This is awful. I love it.
* Every now and again I use “rn” instead of “m.”
* I asked a guy at work if he’d ever got “that creepy deja vu feeling”. A week later, I did it again.
* I’ve been slowly increasing the mouse sensitivity on both of my roommates computers. In 2 weeks I’m going to put them back to the default and pretend like mine is slow too. I’m interested to see the conclusion that they will come to.
An Illinois police officer caught asleep by a passing student warned him that it was “now illegal to record a police officer in public” despite the fact that it’s perfectly legal to do so in that state.
Matt Fedora, a student at Southern Illinois University, was surprised when he saw a cop sleeping in an Illinois church parking lot for three hours, and, in his own words, “pissed.” His own house in the neighborhood had been burglarized, and two others had been robbed nearby, and he hoped that the unidentified officer would at least try to prevent such incidents.
But the conversation quickly went south, according to the blog Photograph Is Not a Crime:
“You’ve been here for the past three hours,” Fedora said. “Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me.”
“I’m not lying to you,” the cop said.
“If you keep lying, I’m going to post this on Youtube,” Fedora said.
“Oh, so you’re recording?”
“Are you aware that it’s now illegal to record a police officer in public?”
This is from 2002 but that doesn’t make it any less batshit insane.
