Out of the Blue

Happy 7/11! As always, those with access to a participating 7-Eleven location can help them celebrate the occasion by picking up a free Slurpee. The forecast calls for it to hit 93 F today in these parts, so I have a feeling a lot of locals will be availing themselves of this offer.

Play: FiM: Story of the Blanks. Thanks Boing Boing.

Well, most of the masses are fiddling while Rome is burning. Just ask yourself if the country was better off pre-MBA or post?


No offense, but that's never a good question to ask. I would sometimes hear something said like that from racists and such as well. NOT that I'm comparing Cutter's comments to that... just that I HATE it when someone says "was the country better off before or after X"

Technically you could say that about anything if the timing works even a little.

The US was in better financial shape before?

  • The iPhone became popular... darn you Apple

  • Lenovo bought the Thinkpad brand from IBM... darn you China

  • Bill Clinton messed up a blue dress... darn you Bill/Monica/etc

  • The Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2002... darn you Vinatieri

  • etc
