Socialism has gone too far

Vietnam to offer movies about sex on Internet:

The straight-laced government of communist-run Vietnam, where pornographic Web sites are banned, plans to offer downloadable movies on an Internet site to educate married couples about healthy sex, a newspaper said on Thursday.

The official English-language Vietnam News quoted Khuat Thu Hong, Deputy Director of the Institute for Social Development, as saying “an orthodox sex Web site” would help couples learn more about “healthy sexual intercourse”.

Hong cited cases of married couples who had not had sex for a year, a rising divorce rate and rampant prostitution as reasons to publicise more information about sex.

Government sponsored porn. *shudders*

Awesome article in The Onion

July 19, 2006

I don’t usually post from The Onion, but this is awesome:

There’s No Way I’m Saving That Guy

By Jesus Christ

All right. I realize I am supposed to be all-merciful, universally loving, the Light and the Way and everything, but even a divine avatar of the Supreme Being’s loving grace has His limits. I know I’ve said many times that there is always room for one more—even the lowliest—at the table of the Lord, but even so, there is just no freaking way I’m redeeming this S.O.B.

I don’t want to name names, but his initials are Gus Feigert, owner-operator of Fei gert Automotive down on Seybold Road, by the gas station. There, I said it. And you know what? I don’t care. I’m glad I said his name. If he’s going to suffer damnation for all eternity—which, I assure you, he most certainly is—then I don’t see how much more damage revealing his identity during his brief time on Earth is going to cause the bastard in the long run.

The guy is a jerk.

Ha!

Top Free Anniversary

July 7, 2006

Top Free 7 anniversary

About 60 men and women appeared topless at Cobbs Hill Park Friday, to commemorate an event there 20 years ago which created quite a stir, and resulted in a court ruling that said barring women from going topless in public–but not men–was unconstitutional.

It’s just a shame that so few women take advantage of this hard won civil right. A right that’s not exercised is a right lost; you should all take your tops off whenever you’re in NY.

Blackbeard’s ship found!:

American marine archaeologists believe they have found the wreck of a ship which belonged to the pirate Blackbeard.

Blackbeard’s ship and a new Pirates of the Carribean movie in the same week? The Flying Spaghetti Monster is surely smiling.

Operation removes lightbulb from anus

June 30, 2006

There’s nothing I can possibly say that could either add or detract from that headline.

But wait, it gets better on its own:

Mohammad, who is serving a four-year sentence for making liquor, prohibited for Muslims, said he was shocked when he was first told the cause of his discomfort. He swears he didn’t know the bulb was there.

Oh, and here’s the photo of the x-ray:

Democracy owes it’s existence to pirates!

June 29, 2006

Pirates pursued democracy, helped American colonies survive

Pirates practiced the same egalitarian principles as the Founding Fathers and displayed pioneering spirit in exploring new territory and meeting the native peoples, said Jason Acosta, who did the research for his thesis in history at the University of Florida.

Like the American revolutionaries, pirates developed three branches of government with checks and balances. The ship captain was elected, just as the U.S. president; the pirate assembly was comparable to Congress; and the quartermaster resembled a judge in settling shipmate disputes and preventing the captain from overstepping his authority, he said.

Colonists and pirates also were alike in emphasizing written laws, democratic representation and due process, Acosta said. All crew members were allowed to vote, ship charters had to be signed by every man on board, and anyone who lost an eye or a leg was compensated financially, he said.

These ideals grew out of both groups’ frustration at being mistreated by their leaders; the British forced the colonists to quarter troops and pay taxes, and captains on merchant ships beat their shipmen, starved them and paid less than promised, Acosta said.

“It’s no wonder that many sailors seized the opportunity to jump ship and search for a better way of life, namely piracy, which offered better food, shorter work shifts and the power of the crew in decision-making,” he said.

Shiver me timbers, that’s awesome.

Somewhere high above us, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is smiling.
