Stuff around the net

No links since internet problems.

The Ban Bossy meme was started to let women support Hillary, but it may backfire because the victims of most "bossy" women are other women...

the sociopathic porn star?

NO: "Cutters" are borderline by definition...

Indeed, one of the ethical challenges of medicine is to try to help these unstable, manipulative patients without losing your temper. The "good" news for docs is that they tend to doctor shop...


via Drudge: 'NOAH' REVIEW: 'Aggressive Environmentalism'...

At least they blamed the flood on Mother Gaia, not Jehovah...


Uh, maybe it wasn't terrorism but the lithium batteries? (see earlier post linking to a Wired article).

Headline of an article from 2011: 
Battery-Fire Crashes Seen Every Other Year as U.S. Rules Fought...

more spying stuff: The USNavy knows you got a parking ticket?

If it wasn't for Drudge, these things would be overlooked by busy folks.


Pope warns mobsters they are going to hell.

"This life that you live now won't give you pleasure. It won't give you joy or happiness," he said. "Blood-stained money, blood-stained power, you can't bring it with you to your next life. Repent. There's still time to not end up in hell, which is what awaits you if you continue on this path."

When I hear a lot of the western church's misinterpretation of the Pope (by both conservative and social action types), I don't listen to them: I view the Pope's words via the third world lens.

 If you aren't worried about the USNavy collecting information on your speeding tickets, the NSA collecting your emails of LOLCat or monitoring your telephone calls to mom, well, just worry about that huge database they have.

Look what China can do with their Great Firewall of China.
the government revealed that irregulars bring the total Internet censorship manpower up to two million. This is for keeping some 600 million Chinese Internet users under control.

they mention those little indications that not everything is hunkey dorey in China...a lot of the censorship is about corruption...and that lots of rich folks are quietly moving away...

which makes Pinoys worry, since there is nothing like a little war to distract folks (wag the dog anyone?) and we are the weakest link...
