Video: Microsoft's Ballmer pelted with eggs

Microsoft's chief executive, Steve Ballmer, narrowly avoided getting egg on his face on Monday when a furious Hungarian student began pelting him with missiles during a lecture at a university in Budapest. Hungarian news reports suggested that the student was upset that the country's government has awarded a contract to Microsoft to provide software and IT training to local professionals under a program called Titan.

In the video the student is congratulated by fellow students, one of they holding a Mac iBook. It is probably the Mac's fault.

What, no Tasers? I'm glad the guy walked calmly out of there, but for once Tasers might have been justified because the guy was actually physically attacking Balmer.

I guess the lesson is give idiots room to be idiots. The silence after his stunt said everything. No Taser required.
