Los Angeles - Blue Screen of Death, or BSOD as he is known on the streets, is wanted in the murder of overclocker Lee Ning. This is the fourth known overclocker death attributed to the notorious BSOD. Police describe the suspect as blue with white text, between 13.4" to 19.6" diagonal and consider him extremely dangerous.
Lee's friend Carol Singh was on the phone with him at the time of his death, "He said he had just achieved the perfect overclock and was just getting a screen shot to prove it. Next thing I heard was Lee screaming, 'No, God, No' and then some gurgling noises. That's when I called 911."
Police arrived shortly after to find an all too familiar scene: Victim sitting in front of their computer with mouth agape in an expression of complete rage, dead. "We tell kids not to mess around with their computers like this, but it looked like Lee was into overclocking pretty heavily," said Officer Rex Kramer of the LAPD, "There were fans and cooling tubes all around the room."
Lee's parents were in shock. "Why couldn't he just look at porn like all the other kids," said Lee's mother Holly. "We suspected he was overclocking in there, but we were hoping that maybe with all the tubing he was making a bong."
Officials say that BSOD can strike at anytime, usually when you least expect it, so don't let your guard down for a second. Authorities also suggest keeping your doors and windows locked, and use the buddy system when using your computer. Remember kids, speed kills.
(Sursa)A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled. As a single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS." The agent replied, "I'm sorry sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."
The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?" Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention please," she began her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14."
With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United agent, gritted his teeth and swore. "F*** you!" Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that, too."
