Re: Blind man tased by British police: cane a samurai sword

Maybe they saw Zatoichi? Sure, it sounds stupid, but a lot of the overreaction to martial arts weapons threats might come from their portrayal in movies. Not to make light of it, but if the cops weren't thinking, just reacting, they might jump if they saw what they thought was a sword-cane and someo...

Re: Amanda Todd Coverage

Come to think of it... in all the cases of bullying suicides in the news the past few years, there hasn't been much focus at all on the actual bullies, just bullying in the abstract and a kind of culture of victimhood. This is could be reasonable since most stories break for only one day or two and ...

Re: Amanda Todd Coverage

..... People stop bullying when they leave school because they enter a system that doesn't encourage it. Yes, there are obvious exceptions, but they are just that. Schools, like prisons, exist in some kind of microcosm where the rules of society make no fucking sense. And that would be... where exa...

Amanda Todd Coverage

Not sure where the Amanda Todd tragedy belongs; News and Politics or Science, Logic and Morality. Victims of bullying have been making the headlines on and off the last few years and this instance really seems to have hit a genuine popular nerve. The topic crosses a few lines; - Will bullying become...

@ Destructionator XIII Silly question, but would the mass of the objects creating the Lagrange points affect point size? That never seems to be covered in Lagrange point entries on the internet.

Ah, so where are all the illegal Anglo-Saxon immigrants going to go after they're booted from American Indian lands?

Re: Ancient Olympic Museum robbed

According to this AFP followup , three clay items were smashed and the thieves were asking for gold wreaths and a stamp collection, items held at different museums. Doesn't look like an 'honour' theft to protect antiquities, just a smash and grab. The thieves may not even have buyers lined up, which...

Brock, America's had one of the most shortsighted, Murphy-ignorant governments in the developed world since the 1980s. We've systematically, repeatedly done things to give power and control to the rich and soulless on the one hand and the ignorant and mean-spirited on the other. Our economic agenda...

Re: Ron Paul introduces bill to repeal NDAA

Um... so let me clarify, is this a repeal of the NDAA section 1021 forever, or just for one year? Forever; once its repealed the section would have to be reintroduced in the next year's NDAA or some other bill. NDAAs are passed annually to cover the main defense budget for the fiscal year, and a br...
