1. Nintendo has sent a 'Cease and Desist' letter to indie porn site SuicideGirls, claiming an infringement on their intellectual property. Why? Because one of the members lists a couple Nintendo video games on his profile as 'favourites'. Yes, they really have nothing better to do, it seems. Sean Suicide, founder of the site, is quoted as saying "I enjoy an ice cold coca cola on a hot day. Do you think Coca Cola is going to sue me for posting that?" So, a big "Get A Fuckin' Life" goes out to the Ninnies at Nintendo.
2. A couple of weeks ago, following the last presidential debate, an LJ'er said some rather inflammatory things about G.W. Bush in a public post, done satirically. Apparently, some other LJ'er didn't think it was funny, though, because they reported her to the government, and the Secret Service showed up to question her. The incident went smoothly, actually, it took them all of ten minutes to decide that she is not a threat to national security, but the point is that this is FUCKED. Does the government have nothing better to do than this? Perhaps more importantly, to the unknown 'informant': FUCK YOU. Ever heard of free speech? Dissenting opinions ARE allowed in this country, and I'm not talking in fenced-off, away from the area 'speech zones' either. And, no, I'm not blaming Bush for this one; there's more to the government than the President. Tolerance, people. Freedom means freedom for everybody, and that means that sometimes, you have to put up with something you may not like. I don't understand why this is so hard to grasp...but plenty of people go out of their way to tell you what you can and can't see/watch/say/do. They suck, and that's bad.
3. I just nailed my bad knee against the desk, and it hurts so bad I'm holding back tears...holy fuck, this sucks...
On a good note, the clouds parted enough to show Erik the lunar eclipse.
