Breaking News

So the elevator in my office building has one of those little tv screens that flash the latest news.

It's mesmerizing for everyone in the building. It makes the ride up to the office just a little more bearable to read the latest news, stock quotes, gossip, etc.

But occasionally it malfunctions.

For example, this morning, the following headline was displayed: "Memorial Day traffic is predicted to be very bad along the East Coast this year."

Huh? Memorial Day was last weekend!

Then, there was a headline about how "Gary Coleman is in critical condition in the hospital."

I thought to myself, "Oh, my goodness! Was Yahoo news wrong last week when it reported he had died? How ghastly for his family!"

Apparently it hasn't updated itself in nearly a week.

I just hope none of my coworkers relied on any stock quotes.



I love the comercials on tv talking about their memorial day sale and I wonder would they really give me the sale price now that the "sale" is long over?

sad about coleman, such a strange man he had become

The news is new every moment. Funny, how we all keep up with the collective knowing (but they choose what to report).

i "haha'd" over the relying on the stock quotes. it would've been funny if someone saw it and thought it was deja vu and used that info to really purchase stocks. wasn't it the week when the stock market took a massive dip?

I'd prefer to think that your elevator is the most mundane time machine ever--going back just a little in the past to a bunch of who cares stuff. But still, time travel.

What? is it not on direct satellite? Funny.

or yes, time travel, as RM points out. :)
