Stuff White People Like

This is totally our favorite new blog. There’s lots of material to parse through, but here’s our favorite post thus far. [thanks Jeff]

#28 Not Having a TV
The number one reason why white people like not having a TV is so that they can tell you that they don’t have a TV.
On those lonely nights when white people wish they could be watching American Idol, Lost, or Grey’s Anatomy, they comfort themselves by thinking of how when people talk about the show tomorrow they can say ‚”I didn’t see it, I don’t have a TV. That stuff rots your brain.”

"Maverick" Votes Against Torture Ban

Does anyone need further proof that this douchebag will do anything to get to the White House?
Speaking of unscrupulous, Hillary’s team is now officially talking about giving the DNC a big fuck you by demanding that the delegates be counted in Michigan and Florida. No big surprise here since, like McCain, she’d do absolutely anything to obtain the nomination.

R.I.P. Polaroid Instant Cameras

This sucks. Dov Charney’s gonna freak out. From Boston Globe.

Polaroid Corp., the Massachusetts company that gave the world instant film photography, is shutting down its film manufacturing lines in the state and abandoning the technology that made the company famous.
Polaroid has already quietly halted production of instant cameras. “We stopped making commercial-type cameras about 18 to 24 months ago, and we stopped making consumer cameras about a year ago,” said Beaudoin.
“It’s about time,” said Ron Glaz, director of digital imaging program at IDC Corp. “The fact that they’re getting out of film makes complete sense.”
In the years following World War II, Polaroid’s instant photography products established the company as one of Massachusetts’ leading industrial concerns, and made its brand name famous worldwide. But in the late 1980s the company went deeply into debt to fend off a hostile takeover. It invested heavily in products that failed and was unprepared for the surging popularity of digital cameras. By 2001, Polaroid was forced into bankruptcy; privately held Petters Group Worldwide of Minnetonka, Minn., bought the company’s remaining assets in 2005.

Chip Rowe Welcomes Us To "Cyberdumb", 1994

We found this post from 1994 endlessly amusing:

Welcome to CyberDumb…
Cyberspace has to be the most overblown recreational activity to hit America since cocaine. If you read the hot magazines such as Wired, you know that you’re either online or one of the 230 million Americans who are hopelessly behind the times. Well, I’ve been to the information highway and back, and best I can tell the Internet is a collection of morons typing moronic messages back and forth about moronic topics that make you feel like a moron for participating….
Ironically, when us regular folks log on – the ones who visit our grandmother so she won’t die alone, who grow gardens so the birds have a place to rest, who visit the library to help a boy retrieve a book about Thomas Jefferson from a high shelf – we are pushed to the bottom of the Inter Caste. We don’t know enough, we don’t know what we’re doing, we’re asking dumb questions. There’s a Netiquette, as it’s called, that says you shouldn’t ask dumb questions. Of course, a dumb question is anything that’s been asked and answered. READ MORE
