How to Be Brilliant Without Pissing People Off.

Unfortunately, the article doesn’t spend a lot of time on self-assessment to discover whether one is brilliant or not or if one is just a jack.

I Hope There’s a Deep Discount on Tickets for Yesterday

Monday, November 26th, 2012 by The Director

So I was thinking about going to see the film Wreck-It Ralph to see if I could spot any other testers in the audience betraying the cause and rooting for a defect found in production. I thought about ordering tickets online because of the post-Thanksgiving crowds here in the United States, so I visited the theater’s Web site.

And decided not to.

You see, the first screen allows me to choose a date I want to go to the cinema, and the first choice in the drop-down list is yesterday:

Best in date of show

As you can imagine, when confronted immediately by a defect, I did not dare enter my credit card information.

If you’re from St. Louis, Missouri, you might hear whispers in your head saying WTFenberg. WTFenberg. WTFenberg. If you’re not, you probably need some explanation.

You Can Refinance When Your Daddy’s In Short Pants

Book coverA failed bit of boundary analysis in the banner ad here. It looks as though you can select an age, but of course, you cannot; it’s a simple image link that will lead you to the Web site of some sort of financing Web site.

However, they managed to let a little typo slip through that somehow implies that you can refinance when you are -20 years old. Now, I don’t know about you, but when I was -20, I was not even a gleam in my father’s eye.

Still, maybe there’s a Back to the Future plot in there somewhere. We take the DeLorean back into history and refinance 20 years before we’re born, which means we’re almost paid off by now. Assuming someone’s been paying those bills for 20 years.

I dunno. I got less than nothing. I’ve got -20 on the actual humor scale here. But I need to post something something.
