YHGTBSM 2/15/07

I wonder sometimes about how stupid intelligent people can be. I see evidence of it almost every day.

For instance, take some of the laws being proposed right here in California: One law maker wants to completely ban the sale of incandescent light bulbs in the state in favor of compact florescent bulbs. What difference does it make? Not a hell of a lot, considering all of the other 47 states connected to the same power grid are just going to be using those incandescent bulbs. Besides, CFLs are a harsh light, not easy on the eyes. The electronics in the CFLs used to generate the high voltage and frequency used to make the arc inside the lamps make a lot of RF noise. So much that you can hear it on your AM radio.

I really like Nevada's idea regarding their state legislature. They meet for 6 months every 2 years, and the rest of the time the legislators are back home working as they should. When you have people that think their primary job is to make law, they will come up with anything to prove that they are doing their job, no matter how asinine or just flat stupid it might be.

Oh, the title means "You Have Got to be S**ting Me". You can figure it out from there.
