Mr. Scott? He's D.Y.K.
His remains will be shot into space, which is pretty fricking cool.

I know I keep going on about this show, and I can guarantee some of you think about this show and think "Ug. Made-for-TV sci-fi is terrible." ...and you're right. 98.76453% of it is, but if you take the minute-and-fifty-one-seconds that it takes to watch this trailer, I think you'll get a glimpse of the wit and character interaction that sets Firefly apart.
P.S. Blogging about Sci-Fi is about as dorky as you can get.
Coldplay's latest album 'X&Y' has some colored blocks on its cover. The blocks are arranged in a code developed in 1874 by Emile Baudot, to be used by telegraphers transmitting messages across wires. The code uses visual representations of 1's and 0's in a 5 digit sequence corresponding with particular letters of the alphabet and typographic symbols.
Hit up the Baudot text code generator
(now forever linked to Coldplay, bless their hearts).
AMG is going through some changes and these are things we're going to start enforcing:
It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If we see you wearing Prada sneakers and carrying a Gucci bag we assume that you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress in-between, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.
We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.
Entirely too much time is being spent in the restroom. There is now a strict 3 minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of 3 minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offender" category.
As long as you are employed here, you need all your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired you intact. To have something removed will constitute a breach of employment.
Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplation, and input should be directed elsewhere.
Have a nice week.

Detroit-area drunk driving arrests for one weekend in May.
Fave: 2:20 a.m. May 12, Ford and Lotz: A woman is stopped for speeding in a 2002 Ford Taurus. She says she had a few beers after work. Half of a 12-pack of Bud Light is behind the driver's seat. Several empties are behind the passenger seat, and a half-full bottle is between the passenger seat and center console. She blows 0.12%. On the way to the police department, she says she has to urinate. At the station, she says, "Never mind. I just peed in your car. I couldn't hold it."
why you little stinker...
Thanks Chicago Dave
