I read that and I thought just how terrible it was. How stupid do you have to be, and how far do you have to go, to try to get a picture?

Seriously, and it is not restricted to the West, the East is fast catching up with that stupidity aspect.

Case in point:

Several years ago I had a bunch of random pictures cycling through as a screensaver on my PC at work.  Cat pictures, movie posters, Godzilla pics...just stuff I found interesting, amusing or funny.  One of the pics was this:



Apparently someone complained to HR and my boss had to stand over my shoulder and verify that I deleted the pic from my screensaver.

I HATE political correctness run amok!

I remember that!
People are always worried about offending or upsetting others. It's hard not to offend somebody these days because people are so overly sensitive. I just stick to my beliefs and the things I enjoy. If they offend someone, so be it.

It's so stupid.  That pic is just humorous.  Period. 

I'd say the same thing if the one owl was a fat, gray-feathered owl and the caption said "Beer lovers - We all know one".

I'm so glad I work from home full time now.  I had my annual review last week and I asked my boss if she'd heard anything about revoking WFH now that the company bought this huge 5 story building from Monsanto.  I told her I don't think I could work with other people anymore after working from home for 3 years because what few "filters" I had are long gone. 

Fortunately she hasn't heard anything about stopping full time WFH.  They aren't letting anyone new do it however.

Wow.  I have to quote what I just saw Dennis Miller say on TV:

Quote :
We praise everybody.  We're raising a generation of emotional hemophiliacs ready to throw themselves on the tempered steel of any minor upset.

Like a stupid owl picture perhaps?  Or some dumb vanity license plate?

Wow, here's customer service at it's best. United’s motto: “Fly the friendly skies.” Ridiculous!

United is sure taking a public relations beating over this.

Go to about the 4:10 mark for a mockup commercial for United.

Yeah I've been following this on the news.

What the hell were they thinking?  They could have just kept upping the ante to buy people off the flight.  I guarantee you if they'd gotten to $1500 or $2000 they'd have had takers. But instead they pull this stupidity and are going to spend at least 100 times those amounts in legal fees and lost revenue due to bad publicity.

And the dumbass CEO just made it worse by trying to defend the action.

United Airlines is still reeling from the PR disaster, which saw a drop in its share price of 3.7 per cent in early trading on Wall Street – wiping $830 million of the airline’s market cap.

It would've been MUCH cheaper to offer more to the passengers.

I swear one of these years the annual Darwin Awards list will be totally owned by people doing stupid stuff with phones.

Quote :
A young woman suffered injuries and was rushed to a hospital after falling from a bridge while taking selfies, according to police in California. The Placer County Sheriff's Office said that the woman, who was not identified, and a group of her friends from the Sacramento area, were walking on the girders underneath the Foresthill Bridge. The woman took a selfie and fell from the girders, landing on the trail approximately 60 feet below. She was rushed to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where she is being treated for broken bones. She is expected to survive. "The walkways under the Foresthill Bridge are closed for the protection of our residents and our community. Any trespassers found on the bridge will be cited. Be safe and tour the bridge from the sidewalks above. This young lady is very lucky to be alive and the consequences could have been worse for her, her friends and her family," a spokesperson for the The Placer County Sheriff's Office said.

Sadly I don't find that story that surprising.  More "progressive left" BS run amok.  I think the Easter Bunny nonsense was just BS.  CAS simply doesn't like the couple's religious stance on things in general.
