So I usually resist the urge to cross-post stuff I read on Fark, but this is a good one.  Headline is: "Laid-off religious workers shocked to learn they cannot collect unemployment because their employers are exempt from paying taxes. God dammit"

Here's the actual article:

Not laughing at them losing their jobs, but aren't these the same people who want "government out of my religion!"?

These people are morons, plain and simple.  If you don't pay into the system, you don't get the benefits of the system.  Just like my wife, as a teacher, doesn't pay Social Security (this shocked me to the point where I refused to believe her for quite some time), and she can't receive it no matter what - not even mine if I die!

Speaking of morons, I sat behind Michael Rosebaum at the Dodger game last night and he is a total douche bag, not to mention a Mets fan.

He was somehow confused that people actually go to the games to watch them and not give a shit that he is some D list actor. It was highly annoying watching him run back and forth in the aisle to talk to Jonathon Silverman behind us, trying to attract attention to himself, while I am trying to watch the game!

He got pissed and left the game crying the whole way out after Church missed tagging 3rd base and lost the game for them. My shouting "Suck it Lex Luther" probably didn't help the matter, along with the girls next to me heckling him too. I'm not sure if that was the acknowledgement he was looking for....

However, sitting to the right of Lasorda and seeing Ron Cey, very cool!

Speaking further on morons:  My business e-mail account has received nearly 500 pieces of spam in the last two hours.  Fortunately, most gets filtered out, but there still a ton of shit to sift through!  WTF!?

Bunky - Did you get the "I Blew Lasorda And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt" t-shirt?  I heard he always carries a couple of the shirts with him...

Be careful with that kind of talk Bunky - you're implicitly insulting Smallville by extension, and then by further extension, Bells.  Oh wait, maybe he only cares if someone besmirches Tom Welling's reputation.  Never mind.

I might have to throw a "Suck it" Bells way if he likes a guy who hands a ball to his friend in the seat next to him and says loudly "hold my balls, I'll be right back," and other lame comments to make it noticed everytime that he is leaving his seat.

No Jack, I did not get the shirt. I didn't want to bother him since he was there to watch the game. However, if I see him on the street, I am getting my shirt!

I am dragging Patrick to the game on Sunday, so I will have to keep my eye out and see if he is handing out shirts!

1051 spams and counting since this morning... seriously?  What's with today!?

From: Jackzilla Entered on: May 19, 2009 4:58 PM

1055 and the spammers are... spent.

Here's an HOURLY report showing spam rate on our Barracuda (anti)Spam Appliance:

Spam Report

This represents average traffic/spam rates.  Yes, we average roughly 90%-95% spam.  We get almost NO false-positives (1 or 2 messages a week get blocked that shouldn't), so these numbers are accurate.  Incredible.  If I ever meet one of these spam douche-nozzles in a dark ally...

From: Ross Entered on: May 20, 2009 12:43 PM

I'd say, just by looking at my gmail spam folder, I get about 95% spam as well.  But their blocking is probably 99% effective - I only get one or so per day slipping through into my inbox.
