Every day an Independant Scotland seems more and more like a good idea. Whatever will separate us from the Conservative party that's in power.

I was just coming to post about this.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Only cuz I don't wanna double post...

Dennis Farina died today :(

Damn shame.. Too early. He played a good asshole. I loved him in Get Shorty and Big Trouble.

He was from Chicago, we're master adepts at being assholes!

As someone who grew up on the east coast and then moved to Chicagoland 10 years ago, I must agree with you. I feel like living here has transformed me in some way over the years...

I'm having a hilarious mental image of a mass exodus resulting from this.

If you're from Boston or NYC then Chicago should feel like happy town by comparison

Actually NYC is fairly mellow, I felt.

Then again I come from California, which is the world capital of assholes, particularly SoCal.

Worst of all it's not even a case of even if you opt out you aren't affected. He plans to make looking at "extreme" pornography illegal, which includes BDSM. My anger isn't even about him trying to ban porn or throwing in the old "I'm doing it for the good of the children" routine, but this is censorship so blatant I don't know why people aren't rioting.

EDIT: And peoples obsession over this stupid fucking royal baby is helping brush it all under the carpet.

I don't get why anyone outside of England gives a shit about that damn baby, let alone anyone inside.

I hail from the Virginia Beach area. The asshole mentality ratio is definitely lower than Chi-City, but like any place, there are still plenty of them there...

Replace the UK with the US and this is exactly what's going on with the Abu Ghraib prison break. :(

Hundreds of escaped inmates, most of them confirmed terrorists (unlike Gitmo), but yeah, fuck that shit, the Royal Baby rules all.

George Takei posted this on Facebook.  The shitstorm that resulted was hilarious.  Among other things, I learned from a Brit that the reason the American Revolution was fought was to stop a ban on slave ownership...even though Britain didn't ban it until roughly fifty years later.

To add to the stuff you posted later, this also conveniently allows them to censor many other sites that they don't like because someone may upload something they deem offensive.  I wonder if they'll ban twitter since Adult Film Stars often upload nekkid pictures of themselves.

Not surprised it's not getting more attention here.  It should be though.
