Hulu's Hollywood overlords force Boxee block


Lets ENCOURAGE Piracy!!!

Huzzah! Three cheers for the Internet; the slayer of poverty everywhere!

US spooks see Sadville as potential terrorist paradise

Thumb Down


This should be good.

Cyber-jiihadists in Sadville detonating their way to martyrdom by programing flying penises to terrorize the furry/bdsm/(insert whatever sexual deviant group here) communities.

I would ask the author to provide the name of their source in the CIA, so I can begin the letter campaign to have those at the CIA responsible for this Act of Ultimate Boobery sacked... unbelievable the ways they find to spend my tax dollars.
