Man, when I was a teenager, I would love nothing more than to visit my local technology shops, they were my equivalent of a strip club... Growing up in southern Caleeforn-ya, there are many to choose from - Best Buy, Circuit City, Fry's, Sam Goody, The Good Guys, etc... I often commented that I would love nothing more than to take a mattress and move into the back of Best Buy and live there until I grew old and retarded - be the weird guy in the computer department...
Well, the more I learn about electronics, the more I realize that Best Buy isn't for us geeks... For those that have a clue, or those that just do their research, their stocks aren't exactly what you would call "good" or even "worthwhile"... Of course, this doesn't apply to ALL their products, I'll leave the Video Games / Dvds / Mice / Wires / simple purchases out of this conversation... They carry generic products, have horribly undertrained / unintelligent staff, and 'treat their customers like commodities' - to quote Leo... Anyone that has a geek friend will know enough to stay away from 'brick and mortor' stores like Best Buy and head towards the more competitive online marketplace... I have 3 buddies that (have) work(ed) at Best Buy, and can't stop talking about how shitty they are...
Opinions like ours aren't completely random either, and most are taken to harsh, sometimes violent extremes... Check out:

So anyhow, I found these sites that allow you to generate error messages and warning signs to take away minutes of your afternoon boredom... The galleries of user submitted entries aren't really that funny, but worth a view for a chuckle... Mine are much better, and if I should say so myself, they deserve an academy award...

Growing up, I've always enjoyed drawing things and taking tests... So my prayers were answered when I found out that you can do both AT THE SAME TIME!.. Holy fuck shit, I can die happy now... Check out: the Piggy Drawing 101 / How fuckin crazy are you? exam online... If you wanna know how nuckin futs I am, take a look at this shit... The original really looked much better than the shit hole one in the link... Why can't they preserve piggy art in it's original, most perfect form?... Damn communists... [hindsight being 20/20, I should have just drawn a tail that filled the screen]
