OK, All I saw was a 4 second video of the CNBC logo (after waiting a long time). So, who is Steve Ballmer and what happened?

Works fine for me and other people that I sent it to. Must be a problem with your OS / web browser / firewall or something.

Steve Ballmer is this nice guy! I don't know why people egged him when he was travelling to Budapest.

He and I used to play some card games with his nerdy friend Bill when we were in college. They tried to get me to join them on some venture that they were going to quit school for, but I decided to get my degree instead.

Bill was kind of a dork- but he was pretty good at cards. I wonder what happened to my good friends Steve and Bill?

That's what I got to.

I was expecting some sort of reference to this:

I actually caught a different discussion of this earlier in the day on CNBC. After the fact, David Faber suggested that the guy was probably a Yahoo Shareholder.

Leave Randy alone! He's a mainframe guy. All this crap about Windows and the Micro-whozis is far too newfangled for him!

Part of me thinks you do this on purpose, Randy. I mean, really. It's not even pop culture or TV this time. He's the frigging CEO of Microsoft, one of the biggest companies in the U.S. You have heard of Microsoft, haven't you?

Wait, what? So what if I sound cranky and am being a big jerk.

Oh. blush

Sorry Randy.

So, the kid was upset that the Hungarian government signed a $45 million contract with Microsoft for IT training. His t-shirt said "Microsoft is Corruption" (a ballsy statement coming from an Hungarian) and demanded that Ballmer return the 45 mil "stolen from the Hungarian people".

However, as baseball is not a Magyar pastime, he missed with all three eggs he brought along and was quickly ushered out.

Was anyone at least kind enough to offer him some bacon with his eggs? Maybe a pancake? With a bunny underneath?

Do these contain 'bricks' or 'rocks' within that?
