Catholic School Girls' Revenge

This is too funny:

A man described by authorities as a known sexual predator was chased through the streets of South Philadelphia by an angry crowd of Catholic high school girls, who kicked and punched him after he was tackled by neighbors, police said Friday.

Or, as Brandt said:

...the girls at the school were sick of his act so when he tried again yesterday twenty of them chased him down and with the help of two neighbors kicked the shit out of him.

Internet Math

According to TheStreet.com:

The enormously successful Google recently indicated that it hoped to go public sometime early next year. People familiar with the talks said the IPO could be worth between $15 billion and $25 billion, making it one of the biggest in history, with a 10% to 15% stake in the company up for sale.

Okay, if 10%-15% of Google is worth between $15-$25 billion, that makes the market cap range anywhere from $100-$250 billion.


According to my figures, Microsoft is worth $283 billion today. And they don't even have $100 billion in the bank, so they'd have to bust out some serious stock to buy Google if they think that's a reasonable valuation.

Does anyone else get the feeling that the mini-bubble is inflating more and more?

It's funny, in a way. Imagine how much Microsoft would be paying for a whole bunch of Linux machines.
