Better late than never

Proposition 8 was a proposal to amend the Constitution of California to prohibit same-sex marriages. Here's a clip done by some of Hollywood's favourites about it.

Life as a pirate

Here's an interesting story about a guy who got a job playing Captain Jack Sparrow at Disneyland. The thing is though, that he was really into playing Jack in his spare time.

Disney warned us we were going to have a lot of horny women coming on to us. They were also worried about girls. I heard Disneyland had an Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. She was very flirtatious, and they finally pulled her because men found her too sexually arousing and were acting out.

There's a lot of stories of how Nazi Disney can be and this is no exception. Interesting stuff.

That's modern detective work

This (here) is a story about a guy who found coded messages from his grandfather during WWII and, thanks to the generosity/boredom of the Internet, can now read the messages.

But it would be so boring

Justice Kirby, in all his awesome and fairness-driven braininess thinks that Australia should have a 'court TV channel' to ease the public oversight.

Your Score: Akkadian

You scored

You are Akkadian, a blend of the incomprehensible symbols of the Sumerians with the unwritable sounds of the early Semitic peoples. However, the writing just doesn't suit the words and doesn't represent everything needed, so you end up a schizoid mess. Invented in Babylon, you're probably to blame for that tower story. However, crazy as you are, you're much loved and appreciated, and remain actively in use by records keepers long after schools have switched to other languages.

What Sony really needs to do

There's a couple of people who read this who may not know that Sony's latest games console, the PlayStation 3 is soundly outselling Microsoft's rival, the Xbox 360, however, more importantly, Nintendo's (totally aweseome*) Wii is still outselling the PlayStation 5 to 1. Thus, Dueling Analogs proposes an appropriate solution.

* If you haven't yet heard why it's so awesome, just Google "wii reviews" & check out The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess demo at E3

Dr. Phil calls the Church of Scientology

It's a prank call with a soundboard...but it's still hilarious.

A sad story

I've already posted about Google's Street View, and there's already a site of the 'Top 15 Google Street View Sightings' with humorous pictures of people without heads and committing crimes. But at number 6 is a picture of a homeless man with his dog who is identified on the site as 'Cornelius' and 'Boo Boo'.

Just to show the permanence of the Internet, there is a linked story of how Cornelius, apparently well known in San Jose for his "friendly nature", was killed defending his dog from another homeless man a little over a month ago.
