Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Don't be ashamed, it's a nice homage to his skills. :wink:

There is an anecdote about a (Renaissance? Baroque? Can't remember) painter who added a fly on one of his paintings just to poke fun at people trying to chase it away.

Artist auctions off virus-ridden laptop for $1 million

A laptop infected with some of the most destructive pieces of malware ever may sound like the kind of ticking time bomb you'd expect only in sci-fi movies. But one man has created just such a machine, and it can be yours — if you have about $1 million to spare.

No, this isn't some shady dark web marketplace. It's an art auction, and the current bidding price is around $1.2 million.

The piece, by artist Guo O Dong, is titled "The Persistence of Chaos," and the name is apt because the laptop could wreak some serious havoc. The old Samsung Netbook that runs Windows XP is infected with half a dozen extremely dangerous pieces of malware that, cumulatively, have caused nearly $95 billion in damages, according to Dong.
