    This just shows the true beast, people at their best :p

    I think it would have been a better idea to review a group of people and give the computers to families that have kids in school that cannot pay for one

    Apple lovers are sick fooks.


    I agree, there are people who need them more, like other schools. Everyone there was probably a yuppie, who needed a lappie to look cool at the coffee shop.


    ****tards.

    Most any computer literate person would spring for a deal like that. Even if you didn't like Apple computers you would get one just to turn around and sell it on eBay for more. It has nothing to do with the cliche characterization of Apple users.

    Yeah, the most ridiculous images I've ever seen are from Michael Jackson concerts. :rolleyes: Also, riots at some international soccer games.

    I have done some security at those boy band concerts. Those little girls will do mostly anything to get backstage, it's really sad that some parents just let their kids go to an event like these without supervision.

    Crowd control. They needed to establish guidellines before they gave computers away. Without it they never had control.
