Screens of Death Humor

,----[ Quote ]
| The Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) once again made an epic appearance. This 
| time, it happened at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. Although 
| the Beijing blunder is hard to beat, this is not the first instance that this 
| notorious Windows operating system critical error screen appeared in the 
| wrong place at the wrong time. The other famous appearance of BSOD happened 
| when Bill Gates himself demoed Windows 98 on CNN (see video below).     


Steve, just because you broke into Xerox’s store before I did and took
the TV doesn’t mean I can’t go in later and steal the stereo."

                --Bill Gates, Microsoft


Blue Screen of Death Strikes Bird's Nest During Opening Ceremonies Torch

,----[ Quote ]
| Well this is just perfect. At the exact moment Li Ning was rounding the lip
| of the Bird's Nest during the amazing torch-lighting climax, someone snapped
| this photo of our good friend the BSOD nestled amongst the Nest's steel
| twigs. Perhaps an Opening Cermonies IT dude spit out his coffee on the
| machines in the server room when Li took to the sky? Another question is what
| a projection screen is doing inside the Nest at that location, but I think
| the better question is what wasn't going on inside the Nest's roof—did you
| see that thing during the ceremonies? Lights! Fireworks! LED screens!
| Everything! Anyway, if only one image of this perfectness existed we'd be
| skeptical, but thankfully, someone has grabbed more from a different angle
| that pretty much seal the deal.
