A bunch from CJ

I'm still recovering from the weekend. Luckily, I got deluged by links from CJ, so while I'm recuperating and working here's stuff for you to read.

That $500 home definitely would not pass the design review in my HOA.

Nor mine, Eric, but I'd be proud to have a structure like that in my neighborhood.

There didn't seem to be any windows (maybe screen though), so I have to wonder what happens to the insides during a hurricane.

Things blow around.. and you put them back when if's over if you can find them. In a small storm, your house is still standing as the wind blows right through it.

10 initial charges for child porn, 90 secondary charges. I'd like to know how a cat can download 100 pictures instantly by jumping on a keyboard... and why you wouldn't delete them immediately. My only thought is that Captain Dipshit is going to file an insanity plea later.

JT, that cat's definitely got to be a touch-typist, which is impressive, because mine just has trouble holding down the shift key to get the ':' when typing in URLs.

The one jury I've served on, the defense attorney really harped on "beyond a reasonable doubt". In our case the law also specifically said "knowingly", which made that phrase even vaguer, but I can see a defense attorney throwing up all sorts of "don't really expect this to fly but hoping that it'll be a part of the background when I pull out the 'reasonable doubt' bits" smokescreen.

Well, JT, I suppose a script could be written and things arranged so that when the cat did what it normally did around the computer those images would be downloaded. When I was a kid I use to set my brother up to do things I wanted done but he would be the one taking the fall for it.

The $500 house looks fine for Hawaii. Its like my brother's house in Costa Mesa CA; one Chicago winter would leave it a stack of kindling and the inhabitants would freeze in their beds, but in a forgiving climate all you need is to keep the rain off. I also wonder what a local building inspector would say about using a propane grill for the stove without proper venting. And when you live much if your life out of doors or on a veranda, the size isn't claustrophobic. Hmmm, maybe I can retire to a place like this...
