According to the Colorado Springs Police, a 37-year-old resident who had been fighting with his computer for several months finally snapped on Monday night and decided that his disobedient Dell had to die. Armed with a handgun and some Office Space-esque rage, he took it into a back alley and shot it… eight times.

After “effectively disabling” the computer, the man was busted for discharging a weapon within city limits and will now have to see a judge, who will determine a penalty for the citation.

In order to celebrate Singapore’s 50 years of independence, Australia is sending the island a gift in the form of four koalas. The animals will be transported by Qantas in business class accommodations and fed an inflight meal of eucalyptus leaves while many of those who actually know what the hell is going on will pay for the privilege of sitting in coach.

The answer has been there all along. Tech writer Owen Williams decided to skip the endless debate on this important subject and go right to the source for answers: inventor Seth Wheeler’s 1891 toilet paper patent. As it shows, the toilet paper is clearly supposed to be hung in an overhand fashion.

Not like this means anything… the over/under debate will undoubtedly continue unabated, but overhand fans will have a new bit of ammo to back up their preference.

Norwegian Mom Henriette Jonassen has twin boys, and has a hell of a time putting them to bed – as you will see after the jump. Even as a time lapse, the video goes on for over three minutes, consisting of endless back and forth between the two rooms.

Apparently this was filmed as proof of Henriette’s suspicion that her latest bedtime routine would not be effective. Saying she was right is an understatement.

After spotting a spider in his laundry room, a Seattle man decided the best option for removing the pest was to nuke it with a lighter and a can of spray paint. Unfortunately, the wall of the rented home caught fire and all efforts to extinguish the rapidly spreading blaze proved futile, resulting in $40,000 worth of damage to the structure and another $20,000 in damaged or destroyed content.

So, did the spider survive? Firefighters stated that it isn’t too likely. We’re betting that it did and is currently biding it’s time before returning to finish this guy off.

At any rate, this is why “killing it with fire” isn’t always the best option. Maybe it’s time you considered the shoe?
