Truck nuts swing onto US freedom of speech agenda

Dave Turner

Don't give them any ideas

The next thing you know, someone will be picketing Warner Brothers and Disney demanding that Porky and Donald don pants as it's obscene they're running around pantless.

Obama drops Twitter bombs on debt-ceiling foes

Dave Turner


That kind of thing worked so well for Nixon didn't it. Although if it would get that incompetent fool to resign and we could get an adult in the White House, from either party - if there are any, then hell yes go for it.

Beeb flogs Doctor Who episodes via Facebook

Dave Turner

All the fans have never heard of BitTorrent?

Why would anybody even use facebook to buy a single thing to begin with? I've seen just about every episode of Dr Who available on The Pirate Bay so why would I bother with FB if I wanted to see old episodes?

Hell, BBC America runs them in the afternoons here anyway.

Obama wants to wring fat dollar from mobile operators

Dave Turner

And so it goes...

Business as usual. Wonderful. We overpay now for a convenience that goes down in an earthquake or with sunspots and now we're going to get charged more because Obama needs the cash? He really can't be that stupid to think that the company isn't just going to pass the increase on to the consumers.

Ah well, pas the lighter fluid. Rome is burning and I don't know how to play the fiddle.

Poor Tim. He went to an audition and didn't get the part because his candidate won. Boo hoo.

Home Office preps fudgetastic ISP data rules

Dave Turner

Who thought up this policy?

Were the BOFH and PFY bored after too many pints at the pub to come up with something so convoluted?

Grand Theft Auto reportedly inspires teen rampage

Dave Turner

Emulation my ass

My god, can you imagine if they were playing Leisure Suit Larry or any Hentai game and decided to emulate that? The horror...

San Franciscans prep monument to US prez

Thumb Down

There they go again...

While it might be funny to do so, it's going to open a whole can of worms that I don't think they want to open.

Should McCain win in November and be a disaster are we then going to name a failed home for the aged after him? And should Obama win and be a disaster do we name an urban blighted slum after him?

Funny joke over a few beers, but don't let it go further for the sake of future presidents.

Malaysian woman jailed for worshipping teapot

The IT angle

The only possible IT angle is if you can look it up online to find out when the teapot has tea in it so you know if you can get a cup or have to wait - similar to the old coffee pot monitor at MIT I believe?
