Ah, I love Anchorman:

Brian Fantana: [about Veronica] I'll give this little cookie an hour before we're doing the no-pants dance. Time to musk up.
[opens cologne cabinet]
Ron Burgundy: Wow. Never ceases to amaze me. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard's Delight.
Brian Fantana: No, she gets a special cologne... It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.
Ron Burgundy: It's quite pungent.
Brian Fantana: Oh yeah.
Ron Burgundy: It's a formidable scent... It stings the nostrils. In a good way.
Brian Fantana: Yep.
Ron Burgundy: Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.
Brian Fantana: They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.
[cheesy grin]
Ron Burgundy: That doesn't make sense.
Brian Fantana: Well... Let's go see if we can make this little kitty purr.

If someone needs to be trained to use Windows 7 then there is something wrong with them.

Well, yeah. Some people just aren't smart period. In the immortal words of Judge Smails: "Well, the world needs ditch diggers too."

I argued this point the last time it came up and was modded down due to the excuses that were readily available:

"He has Aspergers"

"He wasn't trying to do anything criminal"
etc, etc.

I agree with you 100%. It doesn't matter what medical conditions he has, it doesn't matter WHY he was doing it, he hacked government servers.

That's the bottom line.

Me personally, I don't mind the potential increase in cost. Granted, if it were across the board, I'd take issue with it (meaning across all areas of commerce) but for a specific gadget? I wouldn't mind. Would I complain? Maybe, but that's my right as a citizen of the US, right? To complain and not do anything about it? ;-)
