Dad shoots at computer "accidentally"

Aggravated that his son wouldn't stop playing computer games to do the laundry, forty-four-year-old Florida resident Joseph Langenderfer did what any good parent would do: he shot the computer.

Well, technically he shot at the computer, missing by some three feet and reinforcing his apparent lack of 1337 skillz in shooting games. Langenderfer has been jailed and charged with one count of attempted murder. Come on jury, he wasn't trying to kill the kid, just that darned computer.
