Aussie school bans Harry Potter book
Oh, this is just typical. I suppose the Bible is any less violent than a Harry Potter book? Yeah, right. People like this are notoriously selective about the kinds of behavior they try to protect everyone from. For example, the Bible is chock-full of things that these self-appointed moralists would normally condemn. If you don’t believe me, click here for a lovely eye-opener. Fun!
Technology gets antisocial
The fact that men let gadgets take priority over their loved ones is just another indication of the unhealthy grip that technology has on people. Some people just can’t resist the allure of the gadget (or virtual world, chat room, videogame, etc.), and it shows a complete lack of self-control. So you’d rather play with your Palm Pilot than your girlfriend, eh? Then you don’t deserve a girlfriend, buddy. You obviously prefer your Palm to a person, in more ways than one.
Americans Favor Cars Over Kids
Is anyone really surprised by this? Americans (and many others around the world) are absolutely OBSESSED with their cars. They worship them. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that most people don’t even own their cars — their cars own THEM. Some peoples’ lives completely revolve around their cars…and for others, their greatest goal in life is to own a certain kind of car. Isn’t that sad? It’s sheer materialism, and expensive materialism at that. A lot of people are willing to go $30,000 in debt just own an SUV! It’s incredible. And then this study is published, revealing something even more insidious: Americans value their cars more than their own children. You people ought to be embarrassed and ashamed.
Study Finds TV Dining Means Less Fruit, More Pizza
Is anyone surprised at this? Television is so bad for us in so many ways, and this is just one item on a long, long list.
“Jackass” Mimic Injured
Call me cruel, but I really don’t have much sympathy for stupid people…and this kid is irretrievably stupid. He got exactly what he was asking for. Maybe the show ought to be renamed to “Dumbass”.
NY Stores Selling Candy Recalled Over Mad Cow Fears
Isn’t this mad cow thing just fascinating to watch? Not only is it interesting to see how many foods may be affected by these tainted cow products, but it’s also somewhat entertaining (to sickos like me, at least) to watch people and companies become mad cattle themselves, panicking and stampeding at even the slightest suggestion of something wrong. But hey, wouldn’t this make a cool product in itself? Mad Cow Candy! Mooo! MooOOooOOo!!
”Titanic” Craze Grips Afghans, Taliban Not Amused
Of all the things to get upset about, a haircut seems hardly worth the trouble. Isn’t it amazing what religions can come up with in order to control peoples’ behavior? Besides, these people are three years late with this haircut…they ought to be emulating Ricky Martin or some other mindless pop icon.
Parents Starved Children ‘On God’s Orders’
Another charming story from the world of born-again religious nutballs. Would a loving, caring God really ask a man to starve his children? It doesn’t matter what version of God you believe in… Any voice telling you to torture your kids is NOT God. (How do I know? Because God told me. Heh.)
Bush Sings And Claps As He Worships at Black Church
Oh, this is rich. This is an act of pure political whoredom if ever I saw one. Nice try, Shrub…you’re not fooling anyone.
Beefy Male Centerfolds Mirror Muscle Obsession
Male centerfolds have a muscle obsession? Well, no shit. What a revelation!
Britney’s F-Words: Oops!…I’m a Napster Hit
Isn’t this just hysterical? I was a bit disappointed, though…I was expecting her to really let lose, but she just says “fuck” and “shit” a couple of times. She does sound like a completely spoiled little tart, though, which is kinda fun to hear. A perfect role model for millions of teenage girls who worship her, oh yes.
Crocodile Snaps Pet Dog From River Bank
I’m sorry, but this just cracks me up. I know, I’m a sick bastard…but can’t you just visualize this happening? It sounds like an outtake from “A Fish Called Wanda”. This is Nature in action, folks! Ain’t it grand??
Diablo 2 hacker on killing spree!
Wow… All this fuss about VIRTUAL PEOPLE. Turn off the computer and go outside once in a while, dorks! Try interacting with REAL people for a change. Jeezus. Is anyone else out there bothered by the fact that so many people spend countless hours in front of their computers leading fantasy lives with fantasy people? Sure, we all have our forms of escapism…but this is truly disturbing.
