Can anybody tell me...

...why.. Coca-Cola uses Coke in glass bottles in their advertising (ok.. they use cans too) but you can't actually buy Coke in a bottle? Have you ever had Coke in a bottle? So much better. Yeah.. you can buy those silly little 8oz bottles around this time of year with the big fat red guy on them. And yes.. that is a serving size.. but COME ON! 12 or 16 oz in a GREEN GLASS BOTTLE PLEASE!!

America.. I love it

In 2007 California will spend $3.3 Billion on its state university system and $9.9 Billion on its prison system - LA Times

Ohio State's $109 million athletics budget provided and average of $110,000 for each of its 980 athletes, about triple what the school spends to educate each student. - Wall St Journal

My Job Description

My Job involves explaining things to idiots.
Then the idiots make decisions based on misinterpreting what I said.
Then it is my job to try to fix the massive problems caused by the bad decisions.
Eventually, rumors overwhelm facts, and I give up.

That about sums it up. That darn Dilbert.

How was your day?
