Once Upon A Time my Mum had to give a professional speech in San Francisco and she opened it by talking about how nostalgic she felt finally seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, since it would've been the last thing her great-great-whatever grandfather saw just before he emigrated to Australia and tl;dr don't tell a roomful of Americans your ancestor left their country to seek a better life elsewhere if you want them to bond with you.

I recently found out that there are ppl who are ghost writers for sex scenes in books, and I am amazed.

It just makes me realize again how ridiculous it is to try and pin down a highschooler to a career path. What 17 yro knows ghost writing sex scenes for novels is a legit job

The law only prohibits use "knowingly and for profit", so unfortunately for my rebellious spirit, it is actually quite legal to use Smokey for anticapitalist messaging (as intellectual works produced by the Department of Agriculture are public domain).

This was the best crime I could come up with.

Smokey Bear is not copyrighted and is not trademarked, but is instead protected under his own unique intellectual property law 18 USC s. 711. This means that fair use doctrine doesn't apply to him. And unlike any other IP law to my knowledge, this is the only one that is enforced by criminal law rather than civil law.

So like, what the fuck eh?

There is always a Steam update but it never gets better

Welp, ThinkGeek is shutting down.

That... Sure would have made me sad in a very different era of our culture.

BART station parking lots were missing at least a quarter of their usual traffic this morning.

Everyone must be calling out sick with -lost-itis...

I can't stop reading the www.ecocoin.com white paper. Honestly how are we supposed to satirize corporate tech bros when they roast themselves so comprehensively with their own ideas like this

If this weren't real it would truly be the Mona Lisa of tech satire

Perhaps you would consider reading my book where the bad guys aren't all that bad -- they just live in an underground crypt raising the dead and making plans for world-domination they'll never enact.

It also has a pet zombie, a vitriolic friendship, and a terribly posh historian who's delighted to be here

Straight Pride Parade is a backdoor for the group Resist Marxism which has ties to nearly every far-right group that's engaged in street fighting in the past 3 years. Straight Pride is a beard for violence. itsgoingdown.org/this-week-in-

the first time we heard the phrase "student lunch debt"we should have flipped cars over and burned them at the idea that children could incur debt to eat, but we didn't so now news stories about it are used to reify capitalist fables and it's just normal
