In the papers today

Read a couple of news stories today.

Man is an independent contractor working on a shop being de-fitted in a mall. The store owners tell him that the main contractors have completely cut the electricity so he can go in and start working. So he works. And works. Like, forever. Then he sees a wire hanging from the ceiling so he gets himself an aluminium ladder and climbs it to do some clipping. They found him electrocuted to death. Poor man. This story reminded me of this:

Human League - Together In Electric Dreams

A biker gang (not pic) surrounds a man driving with his girlfriend. Man pulls into somewhere secluded and the car stalls. Bad luck. The motorbikers extract said couple from the car and proceed to (a) bash the guy into orange juice, and (b) rape the poor girl. Biker gangs suck ass. They caught them later, with chicks in the gang no less. Racketeering? Bah... This story reminded me of this:
