Bart wrote “South Park – We’d stand beside you if we weren’t so scared” on the chalkboard in one of the latest Simpsons episodes. After having South Park talk about Simpsons AND Family Guy, it’s nice to see a FOX cartoon giving a shoutout back to Comedy Central! Go cartoons! Fuck all religion!
GOOD! Sony, Apple, and other companies are leading the charge in a new kind of legal wrangling: “We tell you what you can do with your property after you buy it.” It’s a techno-legal wrangle to get past the first sale doctrine and other legal protections. It is not deserved. This firmware update takes away functionality that people paid for. I still will not buy a PS3 [or XBOX360] due to the amount of freedom you are supposed to voluntarily give away for the privilege of paying them to own their product. Let’s see Sony fry on this one.
… Foot, insert into mouth.
Remember when Obama promised Guantanamo closed in a year…. a year and a half ago?
Interrogated 142 times starting at age 15, I’d admit to throwing a grenade too. If he actually did it, his own testimony is invalid due to torture. Way to go, guys.
International law treats child soldiers as victims.
I don’t really care if this guy IS guilty: He wouldn’t have killed that American soldiers if we hadn’t invaded the wrong country in the first place: 99% of Afghanistan has nothing to do with 911. It was mostly Saudis who caused 911. The Taliban just let Al Queda set up camp there. But Al-Queda is gone from Afghanistan now — less than 100 there according to the Obama Administration. So why are we sending more troops again?
Yay! 100 eps is a good milestone! If only every great AdultSwim show would last this long!
As much as I don’t like the sound of Arizona’s new immigration law — this is the county I grew up in, and a similar but not identical law gave measurable results in drastically decreasing crime and saving money.
Interesting to me was that they saved at least $6M in ESL teaching. Want to come to our country? English is a requirement. But you gotta learn it on YOUR dollar, not ours.
This link was used against me in an argument, but it’s a good link.
