Microsoft Paint to be killed off after 32 years.

Saddest news today...

Also, what the fuck, that's a very useful program, makes no sense to remove it.

They have said they are not getting rid of it, just making it a free app on the Windows Store.

So it's moving to a nice big farm in the country where it can run and play with all the other programs.

I wonder how badly this is going to effect the sport. Jesus, that's awful.

I know there are arguments to be made about bias in data (how many people who choose to donate their brains are doing so with the expectation that there's no damage?), but 99%.

I'm surprised there haven't been more studies into CTE in regards to football. There's been a lot of denial, which really probably comes down to the fact that no one wants to lose money over a scandal.

But, it's already happened in the WWE. Say what you want about that company, but concussions are a huge issue. There's guys like Mick Foley and Tommy Dreamer who have taken so many chair shots to the head that they can barely function and have a normal life. Then, there's someone like Daniel Bryan, who was arguably their second biggest star, who was forced to retire because he was having seizures caused by concussions. So, if someone says it's not an issue in the NFL - a sport where you have 300 pound guys running into each other constantly - then that person is full of shit. Blows to the head are a bad thing.

Kill it! Kill it with fire!

Quote:
A woman in Topeka, Kan., tried to kill a bug with a cigarette lighter. She wound up setting her apartment on fire, forcing an evacuation of the building and causing extensive damage.

Topeka Fire Marshal Mike Martin confirmed that the blaze, which caused $140,000 in damages and the displacement of 17 people, resulted from an “occupant trying to kill a bug with a lighter.”

I think my biggest shock reading that is that there's a building worth $140,000 in Topeka.

I mean, it's an apartment complex. Even small numbers eventually add up.

June Foray, the voice of thousands of characters in cartoons since at least the 1940s, is dead. She was a month and change shy of her 100th birthday.
