the death links

My own observations on the "liberal agenda" pertaining to death.
Just starts to sound a bit strange.
  • Pro-Choice: So its ok to kill unborn babies
  • Pro Assisted Suicide: So its ok to kill old people
  • Against Capital Punishment: So it not ok to kill death row inmates
  • Against shortening the stay for a stray pets: So its not ok to kill stray pets sooner

If your smart and do well on tests your 3x less likely to commit suicide. Now, of course this doesn't prove causality, but I'd like to believe its true.

World has had a drought of decent links recently

Careful what you code apparently. I wish the government fight to pass laws to protect my specific business model.

links to make you laugh or cry. Hard to tell sometimes.

Borat incites a near riot at a rodeo in North Carolina
"After telling the crowd he supported America’s war on terrorism, he said, “I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq, down to the lizards ... And may George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq.” He then sang a garbled version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Some snippets from Barbara Walters interview with Bush. The article contain some
nice quotes.

"Walters: But was it worth it if there were no weapons of mass destruction? Now that we know that that was wrong? Was it worth it?
"Bush: Oh, absolutely."

"Saddam Hussein is a man who told the world he wouldn't have weapons of mass destruction, but he's got them." -- Bush, Nov. 3, 2002.

This article raises an interesting question about Google and other search engines. If Google
legally makes money be scrapping public web sites and presenting the results, can't someone
just scrape Google and do the same thing?

today's links

All of you know about the recent tsunami in SE asia and its mass devistation. But what you might not know is the biggest ever recorded was in 1958, where the wave reached 1,700 feet high. Thats a mighty wave!
http://www.wonderquest.com/tsunami-highest.htm



What gets even more incredible is the danger of La Palma:

"If the Cumbre Vieja were to collapse as one single block it would create a giant mega-tsunami with an initial wave height of 650 metres and a wavelength of 30-40 kilometres travelling westwards across the Atlantic with speeds up to 720 kilometres an hour towards America."

You might remember Crossfire's Tucker Carlson (bowtie guy) from the infamous Jon Stewart interview. Apparently they are not renewing his contract according to Jonathan Klein chief executive of CNN's U.S. network. Klein went on to say the following...
