I can laugh now. I wasn't laughing then. A senile president in office is scary. Americans really bought what Reagan was selling, and some still do. Teflon Ronnie. Big tax cuts for the fat cats. Ketchup is a vegetable for school lunches. Iran-Contra. On the bright side, despite two terms in office, Dubya will not inspire such sickening nostalgia among conservatives.
Some twits rent 3 floors and get to rename an iconic building? Perhaps we should rename Harrad's 'Macy's'. The Willies can shove off.
This is nonsense, hopefully nonsense that will cost some politicians their jobs.
Breaking news: Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
Send the phishes to sleep with Luca Brasi:P
Facebook, the MMORPG.
Youtube is selling out. Corporate censorship will marginalize, perhaps even eliminate non-corporate contributions to the site.
Fight while you can, before a once-great site jumps the shark.
A musical message of affirmation from Don Was to the Iranian people, particularly those being persecuted by the Iranian government and religious authorities.
The new 'Plan 9 from Outer Space'. The reviews are so bad, they're hilarious.
Anybody who thumbs this up should keep an eye out for a padded van driven by guys in white wielding butterfly nets and syringes of thorazine:P
A blog about bonobos living at the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary. Bonobos are genetically very similar to humans. They are intelligent, interesting and mysterious, but also quite endangered. Hopefully, this blog and others like it will generate more public interest in saving these amazing characters.
From the page: "Imagine a relative who thinks sex is like a handshake. Who organises orgies with the neighbours, doesn't mind if their partner sleeps around, and firmly believes females should be in charge of everything. Imagine there was a whole tribe of these relatives - crazy yes? But definitely a lot of fun.
Bonobo share 98.7% of our DNA, equal to our more famous cousins, chimpanzees. But unlike chimps, we know hardly anything about them.
Lola ya Bonobo is the only bonobo sanctuary in the world. All the bonobos are orphans, their parents killed for the bushmeat trade. At Lola, the bonobos live in a 30 hectare forest, are visited by over 15,000 Congolese school children every year, and will soon be released into the wild."
