For many reasons I am very happy to know that they got him alive.

Unfortunately, while doable, desalting water is quite expensive.  They're working on engineering solutions to make it cheaper, but these things take time.

People have put dollar values on every other natural resource, including water. As much of a douche as he sounds like, is it really that surprising to hear it?

Im more amazed he's got a camera crew to document it.

If you mean surprised that he was stupid enough to allow himself to be quoted saying that on camera, then I completely agree.

RE: Boston stuff, I'm glad that one is down (and thus not going to hurt any more people) but I can hope they can take the second one alive and get some information out of him about the bombing.  Also, between politicians already rushing to leverage this situation for political gain and the conservative sites my father reads picking apart every quote they can from the bombers and/or family members to get an "HOMG MUSLIMS ARE TEH EVIL" reaction I'm getting really sick of people--across the political spectrum--using this tragedy as an excuse to push their shit.

A video, not a picture, but it's great.

Also, nice story: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2372125/Wild-dogs-that-commute-from-suburbs-to-scavenge-in-city.html

EDIT: Here's a picture.

It would be nice, but you are talking about the media.

I know, I know.  Getting ratings and pushing a political viewpoint is consistently more important than accurate reporting and sensitivity when it comes to important issues.

The 70 dollar Sennheisers make everything sound like I'm listening to a radio. What price range am I supposed to look at before things start getting good?

Maybe they're actually awesome and all of my music is just horribly recorded and my other headphones were to crappy realize this. I have no idea.

That depends; if you're listening to MP3s everything will sound like you're listening to a radio no matter how good your headphones are because that's how they sound.  Are you using lossless or MP3s?  For that matter, are you using a pre-amp or running the headphones straight into a computer/cheap stereo?  All of these things make a difference.


On a different note, I don't think any of you are the sort of dick that will report Facebook pages as offensive because you happen to disagree with their political content (or some picture they show) but this is important anyway.  Definitely worth a read and (hopefully) worth sharing.

EDIT:  A friend from New Zealand recommended the Preacher series to me saying that he thought I'd enjoy the general vibe of it and also identify with it some being from and currently living in Texas.  There was a line in the second volume that brought that point home; "If the devil created Texas, as some think he did, this is where he rested on the seventh day."  The writer may be Irish, but he knows how other Americans feel about Texas...at least the ones on the internet. :D

Thanks for the link Dice.

What frustrates me most about this mess right now is that instead of waiting for evidence to come in  and covering the facts, various political groups and/or segments of the media (hardly a difference between the two, frankly) are busy throwing blame at each other for the attack.  For fuck's sake, have some respect for the victims and take a day off from screaming at each other and focus on covering the facts, finding out new information, and giving people information about charities that will let them help.

Jesus christ that fucking level!  That brings back traumatizing memories. :(

I think the LIKE A BOSS meme is overused but it certainly applies to this dog.

It's just a silly un-popularity contest.

This.  There's a difference between people trolling online and their real opinions about things.

The reveal of the actual painting at the end is what really sells it to me.  So awesome.

Indeed.  Most awesome scene.  I'll probably check out that movie now.
