Playboy model roughed up. Couple jailed over Christmas for cigarette out window. Trendy New York bars. (more…)

Women no longer need to have periods. Douchebag officer Randy Cosens repeatedly tasers 13-year-old girl as she lay restrained on a hospital gurney. And check out how the cops torture people using these restraint chairs. (more…)

    N. J. law bans some sex offenders from the Web — for life.   I’m sorry, but this is bullshit. You have constitutional rights, EVEN WHEN IN PRISON, let alone AFTER you have served your sentence. This is a violation of free speech — by denying free expression — by denying access to a public service. “No internet for YOU!”  And what if someone uses the internet for their job?  Oh yea, I forgot: Sex offenders are to become pariahs, unable to work at any job, or live at any establishment. Jobless and living under a bridge in desparation, our children will somehow be made safer. Because driving criminals underground always makes children safer. (Sarcasm.) (more…)

      Armagnac (drink).  WTO/Antigua vs. USA = free stuff. (more…)

      Merry fucking Christmas! Man surrounded interrogated, humiliated, photographed, banned from Tyrone Square Mall for life because he couldn’t find his car!   Also: School To Continue Electric ShockWho owns fandom? (more…)

      Remember, tasers are justified to be substitutes for DEADLY FORCE only. Claudia Wright, Mike Chitwood: Fuck you. Turns out that yes, she was using her own credit card. She was guilty of accidentally leaving her credit card at the counter. That was her crime. Are you telling me that, pre-taser, she would have been beaten or shot? Is that supposed to make us feel better? (more…)

        And of course, How Sony censored the Father Christmas cartoonLakota Sioux IndiansLesbian pride. (more…)

        22 minutes to make an appointment. 13 of which they verified that my doctor quit.  I received a letter 5 weeks ago saying this. But they woudln’t believe their own fucking letter!  My last doctor died…

        Time to play the predicting game again. I predicted the last 50,000 hits within 48 hrs, a full 2 months early — but I did so accidentally using messed up math and calendar misunderstandings, so it’s pretty serendipitous because had I done the math right I’d be way off.  Anyway, it took me 78 days for 2 50,000s ago, and 66 days for the last 50,000.   At that rate of growth, the next 50,000 should be 55.8 days – Valentine’s Day.  We’ll see.  I’m apparently not as good at this prediction game as I thought.  My math is all messed up now.

        The Simpsons house – I haven’t seen The Simpsons house in quite awhile. And a flickr photostream is the #1 way I would choose to view such a thing (with PicLens to view full-screen!) (more…)

          Just to get things straight — a speeding tractor trailer, full of bricks, that had bad brakes crashed into 2 cars, killing 4.  New Jersey douchebag attorney William B. Ziff files lawsuit against widowed family members for reimbursement for repairs to the road.  Lawsuit canceled only after bad press.  (In other words, if you were, say, a poor black family that the media didn’t care about — the lawsuit would probably continue.)   Due to the way the law works, this means they can no longer collect the money from the actual responsible party: The trucking corporation. Sure seems like a bribe to me.  It seems like typical government licking the boots of big business. This was a “clerical error”? What the fuck? (more…)

          PigsFlickr Stats! (more…)

          Now that Flickr has stats, I thought I’d share mine. Just for the hell of it. 1 million views! w00t. Of course, my old personal webpage is almost up to 2 million. (more…)

          I believe this is the $14/month 2-dvds-at-a-time service.   My cousins, who I was told “liked movies”, did not bother to redeem the certificate, even after I sent an email about it.  So, anyone who can paypal me $13 will get 2-dvds-at-once unlimited for 1 month for a dollar cheaper than getting it from Netflix.  Is that enough incentive?  Probably not, but if I have to lose more than $1, I might just redeem them myself. Thing is, I might want to wait for HD-DVD/Blu-Ray before doing Netflix again.

          Thoughts on tiles for downstairs? Anyone? (Read on for some crappy pictures.) (more…)

            And of course: Teacher trapped inside a toilet for four days.   Hopefully it wasn’t in “The worst toilet in all of Scotland”, because this happened in Scotland! (more…)

            Ohio confirms voting machine vulnerabilities — remember, Ohio was the state that potentially stole the 2004 election (please refer to the Clint Curtis testimony to the Ohio Supreme Court). Anyway, cop shoots football player 3 times. Of course it’s okay. Other cops beat a man so bad he is still requiring 24/7 medical care 7 years later – do they help the victim? No. They don’t even offer a settlement until a lawsuit is imminent. They are heavy-handed bastards, jackbooted thugs. These police do not deserve anyone’s respect. Please note that both garbage man and taxi driver are occupations with a higher rate of deaths than being a police officer. Their excuses are hollow and these practices must be stopped at any cost. (more…)

            Ryan reviewed Robo-Rally on his blog. This is a great game! So great that it used to be $300 on Ebay! Fortunately, it is now back in print for about $50, with some slightly improved rules. I have played this game with people who have played it for 20+ years (Jason), people who like board games, and even with complete non-gamers (Tabbitha won!) — and it has always been liked. It hurts the brain a bit, too. Actually, it hurts the brain a LOT. (more…)

            Blacklights kick ass. Blacklight cats kick even more ass! (more…)
