People are pretty dumb. I remember the story about the kids at a high school foot ball game that help up a sign with the "u mad bro" thing on it when the opposing team lost. Not knowing what it meant the other school made a big huff because they thought it was racist against the black players. Yeah, some people should be sterilized.

I don't think the "manitee grey" story is as much funny as it is a WTF moment. You would expect that SOMEONE might have noticed that naming a plus-sized garment after such a sweet but famously girthy creature might have unfortunate connotations. I mean really.

And that WTF element to the story IMO is what makes it newsworthy. I don't mean front page above-the-fold newsworthy of course...

This. But how on earth did Target miss the connection? And what sort of marketing allure would a freaking Manatee provide in a plus-sized dress line aside from the obvious, insulting correlation?

Some of you may have heard this little piece of amazingness.
Rep. DeGette (D-CO) has this to say about the efficacy of banning high-capacity magazines:



Apparently she's heading up the ban in her state. Don't you think the person in charge of implementing such a solution should know the first freaking thing about how magazines work?
She thinks you can only use them once, therefore the 40 something million we currently have in circulation that would be grandfathered in will eventually be "used up".. wow. Just... wow.

I think there should be a new federal law that bans lawmakers from making any new laws until they have taken a class to learn about the things they're going to be restricting or allowing. We'd probably have far less ineffectual, ridiculous laws out there.

Guess everyone is not surprised at the ignorance of some of our law makers. Would have thought this would have generated some discussion. Personally, I find it pretty eye-opening to the source of our real issues.
The people writing our laws are far removed from the reality of what those laws are about. I guess that's probably common knowledge by now, but for as politically vocal and active as our generation is, you'd think this would be on the top of the list.

She most likely didn't study/understand the research that her assistants provided for her. It's a good thing that laws don't pass just because of one person's vote. The ineffectual laws that do get passed most of the time has nothing to do with the actual law itself but just favors that need to repaid for other favors behind the scenes.

Man Murdered At Internet Cafe, Gamers Continue Playing


Damn those hardcore Taiwanese gamers!

Quote:
After the stabbing took place, several people simply stood around the manís body. One female gamer reportedly continued to play her game despite the fact that blood had splattered on her clothes. The murder was captured on the cafeís surveillance system.
