- Some poor yuppie found a piece of latex in her trendy muffin. Frankly, I could care less, I think it's funny. The part the pisses me off is that the muffin's supplier seems to be doing everything he can to get out of it. it's bad enough that the number of complaints of foreign objects in food in the New York area is so huge that the Health Department can't get to them all, so they just fall by the wayside. But this, this is just patheetic. Only two compnaies supply muffins to the bodega where the muffin was bought; one doesn't make that type, the other clearly does...and yet, he's claiming that it's not from him, and wants a lab to analyze the muffin (at a cost of $600!) to confirm it's his. Would it have been easier to apologize, try to make amends and just be a good guy? He doesn't seem to think so.
- You know something is a trend when it gets it's own nickname. The latest: dirty driving, or drive-by porn. As more and more vehicles get these in-car DVD systems, seems more people are seeing porn in another's vehicle. Jesus fuckin' Christ on a rice cracker...porn while you drive? have a little common decency! Here's some things that REALLY scare me:
According to Wardsauto.com, an online trade publication, in the first six months of 2004, 401,000 domestic vans, S.U.V.'s and light trucks were produced with DVD video systems compared with 136,000 vehicles in the same class for the entire year of 2002. This year, the Consumer Electronics Association estimates that more than 110,000 systems will be installed after a vehicle is bought.Add to that the fact that these systems are available with up to 17" screens, and i just have to know: are you zombies THAT UNABLE to get away from your TV sets?
I am disgusted at the flagrant lack of respect for one's fellow man that I see around me every day.
