One of the things that amazes me to this day is why people would post something illegal on Facebook.

I just read where some kid was stealing gasoline from a police car which is stupid to begin with, but the stupidity didn't stop there. His girlfriend took a picture of it and pasted it on her Facebook page.

An arrest ensued.

How stupid can you be? It doesn't get any dumber than that...or does it.

I guess I'm getting a little worked up because as soon as I see something that out and out stupid, all I have to do is look around for a while and I'll see something stupider come along.

It is going to be a few days until I can sit down and write a decent post as life has gotten hectic and I am running 24/7 which is nothing new for me.

One thing, I wonder if the ham I QSO'd from South Dakota will send me a written signal report of some type. SD is the only state I lack a QSL from so I can bring my cards to the QSL card checker and put in for an ARRL Worked all States certificate.

I think after that I am either going to try my hand at Morse and work all states in CW (Morse code) or start tryig to go foriegn and see if I can join the DXCC (Distant Exchange Century Club) by working 100 different countries. I already have a few under my belt, including Northern Ireland, which I worked on the PRC-320 with only the 2.5 meter whip for an antenna. I had a pretty good signal across the pond that day.

  1. I saw the article on the kid who posted his crime on Facebook. Not the first time someone has done something stupid and gotten arrested because they blabbed about it. About ten years ago there was a news story about a bunch of kids who vandalized a house and video taped it. Yep, the 5th does not apply to video tapes.

    However, I am constantly amazed at how some people don't realize that when they talk about their "secrets" then other people know about their secrets. My wife has a friend who is still amazed that I have personal knowledge of events that she has posted on Facebook. /facepalm

    A secret is not a secret if you have told someone else.
