I go to conventions a few times a year, often with committee meetings held in rooms with carpet equivalently awful to that in the article. As much as I would have loved to be able to disappear at some of those meetings, never once have I thought of actually dressing like the carpet- until now. Or instead of disappearing, maybe I could just lay low (floor level) until I'm needed for a motion or a vote...
My next committee meeting just got a lot more interesting...
The RIAA is missing so many opportunities to improve their business, but it's not missing any to make themselves look like idiots.
Here's my interpretation of the RIAA's claim:
RIAA: "There's a whorehouse on somewhere Google Ave. Well there might be. OK, there's that one lady who dresses funny sometimes. Anyway, we're going to need the entire street dug up, and put up signs directing people looking for a whorehouse to my 'House of Lotion' instead."
Genius. And I just love how they compare their content to child porn.
1. Remove E-ZPass from windshield.
2a. Place E-ZPass on head under tin foil hat (on seat or dash but under hat would work as well, but would leave your brain vulnerable to whatever you were wearing the hat for).
Or have some fun with it, mess with their readings:
- take it on the subway
- run through Central Park with it
- put one on slow-moving vendor cart
- tie one to a pigeon
- make fake transmitters, be everywhere at once or time them so it looks like you're moving down Broadway at Mach 3.
- use fake transmitters to generate thousands of fake signals, all moving with you. Laugh as they report the biggest traffic jam ever.
It's evil because the MPAA has a patent on it (as a business method) and unless you are licensed to use it you are STEALING from them! Thief! They will find you (or someone else in your IP block) and make you (or them) pay!
Note that they also have a separate patent on kicking kittens on the internet (emphasis theirs).
Don't forget there are those who are unable to get vaccinations due to age and those who have compromised immune systems. First dose for MMR is at 12 months.
Hate to say it, but this is a case where "think of the children!" is actually appropriate. And "think of the chemo patients!" and "think of the already sick with xxx patients! (where xxx means another disease, not explicit entertainment).
How is this even helping children? So we have a reduction in viewers of:
(Finnish population/World population)*(% of Finnish population that are sick pedos)*(% of Finnish pedos who don't know how to use a web proxy) = ? (I'm guessing less than 100)
What they should do is redirect the IP addresses (verified, not using their current list) to a honeypot, so they can at least bust some pedos. It would probably be more effective than playing whack-a-mole with their blacklist.
Might be a technicality, but even dumber than it seems
Government employees are not allowed to have classified documents on unsecured computers. Common sense is not allowed to be factored in. Previously, government employees were told that if they downloaded classified documents from Wikileaks, online newspapers, or other publicly available sources that their computers would have to be sterilized. In that limited context, one employee (Grayson) sending these classified documents and 'contaminating' dozens or hundreds of other computers is a huge problem. It seems like a solution would be an exception for leaked and publicly available documents, except that a) that would make sense, and b) some people would still like to keep this info hidden. It's almost as if they think they can stick the heads of every other Senator in the sand and expect them to stay there.
Well, I'm just a(n) <Insert Average Job> from <Random Rural Area> but I was wondering if you had done a similar statistical review of some non-controversial books. This would strengthen your astroturfing claim if no other reviews show similar patterns.
