Christmas Surprises

They're pitching them to me underhanded:

Gamestop Sells Porn-Filled Nintendo 3DS To Santa For 5-Year-Old

Let's see, in no particular order:

I know what I want for a gift come next Xmas.

I see a market niche here.

"The 3DS came from GameStop and was supposedly refurbished. Instead, nine pornographic pictures remained in its library." That's not porn-filled in my book. I'd would have demanded a refund or a replacement that's actually filled with porn.

Shouldn't Happen To A Dog

I just finished reading another warm holiday story, this one about the cops shooting a dog in the owner's yard while the cops were searching for fugitives in the vicinity.

I can only draw from the large number of such incidents that this is somewhere in the police general policies and procedures: 'Dogs need to be shot. If you're out on a call, and there's a dog nearby, shoot it. This particularly pertains to raids or even visits to the wrong address.'

We can be grateful that they only use the taser on the mentally challanged, old women, and children. So far.

Government Control Of Technology

I saw this over on Facebook:

And commented:

Exactly! No one needs a vehicle that can go more than 55 mph. I think the Government should expand its powers beyond controlling the technology allowed for firearms (e.g. 30 round magazines) to ALL technology. You don't need a hard drive larger that 200Gb. Large hard drives should be outlawed. You'll just use the extra space to store pirated videos and music. And likely porn, too!

New Informant

Added to my informants:

Taking Sense Away

"Confessions of a Former TSA Screener. Views and opinions do not necessarily represent those of the TSA. Obviously."

One of my favorite observations:

"I’ve known a few screeners who went from TSA on to the FBI, and who assured me that they pretty much have to do their best to hide their previous employer from their new FBI buddies in much the same way that a child molester tries to hide his crime from prison mates. "
