Throwing out the baby

I know this is a disposable society, but after reading this
article
we've taken it to new lows. The story talks about
how throwing your computer away when it becomes too
bogged down with spyware and adware is a rational
response. Not only that, it makes financial sense.

It does? On what planet? Not this one.

Some IT geek in the story says he grew weary of trying
to keep the adware off his computer. Ok...so what's going
to be different with his new machine? Nothing!

The sensible thing to do if your computer is that infected
and is driving you nuts would be to format and re-image
your machine with the restore CDs that it came with
(you did keep those, didn't you). Then...bam, it's like the
day you bought it and it didn't cost you a dime. That
would be the rational thing to do. Unless your PC just
plain sucks, then that's a different story.

Revealing? Try slutty

Reading this story reminded me of a conversation
I had with my wife a couple of months ago. Our
little discussion was mostly about the lack of a
dress code in a local elementary school I happen
to visit. I mean, I saw more tits and ass there than
I did in most local night clubs and bars.

I was shocked. Why didn't they dress like that
in my day? Damn I missed out!

Now that I'm grown up(sort of) I realize that's
not the way teachers should be dressing.

Freedom of expression? What kinda bullshit is
that? If your job has a dress code, you follow it.
Or be fired! That simple. No crying and throwing
a fit because you're expected to look like a professional.
Shit, for the money they're paying teachers around
my area, they'll wear a clown suit if thats what
I wanted them to wear!

To all the educators(yeah right) that insist on
dressing like an upscale hooker, grow up. You're
not in college anymore and when you show up for
work we expect you to look and act like it.
