Paul Lukacs is a blogger who does business in China all the time. Recently on a return trip from China he refused to answer any of the silly "business or pleasure" questions which resulted in blowing the mind of the Customs Agent that was asking him the questions. They detained him for 30 minutes while they tried to come up with something to charge him with but ultimately let him go. In the comments section of his original post, lots and lots of people called him a douchebag (which he is) but a lot also commended him for standing up for his constitutional rights of privacy (for which he SHOULD be commended).
In answer to those questions, he posted 10 points which show a great understanding of the constitution and US law. The takeaway is this. Anytime you speak with a cop, you run the risk of lieing (accidentally or not) which could result in you going to jail like Martha Stewart. This is a must read.
I am gonna tip my hand here and announce that I will probably be voting every incumbent out of office this year. That said, if I lived the the 36th Congressional district in California, I would be voting for Mattie Fein because incumbent, Jane Harman, is apparently the girlfriend of Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Parody is the foundation of the First Amendment!
So...those repressed childhood memories of the priest molesting you in the confessional? Yeah, you made them up (or your psychologist did). Turns out that traumatic events like being sexually assaulted are actually made STRONGER by the trauma, rather than the folklore idea of them being buried. It makes sense. Some of my strongest memories are the worst memories from my past: first time I was beaten up, when my ex cheated on me, the time Bailey almost died, etc.
So where do those memories come from? Most likely crazy people looking for sympathy or inept psychologists.
Chinese authorities are throwing a fit with people named Shan because it contains a rare Chinese character that doesn't exist in most word processors. As a result, they are forcing them to change their names.
In an effort to make bullets less lethal, the EPA wants to prohibit the use of lead in the manufacturing of said bullets. Wrap your mind around that one.
From the Youtube comments:
abxxxh: Sweet jesus I'm chinese and I understand the whole thing, I'm going to dip myself into a ocean of brain bleach right now.
It is supposed to be a romantic music about boy wooing girls, but it turns out to be totally risqué, singers are bragging about their sexual prowess, trading insults against each other about physical traits, hammy jokes about 'loaded 20-shot pistol', 'drinking the gruel', and jokes of Ménage à trois. Consider youself lucky if you don't speak chinese. :(
That's the advice from this ad from Summer's Eve. This reminds me of the public service announcement: Women - Know your limits.
Hopefully Michael and Karen will avoid Prince George's Hospital if they get sick in their new house...08/25/10
Joseph Wheeler was involved in a very serious car accident and woke up in Prince George's Hospital in UPPER MARLBORO, MD. He claims that when he asked for some food from the nurse, she told him he couldn't eat because of his upcoming surgery to remove a cancerous growth. Apparently they mis-identified him. When no explanation of this could convince the hospital, he attempted to leave.
The hospital rent-a-cops allegedly responded with EXTREME PREJUDICE! After his escape to a real hospital, he is suing Prince George's Hospital for $12.7 million.
