Cracking an XBox to run Linux is like using a 500MB word-processor to write a 1 page letter. Waste of resources and effort, it profits only MS. Better contribute to some useful GNU projects, such as AbiWord - there's many of them out there that need attention.
I think baseball is a waste of time. It's stupid! Throwing and hitting a ball around; it does nothing to contribute to the progress of society. Why don't all those baseball players do something useful like construction work, or become doctors or fire fighters? Until they do, they are simply wasting their efforts on such a stupid thing as baseball.
