The sound of one hand hitting my forehead...

Decision delayed for '.xxx' domain

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Internet's key oversight agency agreed Tuesday to a one-month delay in approving a new ".xxx" domain name after the U.S. government cited "unprecedented" opposition to a virtual red-light district.

Ok... I understand that people don't want to sanction porn on the web BUT... stupid people, with a .xxx domain YOU CAN EASILY BLOCK SITES FROM YOUR KIDS!!!!

Its simple, when all the porn is on one domain the browser can say "oh .xxx, you're not allowed to go there"

Stupid people, this is a GOOD thing... no more going to a site you think is for kids and seeing a giant penis, instead you can go to whitehouse.gov to see a giant penis.

Hmmm... will the whitehouse website have to be .xxx?

Bitches need to stop whining...

Games, DVDs Responsible for Box-Office Collapse, Say Experts

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! Fer crying in your multimillion dollar milk out loud did you ever stop to think that it may have something to do with the fact that prices are too high and movies nowadays just SUCK!

Really, look at this years line up, remakes, sequels, Tom Cruise!!! Not to mention in nNYC the price is now $10.50 for a ticket, and you have to sit through "the twenty" 20 minutes of advertising while you wait for the movie to begin. Think about it, War of the Worlds may have done well in the box office but it was complete shyte. Top that with his crazed antics on the talk shows... WHO CARES?

The movie and recording industry are so quick to blame outside forces when it comes to poor sales. They never stop to say: "maybe the public is sick of crap". Plenty of movies this year were Netflix ready, not worth dealing with lines and paying $10.50 for a movie that is crap... I WANT MY MONEY BACK TOM!!!!

Seriously War of the Worlds was shyte.

So, how bout this, make some fresh movies that actually live up to the hype. Batman lived up to the hype, surprising, since it is the first movie to do so in a long time.

Stop blaming pirates, DVDs, video games, anything other then the TRUTH.

1. Ticket prices are way to high (you greedy bastards)
2. The Twenty (I should charge you for forcing me to watch that crap)
3. No good movies.

Make some good movies and the people will come. Lower your prices and the people will come. Start looking in, before looking out.

I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU... MISTER PRESIDENT!

Like so many of my generation I fondly remember a rather grizzled mustached father confronting his drum stick wielding, head phone wearing son with a cigar box full of drugs (where the hell did the kid get the cigar box? That always bothered me). This was the latest anti-drug PSA with the iconic "I learned it by watching you!" punch line.

Too bad there isn't a "take responsibility for your own actions" psa, maybe they could include a half-drunken george bush confronting a delirious Kim Jong-Il about nuclear weapons and the punch line could be "I learned it by watching you"

Ok, a bit extreme but my point being, there was a set of tapes recently released of conversations the george bush jr. had with a supposed family friend. Included in those tapes, the then non-president lamented about children wanting to do drugs, because "the president had". A nobel sentiment, not wanting the children of america to take a bad example from their leader... but what about lying? What about aggression? What about not taking responsibility for your actions? What are those actions saying to the youth of america?

Having driven the highways of the east coast recently, I can for a fact say that the aggression level and selfishness of the average american is getting worse. Wether its slow drivers in the passing lane, or being cut off without a turn signal, things, to me, seem to be getting worse. "Excuse me" has become the catch-all get out of jail free card to excuse someone from not paying attention. When someone bumps into you, because they are obviously not paying attention, they casually say "Excuse me", well, I'm sorry but there is no excuse for you, pay fucking ATTENTION.

American's have become so self-centric that they seldom see what's outside their own little universe, and to be honest, with the antics of this administration, coupled with celebrity and sports stars, who can blame them. When the leader of the free world refuses to admit he's made a mistake or learn from them, how do we expect the average american to? The new catch-all excuse for selfish actions will simply be "Well bush did it".

We really need to start thinking about things outside of our own universe, I know its hard, but when you are walking down a busy street, and you see someone you know, don't stop short, instead move to the side so as not to block the plethora of people behind you.

When driving on the highway, don't sit in the passing lane, if you aren't passing anyone. Most highways nowadays have three lanes, you can easily block traffic in the middle lane as the passing lane. and PLEASE O PLEASE, don't be like the people in PA and speed up when people pass you only to drive slow when they are behind you. I know your life sucks, and you hate your job, but PLEASE, do something to fix that, don't take it out on me.

We really need to get away from this "how does it affect me" way of thinking, this "get rich quick", "I'gots ta get mine" "bling-bling" attitude. Remember when NWA and Public Enemy sang about socially relevant issues? Instead of how much money and bling they have?

This really has to stop, but until the people in positions of influence don't stop, THAT MEANS YOU MISTER "I can't name one thing I did wrong" PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH JR (I can name several mistakes right now) start taking responsibility for their actions, and put money behind them.

One of the ten commandments says "Thou shalt have no other gods before me", well the thing is, money, power, celebrity, are all considered to be "gods before me".
