Facebook took down an ad for Bush’s baked beans because its algorithm wrongly believed it was a political ad.

This is the same Facebook that took down the Declaration of Independence because they considered it hate speech.

I had a lovely conversation today with a gentleman who sounded like he was calling from a call center in India. He was from the chimney cleaning company.
You know, THE chimney cleaning company. I asked if it was the same company that cleaned my chimney last year and he said yes.

It was a lovely conversation.

My house has electric heat and no fireplace. There is no chimney.

I would've told him to come do it again if he did it last time.

ANd I would tell them I'd double what I paid them.

Tell him to send you a picture of him in THE chimney cleaning hat.

There's a limit to how much I'm willing to harass a bottom feeder who has my real name and address. I suppose I could have corrected his records and given him the address of the nearest BBQ place or something.

Did he speak with an outrageously terrible Cockney accent? Is he prone to dancing on rooftops in large metropolitan areas? Did he suggest that shaking his dirty, filthy hands would cause good luck to rub off onto you?

No on all counts. He sounded less like Dick Van Dyke and more like Gandiandimandapujandi Stankypoo.

Well here's a fun little development.

It seems that there are those among F*c*book shareholders who want to remove Hitler 2.0 (aka Mark Zuckerberg) as the company's chairman. An actual proposal has been drawn up by Trillium Asset Management, who hold approximately $11 million of their stock.

This is occurring after F*c*book announced their earnings yesterday and the value of the regime dropped by about $148 billion.

Do you understand the facebook will continue without Suckerberg?  It isn't that he has to go, Facebook has to go.

They both have to go.

Yeah, turn it all off and force everyone to DIAL into locally-run services hosted on Amiga hardware. *wistful, distant gaze*

I wouldn't mind a return of the Amiga, even though I no longer have one.

Wasn't a terrible system, although I'm sure it's a bit dated by today's standards.
But only a bit. *stupid grin*

It would be ok to say that the Amiga was ahead of its time. More accurate would be to say that the Amiga was state of the art, but lived in a world where the de-facto industry standards were retarded by other players
manipulation.

Well, Mehdi Ali didn't exactly run the company terribly well, either.
