The Tale of Cheeseburger Josh

Posted in Comedy, Food with tags , , , , on March 29, 2010 by Ro

Poor Josh.

Imagine you’re a Texas redneck… out with your friends celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day, drinking, having fun, wearing stupid green things around your neck. And suddenly your diabetes type 2 hypoglycemia flares up and you need to fuel up with a delicious cheeseburger or you will pass out. Logically, you’d go to the closest Whataburger for a cheeseburger. Which is what Josh tried to do.

The next thing he knew, his friends ditched him, the restaurant wouldn’t serve him, a hippie beat him up, and his bare ass was hanging out of his shorts. And it was all caught on camera. Now, the video is on Youtube for the world to see – and there is an entry dedicated to him on Encyclopedia Dramatica.

Poor Josh.

I Demand My /b/.

This weekend AT&T decided to block the 4chan /b/ forum. I have AT&T but the blockage never affected me because MY INTERNET WAS DOWN. But if I had tried to get to /b/ and found that it was blocked by my internet provider, I would have been really pissed.

“The LA Metblogs has compiled several sources that apparently confirm AT&T has blocked img.4chan at the ISP level, including reports from multiple TwitterTwitter users who cannot access 4chan and even calls to their help desk. We’ve also seen reports on Redditreddit.com. While we cannot confirm this news (or if true whether AT&T did this on purpose), it’s still a troubling report, especially if you believe this is censorship by a major ISP. The 4chan ban doesn’t seem to affect AT&T Wireless (aka your iPhone) or most regions.”

Eventually it looks like AT&T realized that they were no match for Anonymous, and they lifted the /b/ ban.  AT&T issued a statement regarding this matter:

“Beginning Friday, an AT&T customer was impacted by a denial-of-service attack stemming from IP addresses connected to img.4chan.org. To prevent this attack from disrupting service for the impacted AT&T customer, and to prevent the attack from spreading to impact our other customers, AT&T temporarily blocked access to the IP addresses in question for our customers. This action was in no way related to the content at img.4chan.org; our focus was on protecting our customers from malicious traffic. “

Crisis averted. Anonymous wins.

Now they’ve done it… The Church of Scientology has managed to piss off two of the most powerful entities on the web… Anonymous and Wikipedia.  Who’s next, L. Ron? Oprah?

Wikipedia has voted to ban all ip’s owned by the church and it’s associates due to less than forthcoming edits related to the cult. 

Cheer up, Scientologists. At least you get to keep Tom Cruise.

Oh, wait… NVM.

Wikipedia Bans Church of Scientology Wikipedia has banned the Church of Scientology from editing any articles. It’s a punishment for repeated and deceptive editing of articles related to the controversial religion. The landmark ruling comes from the inner circle of a site that prides itself on being open and inclusive.

 

In a 10-1 ruling Thursday, the site’s arbitration council voted to ban users coming from all IP addresses owned by the Church of Scientology and its associates, and further banned a number of editors by name. The story was first reported by The Register.
