It appears that a couple deranged and stupid little girls decided that it was a good idea to stab one of their friend in order to become agents of Slender Man. Much like every other crime, people are looking for who to blame, in this case, I’ve seen a couple of articles that are blaming Slender Man. “Who is Slender Man?”, you ask.
Apple appears to be filing suite against a grocery store in Poland, because they have the domain a.pl, pronounced “apple”.
I could understand if this was company selling music that decided to call themselves Apple (something apple has been familiar with over the years, as they have been on the receiving end of multiple lawsuits for it), but this is a grocery store, as in a place that actually sells apples. They are in no way competing with Apple, and are not marketed in a way that would confuse anybody about what is going on.
It’s bad enough that they would sue because Samsung made a device that was rectangular with round corners, but suing a grocery store who’s website is a cute spelling of one of their actual products? A product which, I would hope I don’t have to remind people, predates the computer company by several thousands of years.

Can we maybe get a few scientists elected into some positions in our government.

Maybe a few engineers can switch careers and go into law and then become judges so we can get this kind of crap thrown out?
