Tim Minchin - Pope Song

Apple and Adobe turn up the idiocy level

Childish hypocritical tantrums from bickering corporations.

Fuck you, both of you.

Adobe has posted a short response to the letter Apple boss Steve Jobs has written about Flash technology.

In it, Adobe said the legal terms Apple imposed on software developers had led it to shift its focus away from Apple.

Mr Jobs used the open letter to defend Apple's decision not to allow Flash on many of the firm's products.

In it he criticised Flash, saying it was not fit for an era of smartphones and touchscreen devices.

Idiot archaeologists claim yet another discovery of Noah's Arc

Oh look! Wood! It *must* be Noah's Arc! The Bible *must* be totally true!

A Chinese Christian filmmaker claims to have found the final resting place of Noah's Ark on Turkey's Mount Ararat.

While news of the find is making headlines around the world, there's one part of the story that Yeung is conspicuously silent about: He is only the latest in a long line of people who claim to have found Noah's Ark. In fact, there have been at least half a dozen others — all of them funded by Christian organizations — who have claimed final, definitive proof of Noah's Ark. So far none of the claims have proven true.

Excavations near Reading show evidence of Boudicca

Evidence found at the Roman site of Silchester could mean it was the site of one of Boudicca's battles.

Professor Michael Fulford said that 13 years of excavations at Calleva had revealed evidence of the first gridded Iron Age town in Britain.

The site also bears the scars of possible early Roman military occupation, and evidence of later, widespread burning and destruction.

This suggests the site could have been destroyed at the hands of Boudicca.

Spain's most celebrated bullfighter learns payback's a bitch

Sorry, but I don't feel any sympathy for practitioners of this barbaric "sport".

The story does contain this bizarrely worded paragraph..

The half-tonne bull caught the famously risk-taking torero in his upper thigh and dug his horn deep by raising his head before flicking the pink-stockinged, sequinned matador up into the air.

Apple in PR mess after Gizmodo editor's home raided by police

Apple has people eying it suspiciously after police raid the home of Jason Chen, editor of Gizmodo, over the iPhone prototype "loss".

Police raided the house of an editor for Gizmodo on Friday and seized computers and other equipment. The raid was part of an investigation into the leak of a prototype iPhone that the site obtained for a blockbuster story last week. Now, a legal expert has raised questions about the legality of the warrant used in the raid.

On Friday, officers from California’s Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team in San Mateo, California, appeared at the home of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen while he was not there and broke open the front door...

...Apple is on the steering committee for the REACT task force that raided Chen’s house. Formed in 1997, REACT is a partnership of 17 local, state and federal agencies tasked with investigating computer- and internet-related crimes.

Is it just me, or are you beginning to dislike Apple a little more every day?

M.I.A Born Free

M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.

Reason 792 to hate the Harper government

Moral paragon and possible war criminal Stephen Harper has pulled another fast one...

The federal government has disclosed for the first time that Canada will not fund abortions in its G8 child and maternal health-care initiative for developing countries.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced late last year that Canada, as the host of the upcoming G8 meeting in June, would champion maternal and child health in developing countries.

But until Monday, no one in the government had disclosed whether abortion would be included in the corresponding programs Canada supports.

International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda said the government would consider funding family planning measures such as contraception, but not abortion under any circumstances.

This is topped by the bullshit statement of the day...

"We're not debating abortion; we're clarifying family planning."

How dumb do they think we are?

Australian restaurant bans "gay dog": Idiots of the Day

An Adelaide restaurant that refused a blind man entry because a waiter thought his guide dog was "gay" has been ordered to apologise and pay compensation...

..."The staff genuinely believed that Nudge was an ordinary pet dog which had been desexed to become a gay dog," the owners said in a statement to South Australia's Equal Opportunity Tribunal.

For a brief shining moment, "the staff" were the dumbest people on the planet. Well done!

Marcus Gee gets a public hard-on over tall buildings

Oooo, they're so...big

Marcus Gee, who single handedly wants Toronto converted into a concrete condo hell festooned with CCTV cameras, now sings the praises of high rises.

Though neighbours still complain about shadow impacts, traffic congestion and other often-imaginary problems with proposed tall buildings, Torontonians are coming to accept the merits of building into the heavens.

Ha, like they're given a choice? Silly neighbours, thinking they still have a say in their own neighbourhoods.

The thicket of downtown high-rises fits perfectly with the drive to promote urban “intensification,” planner-speak for packing people more closely together to save energy and counteract urban sprawl. The Aura project is right on the Yonge subway line, so thousands of people will be able to get around without their cars. It will bring new life to the tatty corner of Yonge and Gerrard and kick-start revitalization of the crummy Yonge Street strip.

Yup, pack 'em in.

To ease the city’s concerns, developer Michael La Brier agreed to set up a five-member panel with leading U.S. and local architects to review the tower’s design. The result is a sleek and handsome building that will cost about half a billion dollars. The tower will stand on a three-storey granite-and-glass podium with high-end stores such as Bed, Bath and Beyond. More than 97 per cent of the condos have been pre-sold, says Mr. La Brier, though if you have $17.5-million in your pocket, there is still a penthouse available.

That a developer can charge such a sum for a condo in Toronto is a sign of confidence in the city and its vibrant downtown.

It's fairly clear what type of people Marcus Gee deems suitable to live in downtown Toronto. The rest of you without "$17.5-million in your pocket", fuck off, move away and quit causing grief for those who wish to remake the city in their own image.

Uninspired and bland as that image may be.

Apple vs Adobe, and customers all get F*cked

Corporations fight it out, and the user is the victim

Adobe is to stop making software tools that allow Apple's iPhone and iPad to use its popular Flash technology.

The decision reverses an earlier pledge in which it said it would help get Flash working on the gadgets.

Flash is very widely used on the web and many sites use it to power animations, media players and other multimedia elements.

Despite this, Apple's products do not support Flash and it has made public statements criticising the technology.

This is the kind of shit I hated Microsoft for.

Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black

Imagine that hundreds of black protesters were to descend upon Washington DC and Northern Virginia, just a few miles from the Capitol and White House, armed with AK-47s, assorted handguns, and ammunition. And imagine that some of these protesters —the black protesters — spoke of the need for political revolution, and possibly even armed conflict in the event that laws they didn’t like were enforced by the government? Would these protester — these black protesters with guns — be seen as brave defenders of the Second Amendment, or would they be viewed by most whites as a danger to the republic? What if they were Arab-Americans?

Republican Sue Lowden: Idiot of the Day

Mohammed causes CNN's balls to shrink

From CNN:

Has 'South Park' gone too far this time?

...have they [South Park] gone too far this time with a depiction of the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit?

No CNN, the ones that have gone too far are the religious bullies issuing death threats. Any group or organization that believes they have the right to kill because they have been criticized have already lost the argument. If you feel the need to demand respect, then you don't deserve any. Respect is earned by deeds, not threats.

The mindless of any religion need to be laughed back to the Dark Ages where they belong.

Won't stop them from being mindless bullies unfortunately, but at least we get to see them for what they are.

Listening to the President of Bolivia makes you stupid

From the "I can't believe that moron just said that" files, comes this parade of idiocy from Evo Morales:

“Baldness that appears to be normal is a disease in Europe, almost all of them are bald, and that is because of the things they eat; while among the indigenous peoples there are no bald people, because we eat other things,” said the 50 year old leader. He also claimed that the presence of homosexual men around the world is a consequence of inadequate nutrition. According to Morales, this is due to eating chicken saturated with feminizing hormones “The chicken that we eat is chock-full of feminine hormones. So, when men eat these chickens, they deviate from themselves as men.” Laughter emerged from the audience.

Constantin Film goes blitzkrieg on Youtube

Some legal idiots at Constantin Film have begun removing Hitler "Downfall" satires on Youtube.


Earlier today, someone attempted to upload a new version surrounding the massive iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD, whatever) news. Unfortunately, as you can see on YouTube, that video has already been removed with the message, “This video contains content from Constantin Film, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.“

Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi: Idiot of the Day

Women who dress provocatively and tempt people into promiscuity are to blame for earthquakes, a leading Iranian hard-line cleric has apparently said.

The prayer leader, Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, says women and girls who "don't dress appropriately" spread "promiscuity in society."

"When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase," he says in a video posted Monday on YouTube, apparently of him leading Friday prayers in Tehran, Iran, last week.

Religious bullies threaten South Park

Childish bullying from a group called, not fully realizing it's not the 9th century anymore.

And who are they trying to kid. If it walks like a threat, and talks like a threat...

Youtube "we are not making threats" video here.

Silly me, I'd just arrest them for making death threats.

The radical Islamic Web site is going after the creators of the TV cartoon series "South Park" after an episode last week included an image of the Prophet Mohammed in disguise., based in New York, was the subject of a CNN investigation last year for its radical rhetoric supporting “jihad” against the West and praising al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Its organizers insist they act within the law and seek to protect Islam.

On Sunday, posted an entry that included a warning to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they risk violent retribution – after the 200th episode last week included a satirical discussion about whether an image of the prophet could be shown. In the end, he is portrayed disguised in a bear suit.

The posting on says: “We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

Invasion Earth 2150 AD

LSD in the garden in bottles

Hardcore fans of The Beatles legend John Lennon uncovered where in the grounds of his Surrey, southern England, home he hid his stash of LSD more than 40 years ago.

Builders digging up the lawn of his old house, Kenwood, came across the remains of a leather holdall containing several large broken glass bottles, The Sun reports.

Legend has it that Lennon buried a large quantity of the drug in his garden in 1967 when The Beatles declared they had given up drugs in favour of transcendental meditation.

But when the band returned from India, John decided he had been a bit hasty and tried to dig it up - but never found it.

Now fans are convinced these bottles contained the missing treasure - though they will never know for sure as the one bottle found intact had a cracked cork, so it was empty.

Freshly Ground Black People: Typo of the Day

An Australian publisher is reprinting 7,000 cookbooks over a recipe for pasta with "salt and freshly ground black people."

Penguin Group Australia's head of publishing, Bob Sessions, acknowledged the proofreader for the Pasta Bible should have picked up the error, but called it nothing more than a "silly mistake."

The "Pasta Bible" recipe for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto was supposed to call for black pepper.

Fucking Hell, that damn Irish blasphemy law

There could perhaps be no better (or worse, depending on your religious inclination) day to open a blasphemous art exhibition than Good Friday. As many Irish Catholics were dutifully attending church, a group of young, well-dressed Dubliners gathered in the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art to view an exhibition inspired by the country's new — and much loathed — antiblasphemy law.

The first artwork to greet the visitors to "Blasphemous" is a grotesque variation on Michelangelo's Pieta, with the Virgin Mary transformed into a malicious giant rat. Next is a multimedia piece called Resur-erection that references the Irish Catholic sex-abuse scandals of recent months and features stop-motion priests and bishops in suspicious scenarios. Another exhibit simply and bluntly declares "F___ Christmas" in baubles and fairy lights. The reaction of gallery-goers on opening day ranged from bemusement to gratitude that at least one venue in Dublin's capital was serving alcohol on the most abstinent of Irish religious holidays. But for curator K. Bear Koss, the objective of the exhibition is very serious: "We want to raise awareness about the new blasphemy law," he says, "and to celebrate the freedoms of discourse that the law seeks to stifle."

Obama orders hospitals to be slightly more human

What's fucked up about this is that he had to step in to stop hospital's scummy behaviour in the first place. Who visits a patient should not be left up to them.

President Obama mandated Thursday that nearly all hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and respect patients' choices about who may make critical health-care decisions for them, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans.

But of course there are some who think it should be otherwise

But opponents of same-sex marriage have called the visitation issue a red herring, arguing that advocates want to provide special rights for gays that other Americans do not have. A spokesman for one group said the president's move was part of a broader effort to appease gays and to undermine the institution of marriage.

Shocking the depts some will go and what they will say when driven by their hatred.

Marines butch it up with new bayonet

Starting next year, Marines can expect to see a replacement for the Vietnam-era M7 bayonet - an upgrade to a weapon that is longer, wider, armor-piercing and therefore more intimidating, according to the Marine overseeing the upgrade.

"This new bayonet causes more psychological as well as physical damage. It is psychologically damaging because of the fear it brings to the minds of our adversaries. It projects a manly-looking, fear-invoking presence," said Maj. Stephan Fernandez, bayonet project officer at Marine Corps Systems Command.

Is that a new manly bayonet or are you just happy to see me?

Liverpool City Council: Idiots of the Day

Should be ban the word "Idiot" so it won't offend the Liverpool City Council?

Council chiefs may ban the word 'obese' because it could offend fat children.

They want to replace it with the phrase 'unhealthy weight'.

Parents and health experts condemned the proposal yesterday as 'preposterous'.

The idea was dreamed up by 90 pupils in the Liverpool Schools' Parliament, a scheme to help children become more interested in politics.

Now Liverpool City Council will formally consider their proposal to drop the word from all local authority schemes aimed at improving children's health.

Yet another place you can't escape ads. Tweet that

Twitter has said it will allow advertising on its site for the first time.

The social networking site said advertisers would be able to buy "Promoted Tweets" that will appear on Twitter's search results pages...

...Initially, Promoted Tweets would only appear in Twitter search results, the company said, and only one Tweet would show up on each search results page.

It is the first toe in the advertising water for the social networking site, which has yet to make a profit and has only just begun to do deals to raise revenue from the high profile service.

It is an approach that the company described as a "stubborn insistence on a slow and thoughtful approach to monetization".

Slow at first maybe, but the flood gates will open.

Another instance of police beating on someone, lying about it, then doing an about face when a video surfaces.

"The charging documents certainly do not appear to be supported by the video...I'm sure it's a stretch to say it's a cover-up," saying it's likely the officer who wrote the documents had a "miscommunication" with officers involved in the incident, who provided information.

They must be inching to make videoing them illegal.

Haggis-flavoured chocolates

From the land that brought you fried Mars bars, a new culinary horror is unleashed.

There is now a new way to tuck into Scotland's national dish, after a firm launched haggis-flavoured chocolates.

Edinburgh-based chocolate maker Nadia Ellingham said people had been a "bit puzzled" by her creation.

The 43-year-old came up with the idea after creating chocolates inspired by chestnut and cranberry stuffing.

Her recipe includes a range of spices used in haggis, such as nutmeg, black pepper and oatmeal, but excludes the offal part of the dish.

Rogers Cable offering free preview of Hunter's Porn - aka Wild TV

Hi, I'm an immense douchebag

The Mighty Chris Bracket (One Man, One Bow, Hundreds of Arrows - Endless Possibilities), garbed in camouflage and face paint, hunts birds with arrows.

He's so brave.

Our beloved cable provider, Rogers, is offering a free preview of "Wild TV (The Hunting & Fishing Network)", which is basically hunter's porn.

The animated gun shots (with added SFX) on their website is a nice subtle touch....

"They're such beautiful animals" says one hunter, standing over the dead body of a deer he has killed. He then warns us the horns "can be dangerous". Thank goodness, cause I know the incidents of vicious gangs of killer deers have been on the increase of late.

It seems to be overweight middle-aged white men (and some women) hunting down defenceless wild animals, using the latest hi-tech equipment.

And of course there are tasteful ads for hunting gear for women.

Hey Teressa Groenewald-Hagerman, maybe you can get your own show now...

Another Twitiot

Britain's governing Labour Party says it has dumped a candidate in the national election after he made offensive comments about political foes on Twitter.

Stuart MacLennan, who was running in the Moray district in northern Scotland, made obscene attacks about rival parties and labeled elderly voters as "coffin dodgers."

The 24-year-old MacLennan -- who wasn't expected to win the seat -- is the first scalp of Britain's election campaign, which began Tuesday and ends with a May 6 poll.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown, whose Labour Party trails the Conservatives in opinion polls, said Friday that MacLennan's Twitter comments were "unacceptable" and demanded he resign. MacLennan said he "been stupid and rightly paid a high price."

* [Criticising taste of Fairtrade organic banana] Can I have a slave-grown, chemically enhanced, genetically modified one please?
* My gosh I've got a proper chav sitting opposite me this evening
* You know I think I might be completely sober for the first time in 4 days

Quebec, always the beacon of minority rights, shines even brighter

Premier Jean Charest and his cabinet have introduced sweeping legislation that effectively bars Muslim women from receiving or delivering public services while wearing a niqab.

According to the draft law, they would not be able to consult a doctor in a hospital, for example, or even attend classes in a university.

"Two words: Uncovered face," Charest told reporters during a press conference in Quebec City.

"The principle is clear."

Itawamba Agricultural High School: Scummiest people in North America

A bigot explains her reasoning:

Take it as you will, because I’m sure it sounds like we faked her out, but understand this- the decision NOT to attend prom had nothing to do with the school or with Constance’s sexual preferences; it had everything to do with proving we weren’t going to let her and the ACLU steamroll us into doing what Constance wanted. We flexed the muscle of the majority and we’ll suffer the consequences.

Congratulations Lindsey Begley, you earned a place in every documentary exposing bigotry from here on in. Well done!

Three people charged after 600 rabbits found in upscale house

Three Edmontonians are facing some hefty charges in the infamous "rabbit house" case.

Close to 600 rabbits were removed from a Haliburton Crescent house during the weekend of March 12th.

The animals ended up being humanely euthanized after the holding period, due to serious medical issues, and "Snuffles" - a deadly, untreatable rabbit disease.

Shelly, Edna and Quentin Zenner have been charged with causing distress, and three charges of failing in animal care duties. Each charge carries a maximum $20,000 dollar fine.

The trio may also never be allowed to care for an animal again.

U.S. court bends Internet over, has way with it

Oh goody! Giving corporation more power over the net. Who cares if they don't have the right?

A federal court threw the future of Internet regulations and U.S. broadband expansion plans into doubt Tuesday with a far-reaching decision that went against the Federal Communications Commission.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the FCC lacks authority to require broadband providers to give equal treatment to all Internet traffic flowing over their networks. That was a big victory for Comcast Corp., the nation's largest cable company, which had challenged the FCC's authority to impose such "network neutrality" obligations on broadband providers.

When talentless writers do Dr. Who

“Sci-fi has a long and happy history of sexy female characters and long may that continue.”

Ah ratings. Dr. Who has always been a bit of a dumb show anyway (IMHO), but the new people in charge want to make it dumber.

In one scene, Amy, played by the actress Karen Gillan, told the Doctor that her kissogram repertoire also included nuns and nurses’ outfits.

In another, she watched as the Doctor completely undressed in front of her, before donning his new outfit of a tweed suit and bow tie.

As he stripped, Amy’s fiancé, Rory, asked: “Aren’t you going to turn your back?” to which she replied, “no”, while running her eyes over the naked Doctor.

For the viewer, however, the Doctor’s physique was left to the imagination, with only a glimpse of his torso shown on screen.

Writing about Amy, one viewer in an online forum asked: 'Why did she dress up as a tarty policewoman? Surely that's not fitting for a family show.'

Another said: "They've completely demeaned Doctor Who by replacing good episode stories with slutty girls."

Guess the commenter has missed viewing recent sci-fi. It's all like that now.

Dumb Christians: Biology text book has "clear bias" against Christianity

The Dark Ages is again tugging at the door, trying for a come back.

A Farragut High School father is appealing the findings of a review committee that recommended the continued use of an honors biology textbook the man said has a questionable description of creationism...

...On page 319 of the text, the authors describe creationism as “the biblical myth that the universe was created by the Judeo-Christian God in 7 days.”

Zimmermann said the use of the word “myth” could “mislead, belittle and discourage students in believing in creationism and pointedly calls the Bible a myth.”

In place of this material, he recommended that “non-bias textbooks” be used.

Marcus Gee: Idiot of the Day

Mr Gee, lover of surveillance cameras, billboards and condos has struck again.

Yonge-Eglinton Square redevelopment

Yonge-Eglinton Square is one of the ugliest public spaces in the city. A desolate, windswept expanse of pavement on the northwest corner of that North Toronto intersection, it sucks the life out of what could be a dynamic urban crossroads. Why anyone would want to save it is a mystery.

Yet that is the sworn aim of the YES (for Yonge-Eglinton Square) Coalition, a group of neighbourhood activists and hanger-on politicians who want to block a plan to redevelop the space. At a demonstration on Monday, one advocate described the square as a “jewel” of the neighbourhood. Another, local Councillor Michael Walker, called it “a congregation, a centre of activity for the citizens of Toronto.” The coalition even has a fancy website complete with YouTube video showing people coming and going on the square, played at hurried-up speed to make the underused space look like a busy gathering place. It is anything but. Apart from a few plastic chairs, it lacks even a place to sit.

The coalition is hoping to raise such a stink that city council will overrule the recommendation of the city’s own planning staff and vote down the redevelopment plan. Let’s hope wiser heads prevail.

The man seems delighted anytime some 2 bit developer wants to throw up yet another "three-storey glass-enclosed mall".

It's people like him that are making Toronto as cold and lifeless as it is increasingly becoming.

Alex Kneppe: Dangerously f*cking immature

No one would give this dweeb a second thought, until he spews crap like this.

When American University published a column arguing that drunk women solicit sexual assault, it sparked a firestorm of controversy on campus -- enough to move 50 students to gather and discuss the column and others to remove hundreds of issues from Eagle stands in protest.

In the column, sophomore Alex Knepper expressed his controversial views on rape and feminism, among other things. Knepper wrote:

For my pro-sex views, I am variously called a misogynist, a rape apologist and -- my personal favorite -- a "pro-date rape protofascist."

Let's get this straight: any woman who heads to an EI party as an anonymous onlooker, drinks five cups of the jungle juice, and walks back to a boy's room with him is indicating that she wants sex, OK?

So rape is AOK!

Does God care if I'm a homophobic Bible thumbing pushy Christian?

God Hates You, he really does!

Woohoo! We can be intolerant cunts! It's in the Bible!

Does God care if I eat shellfish? Does God care if I don't kill my children for being disobedient?

If they aren't going to follow *all* God's cheery little rules, then why do they always zero in on the gay ones?

More Christians who can't seem to control their hatred, and want us all to join in too.

A large, electric-blue banner featuring an oddly tattooed youth and the question: “Does God care if I'm gay?” has been voluntarily removed by the Christian group behind the campaign after a flood of public complaints.

Bus Stop Bible Studies, whose stated mission is to put “God on every bus” in Canada, unveiled the ad on March 18 as part of an ongoing campaign featuring panels with twenty different “God questions” and a link to a website offering a corresponding answer to each. After receiving a number of complaints about the “Does God care...?” poster, the TTC sent the offending ad to its advertising review committee to evaluate whether the panels should remain posted. But, says TTC Director of Communications Brad Ross, "That point is moot now that Bus Stop Bible Studies has voluntarily decided to remove the ads."

One wishes groups like this would STFU and keep their Bible inspired bile to themselves, but on the other hand it is best these types are exposed for what they are.

ArcelorMittal Orbit: World's ugliest tower to be built in London


I know I know, they said the same thing about the Eiffel Tower when it was built, but the difference is this new one really *is* ugly.

London Mayor London Mayor Boris Johnson has revealed a model of the spiralling sculpture which Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor has designed to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The 115m tall piece, named the ArcelorMittal Orbit, will be placed in the Olympic Park and will be 22m higher than New York's Statue of Liberty.

The £19.1m design incorporates the five Olympic rings and will offer visitors panoramic views of London.
