Evidence that the younger generation is a lost cause

Alright, so I lied. This is not awesome; this is painful and just wrong.

Why why why why!!

What hell was soon-to-be ex-Mr-Madonna thinking when he directed this?

Of course lesson here is, I didn't have to watch it. Serves me right, really.

Wtf am I going on about?

Trailer for Sherlock, the latest atrocity.

Creepy news for the day

Christianity and the US military. Er, yea I have been hearing about this a lot. Surely, military and governing bodies should always be secular?

And they said non-religious soldiers is what made the world go wrong in past wars.

Does it sound like pseudo-science?

For shame, poor guy is threatened with legal action for questioning whether certain issues have a scientific basis?

The issue in question is about Simon Singh and how he is being sued by the British Chiropractic Association.

Quote by Simon Singh:

"It has been a stressful and frustrating twelve months since I published my article on chiropractors and their attempts to treat children with conditions such as asthma. The British Chiropractic Association's decision to sue me for libel has been an enormous drain on my time and energy. However, the support that I have received from family, friends, readers, bloggers, scientists, journalists and those who care about free speech has been incredible, and it has played a crucial role in my decision to continue defending my article and fighting the libel action."

Wonder if the Pirate Party will win

No wonder I have not checked the news for a few days. When I do, I come across stuff like this: Foreign Affairs As The New Copyright Law.

It's about US and their whole piracy yabba dabba crap.
