Wonder Woman Car Stolen

I hate to say it but they’re expecting it’s return because of unique paint (decal?) on the hood …  Don’t most cars that get stolen end up dismantled for parts?  I feel bad for this woman and I do hope that’s not the case but I’m not optimistic.

Facebook Defriending Leads to Murder

Not really all that surprising.  I’ve seen a lot of people use “defriending” as a high insult towards another individual.  Stupid yes but there it is.

Finally someone else validates my viewpoint!  We have too many immediate “HAVE TO LOOK AT THIS RIGHT NOW!” notifications reaching us on a daily basis.  It’s distracting and needless.
