Your stealing my news bit.

*glare*

I'm really surprised by TD pussing out of the elections. Also, that was a lame case. I wasn't predicting it was going to the supreme court. They don't deal it "theoretical issues" nor do they deal in unbased constitutional claims. Basically that guy was under arrest in the civil sytem and trying to get off of charges of public endangerment by pointing to the fact that he was originally arrested by the military.

PS - Fat kids, cute or creepy? On the one hand, Chunk from the Goonies is awesome. On the other, there are alot of little fat kids in horror movies. Speaking of which...
PPS - I'm really jazzed about Silent Hill. Like Alot.

I posted news before you graduated. You just reinvigorated it.

I also offer links that don't require registering at NYtimes. Nyaaa.

Hey, just 'cause I had sex with your mom, doesn't mean that it isn't moocowrich's thing.

Fat kids are hella creepy as demonstrated below.

I am very excited abiyt Silent Hill as weel. It looks like they did a decent job. Fox and I want to play through all the games before it is released which may be impossible at this point.

I would not recommend playing through 2. It doesn't play that great, but the story to it is awesome. Instead, sit down and read the plot. It's less a narrative about the town (like 1 and 3) and more a psychological horror peice. I've really been wanting to sit down and play through 4. That's my project after I finish the Resident Evil Series.

But yeah, I'm impressed with the trailers I've seen so far.

Actually, there were grounds they could have taken the case, had they wanted to do so. One of the exceptions for mootness is if the event is "capable of repetition" - and since the government reserved the right to reclassify him as an enemy combatant once again the Court could have relied on that to state that the case was not moot - had they been inclined to resolve it on the merits.

I can't decide if this comment deserves a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down icon.

I mean, the one is so good, but the other is so bad, and the third is just funny.

I hadn't seen the DeLay story, presumably because Mr Lounge is a slacker jerk that doesn't share news with anyone.

Whatever whatever, I do what I want.

Besides, the DeLay story is populating the front page of every American news paper this morning. I care about real news.

It's still good news. Not much else national news is all that good. Though the Thai PM stepping down is absurd given his reasoning, it's playground politics and pouting, but it doesn't have much local appeal. H

I PLAY TO MY AUDIENCE!

Ha ha ha...

Thank you for the laugh. The problem is the carseats not the fat fucking kids? Ha ha ha!
We're fucked up.

From this story.

Re: Ha ha ha...

This is yet another reason I will never have children. What if for some reason, despite my best efforts, this little stranger that will rip my vaginal canal into shreds while forcing its way into my life with a demanding wail (see how maternal I am?) looks like THAT!?! How the hell am I supposed to even pretend to be a good parent when I am so creeped out by my offspring that they make me want to become bulemic out of sympathy?

I can say this to you, you're my friend, you know I'm not a horrible person.

Re: Ha ha ha...

Yeah. It's gross like that big old creepy sunburned vampire in Blade I.

Re: Good news/bad news

Yeah - just recall that there are over a dozen dem seats up for grabs. The dems have to NET fifteen seats - so its possible, but by no means a certainty.
