis' house. Before they enter, they tell him to put his hands on two circles that are painted on the wall, and with the push of a button, the door becomes transparent and they can see right inside.

Pretty fucked up right? The idea that the cops can arbitrarily invade your privacy whenever they feel like it? That day will never come, right?

Well, that day just got a little closer. I just got done reading that in the United Kingdom, a law is going into effect (today) which will make it a crime to refuse to decrypt computer data at the request of the police. The penalty for protecting your privacy is two to five years in prison.
