Stupid Fight can't go out and administer an intelligence test to each person that's sending messages to a celebrity. So instead, it estimates based on several stupid indicators. Are they using twenty exclamation marks in a row? Do they endlessly use the abbreviation 'OMG'?

No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.

The impetus for the survey apparently came from a summer 2009 article in the Atlantic Monthly, in which author Nicholas Carr suggested that the ease of browsing and searching on the Web was steadily degrading people’s ability to concentrate and think.

Six natural disasters caused by human stupidity.Six natural disasters caused by human stupidity.

...it was a bit difficult for Texaco to sidestep the mystery of the suddenly salty lake and giant-ass waterfall that wasn't there before, and were forced to pay out over $40 million dollars, an amount of money that ensured the oil industry would never again cause an environmental disaster.

Daily Grind: Quite stupid

Name: Vin (aka transfer putz)
How Vin feels today: Quite stupid @ 9:08:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To double check and then triple check DNS settings before executing a domain transfer. Also, find a good hiding spot under desk for when the mob comes to get me.

Music Stuck in Head: Backwater / Meat Puppets
Mostly just that trippy bridge part, I really don't know why.

Stuff to do today:

  • Research methods in which to avoid lynching
  • Call in sick
  • Attempt to resolve DNS issue expeditiously
  • Move on to other less nausea-inducing topics
  • Thank Patrick for helping diagnose a bug with comments on GLM
  • Also, congratulate self for first set of inane comments appearing on GLM
  • Click here to have a looksie
