An earlier story than the one I posted yesterday, which gives more details of the pitiful "attack" attempted by the r-tards in London: Beavis and Butthead in London jihad.
And perhaps a nice quote from Margaret Thatcher: "Democratic nations must try to find ways to starve the terrorist and the hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend." Yeah, or, the government could jump on the terror bandwagon in order to subvert democracy and push their own fundamentalist totalitarian agenda. But we're way too smart to let 'em do that. I hope.
The people and acts that the media calls "terrorists" and "terrorism" are getting dumber and more clueless, but the stories remain sensationalistic and we're all supposed to be on red alert for these dipshits who probably can't tie their shoes without getting their fingers caught in the knot. The Register has more in this story: 'al-Qaeda' puts on big shoes, red nose, takes custard pie.
Microsoft Surface: Have they not heard of ergonomics? Leaning forward, looking down and reaching across a table that's at knee height isn't something you'd want to do for very long. Maybe mounted like a drafting table it would be O.K. Where does the keyboard go? Don't tell me this is handwriting only...
Gas is so expensive that Credit Cards Cut Off Gas Purchases due to anti-fraud limits.
The Washington Post covers e-mail overload with E-Mail Reply to All: 'Leave Me Alone'. I suspect that this, combined with spam, is going to lead some people to some kind of reject-unless-whitelisted email system in the near future, in which they have secret email addresses that only a tiny number of people can send email to without it being bounced. Either that, or they'll get wise and have 1-2% of their email filtered (again by whitelist) into an inbox that they actually read, and the rest will be either ignored or deleted immediately.
This is a few weeks old, but here's a reminder of what Jerry Falwell was actually all about.
Faisal noticed that the Google terms of service say "You may not use the services and may not accept the terms if (a) you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Google". OK, so the legal age of majority in the U.S. is 18. Google is copyrighted, as is every result page. The MPAA and RIAA have been working to push laws through Congress that make copyright infringement a criminal issue rather than a civil one, so the government will be obligated to do the dirty work of arresting teenagers for downloading Spider Man or American Idiot, instead of the parties who claim to be harmed having to use their own money to hire scummy lawyers to do it. So does that mean that anyone under 18 who uses Google is a criminal?
Well, if Alberto Gonzales gets his way, it would mean jail time. Over-copyrighting mixed with over-protection of copyright means that everybody's a criminal.
