There is a special place in Hell for people who post spoilers on Facebook


Last night, as many... well all of you know... was the series finale of Breaking Bad. The first thing you should know is that I won't be posting any spoilers here. Why? Because I love humanity and their desire for self-discovery.

I, like most people, love to find things out through the roller coaster of emotions it takes to discover them. A great example is nervously watching 5 (really 6) seasons of Breaking Bad to see it all come together at the end. Sit silently for a few months, gather in what you see. They scream "KICK ASS".

When do you NOT get to do that? When some jack-hole posts the ending 6 seconds after he saw it 5 hours because you get to. Who does this? Well, I had 4 friends do this exact thing last night. over 30 people combined commented in anguish. 6 years ruined by an idiot with a keyboard.

Who doesn't understand Facebook spoiler etiquette? I see it all the time. TV shows, movies, sports scores, and so on. People have knowledge and feel they need to share it immediately knowing others just don't want to know yet.

Especially since the birth of the DVR, Hulu, Netfix... etc. People watch when they have time. They don't run to their TV at 8 to catch Mad Men, they let it run a bit to be able to fast forward through commercials. Or even wait a few days. We can't be on a schedule anymore dammit!

So please note, if you're inability to post original content on FB and are reduced to copying dark music lyrics or spoilers... please defriend anyone you know who has a brain, free will... etc. Save them from you moronic nature and Buzzfeed post.

Now... a quick note. The end of Breaking Bad could be the best series finale I've ever seen. Congrats to everyone involved. You'll be missed.

Review of The IT Crowd Season 5 - The Internet Is Coming

They did it again, Graham Linehan noted that a 5th season just wasn't working scriptwise and combined with the core actors getting more work than they can handle, it looked as if new shows just weren't going to happen. What do you do in that situation? The UK standard of one last extended episode.

The Internet Is Coming aired today in the UK and it was just as good as we all wanted it to be.


How did I watch it you ask? One step above a tin cup with a string tied to it. My good friend Ben watched it live in the UK, while turning his computer to the screen, and connected it to me via Skype. It was as good as quality as 1995 Realplayer but still amazing. I watched it at work and did everything I could to keep from laughing out loud, giving myself away. I let Ben's laughter handle mine. Like the first 4 seasons, laughsapalooza.

The characters picked up where they left off. No slack (just women's slacks), and it felt just as organic as before. I was hoping for more interaction with Roy and Moss but the little they did was perfect.

I feel if I keep talking, I'm going to spew spoilers so for now.... I will just say it was everything I was hoping for. I can't wait for it to air in the US so I can watch it over... and over... and over... as I do with the other episodes. Thanks guys. I will miss ya. Game over.

Homeless Man does Breaking Bad impressions for Food (Fake)


Or should this be called Friends Make Friend With Beard Who Can Do A Few Bad Impressions Play Homeless Man For Views. I saw this video on Reddit today, it took me and 50% of the readers about 8 seconds to realize it was a fake. Sad thing was the other 50% who didn't. It's stuff like this that makes the internet suck. Not the video... but the dumb people who believe anything they see. The same people still worried Bill Gates is going to charge them 5 cents an email.
Anyhow, nice try but next time you try to fool the rest of the interwebs, don't do it on Reddit. They see bull and shred it with very sharp teeth.

(Edit) Here's where he's standing. So if by chance he was a homeless person, he's the dumbest homeless person on the planet. (Map)

(More Edit) Turns out the homeless man (Miles Allen) has an IMDB page.  I know a bunch of broke actors, but not too many homeless ones.

Did I Just Take The Sample Photo Of Instagram?

This weekend I heard what sounded like a flame thrower above my house. It turned out it was just a hot air balloon a little off course. By off course I believe it was going to hit my house. Side note, this would not be the first time my house was hit by a hot air balloon. I should play the lottery more. Anyhow, I took a few pics, one of which I sent to intagram (because it's what I do), it took a few seconds to remember intagram doesn't preview the image in the lower filter buttons. I almost instagrammed a sample of instagram.... glad my phone didn't explode.

No More Fighting


Yesterday I almost got into a fight. How close I'm not sure but a driver of a vehicle whose skills were lessor than mine was upset that I let him my feelings for him known through urban car dancing down a busy street.

Basically I was cut off, I expressed visually I was upset and was asked to pull over to discuss it.

I did.

I didn't exit my car but other person quickly ran up to my window acting like he was going to punch me. I didn't flinch or duck for cover. I just waited for him to punch me. He didn't and we began to argue.

Being 6' 4" and he being much less, I did slowly exit my car only to watch him quickly get back to his, we let each other know we didn't care for each other, I took a few pics and some video and I went along my way.

I drove home realizing I was almost in a fight. Something that used to be fairly normal to me, but not for a while. I can't remember the last time I was punched, or punched someone.

(This is actually not true, I can remember the last time I was punched and I painfully laughed in his face but that's a story for another day.)

Anyhow, I realized I'm probably a little too old for random fights. I mean, at what point am I an angry old man jumping around like a lunatic? Okay, I'm not freaky old but I'm not a 25 year old testosterone filled douchebag anymore trying to impress the locals. I'm kinda an adult. Kinda.

Anyhow. This is my note to myself to no long use physical action to show anger. No longer feel the need to knock the other guy down in order to prove my point.

To no longer be an asshole.

To quote my seldom worn T-shirt... let's hug it out.
