  1. Just saying this: News around the world gets here, you just have to look for it or pay attention to the news. Mainly the latter. You mean the former? Lately Charley Sheen has gotten more air time then the Libyan situation and Japan. By the way, I thank Voltaire for the completely relevant and appropriate quote, which seems to just resonate with the American attitude: "It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets." Charley Sheen was getting a lot of air time before the earthquake in Japan. However, after the earthquake, I've barely heard anything about him. Japan is all over the news right now.

    Your dream job?

    I'd like to test mattresses. I imagine I would go to work and sleep on the latest mattress for my 8-hour shift...then collect my pay and go home fully rested.
  3. That basically just destroyed whatever little faith in humanity I had left... Apparently the explosion was real but it didn't affect the reactor in any way. Wow, America really does hold a grudge? I can't imagine British people for example having that kind of reaction at all in the case of a massive disaster in Germany. Also, some real idiots on there, one seemed to think Japan started WW2. I didn't lose my faith in humanity, just America. On this whole topic of where earthquakes hit and the like, in a way it's lucky the quake hit Japan and not another country. Japan is one of, if not the most prepared country for earthquakes on the planet. An earthquake of this magnitude would have levelled most other countries well before the tsunami struck. I'm massively surprised just how low the death count is so far. There were about 60 posts in that image. The US population is over 300,000,000. So, after seeing what .00002% of the population has to say, you've already lost faith in America? And what about the people who didn't post? There could be a lot more than just 60 people, but I see what you're getting. I'm sure there are a lot more than 60 Americans who feel that way. The point is, we don't know what that number is. We can't go basing our opinions of an entire country off of what 60 random people post on Facebook. If I find 61 American Facebook posts that offer prayers and condolences to the Japanese people, would that suddenly make a difference?

  5. I have an old Runescape pictures website that was originally on Geocities. I moved it over to my new site but left everything intact. You can find it at --> http://www.pixeloaded.com/runescrap
  6. Well obviously. The point most people are bringing up here is that, while significant, wouldn't be very effective even if it were implemented. Some people here seemed to be interpreting the bill as giving the president power to shut down all content hosted around the world, whether it's even possible or not.
  7. I read another article that talks about this same bill. It says the bill would only give the president the power to shut down parts of the Internet hosted in the US. You can read it here: http://insidetech.monster.com/news/articles/8693-new-bill-would-give-us-president-power-to-kill-some-or-all-of-the-internet
  8. It's 4 deaths with Ed McMahon. :shock:
  9. Well, why does their life get way more coverage than a normal person's life? I don't see why it would be any different for their death.
  10. Luckily, I've only been in one accident while I was driving. My car had been randomly "jerking" slightly to the side while driving. I'd be driving along just fine and all of a sudden the car would pull to the left and I'd have to adjust it back to where it was. This had been going on for a few days and I even had an appointment to get it fixed the very day of the accident. Looking back, I probably should have just stopped using the car until I could get it fixed, but the problem was minor enough that I thought I could keep driving that day. On to the accident. I was driving home from school on a somewhat icy, snowy day. The car did the "jerk" to the left thing on a patch of ice and I did a 180 spin across 3 lanes of traffic, and ended up in a left turn lane facing oncoming traffic. Luckily, there were no other cars directly to the side of me and, since I ended up in a turning lane, I was out of the direct path of traffic. It could have been much worse.

    Bird Problems.

    Train your dogs to catch and eat birds. Then, when you come out to feed them, they'll be getting a double meal.
  12. It seems like there's some important information missing from the story. What initially caused officials to decide she wasn't intelligent enough? Was she acting like a raving lunatic or something? I know she took an IQ test, but what prompted the test in the first place?
  13. It looks great but I can't help having a little skepticism at this point. I wonder how it differentiates between each player of a game when everyone is sitting/standing close to each other like in the first video.
  14. idk, those young fishies are making me uncomfortable. I wish we could see what this "obscene material" was so we could accurately judge the creepiness. [/hide] Even if the stuff he was looking at was the absolute worst CP has to offer, I still don't think he should have gotten jail time since the images were drawn. I disagree, if its just nudity of drawn children then no objection; but there are definetely ways in which such content could be obscene to the point I would consider it legitamately bannable. If its something with a very good story line I would consider it art; but if we put blanket protection on drawn cp I can already sense someone drawing magazines of it to sell to pedophiles. I can certainly see your side of it. It's creepy to think that anyone would want to look at that stuff. But the way I see it is, the brain of a pedophile is "wired" that way. They're not going to stop thinking about children in that way just because they can't legally get their hands on that type of pornography. I'd much rather have a pedophile get his jollies from a bunch of drawn images than the real thing. Chances are, a true pedophile would eventually go for the real thing anyway, but until they actually do something to hurt another person, I don't see why they should be considered a criminal. If the authorities had the ability to read a persons mind, would it be going too far to arrest someone just for having unclean thoughts about a child? The drawn images are just thoughts put down on paper.
