You Sir, have absofuckinglutely made my day.
I was thinking of this song and was just trying to figure out how I'd go about converting the binary part into decimal. Now you've written it down and saved me googling for the lyrics.

So here goes:

I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know

Police found Amanda Pogany's stolen 1996 Honda in a chop shop and were able to return it to her. While in the custody of the thieves, the car got a few upgrades, including a new V-8 engine, manual transmission, leather interior, tinted windows, and oversize tires. Unfortunately Amanda won't be able to play The Fast and the Furious around the neighborhood with her new souped up car. She doesn't know how to drive a stick.

2. The government and their departments have no problem with looking like complete fools (it's like a daily occurrence)
3. Oh yeah, and the president's son is an investor in the local Apple distributor (iDigital)

It's probably some mix of those 3 ingredients but I'm not sure in which proportions.

The most difficult thing in the world is to know how to do a thing and to watch someone else doing it wrong, without commenting. -- T.H. White
