...at least the mpaa seems to think so. read on to hear the motion picture association of america crying about how text messaging is killing their industry. why you might ask? because with text messaging people can find out quickly the new movies are shit and not go, often even during their opening weekends. so i'm starting a poll, how long before sending a text message about a movie is declared a terrorist act?

why haven't we thought of this...where's wilfred?

so you all know about the big blackout. but don't fret it wasn't a terrorist act, nor msblaster that caused this horrible event. no it was just inept, overpaid electric companies not bothering to keep up with demand. but here's the best part, graphs from the blackout, showing power usage in new york state, and the nj/md/pa etc. region. check out the 4pm (1600) region of the graph. you can see these live, here.

too bad there's no fines for stupidity....

...or this lady could clear up the deficit. wanna see what's wrong with our schools? how about this former school teacher who went into iraq before the war to act as a "human shield" against the unjust war. too bad we didn't bomb where-ever she was "human shielding." to quote the article: "If Fippinger does not pay, the fine may increase, and the money will be drawn from her retirement paycheck, her Social Security check or any of her assets, officials said." HAHAHAH, that's great, not only will they put her in jail for not paying, but they'll garnish her assets while she's in jail to pay the fines. so i guess techincally that is a stupid fine... who knew?

parents at fault....no way!

so here is a political cartoon that apparently ran in a lot of newspapers recently. and here is the penny-arcade response. i don't really think i have to comment on this one (PA does, and it's quite right) other than saying, if you think the first one makes sense or you drew it, you need to start playing in traffic more.

going to california...
