Dead soldier’s father ordered to pay Westboro Baptist Church

This is absolutely and outrageously offensive, and stupid. For decades now the Westboro Baptist Church has run amok with hate speech and public demonstrations that strain the limits of public decency.  I still don’t understand how this country got so fucked up, do you?  How can organizations like the ACLU defend this group’s hate speech …

Santa Fe man hypersensative to electronic devices sues neighbor for Wifi use.

Wow, talk about a crazy neighbor. This is a new one for me, but the Chicago Tribune’s Michael Haederle wrote an article a couple days ago describing the plight of a man from Santa Fe, New Mexico who claims he is hypersensitive to certain frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.  Of course, like any other good American …

50th Anniversay of the Copier (& my tangential ramblings!)

Well, it seems this month marks the 50th Anniversary of the office copier.  It’s a milestone that definitely deserves some attention, as the first copiers revolutionized communication and office work.  Granted, the first copiers clocked in at a bit under 605 lbs and regularly caught on fire, but it was worth it to not have …

Stelarc: The Man with Three Ears

I first came upon the work of VICE and in particular VBS.TV a few months ago when I was introduced to a documentary of theirs where they actually got a chance to travel into North Korea and get a taste of what that culture is like.  I was pretty shocked that what is basically an …

‘Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar poised to become school mascot!

The University of Mississippi, also known as ‘Ole Miss’, is apparently looking to replace it’s mascot and is allowing it’s students to choose.  The University is replacing the mascot because the current mascot is a slave-owning plantation owner lovingly referred to as ‘Colonel Reb’ and they feel he is no longer a suitable mascot. A …

What is “White”?

When I was in high school I took an accelerated class that was constructed by Tuft’s University. It was called the EPIIC program, or Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship. My year the topic happened to be ‘Race & Racism’. We read, reviewed, debated and wrote about articles on race and racism from all …

Looks like you can’t trust that ‘Energy Star’ Label

The [wikipedia]Government Accountability Office[/wikipedia], a arm of the US Congress that audits and evaluates government offices, recently “punk’d” the Environmental Protection Agency.  Apparently the EPA bureaucrats approved a whole assortment of bogus products.  75% of the 20 products submitted that ranged from a gasoline powered alarm clock to a product that claimed to be an …

Best ‘Dumb Tech Support Call’ ever!

This is probably my favorite “dumb tech support call’s” I’ve ever seen. A woman calls up Leo Laporte from techguylabs.com. She’s complaining that her wifi signal from ‘linksys’ disappeared and doesn’t seem to understand that no one is going to give her ‘support’ when it disappears – because she was STEALING it. And she doesn’t …

Sandra Bullock’s scandelous husband Jesse James can’t possibly give me any more douche chills, can he?

As most people know by now [wikipedia]Sandra Bullock’s[/wikipedia] husband, bike-builder Jesse James, has pretty much pulled a ‘Tiger’ on her (Thanks, Urbandictionary =D).  A slowly expanding stream of mistresses is out of the woodwork, we appear to be up to number 3 or 4 or something like that, who can count at this point. I …

This could be the next ‘James Bond’ flick: Columbian Model becomes drug queenpin

CNN has a big story on a former Colombian beauty queen who is now on the run as international authorities have begun rounding up her co-conspirators in an alleged drug ring with cartel ties.  I tell you this kind of stuff is right out of James Bond, but I doubt this girl is going to …
