Moron of the Day: I lost it.

I'd think it was one of you but I'm fucking sure none of you could even  half buy a Lamborghini.  Otherwise, the story checks out:

Initially, authorities in England charged Glenn Knowles and Richard Mant with trying to defraud their insurance company. The pair of men co-own a Lamborghini, or at least they did, until Knowles misplaced it during a night of binge drinking. Prosecutors weren't buying the story that Mr. Knowles took the car and then drank until he erased his mind as a way of coping with a bad time in his personal life.

The matter went to trial, and after six days, a jury conceded that it didn't seem like fraud, ultimately acquitting the pair. It's not the first time Knowles has lost a car. He once tucked a Mercedes behind a nightclub so well that it took a deep search to find it. This time, the Lamborghini seriously cannot be found, despite having a tracking system installed.

Parent FAIL

I don't even know where to start with all the levels of stupidity on this one.

Police believe [the three year old girl] mixed up the semi-automatic with a gun controller for the Nintendo Wii, which looks similar and which she had learned how to use from playing on the games system.

Douglas Cronberger, 32, the gun's owner, said he had forgotten he had left the gun out after he took it from its cabinet when he went to investigate a suspected prowler on Sunday evening.

I'm having a hard time believing this was an accident - teach your toddler that a plastic-but-somewhat-realistic-looking weapon is harmless, teach your kid that it's OK to point it at her own chest and fire, then leave out a real, loaded weapon.  I'd joke that it's weapons-grade stupid, but that'd be beyond poor taste.

Moron of the Day: Newsweek

Yeah, that Internet thing will never take off. 

Do our computer pundits lack all common sense? The truth in no online database will replace your daily newspaper, no CD-ROM can take the place of a competent teacher and no computer network will change the way government works.

Try reading a book on disc. At best, it's an unpleasant chore: the myopic glow of a clunky computer replaces the friendly pages of a book. And you can't tote that laptop to the beach. Yet Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we'll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Intenet. Uh, sure.

Hah.  The whole article is similarly hilarious in its complete and utter fail.
