Random acts of stupidity

I don't have much to say on the following. It is just a case of what the heck are some people thinking?

If you are going to try and hoover all information everywhere... you shouldn't say this. Although this probably isn't any better.

If you want people to give you their money to keep safe... robbing you shouldn't be this easy.

If you want people to take border control seriously... this, this, this are not going to help. Also, work on avoiding anything that smacks of trust us.

If you are working with radiation... certain things should be donefirst so you can avoid thesethis and this.

Just ask Ford what a little stupidity can do.

Cut and Paste are simple, right?

In another entry in our occasional series, "Cleaning out the bookmarks file", we have an entry on Cut and Paste. Cut and Paste are things that should be ridiculously simple. However, the existence of various clipboard enhancers shows that it is not. Another example of how complicated it can be is this classic. I never thought learning the fine details of clipboard theory would be interesting but the bookmark has been with me for longer than I care to think about.

Another part of it that I enjoy is that it reminds me of my youth when things like Wikipedia and even About.com did not exist. If you had something to say you put it on your own webpage. The times I found fascinating information maintained by someone who cared made the internet a far more interesting place. It seems nowadays it is easier to find what you are looking for if it is popular with the right people but far more difficult in other respects.
