back to article Buffy's heart gets wrong kind of flutter from Google Buzz

Google Buzz hasn't just upset social web mavens, it's also alarmed US actress and sometime Vampire Slayer Felicia Day too. The flame-haired tellybox star unwittingly found herself trapped deep inside the Gmail Buzz vortex yesterday.

        Anyone know what...

        ...the US military response would be to seeing a woman being raped?

        Obviously the answer is shoot them both, then blow up the Chinese embassy.

        Well, how accurate do you need to be when you're dropping a 500lb bomb on someone?

        Definitely the US AF is accurate enough and probably more accurate that the GPS gear in your phone. (Just think I ran a mile while drinking my coffee outside of starbucks!)

        Seriously, what's the kill zone (blast radius) of a 500lb bomb? Definitely > 10 meters and I sure as heck don't want to be out in the exposed area within 100 meters. Would you?

        But you know the technology is bad when you have a non-technical-geek of an actress running away scared.

        Balmer because there is no icon of a Google with devil horns yet ... (hint. hint..)

    If you don't post anything, there is nothing to see.

        You must not have met the regular Martian here. I don't think English is his first language, nor last.

        He is lovely though.

    I think you mean a "flurry of messages", unless of course the messages arrived in "a thick suspension of solids in a liquid". But hey, maybe they did. This Buzz thing is full of surprises.

    Diamonds Aren't Visible In Beer, Check With Laser

    One beer/No beer/both of it. Or two (or more) beers as a preposition to the previous set.

    Anyway, talk about beer. So, beer=r00t, as humans don't dance around 1, 2 or another numbers in life, pity, though (-:

    Packet/No packet/Packet Lost. Tsunami Cloud.

    And, in spirit of the today, Jan_13 2009, God bless... err, you' re in trek.

    Grow up

    Seriously 2 lame haha look at these noobs in as many days. Gloating like that is such a tw^tty thing to do. Stick to acatual tech stories and google fail rather than picking at slight phopas made on social networks

    1. Cameron Colley

      I think you're missing the point.

      The main folk's pass here, and the one being criticised if you look behind the banter, is that made by Google -- who are by no means "noobs" and should certainly know better.

    Research fail

    If your research department had done any work at all, you would have known she had a handful of lines in Buffy, she was one of almost 2 dozen potential slayers in the last season.

    She's much better known these days for Dr. Horrible and Dollhouse

    social cross-section

    Young Felicia appears to mainly be Buzz-friends with male software developers, web developers, and programmers.

    I wonder if there's anything to that.
