Cleaning a Macbook Pro - Semi special conditions apply

So I use the "Stumble" upon add-on for Firefox. It's a pretty cool way to literally "stumble" onto sites you'd otherwise never find. Well, in my stumbling, I found the following posted in the Forums at MacRumors. I just had to post it...

"I put my laptop on the floor with the lid open (because I was coding) so my girlfriend and myself could have some private time.

I'll skip the details, there's female juices all over my macbook pro keyboard. The reason why I state the substance is b/c it's important you know that it's sticky & is started to not smell normal 'n the like.."

Read the rest here. Reading the comments has reinforced my understanding that some people are just plain fucking stupid. Either that or incredibly sheltered.

Kudos to this guy. I hope he got his machine clean.

Filmgoers get a taste of the good life

Variety reports that new mega-luxury theaters are in the developing stages.

A recession may be looming, but a group of investors thinks Americans are ready to pony up $35 for a movie ticket.

Um, no.

Each complex will sport theaters featuring 40 reclining armchair seats with footrests, digital projection and the capability to screen 2-D and 3-D movies, as well as a lounge and bar serving cocktails and appetizers, a concierge service and valet parking.

Um, still no.

But the circuit will especially push its culinary offerings -- made-to-order meals like sushi and other theater-friendly foods from on-site chefs (a service button at each seat calls a waiter). Moviegoers will have to pay extra for any food they order, however.

Um, definitely no.

"The demand for luxury moviegoing in the U.S. is very strong, and by working with our partners, we are delivering on that demand in a way never before experienced by the American consumer," said Kirk Senior, CEO of Village Roadshow Gold Class Cinemas.

Well, good luck to you, but you won't be seeing me shelling out that much cash just to go out to a movie.

Am I alone here?
