Ycantpark du jour


When Yahoos are not discussing new API’s, the latest Valleywag rumor, or the pros and cons of cafeteria food, the discussions go back to people than can’t park between the nice white lines of a parking lot.

Today’s little victory is the Honda that happened to squeeze between the wall and this obnoxiously parked truck. Of course, a publicly displayed photo and humiliation via the internal mailing list follows.

Sarah Palin’s email exposed

Word leaked out that Sarah Palin was using a private account for sensitive government correspondence. She hoped to avoid an archived paper trail by using Yahoo instead of the official Alaska Government address. It was only a matter of time before a court figured a way to subpoena her for the email account to be released for the TrooperGate investigation.

Now someone has actually done it! They’ve figured out her password and published her email online.

This is a good time to remember your passwords need to be difficult to crack. She probably had something silly like “Jesus” or “Palin” or “password”. Add numbers and extra letters to your passwords and change them regularly. You should also use different passwords for your multiple accounts.

I can only imagine the juicy content ready to come out if she used the same password for her Netflix, eHarmony, MySpace, and Craigslist Personal ads. How many missed connections could she have in Alaska?

You were the hunk with the dead moose on your truck, I drove by and blew you a kiss. Wanna meet? I’ll blow some more…

Live video of being hit by lightning

Slowloris, a flickr user, was leaning out of her window recording the strong rain when she was hit by lightning. Luckily the metal railing she was holding grounded the strike and she was unhurt.
