USA to Confiscate iPODs and Computers at Border

MUSIC fans might soon have their iPods searched by Customs officers at airport checks and face jail if a large amount of pirated music is found on them. The push for the unprecedented searches of travellers’ laptops and MP3 players has been revealed in a leaked discussion paper relating to a treaty being negotiated by the Federal Government. It suggests criminal sanctions for infringements on a commercial scale. That meant innocent pop and rock fans with huge song libraries could unwittingly be hit with jail for commercial piracy, according to Internet Industry Association chief executive Peter Coroneos.

Stupid Names for Kids

A nine-year-old girl whose parents named her Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii was put into court guardianship in New Zealand so that her name could be changed.


In his written ruling, he said names such as Stallion, Yeah Detroit, Fish and Chips, Twisty Poi, Keenan Got Lucy and Sex Fruit were prohibited by registration officials. Others that were permitted included twins called Benson and Hedges, other children called Midnight Chardonnay, Number 16 Bus Shelter and, the judge added, “tragically, Violence”.

Edgar Mitchell on Radio: UFO and Aliens are real

Listen to the interview here. It would be so cool if real!!

Edgar Mitchell says there IS life in the Universe.

He says we have been visited, and that UFOs have been covered up by the government for a long time.

He says he's been inside military circles and they know we've been visited and talk about it behind closed doors.

There is quite a bit of contact going on.

The Roswell crash was real.

Not all UFOs are of ET origin. Some are home-grown. But some are ET crafts.

He's not concerned about his safety talking about it openly anymore.

Alien intent is not hostile.

Some others involved in the Moon landing also know the truth.

More King of Kong Drama

The director, Seth Gordon, is hard at work at a screenplay for The King
of Kong, which he will then sell to have a fictional movie made. Or, as
I am saying, a second fictional movie, but one where he can see 100% of
the profits of the picture without having to cut in any of the people
whose lives he just took a galactic dump on. Let me be clear: he fucked
these people. He couldn't have fucked them worse than if he strapped
them across a air-hockey table and sodomized them with a Wico Command
Control Joystick. He interviewed them, had them retrieve archival
footage and materials going back decades, recorded them at their homes,
their places of work, and at events that they put up at their own
expense and time, and then he painted them in clown makeup and threw
pies at them for an hour and 19 minutes.

And by doing this, he fucked me, too. Doors that were open to me and my
production are slammed shut, people who would have been interviewed by
me freely and happily are now rightfully suspicious, and there are
places I can no longer hope to go. Maybe, just maybe after I am deep in
my production and I show people footage and where I'm going with it I
might get some folks to open up, but the damage is pretty goddamn
severe. A documentary that rips entire groups of good-hearted people as
shadowy, conniving scumbags with razor-thin morality hurts the scene
being portrayed and hurts the people themselves. All this effort, just
to turn reality into a faked up drama worthy of a dime store pulp. Yes,
I am saying the movie is so bad that it has actually sucked my future
movie into darkness as well.

Steve Wiebe was the Champion for almost 3 Years

The events portrayed in the "King of Kong" movie generally took place between June 30, 2003 and April 9, 2006. During that time period Steve Wiebe was Twin Galaxies' official Donkey Kong World Champion from June 30, 2003 until January 30, 2006 - a period of 943 days. His reign as the champion was due to his 947,200 score followed by his 985,600 score achieved at Funspot. There was one two-day period occurring around the time of the Funspot 2005 event, during which Billy Mitchell was listed in the top spot, but Mitchell's reign lasted only 48 hours, as explained below.

American kids, dumber than dirt - Ouch

Warning: The next generation might just be the biggest pile of idiots in U.S. history

It is, in short, nothing less than a tidal wave of dumb, with once-passionate, increasingly exasperated teachers like my friend nearly powerless to stop it. The worst part: It's not the kids' fault. They're merely the victims of a horribly failed educational system.

Then our discussion often turns to the meat of it, the bigger picture, the ugly and unavoidable truism about the lack of need among the government and the power elite in this nation to create a truly effective educational system, one that actually generates intelligent, thoughtful, articulate citizens.

Hell, why should they? After all, the dumber the populace, the easier it is to rule and control and launch unwinnable wars and pass laws telling them that sex is bad and TV is good and God knows all, so just pipe down and eat your Taco Bell Double-Supremo Burrito and be glad we don't arrest you for posting dirty pictures on your cute little blog.
