Now They Don't Even LET You Read it

With the change from wildcats to mountain ranges comes a new and clever way to ensure that there is no doubt as to whether the customer has actually signed off on whatever conditions Apple might have.

Of course after clicking agree I wanted to read the thing to see if I'd signed away a kidney, a portion of my liver, or was now changing careers to be a non-compensated pivoting blade propulsor operator on some Apple Exec's eco-friendly yacht.

Alas: No trace of the agreement can be found.

I Wonder if There's a Bag Limit

Earlier today I found myself searching for an artist credit for this image. 


(Probably painted by someone not named Pinterest)

After over an hour I still don't have the artists name (in every instance it is used it is credited to one of several image hosting sites).

Normal procedures at this blog are to move on to a different picture (unless it's a reaction shot or meme).

However, the initial Google search I conducted turned up this astounding and edifying result.



Man.

I'll have to be more careful. 

Hit one of those, it's going to be worse than a moose.

In Oregon, Math Should be Used With the Utmost Caution

...because if you use it without government approval during a TV interview, you can be fined for Practicing Engineering Without a License.


...his research into red light cameras has earned him attention in local and national media—in 2014, he presented his evidence on an episode of "60 Minutes"—and an invitation to present at last year's annual meeting of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

It also got him a $500 fine from the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying.... 


'cause impersonating an engineer is serious business. 
There is one little detail though, (Scarcely worth mentioning).

 Saltzman has a bachelor's degree in environmental and civil engineering from Cornell University, a master's degree from MIT's School of Civil Engineering, and is a membership of the American Society of Civil Engineers.  

But he doesn't have a license to use his degree in Oregon.

Pepe' Strikes

I went for a walk and was mugged by a gang of little people in who forced me to buy emotional blackmail cookies. They were all dressed in green and I'm pretty sure they were French 'cause they wore berets.

...maybe I should...uh...clean my bedroom.



 

If ever there was an argument for E-books....


UPDATE: J. Greely suggests that this story may be dubiously sourced. If it turns out to be apocryphal, it would still warrant the word "ignominious", but in a slightly different context.

That Place Where The Turtle Died

The settlement down there looks to be imprudently positioned for any number of reasons.
