Is Google Full of Shit? Yes.

Google's latest assault on anything non-social media took the form of an inane "fresher is better" campaign, which   purports to give us better search results by upgrading more recent content.

Never mind that Shakespeare is a helluva lot better than "Fresh Prince of Belaire" or that the Beatles make My Morning Jacket look like the whiny little boys they are - "Fresher is better." That's, apparently, because everything new is better because it's easier to figure out if my facebook "friends" like it.

Piss on you, Google. I'm switching to Bing...

Confidential to...

...the paranoid woman - young, African-American, athletic - running along the hike-n-bike path in Terry Hershey Park, Houston, on January 5th:

When you say "I can't hear you. Got my headphones on." to someone, in the world of normal, polite people it means "I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you."

     I'm not certain what it means in the nasty-bitch universe you must inhabit; maybe "I don't want to hear you"?

Whatever: if you're that damned paranoid, you shouldn't be wearing headphones out in the world anyway.

Oh, yeah, and all I said to you was, "Thanks for looking back before moving over in front of me." So there.
