M240 vs M134

Oh my!

Where can I get one?

Nintendo to Recall Wii Straps

Click on the link above, and gaze upon massive stupidity. It's a picture of a broken 37-inch LCD screen. It's bleeding. Why? Because its owner has a Wii. In case you haven't seen the Wii controllers, they can be waved around in the air to create action on the screen when playing games. According to this article:
Baker cracked her LCD screen during a particularly spirited round of Wii bowling after snapping the controller's wrist strap and sending it into her flat-screen TV.
So, because people are STUPID, Nintendo is recalling the controller wrist straps.

Know your enemy

30 rules to live by for wanna-be Taliban punks.

Here's a few that caught my eye:
19) Mujahideen are not allowed to take young boys with no facial hair onto the battlefield or into their private quarters.
hmmm, could we ask Lawrence of Arabia about this one, eh?
24) It is forbidden to work as a teacher under the current puppet regime, because this strengthens the system of the infidels. True Muslims should apply to study with a religiously trained teacher and study in a Mosque or similar institution. Textbooks must come from the period of the Jihad or from the Taliban regime.
Heaven forbid Afghan kids learn about things like reading, writing and 'rithmatic. Come to think of it, Heaven forbid that Texas kids learn about stuff like that...
25) Anyone who works as a teacher for the current puppet regime must recieve a warning. If he nevertheless refuses to give up his job, he must be beaten. If the teacher still continues to instruct contrary to the principles of Islam, the district commander or a group leader must kill him.
And again, coming soon to a school near you! Especially if you live in England...

The most honest Congress in History

Well, I guess we'll soon see if Pelosi follows through on her claims to wanting to clean up corruption in DC, won't we??

People ask what's wrong with our government? Well, for starters, crooks seem to find a home there. I'd like to say this kind of thing only happens in NOLA, but I think we all know better.

Guilty pleas by aides and associates who admitted to bribing the congressman and the revelation in court documents that FBI agents had found $90,000 in marked bills stuffed into Jefferson's freezer had put the scent of blood in political waters.

But really, can you concieve that a Republican Congressman would be re-elected under similar circumstances? I seem to recall Repubicans running their crooks out of office lately - ala Foley and Duke Cunningham.

However, if you're a minority and a Democrat, then apparently that kind of stuff is ok. There's enough blame to go around to the Republicans, too - good ole Denny Hastert jumped all over the FBI for raiding Jefferson's offices; just one more nail in the Republican election of '06.

Don't Shoot Your Eye Out!

Those guys at Office Max have way too much time on their hands.

The best I could do was to shoot my eye out twice.
