-- What's one of the web's biggest annoyances? Captchas. Looks like they're going to be extinct soon. Humanity wins over technology, for now.
Ticketmaster customers will now face “phrases, questions or ads” during check-out. One would imagine that asking questions about the world might be a risky proposition, ignorance being rather more widely distributed than one would hope. It's hard to come up with questions that can be reliably answered by any human being that stumbles across a given website.
-- In all my web surfing, I can't believe I hadn't come across anything mentioning the struggles of the Gap. Franklin Park's store closes this weekend. Everytime I bough their jeans, I'd regretted it. Nothing personal, just not the perfect fit. Yet, I still kept buying them! I guess the Gap needed more customers like me. --
-- I call this trolling the trolls. Beyonce sang the national anthem live at her Super Bowl press conference yesterday. Do I like her stuff? Eh. Is she a talented singer? Yes. And remember, the halftime show isn't necessarily all about singing. It's about entertainment. I guess she's going to actually sing tomorrow, which is fine if you're Adele and you're inert on stage with just a mic. But I expect Beyonce to be active on stage, and believe me, it sounds like hell when you've got panting singer trying to sing. This is where you tell her to work the f%6k out. Stop.
-- This week's buzziest web story is about a tip and a note on an Applebee's receipt. She apologized, but I'd guess God's response would be for you to gratefully thank others who have serviced you. So he/she/it is cool with the 18%. --
-- Russia has called on Boyz II Men to help increase the fertility rate in the country. This is NOT from The Onion.
The group will perform a selection of their classic and new romantic ballads, hopefully giving Russian men some inspiration ahead of St. Valentine's Day.” The Times insists that the band will be lending their “powerful voices” to Putin’s fertility campaign. Whether or not the Russian kingpin personally got on the phone, tracked down their agent and demanded that they “do the show right here” is pure speculation on the newspaper’s part. It’s a little hard to believe … but it’s also not impossible to imagine.
-- Playstation is going to announce a PS4 in a few weeks. Feels like the 3 just came out, but it's been over 6 years. I won the money for mine by winning the 2007 office football pool. And I had money left over ;) --
-- I'm an enthusiastic sports observer, though not a fan in the traditional sense. An issue about mental health really set me off last night, so I took to my blog. It's brusque, graphically candid and at times excessive expletives are used. So you're warned, but enjoy it and all the other posts that I pen. You can go here for the personal page, or here for our sister station. If my thoughts strike your sports interest, you may enjoy my two minute commentaries as well. --

-- It's difficult to HEAR the commercials if you're at a bar for the Super Bowl. So here they are. And, BTW, since the game is played after 6, and goes till 10 ish, shouldn't IT the BIGGEST BAR NIGHT OF THE YEAR? --
-- Whole ee sheet. The Go Daddy Super Bowl commercial. I screwed up by not learning learning how to build web sites. Leo should've stuck with Bar, she's in my top five. --
-- This is how some of those Southern states get the hick reputations they do.
A dog in Tennessee whose owner dumped it at a shelter because he thought it was gay was saved from euthanasia at the last minute by a kindhearted animal lover.
The dog was left with a rabies control shelter in Jackson, Tenn., this week “not because he’s mean or tears things up… But because his owner says he’s gay!” the group Jackson TN Euthanasia, which tries to find homes for dogs in kill-shelters, posted on its Facebook page on Wednesday.
How about we euthanize the former owner.
