I’ve had several jobs that involved processing tickets. The software often sucked and was frustrating to use. Even worse were the tickets themselves: vague, inane, confusing, infuriating. It’s time to let these tales of these ticketed tortures be heard. Do you feel my pain?

The fire hydrant. For decades, it has been feared by any New York City driver who dares to venture out without a tape measure. If your car comes within 15 feet of a hydrant, the next thing you know you may be at the tow pound, picking it up with a several hundred dollar bill.
Let me start this out by saying I didn't "hack" something in the black hat Hackers way, but by finding a market inefficiency and leveraging it to my advantage. It must be the day trader in me. No harm was done to any computers or systems in the making of this post.

The scene: your girlfriend and/or boyfriend (hey, nothing wrong with polyamory) got you tickets to The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Did you hear about the unfortunate man whose dog ate his tickets for the Masters? He forced his dog to vomit, then pieced back the chewed up tickets as proof of his purchase. That's disgusting.

Apple's "iTunes Movie Trailers" app is one hell of a misnomer: it doesn't just beam down the giant library of trailers we love. The new app lets you buy tickets, find nearby theaters, and chart film releases on a calendar.
On September 26th at 10:00 AM, thousands upon thousands of fans—how many we'll never know—hit refresh on their browsers and converged upon Ticketmaster's servers like a denial-of-service attack.

Right now, you should be saving $25 to $50 when you buy an airplane ticket. Why? Because Congress didn't approve a bill to keep the FAA running, which means the FAA doesn't have the authority to collect taxes on airfare, which should mean no taxes for you!
