IT’S HARD OUT HERE FOR A NERD…

..when he tryin’ to get this money for the PC…
..for the MacBook and kernal effort spent (you ain’t knowin)
..because a whole lot of tech support service talkin shit (you ain’t knowin)
..will have a whole lot of Linux programmers talkin shit (you ain’t knowin)…

Hey, don’t judge. I never said I had mad rhyme-dropping abilities.

Here’s a collection of three stories that kind of dishearten the pro-science, pro-technology, pro-women and pro-geek crowd everywhere.

“Me Bill O’Reilly, me mad!”

BILL O’REILLY: When I was in California, I got a chance to watch the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News (trust me, the show’s worthy of many laughs). Of course, O’Reilly’s crazy as Andy Dick on various cocktails of drugs and plays the audience either for suckers, launtics or the fact he can say what he does with relative impunity (hey, News Corp. has to make some money off its news division). Normally, I kind of just ignore him and his “no-spin zone” antics.

But this really bothered me.

I don’t even have to say much other than: Bill O’Reilly is what is wrong with America today.

TOP FEMALE GEEKS: Normally I’d support anything that dispels the moronic notion technology is a bastion of phallocentrism, but CNet kind of goofed on this one. Paris Hilton. A geek?

Wait, read that again. Paris. Hilton.

All you have to do is look at this photo:

Oh look, Tara Reid is drunk – again. And so is her friend, what’s her name. Right, Paris friggin’ Hilton. Nerd indeed, because all us geeks regularly get wasted with billionaires and D-list celebrities. That’s how most of us spend Fridays.

And, finally, in another ode to America’s collapse into post-millennial, pre-fall of the Roman Empire-like behaviour…

CREATIONIST MUSEUM: Oh dear. Where’s Richard Dawkins when you need him?
